Streamlight PT 2L – A great and affordable EDC light!

streamlight pt2lMany armed citizens choose to carry not only a firearm as a part of their everyday carry routine, but also knives and/or lights as well. After doing some low light shooting events I decided to purchase a hand-held tactical light for occasional carry in my pocket or in my truck. My criteria were based around size and quality.

Streamlight is a quality brand with a sound reputation so that was easy. They offer a wide variety of lights in a wide variety of size and lumens (light output). Since the chances of me using my firearm in self-defense and actually having time to draw a flashlight to use as a companion are about as slim as it gets, I wanted something practical that could be used for daily chores, as well as a non-lethal distracting alternative.

The Streamlight PT 2L was the perfect choice. Its slim profile and powerful-enough-for-me light output makes it very suitable for pocket carry. The only down side is the pocket clip is not fixed to the flashlight, so if you are wearing thick pants and the clasp is too tight it can pop off. Other than that, this little light blaster has a high, strobe, and low light selection (operated in that order). The rear button can be partially depressed requiring you to hold the button down for power, or can be clicked on like a normal flashlight. At night, this thing puts out some power and is more than ample for practical use, and I feel very comfortable with the beveled edges and strobe features to use as a striking weapon or distraction tool. I find the affordable Streamlight PT 2L Protac Tactical Flashlight to be just about perfect for its intended purpose.
