Don’t be fooled by the size or price of the Streamlight ProTac 2L, it is a workhorse of a flashlight.  It is at the lower end of the ProTac line, but there is a lot to love here.

Tip – To use the TEN-TAP programming feature, tap the button quickly 9 times then on the 10th tap, hold it.  when the light turns off the light has been set to the next program setting.  So if you were on program 1 (default) you will now be on program 2, pretty simple.
Pros
  • Small for everyday carry
  • Super Rugged
  • A strong clip keeps the light secure

  • A little old-school comparison, a three-D cell MagLite vs the ProTac 2L – just for laughs…
    • Size does not matter
    • Output matters
  • Look the flashlight works underwater, but no floating 
Thoughts
Overall the ProTac 2L is a really nice light, good for the toolbox, glove box, or pocket.  For the price, it is a great entry-level flashlight for everyday use.  It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of some others on the market, but it does to all the basics very well. 
 
The flashlight looks cool, fits in your hand very nicely, and is very bright.  For smaller lights like this, I usually add some electrical tape or some hockey stick tape on the end so I can hold it in my teeth, but did not since we are giving this one away.
When you are looking for a  new flashlight to carry every day, be sure to put the ProTac 2L on your list.
