This version of Fenix's PD35, thePD35-TAC LED Flashlight, features two selectable operation modes for general purpose and tactical uses. In the Outdoor mode, the tailcap switch controls basic on/off with the five output intensities and strobe being selectable via the side body switch. When the light is set to Tactical mode, the switching and available outputs change for easier use. This easier switching and tactical-minded outputs makes operating the light and choosing outputs more intuitive which is critical in high-stress situations. In Tactical mode, switching and output selection is done using the tailcap pushbutton, with access to just the turbo, strobe, and low outputs for simplicity.

Utilizing a Cree XP-L (V5) LED, this versatile light produces an output range from a low task-orientated 8-lumens up to a powerful 1000 lumen turbo mode that is ideal for searching or lighting large areas and rooms. Its 1000 lumen strobe mode can be used to disorientate or signal in emergency situations. The light runs on a single user-supplied 18650 or two CR123 batteries, and features active and passive over-heat protection, digitally regulated output, and reverse-polarity protection.

Complementing the light's performance is a lightweight and durable aluminum allow body with a protective corrosion and scratch-resistant type III hard anodized finish. The light is impact-resistant tested to 3.3' drops, and IPX8-rated to be submersible to a depth of up to 6.6'. A textured body profile provides a sure grip in cold and wet conditions, and anti-roll areas are machined into the bezel and tailcap. The belt clip is removable for carrying the light in a holster or pocket without getting caught or snagged.

You get what you pay for. Top notch and rugged.

Amazing light, but not waterproof?

An amazing flashlight with beautifully smooth beam spread and incredible (and adjustable) brightness in such a compact size. There is no hole or ring in the light beam - you could actually use this for lightpainting, as a bike handlebar headlight (with the right clamp), or sending warning signals via the strobe mode. The rechargable battery has a long life between charges. The only problem is that it isn't weather sealed and waterproof. Resistant, perhaps, but AFAIK it cannot be submerged and might even be subject to damage in a heavy rain if water gets in the side switch.

Surprised by how bright the light is on this flashlight, and includes strobe for emergency. Compact, easy to carry in back pack or hang on belt/pocket. Well worth it for a photographer or general use.

This is my second pd35, I bought it during a bh sale, its a good size, can fit win the pocket and produces a good light. It comes with a sheath which can fit on my belt, however, no room to place a wire if you buy a rechargeable battery. I have used it for photography and looking around in the dark. I could ue a little more power , but then there is the price issue
