If you want to survive in the toughest conditions, you have to be sure your gears are up for it. If you want to survive the toughest conditions in low or no light, then you better be sure you have a flashlight that is tougher than you are. The Atlas C57 is one such flashlight that will not only survive whatever you throw at it, but look good while doing so – thanks to its aluminum, titanium and carbon fiber construction, further bolstered by chromium tungsten and hard anodized coatings and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal (as opposed to regular tempered glass).
When it comes to flashlight, you have to admit that they look largely the same and that is something Atlas Flashlights is determined not to follow suit. In fact, not only is the C75 aesthetically different from ‘standard’ tactical flashlights, it actually allows you to customize the appearance to suit your taste. In addition to the removable front and end caps, the body’s shell can be removed for an entirely different look and feel. It also boasts a heat management system that composes of copper heat sink and high-performance vehicle exhaust-inspired titanium heat shield to aid in controlling the external heat, while protecting the internal from the blunt of high temperatures.
Other notables include Cree XP-L LED technology, IPX-8 standards for resistant against water ingress (up to 3 metre for up to 30 minutes each time), potted electronics for thermal and shock protection, four lumen settings (1,50,300, and 1000), tail and head stand design, dual power source options (18650 or two CR123 batteries) for flexibility, two mounting options (30mm with CF shell or an-inch, without), and a removable ‘Atlas Ring’ that keeps the flashlight from rolling around when place on a flat surface and also doubles as a connection point for a wrist strap or lanyard.
Atlas C57 comes supplied with a 3,400 mAh 18650 rechargeable lithium-ion battery, which is good for up to seven days of constant usage. Measuring 138 mm and 30mm in diameter (5.4 x 1.18 inches), this handsome flashlight is available in raw or coated carbon fiber and the titanium component, in a choice of natural or black chromium coating, to allow for a customizable look. Want one? Easy. All you have to do is back the product’s Kickstarter campaign for $139-$159 and keep your finger crossed that the project meets its funding goal or more in the 18 days or so.
