    Default I need a low-output light on my duty vest

    Hi, I am looking for a light which is similar in scale to the Olight Perun mini (just not as overpriced) with a low output which I could wear on my tac vest (cop here) so I can write easily at night time.

    Thanks in advance for any advice

    Connected to your vest, lower output (are we talking 10 or 20 lumens?), will that be its only job?

    Nitecore Thumb. Up to 85 lumens on high in case you need to have your hands free but still need quite a bit of light, like say a traffic collision investigation or crime scene investigation. It has red only output as well. USB rechargeable and the head rotates through 120 degrees so it can point down somewhat while still on your vest.

    They also make a LEO version with a UV LED and custom ordered warning lights.

    Check out Manker E02II..

    For under 25 bucks, it's a tiny AAA light weight angle head that comes with a deep pocket carry clip suitable for a duty vest

    UI has 5 moonlight settings from 0.1 lumen, so not to blind your traffic stops

    Perfect hands free capability to assist in CPR or emergency child births (:

    I use the 20 lumen QuiqLite. Pelican makes one similar called VB3 2320 that puts out 9.

    I like the QuiqLite because it can do 10 in pitch black or 20 where there's light pollution.
