    For a measly $150 more you could get the MSA Sordin Supremes. I just got mine a month ago and the quality is top notch. Fully water-proof, and has a jack for coms or mp3 players. You get 600 hours on 2 AAA's.

    I don't know about lightest but, I have Peltor Comtacs and they are great. I looked into electronic hearing protection for a long time and these were what I ended up with.

    I got mine from Tactical Command Industries (www.tacticalcommand.com). They are on closeout and are the 1st generation ones. Someone told me that the 1st generation ones are actually the better ones because of the circuitry. They are presently $155. I know that's more than you want to spend but, I have seen these for sale elsewhere at more than double that price. So, maybe you might be willing to spend a little more for a great deal.

    Keep in mind.. I only recommend the Tac -6's based on what the original poster was looking for.

    My Tac 6's sit in a box as I use Sordin's.....

    For the majority of users..Tac-6's will work for there needs...

    I would not rule out a set of custom ear plugs.

    I went to my local audiologist and had a custom pair of ear plugs cast. Investment was at $100 plus tax. It has been the best money spent. Took about two weeks to get once they made a mold. You have a couple of options. I went for the solid plug, but you can get, for a lack of a better term, an "insert" in the plug that will only allow a certain decibel level of sound through, very similar to the Surefire EarPro. Once you get used to them AND they have been properly fitted for you I can wear them all day and be just fine. I can take them in and out quickly. I had them put a small lanyard type string between them so I can keep track of them when I take them out. I have even started caring them with me on the job (EMT/FF) for some of the noise hazards that I encounter.

    I also enjoy the fact that my earpro do not interfere with my hat or sun/protective glasses.

    Just my $0.02 :-)

    Sordin's are king, followed by the COMTAC II's.

    The TAC 6's have have nasty habit of breaking (gone through two pair myself and have seen many others fail).
