Made for the EDC Community, the Massdrop Brass AAA Pocket Flashlight is about the size of a tube of chapstick—but it pumps out 110 lumens and casts a beam as far as 154 feet (with the CREE XP-G2 R5 LED). Despite measuring less than 3 inches long, it weighs 1.5 ounces for a substantial feel in the hand. And thanks to its solid brass construction it will develop a natural patina over time, unique to each user. Perhaps best of all, it runs on a single AAA battery for a whopping 36 hours on low mode. At checkout, choose between the CREE XP-G2 R5 LED, which casts a brighter white beam, and the Nichia 219B LED, which offers a warmer beam with superior color representation.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice between the CREE XP-G2 R5 LED and the Nichia 219B LED. To learn more, check out this discussion post with Will from Massdrop.

The flashlight’s solid brass body features knurling for grip in slippery conditions. And if you do happen to drop it in a river or pool, not to worry: It’s IPX-8 waterproof and 1.5-meter impact resistant. Attach it to your belt, hat, or pocket with the reversible clip, or remove the clip and slide the light into a breast pocket—the choice is yours. The clip is gold-plated to match the lustrous brass body, and the button piece is made from titanium. Plus, if you feel like reading or relaxing at camp, you can stand the light upright on its end.

"...I was sent an early sample and was already impressed by the overall design. Brass flashlight AND a tailswitch? As a collector of Surefire and various solid metal lights, this is my ideal combination." - Cyphre (Massdrop community member)
