GSM Outdoors CYC-FL700GB Cyclops CREE XM-L2 LED

This is a mini-review on the Cyclops CYC-FL700GB LED flashlight from GSM Outdoors. If you are new to our mini-reviews, do check out our last one on Ultrafire CREE XM-L T6 900LM.

Cyclops is a decent brand among flashlights with some pretty good offerings, and when we came upon this piece, we thought that it deserved a mini-review.

The CYC-FL700GB is a 4 mode LED flashlight with a CREE/XM-L2 emitter rated at 700 lumens – decent, but nothing swanky here. The rear end has an emergency glass breaker, which is a neat addition. The buttons are responsive, and feel durable. The run time came to about 05 hrs 06 minutes (single trial, in high mode) out of a claimed 05 hrs run time, which is reasonable.

Some features you might want to note are:

  • 700 Lumens
  • 5 Hours Burn Time (on High/100% mode)
  • CREE XML2 LED Bulb
  • Machined aluminum body
  • ABS plastic housing
  • 4 Modes – High (100%)/Mid (40%)/Low (20%) / SOS
  • Up to 250 meters (claimed in High mode) – Not tested by us*
  • IPX7 Weather Resistant rating – Not tested by us*

Our package included

  • Nylon Lanyard
  • 4 x AAA batteries

Our verdict: At $29.99 at GSM Outdoors, or $34.74 at Amazon, this is not a cheap light, but the run time, and emergency glass breaker makes us say – Yes, mama!
