Good to see that old whale of a website has been taken down... now to see how long it takes this new one to come up.
nice find! Hopefully with this and with the help of Bob, they will get back to being the Peak that many of us fell in love with
After getting an HDS, other flashlights seem much less relevant (Except for some of the really special lights found on CPF!)
When things are really dark, a dim light for a long time is much better than a blinding light for a short time.
YES!. I would own at least 3 (or more) of their light"s but when I go there I waste half Hr. or more just drooling only too leave empty handed. Thought it was just myself, but have heard more than a few express their frustration with the site. I have even had stuff in the cart only too cancel out of not being sure what I was ordering. YIKES. Hope the new one is better.
Looks really nice.
This is a good omen, I was sad when Peak could no longer maintain the levels of customer service we have come to expect, especially they make some of the finest lights at affordable prices. I hope things go North from here...fingers crossed.
pl. excuse brevity & possible typos - sent from a tiny device.
Eiger, Eiger Ultra and UltraX have been added to the site. Basic info and good photos are there.
Yeah just noticed it too, hopefully they add some Logans and a Shopping Cart.
Unless they add some special options unavailable from RMSK, I 'll just continue to order from Bob who is a lot easier to reach and ships a much faster.
So far, only the eigers are there. But I really like the format of this new site. Still under construction. Who cares how long it takes. It's a VAST improvement over their other site. Would you rather see the same antiquated site? Or wait for the new one, regardless of how long it takes? I'm hoping Bob will take over this and ordering from RMSK will now be done from here.

At last a shipping option to the UK.
I feel an order coming on!
I don't know...Seems like the cart has made too fast an appearance. Where is the diffuser, and the "...Battery Cap (to be) used with extra battery compartments to carry spare batteries, or anything else that may fit inside and be used as a water resistant container."
I'm not ordering anything until these are shown with an option to include these extras in the order. There is also no word as to whether the qtc pills in the newer lights they are offering are redesigned or from the older batches. ...and personally I wish there was a no qtc option, but that may no longer be possible but from Bobs old stock. It would also be nice among the "specifications" if the Lumens otf with different battery types was listed.
I'm optimistic, but have my fingers crossed this doesn't get botched in the form of taking too long and then feeling rushed...taking too long but being thorough is a far better option imo.
If I hadn't picked up an Al Logan 17500 from Bob already, I would've placed an order for a neutral (219?) Nichia. I'm really happy with the light.

I'd love to order a couple lights today, however, until they allow ordering non-QTC I have no interest. I've had 3 and none worked to my liking, and I wasn't expecting much.
One arrived with the threads completely worn out from the previous user after minimal use. The others were had varied and intermittent operation without constant tweaking.
This site will be great for Peak, sad to see that the fixed levels are a thing of the past. (I've got my fingers crossed that will change!)
There is a non-QTC option. If you can't get in touch with Peak you can always go through Oveready.

Poor choice of words on my part. Light arrived with TIPS of threads worn out as the threads on the head did not engage the threads on the body. Manufacturing defect aggravated by resistance from QTC operation.
Mistakes happen. Regardless I'll still be getting a brass El Cap level 3 if possible. Probably an eiger too.
Thanks for the tip!

Oh yeah, a big HALLELUJAH for them getting their own site up and running. Looks great and it seems as if they're doing it just right.
The new site is looking great, hopefully the full catalog with all options will be available soon. I haven't bought a new Peak since last year and am itching to try the new QTC, but need to read more reviews first.
A huge improvement from the old site. Long overdue.
