P3X as EDC
I own a dozen SureFire flashlights and the P3X is the most powerful, high-quality, bombproof illumination tool I have. I carry it everyday with an aftermarket titanium clip fastened to my cargo pants pocket. It's small and light enough that I barely notice it, but it shines like a searchlight, at 1000 lumens, and the low level 15-lumen setting is just enough for normal tasks. Well worth the $.

This is a great light for someone working outside the entire night in all weather conditions. High and low light options are both easily accessed as needed and the size is perfect for someone who carries a lot of other tools and schematics.

Great light. I have been using a UB3T Invictus prior to this purchase. While a terrific light, the Invictus is very large. The P3X fits conveniently in a pocket and is much easier for every day carry. Plus it is, if anything, even brighter on its high setting. It's definitely an attention-getter when you need one, and it lights up any area like Yankee Stadium. Its construction is as rugged as you can get, like all SureFire products; it can even be used to prop open heavy doors in an emergency with no damage other than a scratch on the finish. Great product, highly recommended, give it 5 stars.

Strong housing and extremely bright light. The run time seems quite long for a lamp this powerful. The low beam is adequate for many uses and the high beam is truly blinding. This lamp is for people who want a serious lamp and can't afford to have their lamp fail

Solid build. 10- year-old son dropped it and it was completely fine. I was worried, as he is a bit clumsy at times. Durable and bright, actually more bright than I actually need, but I like to be sure. I looked far and wide, reviewed many posts, and I am more than happy with my purchase. From home protection to tactical situations, I give the Fury 5 stars. As long as the warranty holds up, I think I am a lifetime customer. SureFire has confirmed my support of American made products.

Well worth the wait!
When I ordered my P3X they were out of stock. I understand why after receiving this pocket "Q Beam." I can imagine it is hard to keep them in stock. I am Assistant Chief at a VFD in Alaska. Scene lighting is always an issue in the wintertime (20 hours of darkness). I can't wait till winter to really put this thing through it's paces, it is not getting dark this time of year. So far it is as bright or even brighter than some headlights and searchlights. This is my 4th Surefire and I am still using them all.

So much light in a small package. Very bright, solid construction. Everything you would expect from SureFire.

Great for street patrol
I've worked nightshift on patrol for almost ten years and like many have seen the progression of illumination tools. I've owned many Surefire products both for hand and duty weapon(s). This by far is the APEX of what is out there today. The P3X Fury constantly illuminates when I need it most often drowning out other officers low lumen lights. The difference is instantly amazing. This one tool will illuminate an entire sedan size car interior as soon as you push in the tail cap. A dramatic improvement to OFFICER SAFTEY! I have also used it to blind a German Shepard so to safely make it back to my squad. Thanks Surefire! Keep producing products that help us help other and save lives.

Again, a great light. I work in a prison and the low beam helps on not waking the I/M's when doing security checks but when a whole lotta light is needed it will light up the whole cell. Even got the light to strobe (with some practice} when needed.

Best of breed; incredible light
I've owned SureFire flashlights since they were dominating the space with 60 Lumen Incandescent flashlights that lasted for maybe 1 hour. But that was so so so much better than a MagLight...
Over the years I've upgraded from the Z2 combat light to the G2 LED to the LX2 Lumimax to the PX2 Fury. Each time I get a new model I am amazed at how much more bright and clear they become.
1000 Lumens takes it to a new level. This is the threshhold where the power of the light starts to compete with the ability to see what you are lighting up.
In other words, I can stand in the middle of my 5 acre clearing and see ALL parts of it at night, including deep into the woods. If a person was standing in the woods 150 meters away in the daylight, they would be hard to see. I don't think they would be that much harder to see with this light at night.
The 3 batteries is considerably longer, although not a problem to carry in my left jeans pocket with my keys. Just keep in mind that you cannot grab the light by the head and reach the back with your thumb. Just a difference in habit.
At first I didn't want the two stage tailcap switch, but in practical use I find it very useful. If I was a tactical operator, I would recommend you get the tactical model so you have 1000 lumens RIGHT NOW. Normal people can wait 0.25 seconds to double click it.
This is hands down, no questions asked, the best flashlight I am aware of in existence today.
Buy it. You will never go back.
