Surefire Brings to Light their NEW 2211 Wristlight

2211 Wristlight

The newest Surefire 2211 Wristlight was announced at SHOW Show this past January, but like a lot of things, it was slow to hit the market. Well, it is finally on Surefire’s website and hopefully at your nearest dealer. Nicholas C 1st reported on this from SHOT Show, and now we have a little more information as well as photos to go off of.

2211 WristlightThis model is hands-free and rechargeable just like previous ones. The most noticeable difference is the large, central button for simplicity. You can click through 3 levels of intensity: 300, 60 and 15 lumens with run times of 1, 4 and 13 hours respectively. These 3 intensity settings can be set to go from low-to-high or high-to-low. Whatever the end user prefers. The multiple intensities are handy for an array of uses from the simple to extreme. Surefire orientated the beam to parallel the muzzle of your pistol when using a two-handed grip, or if you cannot see where you dropped your cellphone in your car. For those who have owned 2211 Wristlight models in the past, you will also notice the now polymer body; formerly aluminum. This gives it a lighter weight and a lower price point.

2211 WristlightThis revamped 2211 Wristlight uses an LED as its light source and has a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. Both of which are efficient in their battery usage. For added simplicity, there is a “fuel gauge” which easily indicates the remaining battery life of the 2211 Wristlight.

This wristlight can also be mated to a headlamp strap for added utility. This comes separately, of course. The strap for the wristlight itself is adjustable so whether you got wrists like Popeye, or that of a .410 Gauge shotgun barrel, it will fit you.

The one downside which seems to come with all Surefire products is the steep price tag. The quality is always there, but it may be too spendy for the weekend, range-warrior or tinkerer.

The outdoors, fitness and anything related to firearms are my passions. I am a S&W Armorer, Glock Armorer, reloader and am coping with an addiction to classic S&W and Colt revolvers (by buying more revolvers). I’ve been a guest writer for Sierra Bullets and love long walks to the gun range.

    Is surefire still made in the US? I ask because this exact design has been floating around eBay and Amazon for months now with free “epacket”shipping from China. I thought about getting one to see how I liked a wrist light before dropping the big money on a Surefire.

      link? I was just thinking how helpful this may be getting ready/into the woods for early morning hunts, esp with a red filter.

    If it was also a Casio G-Shock I’d be all over this.

    I have the Luminox watch version and the older version. They work great on your support hand wrist when shooting hand gun. Problem arises if you wear a watch. The Luminox solves that problem but it is so thick that it doesn’t fit under a long sleeve very well and you end up wearing outside your long sleeves.

    And it’s only $229. What a bargain.

    Looks like you still need both hands to turn it ON. I don’t like that because you have to turn it ON making yourself a target. Might be OK for a mechanic working on a car at night.
