This is my Fenix TK-35 review. The TK-35 flashlight is a workhorse and this flashlight puts out 860 lumen on “turbo” and 15 lumen on “Low”tk35 It comes with 4 batteries CR123A (which are pricey but you can get rechargeable ones). I would recommend using 18650 batteries as they are more efficient, cheaper and last much longer. It also comes with a wrist lanyard, holster and extra o-ring. It is made from hard anodized aircraft grade aluminum and is very tough. Ive seen videos on YouTube where people have thrown this down the street and even submerged and froze it solid! It still worked. It’s available here for 10% off using my coupon code “youtube10
This flashlight is TOUGH!

Now, here is a very valid question “Can I take this flashlight backpacking”? The answer is both yes and no!

Yes you can take it backpacking if you do not mind the weight. It weighs in at 13.5 oz which is too heavy for me to bring backpacking so no you cant take it because its too heavy! I would leave it at home or in the car or use it car camping. When I go backpacking i usually go as light as I can and take only the minimum so this light would not work for me to carry.

Is it a great light? Undoubtedly…
