Whether you prefer the versatility of the E2D Defender Ultra or the straightforward simplicity of the E2D Defender Tactical, SureFire has developed the superlative everyday-carry tactical light. The Defender lives up to its name in more ways than one. Machined from aerospace aluminum, its crenellated Strike Bezel and scalloped tail cap turn this robust illumination tool into a potential impact weapon, so it can take a beating—or give one if necessary. The Defender body also features a Type III Mil-Spec hard-anodized coating for abrasion and corrosion resistance in foul weather or other adverse environments. A bolstered dual-function pocket clip makes bezel-up or bezel-down pocket storage easy too. The very heart of these slender and powerful lights, it pumps out an intense, 1,000-lumen beam, precisely focused through our optimized Total Internal Reflection (TIR) lens. That’s plenty of output to momentarily disorient virtually any adversary and gain a crucial tactical advantage.
