Why We Like It

A flashlight or headlamp is not usually an essential item for traveling to more developed locations. However, the size and weight of the Beta QRv2 flashlight, combined with its high-functionality and brightness, makes this not just a necessary travel item but perhaps also an everyday carry item while at home. Three brightness settings (low/medium/high) to help you conserve power when needed, this flashlight is an incredibly well-made devices that will last for years to come. Another one of those you-never-thought-you-would-need-it-until-you-actually-do item.
