Customer Reviews

Due to this excellent edition I’m very happy with my purchase. I was amazed, when I first opened it, because it was too small. I’ve EDC pocket knife, which is small and the interesting thing is that both my knife and Fenix PD 35 flashlight are of the same size. I always show my flashlight to everyone and they are blown away by seeing a huge light come out from such a small flashlight.

      • After several weeks, it finish your batteries, although several conservation features are available with it.


This flashlight is quite well built and enough bright, even comparable to the high beam of a car headlight. Therefore, its light is very intense and the area it illuminates is quite large. It is very useful light and you can turn around in whatever direction you want. Even running at overloaded scale, it got a bit hot, but last for a long time. The Fenix PD35 must be put in the list of top tactical flashlights, as it deserves it. It has 98 customer review and 4.6 points on amazon, so you should have one.
