One of Europe's bestselling flashlight brands has arrived on the U.S. market, thanks to Leatherman Tool Group's April purchase of the German company that produces the LED Lenser. Most flashlights have either a lens or a reflector, but LED Lenser's Advanced Focus System has both. It provides a focused beam for long distance and a wide spill beam for up close. You can easily switch from wide to narrow by using the thumb on your holding hand to slide the bezel in and out. The P7 model is 5-1/2 inches long and takes standard AAA batteries. A thumb-operated button toggles the light between three brightness levels: 30, 130, and 175 lumens.
