So, a pricey flashlight? The 3D is mega bright, hefty, and fabulous to use. It's worth s having at least one of these super-bright "tactical" types in your home. This one has more than 1,200 lumens, which is a fancy way of saying it is hellaciously bright. Which you'll want when navigating down a dark trail or signaling help. See our full review of 5.11 flashlights.

5.11 Station 3D Tactical Flashlight

  • THE ESSENTIALS

    Importance: Important.

     

    Bottom line: A super-bright flashlight. The one to use in a real emergency.

     

    Recommended for: Shelters, go-bag, vehicle. 

     

    You’ll also need: 3 D batteries.

     

    Be aware: This thing is super bright, and it's hefty. Downside: We HATE D batteries. 

  • FIELD NOTES

    At 12 inches long and 32 ounces, and cast out of aluminum, it is rather wieldy. Feels good in your hand, and you could whack someone with it if needed. But not the lightest thing to carry in your pack, either.

  • OFTEN BOUGHT WITH

    D batteries.
