    I need help because after searching for so long I can't decide what I want.

    Needs to be under 150$

    Id rather it be over 250+ lumens. And have a strobe setting.

    Not over 5 inches in length.

    Also I would like it to have the option of a deep carry clip.

    Don't care about what batteries as long as it functions good.

    Personally, I carry a Fenix TK11; but if I were in the market for another handheld tac light, today, I'd go for the TK15. It's a small, full-featured, and incredibly powerful tac light.

    I use my Fenix tac light for, 'serious work' around the farm at night; and the TK11 is the best handheld light I've ever used. I don't see how you could, possibly, go wrong with a Fenix TK15! (Mine is really well-made.)

    You could try looking at some 4sevens Quarks. The price isn't too steep and depending on the type of quark, it can be over 250 Lumens. You can try the 4sevens Quark QP2A-X. Excellent light. 280 lumens, around 6 inches, nice pocket clip, high quality...etc.

    The Fenix TK15 is a great light that meets or exceeds all your criteria, except for size, it's about 5.7 inches long.
    I have been using a TK15 for about one year. It comes with a good holster that keeps the light handy. It can be carried in the pockets of cargo pants. I think the size would make it awkward to clip to a hat brim. Headlamps of similar outputs would better serve this purpose, such as the Fenix HP 15 or HP 25.

    The Fenix PD32 meets your requirments and is exactly 5 inches long.

    • 4 brightness levels plus Strobe, SOS:
    • Turbo - 340 lumens - 2 hr. 30 min.
    • High - 135 lumens - 8 hr. 15 min.
    • Mid - 70 lumens - 16 hr. 30 min.
    • Low - 5 lumens - 245 hr.
    Happy shopping!

    Thrunite TN 2012 is 5.6 inches and a great light.

    IF you want something shorter the D25C by eagletac is very nice. Has a nice clip and holster as well.
