- G2X FR Pro
Having recently purchased EDC pocket knives with fluorescent handles of venom green and orange, I took a closer look at this orange handled light and realized the power of the lower setting. Dove right in and ordered one! What a beast! I love this one!
Probably the single most useful and versatile of all the Surefires, my wife and I own. The lanyard is no less imposing...long enough, very eye catching, and very secure. My EDC Surefires now include this one in my bag, next to my armored, waterproof iPhone 5, and other necessary gear. Being a disabled vet and retired professional soldier, I am very demanding when it comes to what I call my life support gear. This great light is now a close companion. Very well done, folks! This light should be a must have for any responsible adult.

- Another SureFire Home Run
I became a fan of SureFire LED lights a number of years ago. I have carried and used daily an E1L Outdoorsman in one form or another in my job as a fire officer and on many Boy Scout adventures. (I still have and use all three.) When I received the email special offer on the orange G2X Fire Rescue Pro, I contemplated ordering right away. It was a SureFire I didn't have, it was a dual output light, it was orange (I love orange stuff!) and it came with some cool accessories. After about a week and a half of contemplation, I finally decided I would have more regret NOT buying one. I placed the order as a Halloween treat to myself (and belated birthday gift!) The light arrived in short order and I immediately added it to the essential gear I always carry when at work. Fire fighters have a natural attraction to cool flashlights anyway so there is always room for one more, especially one as reliable and visible as the G2X Fire Rescue Pro. I know SureFire is always making improvements so I have two suggestions for future developments of fire rescue lights: 1. Add a strobe feature for distress marking and general signalling. 2. Design and build a 'right angle' light that can be secured to a bunker coat to facilitate hands free use. I have had few opportunities to use the G2X Fire Rescue Pro in tactical situations. When I have some experiences to share, I'll submit a more detailed performance review.

I BOUGHT THE G2X AS A GIFT FOR MY WIFE. JUST AS I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN IMPRESSED, SHE IS NOW AN AVID FAN OF SUREFIRE PRODUCTS

- Great Light
Surefire is a product to depend on in life or death situations, yours or someone elses. This light is my backup in my bunker pants pocket. I have used it on accident scenes. The different output modes is a great feature. Extending battery life with light to spare. Wonderful product, but I expected no less!

This is a great light, especially when paired up with the blackjack 05. I've carried this on traffic crashes in heavy rain, MFR's, and house fires (although I don't know how the batteries will handle extreme heat). The orange body makes it easier to see when dropped, and the low output is excellent for directing traffic for extended periods.

The G2X Fire Rescur Pro replaces my 6PX Pro which i have carried for several years. The brighter lumens afforded by the G2X, particularly on the higher setting is comforting.I also apprecaite that SureFire was able to keep the dimensions identical for ease in utilizing the same carrier.

- great for walking my dog at night
best light of the g2x series I've gotten. the low power setting is pretty bright and really bright on high. I like the orange color and the orange neck cord. The clip is much improved over previous cord clips.

- Top Quality - Special price
I purchased (2) of these flashlights along with the free safety cones during the October special promotion. I guess you could call it the Halloween special given the expiration date and color of the unit. The dual output is one criteria I look for in a Surefire flashlight. This unit provides a very functional low setting that suits most use. The high output, 500 lumens, is a massive surprise in power, focus beam and coverage. The lanyard I also find very useful and like to utilize this option on other flashlights when possible. The safety cone accessory is a very functional and visible under the lower output. Even more so at high output but the heat buildup is a concern of mine at this high output for long durations despite the small 'Ventilation' hole at the tip of the cone. This is plenty functional at the lower output without putting the unit under unnecessary heat buildup and potential damage.
This is a top quality flashlight with dual output, locking tail cap, lanyard and safety cone accessory that came at a special discounted price and free shipping. A super deal for an extremely high quality excellent craftsmanship flashlight. The only feature I wished this unit came with is the reflective stickers that came with my dual output Firefighter, 2 & 3-battery, yellow (with lanyard) flashlights. Sorry I couldn't recall the name of these Surefire flashlights.
Like so many electronic products, the features become better and better in short time and typically more economical. Surefire continues to push the bar higher and higher with improved output, features, and craftsmanship. I find Surefire to be the best of the best and always recommend their product to family and friends.

|Output / Runtime -- White Light|
|High||320||lumens / 2.5 hours*|
|Low||50||lumens / 45.0 hours*|
The G2X Fire Rescue Pro is a powerful dual-output flashlight designed specifically for firefighters, paramedics, EMTs, and other first responders, but it can also serve as an excellent outdoor/general use flashlight or emergency/disaster light.
The virtually indestructible LED and precision micro-textured reflector create a smooth, perfectly focused beam in two output levels. Press or click the ergonomically-positioned tailcap switch for a 50-lumen output that provides plenty of illumination for most closer-range lighting tasks, navigating in the dark, or greatly extending the runtime per set of batteries — a valuable option if you're in the field. Press or click again within two seconds for a brilliant 320-lumen beam with a brighter central area that can reach deep into the dark but which has enough surround beam to accommodate peripheral vision.
This compact weatherproof flashlight features a tough, smoothly sculpted Nitrolon® body that resists scratches, abrasion, and corrosion and provides a secure, comfortable grip in cold weather; the fluorescent orange color provides maximum visibility in low light conditions. The head is made from high-strength aerospace aluminum, black hard anodized for superior resistance to wear, and features a tough high-temperature polycarbonate window that resists both impact damage and extreme heat.
