The Olight mantra of iterative improvement strikes again, this time in the form of another aggressively bezeled wonder. Is the M1X a worthy successor, or has this design simply grown long in the tooth?
Pick your options. Olight is rapidly converting into a flashlight buffet, allowing each user to select the features that best meet their needs.
If Olight’s Baton series has gradually morphed into their primary line, then the S30R is definitely their flagship model. Formed gradually through evolutionary design, it is the culmination of many small improvements over time resulting in a formula for success.
Purpose built lights have been on the decline lately, with everyone trying to provide one light to meet every need simultaneously, but there’s something to be said for those lights that just do one thing, and do it well.
It seems that with the LED revolution, flashlights have almost irrevocably shrunk in size to provide for better portability. Does this brave new world have any room left for more traditional large lights?
