After the successful launch of the SwitchBack light in 2014, Thyrm is back with an updated take on the design unveiling the SwitchBack 2.0.
The SwitchBack 2.0 is designed to fit around flashlights to offer a multi-function finger ring and pocket clip to tactical flashlights. A dramatic improvement over the old design, according to Thyrm, the 2.0 is touted as the next evolution in the company’s accessory series. I
ncorporating new features, the flashlight accessory is designed to work alongside military, law enforcement and civilian shooters. Mounting securely between the light’s tailcap and body, the 2.0 allows for a repeatable grip index and enhances ergonomics while shooting.
The 2.0 now features a stronger pocket clip that works alongside MOLLE/PALS webbing. The clip position has been improved to allow for a deeper carry. The light now offers a wider thumb rest with traction features in addition to small crush ribs on the lip that create a custom fit across a broader range of lights. An aluminum spacer now expands compatibility to Streamlight HL and HL-X lights as well as other manufacturers with similar designs. Topping off the 2.0 is the finger ring which releases under heavy torque but easily resets.
“We spent the last year paying close attention to our customer’s feedback, working with our experts to test dozens of prototypes. We couldn’t be happier with the new design,” Thyrm CEO Andrew Frazier said in a press release.“As with our other gear, we are proud to design and manufacture the SwitchBack 2.0 in the USA.”
The design comes in three colors — black, urban grey and tan — and is available from Thyrm with a price set at $19.99.
