Our friends at 365+ Tactical sent over another item to look at.

With winter approaching and days getting shorter and shorter, many of our outdoor sporting activities are often cut short because of lack of daylight. Luckily, Olight has the illumination game all figured out. Thanks to them, we are able to introduce a new headlamp, designed for the sporty types among us. It’s the super lightweight and compact, Olight HS2.

This is a special breed of headlamp, not previously available. It’s designed for fast-paced activities like running, mountain biking, snowboarding and so on.

CopShop UK: LED Lenser torches offer

CopShopUK have the LED Lenser torches on offer. I’ve used a wide range of torches (I have a drawer full in the office to compare them all to) and still have a V2 in my backpack and use a P7 for walking the dog:

We have the new LED Lenser P7.2 and T7.2 available for just £42.99 (RRP £59.99)

These upgraded designs improve on the brightness of the originals by 60%, now kicking out 320 lumens!
They feature 3 power modes, durable pouch, wrist-strap & batteries.

For Candlepower fans there’s a few threads on there covering the good and the bad about all lights (including the P/T7.2).

Thyrm: Switchback. Make your torch finger spinning tactical

This one popped out at me in the Shot Show round ups. It’s a product from a company called Thyrm called the Switchback.

The concept is pretty simple, it allows you to spin your torch on your finger and keep it separate from a firearm giving your torch more flexibility.

Now rather than try and explain it in great detail their latest YouTube video (added today) explains it:

SwitchBack Backup : The SwitchBack turns your SureFire Backup Flashlight into a flexible tactical tool. $16.99

imageimageimage

Product Description The SwitchBack turns your SureFire Backup Flashlight into a flexible tactical tool.

After taking a look at all the options available for flashlights and weapon-lights we realized that there was a big disconnect: Weapon-lights are great for shooting, but they create a lot of liability when searching. Flashlights are better for searching, but they require awkward grips to align the flashlight and firearm. SwitchBack allows the user to rapidly deploy the flashlight for searching or single-hand shooting techniques, but then reorient the flashlight for use with a two-handed grip just like a weapon-light. We also made sure users could perform reloads and clear malfunctions without having to stow or hang the light. Overall, the SwitchBack allows military, law enforcement and responsible citizens to deploy their flashlights faster, search more safely, and shoot better, without having to own a drawer full of illumination tools.

The SwitchBack fits between the flashlight’s body and the tail cap, making it secure regardless of impact, moisture or heat/cold changes.

The SwitchBack is black and includes an optional o-ring, which may reduce rotation on some models of flashlights.  Flashlight not included.

Designed in collaboration with Chris Costa, Costa Ludus.

SwitchBack Backup is compatible with:
SureFire EB1 and EB2 Backup Lights with non-shroud tailcaps, but
NOT the E1B (100 lumen version)

Designed and manufactured in the USA. (Thyrm)

Enforce-logic July newsletter

There’s new gear in at EnforceLogic including a rather expensive pen (watch that one getting swiped within seconds). Of more interest, at least to me, is the Pelican 7060. I’ve had one for about a year now and can’t fault it. I’ve not broken it either so that must be good news:

surefire pen02 Surefire Pen LAS-EWP-01-BK The SureFire Pen™ is a new addition to the ever-growing SureFire family—and it fits in perfectly. It boasts a rugged aerospace-grade aluminium body that’s Mil-Spec Type III hard anodized like many of its brothers; and it’s perfectly balanced for writing. This bold, retractable SureFire Pen is appointed with virtually indestructible, tumbled-polished stainless steel on the tip, pocket clip, and the tailcap which features a smooth, rounded window breaker that’s always ready for emergency use and won’t snag clothing. And it writes like a dream. The SureFire Pen comes standard with a high-performance Schmidt® Technology easyFLOW ink cartridge, which is all about performance, but the pen is fully adjustable too; you can use nearly any ink cartridge (between 3.875 and 4.25" long) with a simple adjustment. Smooth writing performance, elegant yet bold design, and it breaks glass in an emergency. What more could you want from this latest member of the SureFire family?

FEATURES:

  • Rugged aerospace-grade aluminium body
  • Aluminium body hard anodized to military specifications
  • Virtually indestructible pocket clip with SureFire logo
  • Smooth, tough window breaker tailcap for emergency use
  • Schmidt ink cartridge flows effortlessly
  • Pen adjusts to accept most ink cartridges
  • Ink tip retracts into body; no cap to lose
  • Made in the U.S.A. with imported ink cartridge £64.99
