Big lumens

While the specs sounded out of this world I couldn't help but scoop up the Klarus Mi7. It has some big claims but does it stack up? Let's take a closer look.


Little big light

Looking to lighten your load? there are options here, while maybe not the most tactical lights a backup is also important for if something fails or if 1000 lumens just isn't needed. There are few pocket options that have the power to stand up to larger models but the Lumintop AAA is an exception. If you... Continue Reading →

It's a Ultrafire which I have owned in the past with some success however in this case it includes a remote switch for weapon mounting. I can't comment on how well it holds up... Continue Reading →


The Tube from Nitecore has always been ver popular (see for a long time. Now it looks like the company is branching out and offering some newer and feature packed options.
