Elzetta flashlight ( Amazing )

Recommended Posts

Have gone through 7 flashlights so far that stoped  working simply they were either droped in the snow, or rain got to them when I’m working outdoors doing something etc. They range from $5-60 each. Doing the math, I’ve spent likely close to $200 for all of them more or less. So I’ve been looking around for a water proof flashlight for about 2 years now that can  handle the elements that Mother Nature gives us.. Yes it’s pricey, but theirs no manufactured flashlight that comes remotely close to it at present time.

When it come to a waterproof flashlight, I’ll bite the bullet if I decide to purchase one, hey I can use the recite as a business right off. Certainly a win win in my thoughts.

Did purchase a Nebo  Larry Boss flashlight for my work about a week ago at a good deal for $53 taxes in from police ordnance in Canada. EBay & Amazon are selling them at about $70-80 with shipping.

Time will tell if this one will hold out, as time pass by.

I've had excellent luck with Streamlight flashlights - I was whitetail hunting in West Virginia, and dropped my old Streamlight Scion rechargeable in the woods. Didn't realize it until I got back home to Maine. It was a nasty winter that year, I figured it was a goner. 

The following year, I was keeping an eye open for the light, just in case. Lo and behold, i saw its shiny black anodized case sticking out from under some oak leaves. Score! Threw it back on the charger, and it's still working fine to this day - 10 years later.

I've left Streamlight Polytac lights and Microstreams outdoors, given hem to my teenager to use (and consequently abuse) - they never stop working.

I've had superb luck with Fenix lights these days, and it's what I mostly use. I have a PD35 TAC on the bedstand, and a TK20R in the bug out bag - it can be recharged via USB port, which is awesome when combined with a portable solar charger. The fact that it's watertight and so heavily built you could bludgeon an elk to death with it doesn't hurt either.

Do have 2 streamlights, not for EDC , their more for my firearms.

Both are TLR-1 .

They have held up quite well for their intended use.

Looked at the Fenix PD-35 in my area when they first came out, at $129 Plus taxes, your looking at $146 Canadian funds. I dout any Fenix flashlight would survive if it was sumerged under water & the parts removed & asembled back together, like the original first post with the video footage of the Elzetta flashlight.

If theirs any manufactured company that can match & beat it at a lower price point, I’d be all over it.

    • This is a great inspiring article. I am pretty much pleased with your good work. You put really very helpful information.
       
    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
