BTW 2015-09-18 : 12 km in about 40 minutes. Because it’s night when I’m heading to work and also when I’m going back home (double shifts are funny like that), I’ve got not a lot of landscape pictures. So instead here my first line of defense against car drivers – visibility. For that, I’m using a combination of flashlights (about 40 lumens of combined red light in the back, about 250 combined lumens of white light in the front) and a Swiss Army gamache lumineuse, a hi-viz very practical thingie you velcro at the bottom of your pants to be seen. I tend to look like a very fast Christmas tree while I’m going down the hills.

The newest generation of the Peli 1920 is quite cool, and it’s a great flashlight (almost doubling the output while keeping the same battery lifetime), but the original one was a near perfect tactical flashlight : cheap, strong, rugged, simple, with the right output (around 60/70 lumens) to be used in the kind of situation that request a tactical flashlight.

The new one is neat to use on a daily basis, with the high beam to reach out far away in the dark, and the low beam (12 lumens, around 10 hours of light) great for lurking inside buildings.

I really hope that Pelican will provide us with something like a 1919 flashlight, with only one mode and an output similar to the first generation (but doubling the autonomy). That would be great.
