Whether working in your backyard after sundown or going for a pre-sunrise hike in the wilderness, you should keep a flashlight on your side – both to illuminate your path and to ward off any potential threats. And we posit that there might be no better torch for the job than Olight’s X7R Marauder.
Sure, it’s a bit bulkier than your average EDC flashlight, but that comes with some major benefits. For instance, this beer-sized portable lamp boats a maximum output of 12,000 lumens – making whatever you point it at look like the middle of the day in a cloudless July. For reference, that output is 33.33% brighter than the original Marauder. On top of that, this version comes with 8 modes to switch between, a rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack which offers a runtime of up to 30 days, and is waterproof rated at an IPX7. The X7R Marauder is on pre-sale now for $280 with deliveries starting in late August.
