They upgraded the protac 2l as well as a bunch of their lights in 2013 - the new model for 2013 is listed as having 260 lumens versus the old model of 180 Awesome light especially with the upgraded lumens
180 lumes might even be a lil far fetched. The light is a nice lil addion to the tackle bow or glove box. If you only want 1 light this size spend 67.00 on the Fenix pd-32. It has a good spot light and a wonderful flood. Side switch, memory, and clean white light. Go with the older R5 led. The new led is tempermental so go with the r5 in the pd 32. 320 lumens. I still like my streamlight and use it quite often. $30. Is ok price. I do like the small packeage. This light is easy to conceal. Hoe depot now sells cr123a batteries 12 for $24.99.
