Make & Model

MSRP ($):
Fenix has taken the all-time bestselling PD35 and ramped it up to the tactical line...pure genius.

The PD35 TAC (Tactical Edition) remains a pocket size but has a higher performance and focuses on tactical employment. Measured at less than 5.51 inches, it features up to a 1000-lumen output and has a beam distance of up to 656 feet. In the Outdoor Mode, the PD35 TAC delivers 6 output modes. However, the Tactical Mode strengthens the PD35 TAC with simplified and fast operation. From outdoor use to law enforcement, you can count on the PD35 TAC delivering reliable and powerful lighting.

Pros & Cons

Fenix PD35 TAC

The Fenix PD35 TAC is a great light putting out up to 1000 lumens. Be aware if you use it in that mode at all times, your battery life will be terrible. The spotlight in your hand is there if you need it. Even not on the highest output, the PD35 will light up whatever you need to light up. The waterproof rating on the Fenix is true as I have dropped mine one too many times in the water, and it still works like a champ.

If you need a reliable, dependable light give Fenix a look!
