Va­por+

RECOIL OFFGRID - - Pocket Preps -

With sev­eral stylish col­or­ways and a wood in­lay on its slim hous­ing, the Va­por+ has a unique look. Con­trol­ling the light is as easy as twist­ing the In­fin­ity Dial bezel to ac­ti­vate ei­ther all three white LEDs or a sin­gle red LED. The beam pat­tern is a nice mid­dle ground be­tween spot and flood. A rear-mounted pleather bat­tery pouch dis­trib­utes some weight to the rear and can house ei­ther a recharge­able pack or stan­dard AAAs.

PROS:

Sim­ple and in­tu­itive con­trols — twist one way to ad­just white light, twist the other to ac­cess red Avail­able in five col­or­ways, from plain black to funky ’70s-style “Vin­tage Parks”

CONS:

Hard plas­tic bezel dial feels cheap, and its en­gage­ment clicks are gritty

Strange triple-LED con­fig­u­ra­tion doesn’t pro­vide a sub­stan­tial ben­e­fit over a sin­gle light source, since there’s no way to ac­ti­vate each in­di­vid­u­ally. We sus­pect this was cho­sen for vis­ual ap­peal.
