Respected bag maker Maxpedition appears to be ready to launch a new line of handheld flashlights. At this time, little is known about what type of light or lights might be introduced by the company, but a good guess would be something for the outdoor and tactical communities.
As of this writing, the only lights listed on the Maxpedition site are Fenix flashlights. But these have been discounted up to 40% as part of a “closeout sale.” It would seem the company is looking to deplete its inventory of lights from other companies. Presumably, this would be logical step leading up to the introduction of your own line of lights.
One possibility is this Maxpedition Molle Light ML found over at Optics Planet. I cannot find any reference to this light ever having been made by Maxpedition, so is it a leak of one of the new lights – or just an old page that was never removed from the site?
The Molle Light ML shown is a 50 lumen light rated for a three hour runtime on one AA battery. The lights are said to come in a variety of colors including tan, green, black and even “glow in the dark.” Different lights come with different filters.
So, is this one of the new lights they will introduce in 2013, or is this something old?
