JETBeam RRT01 RAPTOR 2020

JETBeam RRT01 RAPTOR 2020

A lot of modern flashlights try and pack as many features as possible into the common two-button interface. While it allows for incredible customization and adaptability, sometimes your flashlight needs may lie more in the efficiency of simplicity. And few interfaces do it as well as a rotary interface: there’s nothing to navigate or program, you just twist to the brightness you need and you’re ready to go. Unfortunately rotary lights are an uncommon breed, which is why new releases like JETBeam’s RRT01 RAPTOR are all the more welcome. It’s an update to last year’s JET-RRT01 and offers tweaks to its features and design to make it an even more appealing light in 2020. This is a modern rotary flashlight done right.

As expected from a rotary light, and similar to last year’s model, the RRT01’s interface is driven by a magnetic rotating ring and activated by a forward clicky tail switch. It starts from off, and rotating through detents activates “on” and “High,” with Strobe and SOS hidden through quick twists past the detents. But for its main operation, you get stepless dimming from 1-950 claimed lumens by way of its CR123A, RCR123A, and 18350 battery compatibility paired with the original Cree XP-L emitter or a new option for the enthusiast favorite Nichia 219C. Using an 18350 battery allows for its full output (CR123A goes up to 420 lumens), and using the CR123A gives you an extended runtime of 80 hours on its lowest 1-lumen setting.

The IPX8-rated anodized aluminum body also comes with a few changes from last year’s model. The attached clip is now shorter and doesn’t overlap with the magnetic ring to offer seamless operation, and the tailcap is now extended with a skeletonized stainless steel tail for rope or lanyard attachments. The stainless bezel also comes with fewer crenelations, and is flush with the head for a cleaner profile. Overall, small tweaks to allow ease of operation and EDC, even while gloved.

JETBeam continues to keep the rotary flashlight alive with a solid release in the RRT01 RAPTOR, tweaked for performance and upgraded for enthusiasts without reinventing the (magnetic) wheel. Pick it up at the link below.

WESN Ti Microblade

The titanium flipper remains relevant to this day as a premium option due to its great combination of ease of use, light weight, and remarkable durability. Combining titanium’s great strength to weight ratio with the convenience of flipper deployment results in a fast and functional EDC knife. The WESN Ti Microblade offers a new take on the design that focuses on pocketabilty and portability, without losing functionality. It gives you the utility and practicality of having a readily accessible knife at a fraction of the weight, and in a package that’s the size of a house key. It’s a great way to always have a working knife on you, no matter where you go.

The petite, yet potent Microblade is 2.25" when closed, and 3.75" overall with the blade deployed. The EDC-friendly 1.5" blade is made of heat-treated AUS-8 stainless steel, known for its toughness, rust resistance, and ease of maintaining a razor-sharp edge. The drop-point shape gives you some belly for slicing, as well as a sturdy tip for piercing and precision work. On a shorter blade like this, having that prominent belly helps maximize cutting edge to work with, making it capable for quick slicing jobs despite it being on the smaller side. Its ultra-compact design and shorter blade length allows for unobtrusive carry even in places with stricter knife laws.

Deploying the blade is a snap with the small yet pronounced flipper tab, and you can also slow-roll using the stepped thumbstud when you want to be more discreet. When opened, a sturdy frame lock integrated into the Grade 5 Titanium handles keeps the blade locked in and secure. You have a lot of options for carrying the Microblade: the handle features a pocket clip, allowing you to secure it in your fifth jeans pocket, as well as a keychain hole that allows you to attach a lanyard for easy retrieval from inside your pockets, or a split ring so that you can integrate it with the rest of your keys.

The latest version of the Microblade features G10 handle scales in an OD Green colorway, providing some visual contrast to the warm-hued Gunmetal color used on the titanium framelock. The durable glass-reinforced resin features high impact strength, chemical and temperature tolerance, and provides a bit of texture for an enhanced grip.

At 1.0 ounce and with a compact form factor, the WESN Ti Microblade carries well as a fifth pocket knife, a keychain knife, or as a lightweight backup blade. It’s barely there when you don’t need it, yet the design and materials deliver high performance for when you do. Additionally, WESN’s Lifetime Warranty ensures that it remains that way. Check out the version with G10 handles, as well as other handle scale options, via the link below. Also, take advantage of the product code EDCXSHEATH for a free leather sheath when you get your own compact Microblade.

Fenix E20 V2.0 EDC Flashlight

When it comes to EDCing a flashlight, having a balance between ease of use and a pocket-friendly design is key. And for some EDCers, simpler is better. Even with many modern day lights boasting programmable modes and uncommon battery cells, a no-frills, no-fuss light that works reliably can be just as effective, especially if you’re after a light you can depend on during an emergency. That’s what makes the updated Fenix E20 V2.0 EDC flashlight so special: it’s compact, thin, and lightweight, making it not a burden to bring around with you everyday in the pocket or bag of your choice. Its easy single tailswitch operation, and use of two normal AA alkaline batteries makes for a no-hassle, competent everyday carry light that you can count on.

Now in its second iteration, the new Fenix E20 V2.0 features a Luminus SST20 LED module that puts out a 350 lumen max light output that’s quite generous considering it’s designed to use two regular easily-found AA alkaline batteries. If you prefer to use rechargeable batteries, the light is also compatible with Ni-MH AA cells as well. The practical light output makes the Fenix E20 great for EDC utility and inspection use in the dark where other EDC lights might feel disorienting to use. The flashlight leverages an ultra-thin optical lens to spread emitted light into a useful manageable 85 degree angle beam out to a max throw of 413 feet.

Because the Fenix E20 uses a single reliable tail switch at the back of the light that’s rated for at least 100,000 actuations, operating the light is easy. The tailswitch turns the light on and off, and it also lets you cycle through four different brightness levels. This includes an eco mode that brings things down to a low 5 lumens for extended runtime when you need it.

At just 5" long and 0.68" in diameter at the head, the Fenix E20 feels similar to carrying a pen on your pocket, and it has a durable pocket clip that makes doing so pretty easy. And because the light is precision machined out of high quality 6061-T6 aerospace grade aluminum, it weighs in at just 1.48 ounces unloaded. With its IP68 rated water-resistance which allows the light to remain submerged for up to 30 minutes to a depth of 2 meters, it’s ready for the worst rain you can encounter on your travels both near and far.

It’s rare to see such a combo of easy carry options, simple operation, and reliable yet useful light output from an everyday carry flashlight, and it’s easy to see why the new Fenix E20 wowed fans at SHOT Show 2020. And now you can grab one of these great EDC LED flashlights for yourself today at the link below.
