One of My Favorite Quotes...

“The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.”

Surefire L5 Digital Lumamax Flashlight

Out of all the flashlights that I have, the Surefire L5 Digital Lumamax gets used the most and with good reason. With the LED being its light source, it provides a great amount of light for not only for throw but for decent flood also. Let's not forget the typical Surefire construction that's built for heavy duty use with it's aluminum body with Mil-Spec Type III hard anodized in olive drab. Here are some photos of my well used Surefire L5 flashlight...

One of the many reasons why this light gets used the most has to be the size. At a bit over 6 inches long, it's not too big nor too small to be held for general purpose use. The Surefire L5 feels real balanced in the hands with a decent amount of weight while being gripped. Not much knurling, but the rubber portion of the light helps with the grip. Plus, just look at it, it's also a great looking light. More photos here...

Here are some images of the flashlight somewhat deconstructed. The first image showing the long pocket clip that it sports for those that want to carry and clip it in their pockets. I never had use for it, but it's nice to know that it's there. Then you see the light broken down into three main pieces and the cr123 batteries removed to give you an idea of the size of the light. The last pic shown is a detailed shot of the innards of the clickable tail cap. More photos here...

Here's some product description of the Surefire L5 Lumamax taken off Surefire's site... "The L5 LumaMax® is a high-output extended-reach flashlight featuring a Combat-Grip™ body. It uses a virtually indestructible power-regulated LED and a precision micro-textured, extra-large reflector to produce a smooth 100-lumen beam—five times the light of a big two-D-cell flashlight, and more than enough to temporarily blind and disorient an aggressor by impairing his night-adapted vision. Compared to SureFire flashlights with similar output, the L5's tighter focus extends the illumination range for viewing distant objects and areas. The pushbutton tailcap click switch provides secure, ergonomic activation control: press for momentary-on, press further to click constant-on. Patented CombatGrip™ body improves performance with various flashlight/handgun techniques, such as the Rogers/SureFire technique, and provides a secure hold in wet or cold conditions or while wearing gloves."

The Surefire L5 is my first premium high powered LED light. So it makes sense that it gets used the most. The next photos show the size of the light in my hands. I wear size XL to XXL gloves if that makes any difference. There are other lights out there that are brighter and have longer runtimes on a set of batteries these days, but why fix something that isn't broke. Besides, this light is going to last forever, especially with Surefire's lifetime warranty. So, it isn't going anywhere anytime soon. More photos here...

Last, but not least is a photo of the Surefire L5 and the very popular Surefire E2E in my hands. You can see the size difference between the two and yet they both use two lithium cr123 batteries. The L5 is as big as I would want in a two cell cr123 light and the E2E is as small as I would like too. Basically the L5 for the home and the E2E to EDC. It just makes sense that way. So, it's one of my favorite lights in the collection. More photos here...
