42nd Street Photo recommends the Surefire LX2-HA-WH LumaMax LED Flashlight

SureFire flashlights are recognized around the world for delivering maximum power in a minimal form-factor. Their flawless high-output beams, exceptional quality, and extreme durability qualify them as force-multipliers that could temporarily blind, unbalance, and disorient a threat.

The LX2 is a compact dual-output flashlight featuring a virtually indestructible power-regulated LED emitter, a Total Internal Reflection (TIR) lens, and a smooth fluted body design that takes it easy on clothing. The LX2’s tactically-correct two-stage pushbutton tailcap switch lets you instantly select output level: press for a momentary-on 15-lumen long-runtime low beam suitable for general night use or close work; press further for a momentary-on 200-lumen high beam—ten times the light of a big two-D-cell flashlight; twist for constant-on low beam, twist further for constant-on high beam.

Built to last, the LX2 is not a generic hardware store look-alike light – it’s the real deal. This illumination tool is tough, waterproof, and it won’t let you down. The aluminum housing is hard-anodized for serious wear-resistance, and it’s o-ring sealed for true waterproof performance. The crenellated bezel allows enough light to spill out to read a map or a note when the light is face-down – it’s also an effective visual deterrent when facing an attacker. Hopefully you’ll never need to prove how tough the LX2 is – but it’s good to know that it’ll be ready if you do.
