Streamlight 88850 PolyTac LED Flashlight Product Review

The Streamlight 88850 PolyTac LED Flashlight is equipped with white LED technology, and can emit light as bright as 600 lumens, which is ideal for an EDC.

However, it comes with three different light settings, so you can adjust the light depending on your situation. The strobe setting can be used for rescue purposes, or to disorient an enemy, which is exactly what you need in a survival scenario.

It claims to have a 50,000 hour lifetime, so this flashlight should see you through many expeditions and potential survival situations (although we hope you don’t have to face any at all)!

It has a slip-resistant grip and is comfortable to hold, so you don’t have to worry about it falling out of your hand during a crucial moment.

The flashlight comes with a multi-position, detachable pocket clip, so you can keep it on your person at all times. It also includes two 3V CR123A lithium batteries, so it can store energy for longer and therefore stay bright during its lifespan.

Not only is it a powerful flashlight, but it is also compact and lightweight. It weighs 4.2oz with the battery included, and would fit well in a pocket to make a great everyday carry.
