The 5.11 ATAC range of torches covers different sizes of torch with one of the latest additions to the range being the ATAC PL. This useful little penlight only measures about 8.5cm long by 1.5cm wide, but still packs a punch. Made from aerospace grade aluminium with a knurled end cap and a useful pocket clip, the ATAC PL uses one AAA battery to give 24 lumens of light – useful to around 24 metres – for around 3 hours continuous life, from a single Nichia LED.
The ATAC PL has gold plated contacts and regulated circuits for maximum performance and can withstand drops from up to 3m, while also being substantially weatherproof with an “O” ring seal to the battery compartment.
The torch uses an end-cap button to switch on and off. A heavy press on the button will switch it on while a light press will flick it on in a “momentary on” feature. Release the pressure and the light goes out.
This simple little torch is great for close work, or as a “back-up” light and is plenty tough enough for outdoor use. Costing around £25, the 5.11 ATAC PL torch is small enough to carry anywhere and fits unobtrusively in most pockets.
