@theJollySin - I asked my SAR mates and they said the same. They do have huge lights on the vehicles/helicopters though, and they all rate the LED Lenser torches.

comment Tie in to harness, top to bottom or bottom to top
can you describe what you mean - tie what to harness? If you have a picture - give us a link and we can edit it into your question (you will be able to do this yourself when you have more rep)

comment How to estimate the depth of a pool of water from a distance above?
To estimate distances/heights/depths, parallax is very useful. It requires you to move sideways and estimate the difference in what you can see from each point. Basically you use a bit of pythagoras theory to get a close approximation. 3 subjective - yes, but pretty useful in those conditions.
