I travel a great deal; often to dark, wet and desolate places. I carry a small flashlight. It's a nice one; a brand we all know. I've been through three of them in a few years and they all eventually failed, always at the worst times.
My engineering student son bought a Surefire and a Z33 lanyard. It is great. So I bought one too. Bye bye other guys. I've found a flashlight that I can pull out, hang around my neck, and it will work every time for a long long time.

- Like a Long Necklace with a Bright Pendant
How long is the cord on the Z33 lanyard?
If I took the cord locks off the cord, probably about 35" laid open from end to end.
Can I comfortably and easily wear my happy, favorite, yellow G2X Pro around my neck?
Yes, like a long, bright necklace.
Can I also use it around my wrist?
Yes, the cord locks are easily adjusted.
In short, I like it. It's well made and the lanyard makes it easier to use the flashlight.
If you want details (with approximate measurements), you can continue reading below:
Maybe it's because I got the Z33 lanyard and my G2X Pro (15/320 lumens) at a nearby store, but mine is black (not gray). Anyway, black looks better with my yellow flashlight so it's a plus.
Laid open from end to end, the cord is about 35" long.
Folded in half, the cord is 17.5" but I need to leave space for the 2 cord locks so they're not pushed all the way to the very ends.
So if I wear it like a long necklace, it'll hang about 15" down from my neck (like a deep v-neck sweater).
Right now, with the 2 cord locks spaced 14.5" apart, it's easy to put on and take off.
Of course you can adjust the cord locks however you wish. This is just an example of how I've set it up at this moment.
I can also slide the adjustable cord lock about halfway in so that it fits my wrist.
Everything feels sturdy and well-made.
The 1" ring was easy to add between the body of the flashlight and the tail cap.
The lanyard cord is thick, soft, and comfy.
The 2 cord locks slide smoothly and easily along the length of the lanyard and lock well/feel secure.
Note: There's a small keyring which attaches the lanyard to the cord fastener (which then attaches to the 1" ring I added to the flashlight).
Sliding the thick cord fastener onto the thin, tiny keyring was not easy for me and the person who was helping me at the store. Putting keys (or anything else) on a keyring is hard enough, but a tiny keyring--arrrg. Luckily, we finally figured out a way to do it: teamwork.
If you use a key, staple remover, tweezers, flat screwdriver, pliers, etc to wedge and hold open the keyring, have a second person slide the fastener onto the keyring. It's much easier this way. So glad we did it. Hope this review helps.

Purchased this lanyard for my 6PX Pro. It's a good product and will fit over your wrist to prevent loss.

- Short Lanyard
I have lanyards that came with my other Surefire Flashlights and expected the same from this accessory purchase. My other lanyards are nice and long and can easily adjust to fit over your head. This lanyard is much shorter and with careful adjustment will fit over your head but maxes out. It's like pulling on a shirt with a narrow fit that catches your nose and ears while going on or off your head. This lanyard is more geared for arm or risk use than around you neck. I like my other lanyards because it is nice to have your flashlight easily accessible and usable when hanging around your next. Unfortunately, this one is too short. The length of my other lanyards are 28 ½"; this one is 17 ½" in the looped configuration.

- Z33 lanyard works well.
I bought it for my P2X Fury light. It seems to be a quality product and I have no reservations regarding its purchase.
I would recommend this lanyard and would purchase another if needed.

- Lanyard for Surefire flashlight
I love this little lanyard. I keep a surefire flashlight in every room of my house. The are without rival in flashlights. The lanyard is easy to attach but would be hard to accidentally get off.

This lanyard is an ssential accoutrement for a small Surefire Light, to ensure that the light is always locatable, and easily assessable for routine use.

- Just what I needed...
Quality components throughout. I do think the flashlights should come w/ these, especially considering the cost of the flashlight.

- Z33 lanyard for G2ZX
A Surefire G2ZX is my EDC light, and the z33 is the lanyard I use for that light. The lanyard has been what I expected; and has performed well. The lanyard has two excellent friction nuts that allow the user to adjust length appropriately. Durable nylon. Good product.
