    1. Amazing light
      Service
      100%
      This light was my very first Olight and I have to say I was not disappointed. The fit and finish as absolutely amazing. I've owned this light for about 3ish months and carried it most of the time. The beam pattern is excellent, it's right in the middle of a flood and throwy light. I can see everything right in front of me light a floodlight but it has a lot of distance if I wanna see something far out. It is a biggish light to daily carry if using jeans but it fits amazing in sweat pants/joggers. would defiantly recommend this light.

      I bought the OD green version on sale, but this is a phenomenal light. very rugged with a long battery life. Feels great in your hand and very easy to operate. Easily the best purchase I've made in a long time. i use mine every day.

      I use this light when hunting - going into a place in the dark for the first time I can light it up to see my treestand options. It also functions as a backup for night hunting for coon. It goes with me on every camping trip. The size, weight, runtime, etc. is an ideal carry light for outdoor trips of all kinds.

      i carried the OG M2R for 2 years before i finally got the Camo M2R Pro and WOW what a improvement the throw and brightness is sooo much better i just love the Camo color, i like it better than the new camo with more lighter brown. i also like the bigger strike bezel just in case i ever need it. Olight really out did theriselves with this one and i would recomend this light for anyone needing a serious EDC/Tactical flashlight.

      Powerful light, lots of options on lighting levels, I mean they thought of every lighting scenario (I absolutely love the moonlight mode) and it's tough as nails. Fit and finish is perfect.

      It's a practical, yet premium, product. I thought that the Baton Pro Titanium was my favorite light but this one is becoming my favorite now that I'm using it more. The neutral tint is nice even though that's not what this light is all about.

      I feel confident when I carry this light. Oh and it's been dropped several times over the past months and I swear I heard the light laughing one of those times. Did I mention it's tough? Throws light like a cannon with nice beam width too.

    9. The M2R was a beast...THIS? WOW
      Service
      100%
      So several years back when I took the plunge into "new light" territory as I have done many times in the past and was let down...I purchased an M2R from OLight. It was a beast of a light and I loved it, used it, abused it, showed it off and then lost it in the river while conducting a swift water rescue...

      Enter the M2R PRO.

      I thought I loved the M2R...the PRO can have my babies! Impressed is just an understatement. I have since acquired (flash deal) the green model and love both as if I am a flashlight polygamist.

      Tactically setup, modes that make sense...activation at two points as it should be, power and a sexy strike bezel that I hope I never have to use!

      While I will never use the strobe function (just personal opinion not gospel) it is still neat that they were able to incorporate it.

      Fantastic upgrade, buy it and thank me later.

      I work 3rd shift and have had a streamlight which is great, but this far surpasses it. The packaging To start is top notch, but just holding the light you can tell the quality. It is every bit as good as any other flashlight in its class I have ever had, yet they have listened to customers. The simplest and best charging system for people that use the light every night. Continence, quality and performance. I am sold and will forever be a Olight supporter.

      This light is all that i had hoped it would be! I ordered the od green. I had been waiting for another flash sale to get one and after the camo version came out i was in love with the green that was on it and wishing that they would come out with an all green version. I made sure i was up at midnight to get one since i missed the titanium baton pro. The down side to this green is it looks so nice i dont want to carry it lol. Now i hope they come out with a titanium version so i can edc it without worrying about ruining the beauty. Nice and very solidly built! Will definitely be buying another. Hopefully a titanium version

      This was my favorite Olight light for the longest time. It had good throw, good spread, and was decently small. Took the best parts out of all other lights and combined them into one. However, now there seems to be a problem with charging the light. When it is connected to charge the light on the charger stays green. It will not charge the battery. Were it not for this defect then I would easily give this light a 5 star rating.

      Service

      I would give a 5 star if I had received the desert tan I ordered during the Holidays but even after not getting it I can understand because it wasn't their fault. It was stolen through the mail somehow but oh well. I have the Camo one and it's a great light and it might very soon replace my M1X I've had for years. Olight has always made a solid light and I would love to get the all black for my ROTC now so maybe in the future. It's easy to use, tail switch is cake and switching modes is as easy as it can be for a light like this. The bezel is great and I wish more lights had bezels that aggressive like the older ones but that's why I hold onto the M1X still.

      Keep up the work!

    17. Solid compact spotlight
      Service
      100%
      This is definitely a good flashlight that packs hell of a punch for its size.

      Would I call it an upgrade over M2R? Not really. I would call it a different product. Why? Because despite being very similar in looks and UI it has very much different beam pattern. It is much more focused beam and as result it shoots much further and its spot is much brighter. It may be great for some application and not so much for the other. And this is one of the key characteristics of any flashlight. Now the battery. Yes, it is somewhat an upgrade. It's bigger 5000 over 3500 and I presume allows a higher discharge current to provide that 1800 lumen on turbo and it charges faster thanks to a new 2A charger. Good, right? Yes and no. See, the battery is proprietary and you can't use any other battery in this flashlight. M2R allowed you not only use any 18650, but also 2xCR123, which greatly improved chances you'll have a flashlight instead of a brick in situations, when your stock battery died. This probably is the greatest con of M2R Pro - strictly proprietary battery. One other minor con is it has plastic lens instead of glass on M2R. So it will be more prone to scratching and melting from that "heat cannon" called LED.

      To summarize. I like this flashlight overall very much, but I would not call it a replacement or an upgrade to M2R. It is a different beast, that I would recommend despite its cons.

      Pros:
      1. Compact and light.
      2. Powerful and quite bright.
      3. Great focused beam and significant range for its size.
      4. Rugged design and IPX8.
      5. Can potentially be used for self-defense.
      6. Decent holster unlike many other flashlights are shipped with.

      Cons:
      1. Proprietary battery.
      2. Plastic lens.
      3. Price.

      I own the original M2R as well. Both lights are fantastic. However they definitely made some welcome improvements to the Pro version. It’s noticeably bigger making it a little harder to edc but this allows for a much bigger battery. I love the charge level indicator light. The tail cap is significantly improved! The front bezel is a bit aggressive for my taste but that’s just my personal opinion. Has a more focused beam pattern. You can decide if that’s good or bad. Overall 10/10!

      I own the MR2 original, Warrior X and Seeker 2 Pro. This light is great for carrying at all times. It looks non aggressive, don't let it's size fool you. I keep the side switch on low and the tail on tactical. Can be used for normal lighting, or when you switch it to high it is extremely bright, with the tactical front and strobe this can be used for self defense or to light up the night. This is an excellent flashlight. You really have to see and feel it to believe it. The build quality is 1st class. The MR2 Pro is a show stopper

      I bought several Olight flashlights and the M2R Pro Warrior is by far my favorite. It is brighter and has a farther throw than the headlights of my Toyota Tundra truck. This thing can seriously be used as a defensive tool. On turbo or turbo-strobe mode, it will make anyone try to get away if you shine it near their face, even in the day time.

      I'd been looking for a new light to attach to the webbing on my EDC bag (which is OD and "coyote"), so the FDE-ish brown seemed like a no-brainer. What a great light, though!? This is my first really throwy light and I still haven't been able to find a place to actually push it. The tail-switch makes sense for the form, but I'm mostly just excited that it's still a surprisingly strong magnet for hands-free use.

    37. Nice design with dual switches, but could be even better
      Service
      100%
      I bought the M2R Pro in both black and camo during a flash sale. The fit and finish on both is excellent as you would expect from Olight. The camo version has a lot of dark colors to it. I would not have minded more tan and light green. I realize there are no two alike in the camo and it was just the luck of the draw. I still like the uniqueness of it. Even the threads on the body are camo. The tailcap takes about six complete turns before it comes off. The M2R Pro will still function even if the tailcap is loose, unlike with the Seeker 2 Pro, which must be screwed on as tight as it gets. The bezel and ring around the side switch on the black version are blue, whereas on the camo version, they are black. The new grooves around the body provide a very good grip. I like it better than the checkering on other Olights. The holster is barely long enough to hold the M2R Pro and it has a buckle lock that can often require two hands to open and close it. Velcro or a magnetic closure would have worked better in my opinion. It would not be a bad thing if Olight made the interior of the holster just a little more roomy to hold other lights of similar size or to at least be able to insert the M2R Pro into more easily. The M2R Pro fits almost too snugly, especially if the clip is attached to it. I worry about bumping or leaning into something and accidentally turning on the side switch. There are holes at the top and bottom of the holster. Both have metal grommets on them, whereas on the Seeker 2 Pro holster, the holes had stitching around the edges of the holes. The side switch can be difficult to locate in a hurry. Using the clip as an index can help. The dual clip is very stiff. It can be worn in either direction and can be attached near the bezel or near the tailcap. The lanyard has the comfortable feel of neoprene. It comes with a nice adjuster too, but the lanyard is too short. Even adjusted to the widest/longest setting, the diameter is still only about 3”. I have small hands and it was difficult to get my hand through the loop. It would be even harder if the user were wearing gloves. I have noticed this from Olight for years and with many of their lights. It cannot cost that much more to make the lanyard two or three inches longer. The new strike bezel is a welcome addition to the previous bezel design. It is not overly sharp but I can see it tearing a hole in your pocket over time if it is facing bezel down. The tailcap is magnetic and can hold while stuck to something metal upside-down. It cannot be attached to something sideways because it is too heavy and it will fall down.

      The M2R Pro is listed as a thrower and it definitely is. There is a usable amount of spill light but just barely. The concentrated beam is needed to achieve the farther throwing distance. Tint is neutral white. The NW tint is different on the two M2R Pros I purchased. It does not seem as bright as a cool white tint, but NW gives better color rendition and 1800 LU is still bright enough for most long distance uses. The tailcap switch works as advertised. It gives two different modes. 250 LU (Med-1) / 1800 LU (Turbo), or Turbo / Strobe at 1800 LU. 250 LU is too bright for close-up work. I would have liked to have seen 60 LU (Med-2 or even the 15 LU Low mode) / Turbo instead. The Turbo / Strobe is great for tactical purposes and a very useful mode for Law Enforcement. Runtime on Turbo is listed at four and a half mins. I got a little under four mins before it slowly ramped down to the lower level. The beam gets hot and after about 20 seconds, it was too hot to hold my hand in front of the lens. After about one and a half mins, the bezel became too hot for me to hold. High and Med-1 also yielded slightly shorter runtimes than stated on the specs by approx 15-20%. Perhaps after a few cycles of the brand new battery, runtimes will reach the specs. Otherwise, they were more than adequate. I did not perform runtime test on Med-2, Low or Moonlight.

      The dedicated MCC3 charging cable is short at barely over 20”. I was under the impression the MCC3 would be backwards compatible with previous Olight rechargeables lights, but it did not work on my Seeker 2 Pro. The MCC1 that came with my Seeker 2 Pro did work on the M2R Pro, but it took twice as long to charge. I called Olight and was told the two chargers were not interchangeable and to use the charger that comes with the light. I wish Olight would develop a charger that can charge all their customized batteries OUTSIDE of the flashlight with a single charger. It would be handy to still able to use the light AND charge a spare battery at the same time. Charging the battery inside the light takes the light out of commission during that time. Perhaps in the near future, Olight will develop such a charger. I would definitely buy one if / when they do. The M2R Pro can tail stand on its three prongs at the tail end, but you have to make sure the MCC3 attaches perfectly, otherwise you can get a false reading of green, leading you to believe the M2R Pro does not need charging. I had to wiggle the charger around just a little bit to make sure it was seated perfectly and making proper contact to the tailcap.

      The M2R Pro has its pros and cons, but overall, I am happy with my purchase.

      I have needed a better flashlight for a long time and this is it! I make youtube videos in creepy locations, often at night, and really needed something better than the standard, consumer grade flashlights. Nothings worse than being in a desolate location with no one around for miles, and hearing something but not being able to see what it is. The throw on this light is nothing short of amazing considering its size. It charges fast and holds a charge for way longer than you might think. The texture of the grip is just right so that you can hold it firmly but it's not uncomfortable. If you're on the fence about one of these....don't be. Just buy it and when you get it, you'll be glad you did.

      I love this light. I have had my eye on the m2r warrior for some time but never pulled the trigger as I didn't 100% love it. Then i saw the flash sale for Halloween on the new pro. Went for it and glad I did. I like all the upgrades of the pro better. This light blows some of my other brands of lights out of the water. Great throw and hotspot for a light this size. The side switch or tail cap are easy to use and navigate through the different settings. My only complaint just as a personal thing is the magnetic tail cap. Its not strong enough to hold the weight of the light in a horizontal position (not a deal breaker). So for me with the type of work I do, it just ends up collecting metal shavings and fines on it. I'm having to use an air compressor to blow the metal off at least once a day. Other than that tiny thing, I love everything about this light.

    40. Nice design with dual switches, but could be even better

      I bought the M2R Pro in both black and camo during a flash sale. The fit and finish on both is excellent as you would expect from Olight. The camo version has a lot of dark colors to it. I would not have minded more tan and light green. I realize there are no two alike in the camo and it was just the luck of the draw. I still like the uniqueness of it. Even the threads on the body are camo. The tailcap takes about six complete turns before it comes off. The M2R Pro will still function even if the tailcap is loose, unlike with the Seeker 2 Pro, which must be screwed on as tight as it gets. The bezel and ring around the side switch on the black version are blue, whereas on the camo version, they are black. The new grooves around the body provide a very good grip. I like it better than the checkering on other Olights. The holster is barely long enough to hold the M2R Pro and it has a buckle lock that can often require two hands to open and close it. Velcro or a magnetic closure would have worked better in my opinion. It would not be a bad thing if Olight made the interior of the holster just a little more roomy to hold other lights of similar size or to at least be able to insert the M2R Pro into more easily. The M2R Pro fits almost too snugly, especially if the clip is attached to it. I worry about bumping or leaning into something and accidentally turning on the side switch. There are holes at the top and bottom of the holster. Both have metal grommets on them, whereas on the Seeker 2 Pro holster, the holes had stitching around the edges of the holes. The side switch can be difficult to locate in a hurry. Using the clip as an index can help. The dual clip is very stiff. It can be worn in either direction and can be attached near the bezel or near the tailcap. The lanyard has the comfortable feel of neoprene. It comes with a nice adjuster too, but the lanyard is too short. Even adjusted to the widest/longest setting, the diameter is still only about 3”. I have small hands and it was difficult to get my hand through the loop. It would be even harder if the user were wearing gloves. I have noticed this from Olight for years and with many of their lights. It cannot cost that much more to make the lanyard two or three inches longer. The new strike bezel is a welcome addition to the previous bezel design. It is not overly sharp but I can see it tearing a hole in your pocket over time if it is facing bezel down. The tailcap is magnetic and can hold while stuck to something metal upside-down. It cannot be attached to something sideways because it is too heavy and it will fall down.

      The M2R Pro is listed as a thrower and it definitely is. There is a usable amount of spill light but just barely. The concentrated beam is needed to achieve the farther throwing distance. Tint is neutral white. The NW tint is different on the two M2R Pros I purchased. It does not seem as bright as a cool white tint, but NW gives better color rendition and 1800 LU is still bright enough for most long distance uses. The tailcap switch works as advertised. It gives two different modes. 250 LU (Med-1) / 1800 LU (Turbo), or Turbo / Strobe at 1800 LU. 250 LU is too bright for close-up work. I would have liked to have seen 60 LU (Med-2 or even the 15 LU Low mode) / Turbo instead. The Turbo / Strobe is great for tactical purposes and a very useful mode for Law Enforcement. Runtime on Turbo is listed at four and a half mins. I got a little under four mins before it slowly ramped down to the lower level. The beam gets hot and after about 20 seconds, it was too hot to hold my hand in front of the lens. After about one and a half mins, the bezel became too hot for me to hold. High and Med-1 also yielded slightly shorter runtimes than stated on the specs by approx 15-20%. Perhaps after a few cycles of the brand new battery, runtimes will reach the specs. Otherwise, they were more than adequate. I did not perform runtime test on Med-2, Low or Moonlight.

      The dedicated MCC3 charging cable is short at barely over 20”. I was under the impression the MCC3 would be backwards compatible with previous Olight rechargeables lights, but it did not work on my Seeker 2 Pro. The MCC1 that came with my Seeker 2 Pro did work on the M2R Pro, but it took twice as long to charge. I called Olight and was told the two chargers were not interchangeable and to use the charger that comes with the light. I wish Olight would develop a charger that can charge all their customized batteries OUTSIDE of the flashlight with a single charger. It would be handy to still able to use the light AND charge a spare battery at the same time. Charging the battery inside the light takes the light out of commission during that time. Perhaps in the near future, Olight will develop such a charger. I would definitely buy one if / when they do. The M2R Pro can tail stand on its three prongs at the tail end, but you have to make sure the MCC3 attaches perfectly, otherwise you can get a false reading of green, leading you to believe the M2R Pro does not need charging. I had to wiggle the charger around just a little bit to make sure it was seated perfectly and making proper contact to the tailcap.

      The M2R Pro has its pros and cons, but overall, I am happy with my purchase.

      As a PhD scientist and having worked in product development my entire career I can say this new M2R Pro is a great example of Design Thinking. They truly listened to the customer, understood their needs, prioritized them well and designed a product with the right specifications to meet those needs. It's one of the few products that I can honestly say I am 100% satisfied with-- I cannot think of anything I would change. Keep up the great work Olight. You are the gold standard for customer-centric design in my book ;).

      This is my 7th or 8th Olight. With that said I'm no pro by far. I am understanding this whole light thing tho... Starting to...
      I had know idea what throw meant, flooding ect.
      The amount of light, how compact ect is amazing to me.
      So to the point on this light.
      In short.... It's a great all around light.
      EDC light, glove box, back pack, camping ECT. You name it this light is small enough to fit and bright enough to cover just anything any average task you can think of... Next time I take advantage of the flash sale... I'm not gonna say.... I should have bought 2. IMO this light is fits the bill for almost anything.
      I'm becoming a stinking light-Aholic.

      Love the light, love the brightness options. Love the magnetic charger. Hate the pocket clip. You eed two hands to secure properly in your pocket. Tough to do when you’re on a traffic stop.

      I love this light so much I bring it everyday. Its a bad ass flashlight. Its a little heavy but I really don't care about the weight. Its gives me peace of mind when I have this with me. My only regret is not getting the bundle. Other than that, this is going to be with me everyday for a very long time! Nice one, Olight!

      Olight cares about max lumens. I don’t. I usually do not use the turbo function. I just don’t. I love the M2R Warrior. The M2R Pro is a bit different type of cat. It will hold brightness a little longer. It has a larger battery. It also has a tighter beam configuration. Less spill. OK...? This one may be acceptable for me. It casts a nice beam, but, has some staying power. A minute or two. Not a lot. I want continues............. I love Olights. M2R Pro, M2R’s, M1T’s or I3E EOS. To dumb to buy something else.
