I've been looking for an orange flashlight and have had little luck.
I've seen a Streamlight Vulcan (or something) light that was like $125 - too much :(
Pelican Super SabreLite (already have one) :D

But really, there don't seem to be many choices for a flashaholic who's wanting an Orange light. Anyone have any ideas?

Please post links/photos of what you've come across - ideally, LED and not incan. :thanks:

You can get a yellow Surefire G2 and dye it yourself with RIT dye, which is cheap and common. This was a popular option a few months ago, with excellent results.

There is also the Malkoff MD2 in orange, a phenomenal light that you can use with any of Mr. Malkoff's wonderful dropins.

Wait, save up, and get the Malkoff. The special ceramic coating is really nifty! I sure like mine!

Orange?! where?

i was at an outdoors sporting good store just the other day, and was really close to buying a yellow surefire G2. just to match my yellow spyderco salt-1.:twothumbs
i prefer orange much more than yellow tho.

but thought it over, and need to save up funds for the LX2.

If you can find a yellow SureFire G2 with a removeable bezel retainer you can dye it orange. Just make sure you remove the window before you dye it, ask me how I know. Also, I remove the o-ring in the tailcap and the spring beforehand. Then clean the head, body and tailcap with water and dish soap to remove any grease/lube. Watch the light as you dye so you can take it out when you have the desired color. Let it dry in an arid (dry) environment and/or in the sun for a couple days, especially the tailcap. Reinstall the window, retainer, o-ring, and spring, and then lube all the threads, and you are done. It is not expensive to do although it is very time-consuming, which is I why I don't do it anymore. I have one pure solid orange G2 and one half yellow/half-orange I did just for giggles.

Most importantly, buy one with the removeable retainer on the bezel. Many of the new ones have a different type of retainer.

thanks for the suggestions so far!
I didn't know about the Malkoff lights...gotta look into those.

Yeah, I remember people talking about dying a yellow G2.
Might buy one already dyed but probably going to skip trying it on my own. :D :shrug:

I looked at BrightGuy but don't see too many orange LED flashlights.


Keep those suggestions coming! :popcorn:
