    1st review

    The Surefire G2 Nitrilon is a great backup light. It is very bright with a clear intense beam. It is also great to use during building clearing as the grip design stays in your hand very firmly and the momentary tailcap is perfect for this application. Bottom Line GREAT LIGHT!

    This light is a piece of genius. It is easy to hold onto, light weight and tough, more bang for less bucks and worthe every penny. Check out the website for all the specs, it's worth the time.

    I agree with all that it's a great little light...I also have two. However, neither give any kind of warning that the battery is going dead. One second it's shining brightly...The next second it's completely dead! This could cause a serious problem if it's the only light you have during a threatening/unknown threat situation.

    This is a fantastic compact tactical light. I usually carry it in the pocket of my vest. Very durable, grip design is comfortable. It is very easy to operate and the light beam is strong enought to temporarily disorient an opponent.

    I was very sceptical about a light that used "high dollar" batteries at such a fast rate, but after my wife bought it for me I would not trade it for anything else. It is very bright, light weight, and can be kept anyplace. I cant wait to try the "G3", I've heard some good things about it.

    I have two of these and a Z6. There great. I have upgraded the bulb to the 120 lumens and there great When your out in the woods this is the light you want. I don't think Surefire makes a bad light. The G2 weren't bad but the older Z6 was costly and there the same thing just different body material.

    You just can't go wrong with a Surefire in your pocket. Wide enough beam to quickly clear a room, powerful enough to illuminate a reflective sign 600 meters away, and more than bright enough to completely disorient and night-blind a suspect. Painfully bright to night-acclimated eyes. At 20 bucks (local price) I'd rate this one a MUST HAVE, in fact, planning to buy a couple more of them.

    The G2 is one of the best small lights for the money. It works well for as small as the light is, and its a durable light that takes a lot of abuse. It fits well on the duty belt and is very light weight. You dont even know its there.

    I got one for me and one for my little brother at a gunshow for $30 each. It's bright, compact, and seems durable. It has since replaced my Dorcy (see my other rating) I'd take it anywhere I need light, but my biggest beef with it is the batteries it uses, they're bloody expensive! Another thing is the screw on sustained lighting, I expected it to have a conventional clicky button in back, but it seems like it's more simple and therefore less prone to failure.

    This is a great light, I actually broke one by getting water inside of it and the batteries burst. I called up surefire and they sent someout out to pick it up. I got a brand new one. I recently switched to the LED version which is also great and lasts alot longer. Surefire has never let me down. Hands down best light I have ever owned.

    I didn't see anyone post this but you can also purchase a double bright bulb for this. It will reduce the life of the batteries by half but you also get a light that approaches the output of an SL20. fyi

    I just bought one, and for such a tiny light (fits snugly in the palm of my hand) it is one bright little sucker. I just did a foot patrol with it last night and it was so bright that it clearly illuminated an alleyway between apartment buildings from more than 7 feet away. WOW!!!! That's all I can say, and they also make a neat little holster that holds it firmly on your duty belt (various widths up to 6.5 inches, I think) in either the upright or head-down position. I prefer upright because it just sits lower and keeps me from bumping into it constantly, but it snaps right into the holster and you can even turn it on in the holster to illuminate paperwork. It's a versatile little sucker, and the Surefire company also sells the batteries for keeping it running. The batteries are like $19.95 for 12, just FYI.

    This is my backup backup light-- i keep it in my bag. Wear a Stinger on my belt as backup. Surefire builds a great product, and at a typical price of $34-35, u can't beat it. I also keep one on the headboard as a house light. I was going to mount one on my shotgun with the accessory curly cord tail switch, but the plastic light body is too thick to fit the mount-- get an aluminum 6P.

    Great flashlight. Extremely bright and lasts for a while on (2) 123 batteries. The only problem is that there is no dying time. You will think you have a while left on the batteries when all of sudden your flash light just stops working. Which does suck when you are attempting to do SFST. However it is a great light to have on my belt for a backup when I need to get out of the car fast and forget my Mag in the car.

    Hi Operators and Officers,
    I purchase this light by Surefire as a personal Defense component, to my amazement it was a asset to my Off Duty Protection. It is very Bright an give you that surprisingly blinding shock to give you the advantage momentary; it is very lightweight, so I don't even know I have it on. Combined with the Speed holster and Tactical rings it is unlimited to the Holding styles commonly used in the Forces. I will not buy another light that is substandard again! Remember you have only 1*or 2*!

    Bright light, compact, and tough.... the downside, the light uses (2) 3 volt batteries, which last exaxtley 1 hour burn time. When they go dead, you don't get a dim light, you get light one time, and none the next. Not a bad back-up light, but I wouldn't recommend using it everyday....it would get expensive buying batteries that you can't re-charge

I currently have one attached to my AR-15 with an angle bracket. Using a pistol grip on the fore end, my thumb goes right to the button on the rear. Durable as hell. I've dropped my sevel times from way up and even ran over it once. Great light for the money.

    Awesome compact light. Mine has been dropped countless times, accidentally thrown a few times, and been through the washing machine once and still works just as good as the day i bought it. It burns through batteries like crazy so I would recommend getting the LED version or getting the LED replacement lamp. I got an LED replacement lamp a about 6 months ago and haven't put batteries in since. I work graveyard and use my light nightly...granted it's usually just seconds at a time, but with the normal lamp I was changing batteries about every month and a half or so.

    Bought the light while in Iraq. Served me very well. Changed over to the LED lamp. Batteries last a lot longer. Only down side is the light does not have the range of the regular lamp. Still very bright in close quarters. Light enough to hold in mouth when both hands are needed.

    For the money, this light and the LED version are hard to beat!! The incandescent G2 throws a lot of light but the batteries do go fairly quick and without warning....the G2 LED throws more light but doesn't reach as far. The blinding factor is better though! And the electronics let you know that your batteries are winding down so you can move them to your backup backup backup light!!

    I use this flash light. It puts off amazing light and it is certainly bright! The only reason I did not give it five stars is the batteries die suddenly. The other thing that could be improved is the light will sometimes turn on in the holster due to the spring when it is compressed. This also shortens the battery life.

    This is one of the best flashlights on the market. It is incredibly bright (60lumens with an optional 120 lumen bulb), compact and easy to carry, reliable and extremely rugged. My friend accidentally ran his over with an F150 pickup on a gravel road and it barely scuffed the exterior. Plus you can't beat the price. At around $35 this flashlight will give you the most bang for your buck. You even get a little over two hours of continuous run time from two CR123 lithium batteries!

    The perfect compact flashlight! This bad boy is BRIGHT! Perfect for checking out those bumps in the night. By flashing the "bad guy" right in the face you will gain valuable seconds because this thing WILL leave him disoriented. It does go through batteries quickly but a whole box of them is only about $20 direct off their website. I have one by my nightstand and one mounted on my Mossberg 500.

    I bought my G2 in 2003 for duty use. I still use it on a daily/nightly basis in my current job. To date, my only complaints are 'battery life' and the lack of a 'lock out' switch to prevent accidental activation.

    An excellent product. There are two types now available - G2 Original (incan) and the G2L (LED). The LED version is much brighter and lasts longer. You can also get bulbs that are MUCH brighter. The G2L comes standard with an 80 lumen bulb that will run for 12 hours. You can purchase a "drop-in" bulb such as the M60 (www.malkoffdevices.com) which will give you 235+ lumens for 1.5 to 2 hours. It's BRIGHT!

    This is a tough little light that will take a beating and keep on working. Some people complain that it's too bright. But it's a tactical light so it's supposed to be ridiculously bright. If you work with a bunch of jokers constantly flagging each other with these suckers that can be a problem. My only issue is the short battery life. So I tend to use this sparingly, and only in tactical situations. And I'll use something else for searching behind my couch or under my bed.

    I have used this flashlight (both standaed and LED versions) for years while on active duty and it has served very well. The Nitrolon case is virtually indestructible and weather proof! It comes in various colors to fit the duty stuation. Has a decent output for a small flashlight and doesn't kill the batteries when used for long periods of time.

    The flashlight does put out a brilliant beam! Very compact but took a little time to get use to the switch because if you twist it it will turn on the light so you have to be careful if you get a holster that you have to pull it out of because it would sometimes turn it on.
