Old Model

The old model E1L Outdoorsman with 3/45 lumen I found perfect for bench work. The size and weight are easy to handle. The newer model with five/90 lumen is too bright. Glad I bought the older model when it was new.

Great light!

Fantastic light!! I purchased an E1L as a replacement EDC flashlight (was carrying a modded E1E). As is, it is a great light!! Compact enough for EDC, bright enough for 98% of situations. Better carry clip then the E1E (which needs to be brought back).

I modded my E1L with a tailcap and KL4 head as well as a Surefire head cover (scope cap) finished with a short lanyard.

Durable, Small and Practical

I bought my E1L in 2008. I use it nearly every day - on the job and off. Its practical, small and durable. I find the dual output to be very useful. I have employed mine while clearing a building with a handgun as well as for more mundane tasks such as roadside repairs of my motorcycle or lighting up wildlife while backpacking. I carry it sailing as well as its bright enough to get a most powerboaters attention when they are on a collision course. The price however has doubled since I bought mine. I cant imagine why. I would buy another one but at the current price...its not worth it.

IMPROVED — Now with 90 lumens max output
The E1L Outdoorsman — now with 90 lumens of maximum output — is an ultra-compact, dual-output, extended-runtime flashlight featuring a virtually indestructible power-regulated LED emitter and a precision Total Internal Reflection (TIR) lens.

The E1L has a click-type pushbutton tailcap switch — press for momentary on, press until it clicks for constant-on. The switch is also used to select the light output level: press or click for a 5-lumen ultra long-runtime low beam that's perfect for reading a map, performing tasks inside a tent, or navigating around a campsite without degrading your dark-adapted vision. Release and press again within two seconds, or click again within two seconds, for a powerful 90-lumen high beam to reach deep into the dark.

The E1L's small size and high-strength steel clip allow it to be securely stowed in a pocket or pack and provide quick and easy hands-free illumination by clipping the light to a hat brim or bill. Machined from aerospace aluminum and finished with Mil-Spec hard anodizing for resistance to abrasion and corrosion, the E1L is O-ring and gasket sealed, making it waterproof to a depth of one meter.

For a slightly longer version of this flashlight with higher maximum output and longer runtimes, see our two-battery E2L Outdoorsman.
