Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Price Paid: Approx. $100

I purchased this expensive flashlight gambling that it would actually be worth the extra money. I was looking for the smallest and most durable flashlight I could find that would put out some real candle power.

Well this is it! Was my mainstay for a week in Glacier National Park's backcountry and showed me the way when I was being Bear Aware at night. Puts out amazing beam for its size. I'm a lifer now. The first thing I'll pack after my food and water. Do it.

When I received this light I wasn't sure what I was going to use it for. It sure was small enough to be put in an emergency kit or glove box, but it was almost too powerful not to be used regularly.

This light has found a permanent home in a holster on the shoulder strap of my Search and Rescue pack. It is hella bright and its compact size allows it to be carried almost unnoticed until needed. I've used it to look for victims in dense wooded areas, and under wood piles and vehicles in urban settings. Others on my team are carrying 2-3 lb. 6v box-type lights that can't touch the brightness of this little marvel. They're jealous.

One aspect of this light that is a pro and a con is the size. I dropped it in the snow once and it just disappeared! Luckily I found it.

I would like to see this light offered in a brighter color for outdoor use - after all, it is called the " Outdoorsman." We're not all tactical police officers!

Here's what other sites are saying:

The EL2 Outdoorsman from Surefire is a compact (pocket sized), dual-output LED flashlight with extended runtime. Its virtually indestructible, two-stage light-emitting diode (LED) light source produces a smooth, pre-focused beam that, at maximum output, is three times brighter than that of a big two-D-cell flashlight. At its low setting it produces a useful three lumens of light and continues producing useful light levels for 100 hours on a set of lithium batteries. Small size (it's lightweight enough to clip to hat brim for hands-free operation), dual output, extended runtime, and 10-year battery shelf life make the E2L perfect for camping, backpacking, travel, emergency/disaster preparedness kits, or as an everyday-carry for general use. Surefire EL2 Outdoorsman Featsures: Dual-output LED light source has no filament to burn out or break, lasts for thousands of hours Rugged aerospace-grade aluminum body, Mil-Spec Type III hard anodized in olive drab O-ring sealed, weatherproof Total Internal Reflection (TIR) lens Pocket clip Tailcap switch: press for momentary-on, press further to click constant-on Switch lockout prevents accidental activation during transport or storage
