I'm torn between a couple of flashlights, the Streamlight Protac 2L 260 lumens 4.68" length and .90" head diameter weighs 2.8oz and the Fenix PD-35 850 lumens 5.1" length and 1.0" head diameter weighs 3.1oz both run on two CR123a batteries. I'm looking for a light I can comfortably carry everyday for defensive carry, with all the gear I already carry the smaller the better.
So the obvious answer seems as though the Streamlight would be the way to go. But the Fenix has me second guessing being it's not much bigger and packs such a huge punch. The Fenix also can take rechargeable 18650 and rCR123a or primary CR123a's. The Streamlight can only take primary CR123a's.
So I guess my question is, could I comfortably carry the Fenix PD-35? Is there another pocket rocket I should consider? Or should I go with the Streamlight Protac 2L?
