SUNNYVALE, Calif. -( Thyrm introduced the SwitchBack in 2014, dramatically improving the most popular flashlights for military, law enforcement, and civilian use.

Features included a pocket clip and a finger ring that provided increased flashlight retention and opened the door for new flashlight techniques.

The SwitchBack 2.0 is the next evolution, incorporating new features and refinements based on 1000’s of hours of use by subject matter experts and customers.

  • pocket clip position that allows for deeper carry

  • small crush ribs on the lip that create a custom fit across a broader range of lights
