I’m guessing you no longer need one but just in case. Original owner, box and papers. $150 delivered. I base the price off of a e1o 45/3 model that recently went for about $150. Mine is the 90/3 model.

Oh wow. Someone does have one. I am interested. That’s the exact one I want! Is the beam Floody or is there a tight hotspot in that?

Tight hotspot. Very tight. 5 low 90 lumen high. 41 hrs runtime low, 6 hrs on high. The story on this light is that I had all of the outdoorsman series at some point and sold all of them and decided that this E1L-A along with several E1b's would be my "legacy" lights that I would keep forever and never sell. I typically carried the original e1b along with its upgraded versions over the years and rarely used this one. Owned 4 backups at some point. Bought it around 2013 I think along with the "new" backup which was then 200 lumens. They had the same "new" head design (were both wide at the end instead of being tapered). Basically the backup came on high and gave you about 45 minutes on high, and the outdoorsman came on low and gave you 6 hours on high. Same beam pattern, just different output and runtimes. Now carry the EDC1lt and an occasionally a Malkoff bodyguard.

Its still a viable light if you want a single primary cell and a long runtime on high. Not impressive compared to modern lights like the EDC 1lt, but by the same token, you only get about 45 mins on high with most newer offerings.

It has a few dings that can be seen in the pics near the top of the head. Body and tail in good shape. If you want it I can mail it Monday. Payment would be via paypal and shipping included in the price. We'll be gone most of today and tommorow, but will check this later today as well as Sunday. (or maybe not out, its gonna be almost 100 today in central VA.)

Thanks for the info I appreciate it! I’m gonna have to pass on this one. I was hoping this would of been a floodier light. I’m just gonna stick with my Malkoff. Been buying too much lights lately haha.

There is someone else interested though,

Akula88 said they wanted seconds if I didn’t want it

Sounds good. I know the feeling (of buying too much). Thanks for the info, I'll contact Akula88.

Don't know what you have but the SF Tactician and the Max Beam series are VERY floody. Too floody for me. The EDC1LT is my definition of a perfect balance. Malkoff Hyper Throw series too throwy to be useful for me. (plus no low) Bodyguard series a nice balanced beam but also lacks the usable low (unless you leave it on for 8 seconds), I've carried the bodyguard a bunch but always find the SF EDC more useful.

Good luck in your Illumination journey.

Thanks for the info. I’ve found the Malkoff MDC li-ion SST-20 4000K head with low/med/high is the best I’ve found in the many years on my flashlight hunts. It’s an almost perfect setup for me
