High Intensity for Hunting & Search

Light up objects near and far with the NITECORE MT42 long throw multitask flashlight. Whether you're using it for hunting, search and rescue, land management, camping or exploring, the MT42 uses a CREE XHP35 HD to produce a focused beam with up to 514 yards of throw. With a max output of 1800 lumens and five total brightness settings, you'll have just the right amount of light for any task. Three special modes (Strobe, SOS and Beacon) add even more functionality for emergencies and location signaling.

Simple to Operate

No fumbling with awkward interfaces here. The MT42 features a tactical tail cap for on/off operation and a mode adjustment button located within easy reach on the light's bezel. With direct access to Turbo and the previously used setting memorized, you'll always have the output you want at your fingertips.

Extended Runtimes & Durability

Operating with 2x 18650 batteries, the MT42 can run for up to 530 hours in ultralow and up to an hour on Turbo. A built-in power indicator light under the mode button reports the remaining charge so you'll always know how much power is left. This durable flashlight has an IPX8 waterproof rating to withstand sleet, snow and internal shock resistance to withstand recoil when mounted and blunt impact if dropped or used for secuity.

5 of 5 Great LEO light May 20, 2019
Reviewer: Rod from South Central Texas  
This thing has a great throw combined with 1800 lumens. I don't care for the selector switch compared to other Nitecore lights, but it is functional. Just the right size for LEO work. Wish it had a wand attachment for it. Good SAR light too.
