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 G2 Nitrolon, Incandescent Light

The Surefire G2 Nitrolon flashlight is one of a few Surefire incandescent lights that get used in my collection. It doesn't get used as much as it has in the past due to LED's these days, but it is by far the most used incandescent light that I have. It's a no-nonsense type of light and it's as basic as it gets. Very simple to use. Another reason that it gets serious use is the material it's made of. A tough plastic body that's works real well in the cold and wet conditions while maintaining a firm grip on it. So, here are some detailed photos of my Surefire G2...

Here's some added info on the Surefire G2 Nitrolon from Surefire's site... "The G2® is a high-output flashlight featuring a tough, corrosion-proof Nitrolon® body and bezel. It uses a precision micro-textured reflector and a SureFire incandescent lamp to produce a smooth, brilliant beam with enough power to temporarily blind and disorient an aggressor by impairing his night-adapted vision. Output is either 65 or 120 lumens, depending on which easy-to-install lamp you use—high-output or ultra high-output. The tactically-correct pushbutton tailcap switch provides secure, ergonomic activation control: press for momentary-on, twist for constant-on.". More photos here...

Keep in mind, the G2 that you see here is well used. The body of the flashlight looks as good as when I bought many years ago. So, it takes a beating yet it doesn't look it did. The light went through dozens of batteries in its lifetime and on the same bulb that came with it. Unfortunately, with LED's taking over these days with longer runtimes on a set of batteries and better light output, my Surefire G2 has been put to emergency duties. It doesn't see much action now. But I know when I do need it; it'll be ready with its usual reliability that Surefire is known for. More photos here...

People don't actually realize how bright these small lights are until they get their hands on them. Many are turned off due to the cost of the light and the cost to feed it. I don't blame them. The batteries can be costly. But once you start to use it, it's hard to go back to your regular old flashlight with poor light output. It really is that big of a difference. For the size of the light, weight, and light output, the cost of the flashlight is fair.
