SureFire Stiletto Pro Flashlight

Part of my EDC essentials is a small low profile flashlight. On the day-to-day, I switch through a variety, but most are just pen lights or even smaller. The only drawback with these units is the light output. They are simply underpowered. I went searching for something about the size of a pocket knife that could light up a room. I landed on the Stiletto Pro – Multi-Output LED Flashlight. My favorite part besides the 1,000 lumens, and reversible pocket clip, is that its shape is untraditionally flat and resembles a pocket knife rather than a tube. My least favorite part is the $229 cost, but the micro-usb rechargeable battery reduces the cost of operation. I also know SureFire is trusted for producing high-quality goods that first responders and the military relies on. 

SureFire Stiletto Pro Main Features:

  • Variable 1,000 / 300 / 25 lumens light output triple output activation 
  • 1.0 / 1.5 / 23.5 hours of run time
  • 9 hz strobe w/ multiple strobe modes
  • 142 meters in lighting distance
  • Maxvision beam reflector projects a wide flood beam for ideal situational awareness
  • Primary programmable switch for tactical or task preferences
  • Tactical tail switch activates high output
  • Integrated MICRO-USB rechargeable lithium polymer battery
  • LED Fuel Gauge allows easy tracking battery charge/discharge status
  • IPX7 waterproof rated hard anodized Die-cast aluminum  body
  • Spring steel pocket clip is reversible or bezel-up for bezel-down carry

SureFire G2X Pro Flashlight

With the EDC light on my hip or clipped to my pocket, my vehicle always is loaded with an additional flashlight. Beyond that, the camping supplies will get a lamp and another flashlight. You know the old saying; One is none. Two is one.” and so on. Having a good quality flashlight in the vehicle, is as important as having a good quality truck gun. I went back to SureFire and looked for the most standard small flashlight in the catalog. The G2X Pro Dual-Output LED Flashlight fit the bill. This $79 unit is the entry level hook to a SureFire customer. Once you try, you will be a returning customer.

One disaster after another lead me back towards investing in high-quality knives. Right now, one of the best knife manufactures is Benchmade. 

 

When looking at their impressive lineup of blades to showcase to the Off Road Xtreme audience, we landed and the ultralight EDC  Benchmade Bugout family pocket knives.
