Klarus XT11GT Pro V2 Tactical Flashlight

Klarus XT11GT Pro V2 Tactical Flashlight

Today, I’ll be taking a look at an equally-important light in Klarus’s inventory, the legendary Klarus XT11GT Po V2. This light started out way back in 2013 as the XT11, a dual-switch tactical light targeted towards duty and tactical use. It took the industry by surprise with dual rear switches and (for the time) impressive 1060 Lumen output courtesy of a Cree XM-L2. We all know the matra, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, but for flashlights, that goes out the window since companies jockey to keep their inventories up-to-date and competitive. Klarus is no different, continuously improving the XT11 over its lifetime. This new for 2021 Pro V2 version promises a significant bump in output, increased throw, and a UI that appeals to tactical or professional users. I love tactical lights, and I’ve reviewed some of the best on the market so far, so maybe the K11GT Pro V2 will dethrone my go-to choices? Let’s see!

Package quality.

The XT11GT Pro V2 came in a very retail-friendly package. This is common amongst the bigger brands that have the resources and channels for brick-and-mortar retail sales. It has a hangtag with the white and red Klarus color theme with a picture of the light front and center with nice graphics and feature blurbs. I really like the clean, uncluttered layout and it’s a very premium-looking package. The outer box top lifts off and inside, the light was inside the holster sitting in a cardboard holder under a lift-open cover with some preliminary instructions on it. To the right, the accessories are in their own box (like Olight’s accessories). Here’s what you get:

  • Klarus XT11GT Pro V2
  • Klarus 18GT-IMR31 battery (loaded in the light)
  • Lanyard
  • Holster
  • Spare o-ring
  • Manual
  • USB A to type C charging cable

Like the competition, Klarus includes everything you need to get going. This is great for a first-time buyer who doesn’t own a charger or li-ion batteries since they don’t have to buy them separately (hint, hint, Acebeam). The accessories are decent quality and nothing special but should give good service. The molded rubber logo on the holster is a nice touch. Only one o-ring? C’mon Klarus. On a $90 light, a single o-ring is a bit cheap.
