This is our top pick for several reasons, but mostly because it packs the most potent features possible into the smallest package possible.
At just 3.5 inches, the 500 is small enough to realistically carry on your belt (it comes equipped with a belt clip), yet it produces a highly disorienting, focused beam of bright 250-lumens light.
It’s made of super strong aircraft aluminum, has a raised crown for striking, and it runs on just 1 AA battery. When was the last time you owned a flashlight that only needed 1 battery?
As an EDC tool, “carry-ability” is super critical. If you can’t get comfortable carrying a flashlight, it really doesn’t matter how cool it is. You won’t have it when you need it most.
To top it off, we’ve got some great news! My Crisis Gear is currently selling the TTB500 for only $6.95 (that includes S&H).
