Why This Is My #1 Titanium Flashlight! Convoy S21G Review


Convoy S21G (SFT40, 3000K) Flashlight Review

General thoughts after a week of usage/size comparison/practicality/interesting things:
• So I was browsing the Convoy website… and came across this new light – had to check it out! Simon from Convoy sent me a free sample of the S21G for review. One thing I love about this light is the clean and minimalist look. Even the branding is barely visible. I’m a big fan of the Convoy S6 which also follows this minimalist design with no branding. The finish is amazing and it’s difficult for me to decide whether I like the polished Ti or stonewash version better.
• You get the light and a lanyard, that’s it! Unless you order a battery separately.
• Comparison with T2 and S2+ Titanium (polished)

Overall Construction, LED, lens, bezel and reflector
• Excellent built quality – it feels like it’ll survive a drop from the top of a building. The stonewash finish lends well to titanium somehow – and I worry less if I drop it, as scuffs will just blend in. The cutouts are all machined perfectly with no imperfections or sharp edges. This is particularly important with titanium. The tail switch appears to be made of titanium as well. You can take the light apart very easily – no special tools are required. It has a nice weight to it as well but is still suitable as an EDC, unlike some copper models. It feels like a premium-quality light, and I like the low-key design.
• Takes a 21700 cell for greatly sustained output.
• SFT40 in 3000K. Can get other tints too Also comes with the XHP50.3HI in various tints. SMO reflector. Simple bezel with no crenulation.

UI – modes
• 12 mode groupings. Reverse switch. Press once to switch on, half press to switch modes. Mode memory can be turned off.

Performance – total output, beam profile, longevity, practicality
• Beam is throwy with lots of spill thanks to the SFT40. The XHP50.3 would produce a larger hotspot but won’t throw as far.

• No onboard charging, or battery included.
• Gets hot on higher modes – this is due to the titanium host. Mainly the head gets hot, tube gets warm but comfortable to hold.
• A little heavier than aluminum – could be pro or con. Still light enough to carry around.

This is one of the best-looking EDC lights in my collection. The stonewash titanium build gives the light a premium feel and makes it more durable, slightly heavier but still comfortable enough to pocket. Somehow the high CRI and 21700 cell formal makes this light feel like more of a tool, given the wider range of applications.
