Streamlight JR. F-Stop: First look at this incredible little flashlight

Posted by AJ Koenes on Feb 28th 2020

This is a small but long 250-lumen flashlight, complete with a rear push-button, a pocket clip, and a powerful L.E.D. bulb.

This year, at Shot Show 2020, I had the opportunity to speak with many amazing brands. One among them is the infamous Streamlight Company. A sample that I received from them is the Streamlight Junior F-stop. Now, first look at this flashlight, reminds me of a little Maglite I used to get for a dime a dozen back in the 90s. Be forewarned, this is not a Maglite and the number of features packed in this little flashlight are incredible. Without opening the packaging, I can tell you it comes with batteries. You will not be reading "batteries not included" anywhere on this package.


This is a small but long 250-lumen flashlight, complete with a rear push-button, a pocket clip, and a powerful L.E.D. bulb. The runtime for this little flashlight is 6 hours or better. It depends on how many times you've shut it off during the 6-hour stretch. As you may or may not know, a constant strain on a battery will deplete it faster than using it intermittently. You'll likely get more than six hours of use out of this flashlight if you shut it off frequently in between uses.


This flashlight has an expandable neck that will change the beam from a flood to a spotlight. This means you can dial it in to see way out in the distance or you can dial it back if you're doing close work and don't need the intensity. The spot beam will illuminate up to 150 yards and the flood will illuminate up to 250 lumens. The sliding bezel on the neck focuses it, making is easy to use with one hand.

This light also comes with a handy belt pouch. You can loop it through your duty belt and have it by your side all the time. It's waterproof up to one meter and impact resistant for any sort of drops, falls, and tumbles it may take during use. The pocket clip we mentioned earlier is removable and the entire body is made out of machined aluminum.


Later, we'll be doing a review on how well this light performs, we will look at how well it functions, and its durability and performance as we put it through the wringer. Stay tuned on Gear-Report.com to catch the latest on the Streamlight Junior F-Stop.
