The Streamlight Stylus Pro is one of the worlds most powerful and durable LED penlights. The high flux LED is boosted by a new technology which boosts the power coming from the batteries. This new tech provides a very strong beam of light. It also works to maintain battery life and ensure consistent lighting.

I’ve taken this stylus on two kayaking trips and also brought it when I went camping. The kayaking trips took place in Pine Ridge Ontario. I was glad to see that it really is water resistant, a few times the entire flashlight got submerged underwater and kept on working perfectly which is pretty cool. I had the light secured by lanyard to my life jacket and was mainly using it as a spotlight to try and scout for rocks ahead of our team.
When I took the Stylus Pro camping I used it as a general flashlight. The light output is very impressive for such a small tool. The high flux LED has an incredible 30,000 hour (3 year) life span. This means you never need to change the bulb which is a huge plus.

While camping I decided to do an abuse test after a few of my friends told me the Stylus Pro is unbreakable, I was eager to prove them wrong. I started off by dropping the light from about 6 feet directly onto a rock 4-5 times. Surprisingly it still turned on. Next I decided to submerge the stylus in a stream of water for 25 minutes and it is was STILL perfectly functional.
At this point I decided to step it up a notch, I did an extreme pressure test by running the Stylus Pro over with my 4×4 pickup! I let the weight of the truck rest on the flashlight for a couple of minutes and it somehow survived that test as well! In the future I may do a video abuse test of the Stylus Pro to see just how much more it can take.
Admittedly I’m kind of a gear junkie and own quite a few different flashlights including a high end Maglite. Since I got the Stylus Pro I haven’t used or purchased any other light. Streamlight Stylus Pro is the best penlight on the market for around $20.
