Atlanta, GA December 3, 2013 – Olympia, a brand of quality products since 1903, introduces the RG series and the AD series of high-performance flashlights. Olympia flashlights offer the highest lumen output and features for the price point.

Both collections have been designed with the active lifestyle in mind, offering a flashlight that is light-weight, compact and robust with features. These two collections of rugged, high-brightness lights will be the go-to flashlights for all situations including hunting, hiking, camping, caving, general household use, recreational activities, rugged sports, industrial worksites or emergency situations. Combine that with an Atlanta based repair center and a full 2-year warranty, buying Olympia flashlights adds up to a great value.

The RG series by Olympia features four high-performance rugged flashlights ranging from 245 to 850 lumens. It uses innovative Cree® LED technology to ensure high-brightness for any illumination need. Each light is crafted from aircraft-grade aluminum with Type III hard-anodized anti-abrasive finish. The textured body offers an anti-freeze non-slip grip making it easy to use with gloves. Every model has five light settings including strobe and SOS for emergency situations. These lights even remember your last setting so that you do not have to repeat the menu sequence every time you use the lights. All are waterproof to IPX-8 (up to 2 meters for 30 minutes) and impact resistant to 1.5 meters. "The Rugged Series of flashlights offers the extreme outdoor enthusiast a high-performance yet affordable portable light system", says Bob Donnellan Vice President of Sales Americas. "Many of the high-performance lights today are priced out of the reach of most people. Our RG lights will give people the performance they need, the price they expect to pay and reliability for years to come."

The AD series, also using Cree® LED technology, ranges from 160 to 220 lumens. Each of the four AD models are crafted from aircraft-grade aluminum with Type II hard-anodized anti-abrasive finish. All have five light settings including strobe and SOS for emergency situations. The AD line is waterproof to IPX-7 (up to 1 meter for 30 minutes) and impact resistant to 1 meter.

"We are excited to show our customers these hand held light solutions at 2014 CES and SHOT Show", says Terry Uhrich Chief Operating Officer. "We have listened to our customers who have asked us to find innovative solutions for the markets they serve."
