Friday Night Lights: Olight PL-PRO Valkyrie

Our Editor in Chief Pete asked some of us to honestly review some Olight lights. No this was not a request direct from Olight. As Luke C. had mentioned in his Olight S2R Baton review, this is a non-shill review. I had already bought some Olights on my own with my own money before Pete asked us to.Yeah. Normally we request loaner guns and gear on a test and evaluation basis directly from the manufacturer. As you may know me by now, I like weapon lights and the Olight Valkyrie lights were priced reasonably with decent performance on paper. As the title states, we will take a look at the PL-PRO Valkyrie pistol light.

Olight M2T Warrior

I semi-retired from reviewing flashlights…but when Olight reaches out to me, it is my pleasure to come “out  of retirement.”  I’ve mentioned this in Olight reviews before, but Olight won me over when they donated an entire day’s GROSS SALES PROCEEDS to the family of Marshall Hoots, the founder of Goinggear.com.  Marshall passed away at far too young an age, and the proceeds of the sales will definitely help his wife and children.

450 Lumen Pistol Light – Olight Valkyrie PL-1 II

I was taught in a training class years ago that 60-80 lumens on a short range weapon light was more than adequate for defensive situations. Has that sentiment changed with advances in LED technology? A new pistol light, the  Valkyrie PL-1 II from Olight, projects 450 lumens, which leads me to believe that their is increased demand for high output lights on handguns.

Lightning Review: Olight M18 Maverick

I have always carried a flashlight in some form or another and over the years I have gone though quite a few of them.  My last light was a Fenix PD32 which I liked, but still felt like I was having to settle on the features.  So when I lost my PD32 a week before SHOT back in January I set out to find a better light while I was there as my side mission.  When I stopped into the Olight booth I was greeting with well made lights that all had a similar UI (user interface) and felt solid.
