Summary

This is a terrific little tool to have on you when you're around the campsite. It's so lightweight and small, but packs a big punch that'll help you maneuver your way around.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Small
  • Bright

Cons

  • Hard to use switch with gloves on
  • No focus

I bought this little light because I had a store credit that I needed to use up at sierratradingpost.com. I'm glad I got it! This thing is small, but it is so bright for how little it is. You wouldn't want this to hike out of wilderness in the dark, but it's great for finding your way around the campsite. 

I actually looped a lanyard from an old camera onto it and tie it to one of my belt loops and it stayed out of the way, was always accessible, and didn't take up pocket space. I loved having it b/c it barely weighs anything and I wasn't constantly having to try and figure out what I did with my flashlight. 

I absolutely hate it when I misplace my flashlight when I'm camping.... because it's dark.... and I don't have a light to find it. Using this Pulsar II light on a lanyard I always had it with me and didn't have to worry about it. It took the hassle out it. 

There are 2 ways to use the light. You can either:

  • Squeeze to turn it on and it will turn off when you release pressure. This is great for quick uses.

or

  • Slide the switch up and it will stay on until you slide the switch back down. This is good for hands-free use or to use it for longer periods of time. 

I would recommend this little light be a part of everyone's camping gear!
