Olight M20SX Javelot Review

Posted by Best Light on

The M20SX Javelot is Olight's latest model succeeding the M20S-X which previously only had 550 lumens with an XM-L2 emitter.

Some things are better stated more than once, and the Tactikka +RGB's ability to stay on your head well thanks to the tight band, which clips on at the back, is excellent.
