5 tactical flashlights that will light up the sky in 2016!

light-cone-314072_1280-textI remember when I was a child the common flashlights were made of plastic, with a little breakable bulb inside.

Nowadays regular flashlights have become much better. Most of the time, they can handle water and battery life is pretty acceptable.

In a survival or personal / family emergency situation though, you would need something more. For these situations we have tactical flashlights.

What can you expect from tactical flashlights?

Tactical flashlight are used in the hardest of circumstances. Because of this they should:

  • be well made for maximum durability.
  • have a long lasting battery life.
  • have a high number of Lumens (how bride it shines)
  • be of a high grade built. The good ones are made of weapon grade aluminium and have a textured grip.
  • be usable as a defensive weapon. Of course they can be used for punching somebody but just shining the light in somebodies eyes will already disorient them. There are even stories around of people skaring away bears just by using the strong light of a tactical flashlight!
