SureFire certainly isn’t lacking for quality products in 2017. Case in point: the new E1B-MV, a sleek, compact everyday carry light. Part of SureFire’s Backup line, this light boasts a virtually indestructible LED that delivers 400 lumens of light on high and five lumens of light on low. The “MV” in the name refers to the MaxVision reflector which produces a wide, smooth beam for close-range applications and helping you to maintain situational awareness.

Meanwhile, the E1B-MV sports a hard-anodized aluminum body, smooth styling and a two-way pocket clip that allows the light to be carried bezel up, bezel down and even attached to the bill of a baseball cap for when the situation calls for the use of a headlamp. The tailcoat switch features SureFire’s patented lockout feature and is programmed to lead with high output when on the first press or click.

The E1B-MV is available at a suggested retail price of $220.89. See below for specifications.
