Gerber Freescape Flashlight
You know how nice it is to have a headlamp with a red light option around the campsite? I’ve often wondered why this feature doesn’t come standard in flashlights and lanterns. Well, here’s one that has it–the Gerber Freescape Flashlight.
It’s got an LED output of up to 200 lumens that lasts four hours. That is has three levels of lighting options is awesome. It’s small–think Mini Mag small. As with other gear in the Gerber Freescape collection, the flashlight has a great look featuring grippy textured black with neon green accents that make it easy to spot among your stuff. I like the triangular shape that will not roll off flat surfaces.
A lanyard loop protects the on-off button, so it’s unlikely that it will switch on accidentally and drain your batteries. Speaking of batteries, the one thing I don’t love about this flashlight is that it’s a little tedious to swap them out because of that loop.
You have to unscrew that button to get to them, and it’s tricky for me, I can imagine it’s even tougher for someone with big hands. The great thing about that loop is that you can put a carabiner through it and attach it to the outside of your backpack and for me, this is a tradeoff I can live with. This flashlight had me with the red light option. Find the Gerber Freescape Flashlight HERE.
