Safariland Introduces the ILS Compact Flashlight Series
Bright beam hand-held lights using standard alkaline batteries

ONTARIO, California – Safariland® announced today the release of the Individual Light System (ILS) series flashlights featuring a unique dual output for an instantaneous switch from low to high light on standard alkaline batteries. An extension of the popular RLS™ (Rapid Light System) light, the new ILS collection is comprised of two hand-held models - the ILS-1 and ILS-2. The ILS-1 is a mini hand-held light with an integral clip that can easily attach to any belt or garment while the ILS-2 is a longer hand-held light with a pocket clip for easy carry.

“With the great success of our RLS, expanding our product line to hand-held lights was the logical next step,” said James Dawson, Category Director, Safariland Duty Gear. “With our ongoing emphasis on offering innovative products to the marketplace, our new hand-held lights are no exception. The dual output switch and ability to run on standard alkaline batteries sets these lights apart from the rest.”

The ILS-1 is a hand-held mini-light with a 1” diameter (25.4 mm). It features a dual output of either 190 or 10 lumens. The output can be switched instantaneously with the push-button tailcap. There are also three small peripheral buttons on the tailcap that can be pressed for the low light option. The ILS-1 operates with three standard alkaline AAA batteries and includes an integral clip for easy attachment to a belt or garment. The flashlight face has a scalloped bezel to help dissipate heat should the light be left face down while turned on.

The ILS-2 compact light model also boasts a 1” diameter (25.4 mm) and has the same multi-button tailcap. Featuring a dual output that can be switched instantaneously from 15 lumens to 450 lumens, the ILS-2 can adjust from a wide angle to a focused light beam. This light features a removable scalloped bezel that allows for either a scalloped or flat face, depending on preference. A pocket clip is included for easy carry while a circular grip adapter assists in utilizing the light in a “between knuckles” shooting position in low-light conditions. The ILS-2 operates using six AAA batteries.

Available now, the ILS-1 has an MSRP of $98.00, while the ILS-2 has an MSRP of $120.00.
