Bushnell Outdoors Rubicon Line

posted on January 23, 2014

Bushnell Outdoors has introduced the Rubicon line of flashlights, lanterns and headlamps, with optical technology from Bushnell to deliver brighter light and more efficient power.

With its Rubicon line, Bushnell Outdoors has addressed the problems with many outdoor lighting products, such as glare, low light and incorrect color temperatures.

Each Rubicon product is outfitted with high-quality, energy-efficient Cree LEDs for maximum brightness and extended battery life. By pairing the optics expertise of Bushnell with LEDs, these lights produce light beams that are brighter and clearer, nine of which operate on AA or D cell batteries.

Constructed of aircraft-grade aluminum, the Rubicon flashlight series includes six models in a variety of sizes and light intensities. Each Flashlight is American National Standards Institute certified and incorporates the Total Internal Reflective optic, with outputs ranging from 100 to 1,000 lumens and offering several illumination settings.

Available in February 2014, the six flashlights have suggested retail prices ranging from $29.99 to $99.99, while the headlamps retail for $29.99 or $49.99 and the two lanterns for $29.99 and $49.99.

Colt's Rarest Clandestine Pistol?

According to advanced Colt collectors, only about 35 or so of the original 400 factory Colt 1911s chambered for .38 Super have surfaced in the United States postwar, with only about a dozen of those remaining in their issued condition with their original finish, and given that the war officially ended on August 14, 1945, and since the OSS was dissolved on October 1, 1945, it isn’t likely any of them were issued before the Armistice.
