Gerber Gear Round Up – Bear Grylls Intense Torch Flashlight

Gerber gear offers a selection of knives, flashlights, belts, and other survival tools for the outdoorsman. We purchased a small variety of Gerber survival tools, and put them to the test with our own weekend warriors, our three Boy Scouts. The rules were simple. They could select any of the products that wanted but had to write about their impressions.

Each week, we’ll feature a new Gerber product review written by one of the Scouts.

Intense Torch Flashlight

The Bear Grylls Intense Torch Flashlight has a durable anodized aluminum body with rubber overmold for comfort and easy grip in any condition. The tri-sided design wont’ let it roll on flat surfaces. It’s waterproof up to 1 meter for a period of 30 minutes. The weight of the flashlight with batteries installed is 5 oz. Shines up to 89 meters. The output and run time is as follows:

High – 140 lumens/1hr 30min
Medium – 35 lumens/8hr 35min
Low – 15 lumens/17hr

It also has a built-in SOS message beam that flashes SOS code at 140 lumens.

I like the Intense Torch flashlight because it’s great for my camping trips as well as around the house. The bright orange makes it easier to find and the run time is great. I do not like the low setting, however because I found the beam too weak when I used it at that setting. Everything else is awesome overall.

    Thanks for taking the time to make the post.
    For a small light, I will stick with my Nitecore EZ AAR5, which is 3 and 3/8th inches long, 165 lumens and only uses 1 AA battery.
    In my humble opinion, one should have a minimum of a 200-230 lumen light when camping.
    The Bear Grylls “survival” Flashlight seems like fun at a kids sleep over party.
