Over the Utah General Season Rifle Mule Deer Hunt I had the opportunity to try out the Cyclops 700 Lumen LED Flashlight from GSM Outdoors. It’s a small flashlight that fits great into my pack. It also didn’t add any weight and the bright yellow end made it easy to find when I needed it.
My expectations were not very high. I mean, it is just a flashlight, right? WRONG! The Cyclops is a 700 lumen flashlight which means it is BRIGHT. Bright enough that we didn’t need a lantern to gather firewood when we ran out. Bright enough I left my headlamp back at camp when we went out on our evening hunt. My expectations were blown out of the water!
I loved how it had a low and a high setting. The low setting worked great when we needed to relight our heater in our trailer. Not too blinding but just right to work inside with other lights. I also found that when I held down the button, I could use it to signal an SOS if ever needed. Not to mention the window breaking tool on the end, making the Cyclops 700 Lumen flashlight a great multi tool.
All in all, the way the Cyclops 700 Lumen LED Flashlight from GSM Outdoors performed was much better than expected. I was pleasantly surprised at the brightness and I loved how light it was and that it did not take up much room in my pack (10.2 x 5.8 x 1 inches and only 6.4 ounces).
I highly recommend to anyone who hunts or just loves to be outdoors. Definitely has my seal of approval and I will be purchasing another for my husband’s pack. Check the current price!
