Streamlight PT Series

Flashlights are not something we normally a topic of discussion. However, when you need one a good flashlight is as important as anything we own. For several years, as a Deputy Sheriff, I used a Streamlight “Stinger” on duty. Recently, I noticed the line of LED lights offered by Streamlight. The difference is amazing. My old “Stinger” is still great, however when you see the LED lights in a side by side comparison, you won’t believe your eyes.

The new technology will make you toss your old lights in the can. When it comes to size, they are smaller than ever. For your security, most of these lights offer a “strobe” feature that will blind anyone that you shine it at. You simply cannot look at that bright of a light and see the person holding it. The strobe feature alone could save your life by giving you precious seconds to get away from an attack.

I settled on the model “PT2L”  for my car. It is small enough for the glove compartment, or to slip into my pocket when we are out after dark. The rear push button has 3 functions that are all easily utilized.

I highly recommed that you visit your local “Streamlight” dealer and see these lights for yourself. You will be glad you did.

Camping, hiking, walking, touring…whatever makes you happy, you need a flashlight you can depend on.  We recommend the PT Series by Streamlight.  Once you’ve found Streamlight, you can’t go back!  These flashlights are ultra compact, perfect for both travel and leisure.  They are also a “must” for at-home use!

The PT lights are the brightest flashlights we have found, with an output of up to 180 lumens.  They also have an excellent safety feature: a strobe setting, which is ideal to use as a signaling device.  We use our Streamlights regularly. We recommend them as a Best Rated “Must Have”.

We have found it useful to invest in a variety of sizes, one for your luggage, one for your car, one for your purse, and one for your home.  Here are the lights we recommend and why we find them useful:
