SureFire Unveils Cost-Effective 2211-series Signature Rechargeable LED WristLight

2211 Signature
Variable-Output Rechargeable LED WristLight

Tactical flashlights worn on the wrist, known as wristlights by SureFire, have continued to develop since TFB first reported on them in 2013. At that time, the adornment was little more than a flashlight with a max output of 180 lumens with a steep initial price of $495. That particular light-only variant evolved significantly in both quality and consumer price – now seen on SureFire’s website for $169.

For those seeking a more watch-like option, the company released the SureFire 2211 Luminox WristLight (Rechargeable Variable-Output LED WristLight + Watch) in 2013, a variant that remains prohibitively expensive for most of us at retail price of $649.

Great news for those interested in the gear but not necessarily the luxury. SureFire has announced the 2211 Signature Variable-Output Rechargeable LED WristLight. At roughly 30% the cost, your first thought might be, “Okay, what’s the difference?”. You’re not alone. I went through the product pages for you line by line, because TFB loves you.

(1) – These features are reiterated from the respective product pages. Items like a scratch-resistant face may be common to both, but weren’t specifically mentioned.

Additionally, the new Signature watch states “There’s even an optional 2211 WristLight Conversion Headstrap accessory (sold separately) that allows you to convert the WristLight into a headlamp”. While I assume this headlamp will work with the Luminox model as well, it isn’t mentioned on the website.
