One piece of equipment is that is almost undisputedly need for every explorer is a flashlight! I believe I have found one of the best flashlights, the PK Paladin. This flashlight was created by FourSevens. It’s about a little bigger than the size of my thumb. It easily fits into my pocket.
This light really backs a punch, too! This light shines at 450 lumens on high beam and 25 lumens on low. It’s got every function you could have thought of! It has high and low beams, strobe, S.O.S., a medium beam, and a high and low beacon. The Paladin has optional tactical spikes for the end of the flashlight and when they aren’t in use, they store conveniently on the body of the flashlight!
Pressure can be applied to the power button to turn on the light or you can twist the power button to lock the light on or off! The Paladinhas a very good battery life with one CR123A battery. This flashlight is pretty expensive coming in at $150, but if you are looking for a quality flashlight that is extremely versatile and convenient for an everyday carry, then this is your flashlight!
450 Lumens, so very bright for this size of flashlight.
A total of 7 different modes
Perfect size for an everyday carry
Pretty small for use for a long period of time
Expensive for someone who doesn’t use a flashlight often
