      The E2D Defender Ultra is the next generation of the venerable Surefire E2D Defender series. The high beam intensity is up from 200 lumens in the previous model to 500 lumens...a huge amount of emitted light. I use this flashlight as an everyday carry (EDC) and it fits relatively comfortably in my pocket with the well-designed/highly functional clip that allows for head up or head down carry. The fit and finish on this flashlight are just amazing--oozes quality. The texture on the outside ensures that you'll keep a firm grip on the light and if you should drop it, this flashlight is tough enough to take the punishment and soldier on. The strike bezel is aggressive and would serve well as a defensive option. I highly recommend this flashlight. It's the perfect tactical/EDC flashlight.

      I owned one of the last model the 200 lms. although this one have 500 lms it doesnt seem brighter. the p2x with dual output looks like more powerful. i prefer the low 5 lumens output to come first then in an emergency you can click it fast to highter output anyway. i used the low output more often anyway. just my preference.

        Comments about SureFire E2D Defender Ultra LED Flashlight:

        There are dozens of quality flashlights out there but for me, Surefire is still the original and the best. Whether you hike the woods or are into urban exploration or if you just want a huge amount of light when you need it, this light is it. Military, police, search and rescue folks swear by them and although I have other lights by Fenix and Olight, my Surefire lights are always with me. They work every time, all the time.

            I would have given it 5 stars if the switch was easier to get to! I want to take the clip off and it's impossible w/o using tools. My other Surefires are easy to remove the clip.

                Comments about SureFire E2D Defender Ultra LED Flashlight:

                Bought it for hiking and emergency use around the apartment. The 500 lumen setting is very bright and would probably only be useful to me when blinding intruders. The 5 lumen setting is perfect at night without destroying your night adapted vision.

                The build quality is superb. The crenellated strike bezel is a bit pointy, but not sharp in my opinion. I have the flashlight riding in the side pocket of my Ona Brixton camera/messenger bag and there aren't any issues with it getting snagged when removing the flashlight.

                    Pro:
                    CRAZY bright. I can light up the side of a large building from 150 feet away. Hard to believe something this compact can do that. I use it for inspecting in hard to see cracks and crevasses. 500 lumens is blindingly bright even from 20 feet away ( I had a friend test it on me after I stood out side in city-level lighting for a few minutes...just a quick flicker left me seeing spots for a good 5 minutes...great in a self defense situation.)

                    Fits nicely in my work shirt pocket or inside pocket of a jacket.

                    Crenellated forward edge nicely imposing and have a bit of an edge.

                    Pocket clip allows use lens up or lens down.

                    Well made feel right out of the box

                    "Low lumens" setting good enough for night walks with these 50+ year old eyes.

                    Fits nicely in my hand (I do not have large hands)

                    Can stand it up on end either when on

                    Will not roll

                    Lanyard holes at button end a nice touch ( along with secondary crenellation...not as "sharp" as lens-end crenellation)

                    Cons
                    Really cannot think of any that would not borderline on the nit picky; but the attachement clip seems like it could break if not carefull (So I am careful)

                    Comments about SureFire E2D Defender Ultra LED Flashlight:

                    I walk my dog very late at night in some bad areas.

                    PROS: It has a very useful long runtime on its LOW setting... meaures in DAYS! and a great run time at full power, This light is SUPER bright on high. No question it would blind an attacker. The light is super well made with it TIR optics giving the 500 lumens a tight center focus with lots of throw as well as enough side spill to be useful. Best and most useful flashlight I have ever owned. The compliance crenalation on the front or the rear are less abrasive on your clothing than the previous E2D LED but would be very agressive when the light is used as a baton.

                    CONS: NONE

                    Everything I wanted in a tactical flashlight. Plenty of throw ( like a car headlight!) and some flood at the sides.
                    Will never need another. Glad I waited.

                                  I use my flashlights as EDC items. This flashlight is no different but WOW...It's awesome. It exceeds all my expectations. From the minute i saw the box I was amazed. What great packaging. Surefire took great care in making yet another quality product.

                                  The E2D Defender Ultra is the next generation of the venerable Surefire E2D Defender series. The high beam intensity is up from 200 lumens in the previous model to 500 lumens...a huge amount of emitted light. I use this flashlight as an everyday carry (EDC) and it fits relatively comfortably in my pocket with the well-designed/highly functional clip that allows for head up or head down carry. The fit and finish on this flashlight are just amazing--oozes quality. The texture on the outside ensures that you'll keep a firm grip on the light and if you should drop it, this flashlight is tough enough to take the punishment and soldier on. The strike bezel is aggressive and would serve well as a defensive option. I highly recommend this flashlight. It's the perfect tactical/EDC flashlight.
