Gear Review: LED Lenser SEO 5

Brand: Led Lenser

Model: SEO 5

With a beam that focuses via a rotating mechanism on the housing, the Lenser SEO 5 opens up to a broad floodlight for tent pitching and focuses down to a penetrating spot beam to hunt for a bear-bag branch. “I liked using the spot beam on the lowest of two brightness settings for close, precision work like fixing a zipper or applying Moleskin,” says one tester. He also adds, “The quality of light is excellent: dark-spot-free and even.” There’s even a little hook on the strap for hanging the light in your tent. $57; 4 oz.; IPX4; 3 AAAs; 180 lumens;
