Exclusive Offer on LED Lenser Lights for SSD Readers from Extreme Outfitters

Extreme Outfitters is now a stocking dealer for LED Lenser’s line of high performance lighting solutions.

In 1993, the bank refused to grant LED Lenser’s creators a business loan and they had no real estate to offer as collateral. All they had were fresh ideas and the prototype of the first LED Lenser V8 flashlight. For the gentlemen at the bank, who told them that the V8 was unsellable, that just wasn’t enough. So In 1994, with 1,000 DM, a sketch book, toolbox and old Atari computer, twin brothers Rainer and Harald Opolka struck out on their own and founded LED Lenser, in their garage, in Germany. With all the passion and courage of two young, newly-minted entrepreneurs, they managed without the bank and to their own surprise ended up selling more than 200 million Euros’ worth of LED flashlights in the first five years. The V8 became an international design classic and one of the the top-selling LED flashlights in the world. Now as they like to say, “We are our own bank.” As if to remind anyone of this who might happen by, today a lone, and tattered, pirate flag waves over their Solingen headquarters.

Fast forward 17 years, hundreds of patents and design awards later, and LED Lenser a company of more than 1000 employees, three manufacturing bases and a range of some of the world’s highest-quality LED flashlights. And today, just as in the beginning, they remain driven by light: the emission, channeling and powering of light.

Until the end of September Extreme Outfitters is offering 20% OFF all LED Lenser lights with the discount code “LED”. This offer is only available to Soldier Systems Daily readers.
