Well, they come and go and the Pro 300 Series Tactical Flashlight by Elite Tactical went.
If you want to read about this light go to my Wsky review here – it's the same flashlight with just a different name – really.
So, what's not to like?
If you've read any of my reviews you'll understand that I cover the truth about all kinds of tactical gear. Unfortunately, there is a flood of lower level products that are essentially sold on price point. By that I mean, cheap.
I have an issue with that.
I believe tactical gear is often used for critical support issues and cheap or unreliable gear is effectively dangerous.
Listen, understandably, most people are concerned about price and quite frankly that's where much of the lower quality gear wins – they are definitely cost-effective. Additionally, most people are not trained to understand what is important and what is not important in selecting tactical gear. I mean, that's for the military and first responders – right?
But, that's where I beg to differ. You see, it all depends on how you will be using the various tactical gear. If it's checking out a dark corner in your basement, you can use your smartphone for that. But, if it identifying a home invader, you better hope you have more than your smartphone with you.
In fact, you really need a tactical flashlight you can depend your life upon and that of your family.
Want an all around, reasonably price tactical light that you can depend on? Here's the Fenix PD25 with 500 lumens on one CR123A or 16340 battery. Constructed of aircraft-grade aluminum which is hard-anodized, waterproof and has a lifetime warranty. I cover this great light here.
Need more, here's a light that can be used in home invasion type emergencies. This tactical unit, the Klarus XT2CR is specifically programmed to provide immediate momentary bright light at 1600 lumens, and a disabling strobe – two feature necessary to this type of situation. You can read more about this light here.
Finally, want just a pocket every day carry light that is not only bright but also has strobe? The Klarus Mi7 which is covered in this article may just fit your needs. Don't let its size fool you it boasts 700 lumens and fits into a jean key pocket.
Become a knowledgeable buyer, you're life, and the lives of your loved ones may depend on it.
Always be prepared. Be well.
