ATactical A1S VS. Fenix PD35TAC Head-to-Head: 1000 Lumens, Who Wins?

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars

I was intrigued by the idea of ATactical. Was it just a Thrunite with a different name? And was a light that offered over 1000 lumens for under $30 a good deal or too good to be true. In this video, we put the new ATactical A1S up against the Fenix PD35TAC. Check it out to see which one you might like to purchase.

  1. I work for LAPD and I bought the AS1 to EDC on duty as a lighter backup light and its been two months, works great! No issues after dropping and rolling around on the ground trying to secure a suspect. One time after hitting the sidewalk, it wouldn’t turn on but after inspecting the flashlight, I found the battery cap had worked lose. After screwing it down tight, flashlight still performs great! I carry a portable battery charger in my work bag if I need to charge the USB battery.

  2. love your vids any chance for a tsa edc vid. going to Disney in Oct and truly hate being away from my preps and getting anxiety about it kinda.

    1. I’ll see what I can do – check out David from Ultimate Survival Tips – I think he’s got one on that topic.

  3. I have had the A1 version for several months and the light is fine. I don’t abuse my equipment but I am certainly not easy going it either; but had no issues with A1 which was about 19.99. I am adding the A1s and at 29.99 you can not go wrong. Fenix makes some great products but the simplicity of A1s at little over 1000 lumens is fine for me. But someone else may prefer all the different modes of the Fenix. Thank you for another great review.

  4. I have both the ATactical A1 and A1S. Love them both. While I don’t have the Tac version of the Fenix, I do have an older PD35. One thing I’ll say for Fenix… their Strobe is crazy effective as a deterrent… more so I’d say than many others. As Freddie Dorris commented, I too plan on getting several A-Tactical lights to give as gifts.
