Supernova Guardian 1300XL

This product was recommended by Robert Johnson from Sawinery

I especially like this product as it has a variety of light modes you can choose from and with it’s aircraft grade aluminum alloy finish and waterproof casing, it ensures that it will survive any accidental drops. Another grade feature is that grooves at the head of the flashlight which you can use to break a window or for self defense.

Streamlight 90540 Survivor

This product was recommended by Marc Bromhall from Beginner Surf Gear

We like this flashlight because it sits at a right angle which means you stand it on the base and have it shine on you while doing stuff like putting up a tent. It also has both low and high inseinty modes which allow you to adapt the brightness of the light to the surroundings.

Streamlight 88850 PolyTac LED Flashlight

This product was recommended by Timothy Hackett from Airsoft Core

This right here is the best balance between effectiveness, ruggedness, and value for an everyday carry light. I’ve use this flashlight in self defense drills (I do Brazilian Jiujitsu and routinely train personal defense techniques) and it is easily capable of blinding opponents to give you an upper hand. Additionally, it is quite rugged having been put through the washer and dryer 3 times (yes, I’m that forgetful) and it works like a champ.
