Gerber Recon Multi Colored LED Flashlight Review

When you are looking for a small, versatile and highly functional flashlight, the Gerber Recon Multi Colored Led Flashlight is a great option.

No matter if you are a military personnel on a tactical mission or a parent on a hiking trip with kids, or simply trying to find your way around your house at night, this flashlight gets the job done with no hiccups.

Here are our pros:

  • The flashlight is great for general use, fluid identification, map reading or night vision
  • There is low Watt LED with D.I.A.L technology (Diode Illumination Adjustable Lens)
  • There are 4 color options: blue, red, green and clear lens
  • There is a handy clip for an easier hand-free use
  • The flashlight has an anodized aircraft aluminum housing
  • The flashlight is small and fits perfectly a pocket
  • The battery is long lasting
  • It’s easy to turn this on/off
  • It’s not difficult to switch it from white to blue light
  • There is a dim light from the red filter
  • The green light is efficient to read maps at night
  • The rotating filter bezel is very positive and it doesn’t move on its own
  • The flashlight takes good amount of abuse
  • This is one rugged, reliable flashlight
  • The price is just right for the quality you get
  • The flashlight is well made
  • This is one versatile flashlight
  • The clip is handy
  • The white lens is for general situations
  • The blue light helps you identify fluids
  • The flashlight is lightweight and easy to carry around
  • This is great as a secondary light that completes your typical EDC light

There are some things that we like less about this flashlight, so here are our cons:

  • The clip needs to be of better quality as it’s a bit flimsy at the moment
  • The clip could be placed elsewhere
  • This is small, maybe too small flashlight
  • The light isn’t very bright so more Lumens couldn’t hurt
  • There are no instructions or how to use this
  • As it’s black, you can easily lose and not find anymore the flashlight in the dark
  • The beam is very narrow
  • The color switch is a bit difficult to use by children
  • The red is not red enough, it’s a bit too orange
  • This is not a flashlight to find your dog at night, for sure

In conclusion, this is a small, yet efficient flashlight that is handy and useful in many situations, priced well and with a great ability to take abuse.
