Of all the Fenix Flashlights I've owned, I have two favorites - but they're both the same model. Let me explain:
The Fenix PD20 was my first Fenix light. I had just graduated high school, and I could starting investing into things I was really passionate about.
I had always been interested in flashlights, and I wanted to buy a good one. So I researched for hours and decided to buy a pocket-sized, LED flashlight called the PD20. That flashlight changed my life, and showed me what potential LED flashlights really had. At 180 lumens, it was the brightest flashlight I had ever owned up to that point. I loved the different brightness modes, and the SOS and strobe features, but I especially loved the twist-to-dim feature, which allowed me to turn the light on dim, no matter what brightness settings it had been on before.
But then one day, I lost it. It fell out of my car while I was working and I never saw it again. I quickly purchased a replacement, the PD32 UE and that was a great light too. But it never had quite the same feel as the PD20.
I went like that for a year, using my PD32 UE as my EDC,and in the course of time I got engaged and found myself on my wedding day. My wife and I exchanged wedding gifts, and she gave me the best gift ever. Knowing of my love for Fenix lights, she had scoured internet and found something I thought I would never see again - a Fenix PD20.
Now I have my favorite light with me again, but this time is has so much more meaning. Not only was it my first Fenix light, but it was a wonderful gift from my wife. The compact size, the bright LED, the orange peel reflector, it's just all perfect. And just like my wife, it never leaves my side. That's why it's my favorite flashlight.
