Drag your gear through hell and back on a daily basis? Inova’s X5 has you covered. With its 5 LEDs in individually-recessed compartments, there’s no glass to break, and thanks to its machined aluminum body it’s crushproof, shockproof and water resistant. If that wasn’t enough, advanced electronics provide a uniform beam until the last ounce of battery power – supplied by two 123A lithium – and a 3-mode twist knob provides no-nonsense control over the beam.
