These are accessories for Fenix torches which have outstanding filtration ability to create strong red/blue/green light.
With high penetrability for fog and smoke, they can be used as a signal lamp, for hunting or to protect night vision as necessary. Uses a toughened ultra-clear glass lens with anti-reflective coating that provides heat resistance and maximum light penetrability.
Please Note: Descriptions for each filter are provided below, please select from the drop down options box (above).
Red light is generally used for protecting your natural night vision. Used by aircraft personnel, the military and hunters to avoid spooking game, deer and other animals that see very poorly in the red colour spectrum, also ideal for fishing as it attracts young fish and does not reflect off the water surface. The filter is also useful for close range, non-tactical applications such as map reading as it reduces the intensity of light output. However it is close to infra-red band so an enemy with a night-vision devices has a better chance of seeing the "hot-spot".
Green light is especially useful in sharpening outlines. The human eye is most sensitive to the green range of light, it's the brightest of all the colours but this also makes it easier for others to see you. For self protection it provides an added glare effect and is invisible to wild animals. Green light also does not attract insects like white or yellow light does. It is also useful in smoke or fog filled environments.
Blue is well suited for use in law enforcement as it increases visibility of sweat and blood. It also aids in the tracking of animals. But is not as good at protecting your own natural night vision. The filter is also useful for close range, non-tactical applications such as map reading as it reduces the intensity of light output.

Fenix AOF-S+ filter x 1 (either red, green or blue, depending upon your selection)
I bought my first set of all three for an art project, not expecting much given the relatively cheap price. I was surprised and impressed by the quality out of the packet. I misplaced them and ordered another set, worrying they might sell out and liking them so much. Eventually I found the original set and put them in in case I lost them. Of course I did, and I'm about to make my third purchase! BTW - shop around and compare prices on some major websites. Torch Direct's price is much lower. Pros : Fantastic high grade filters, amazing value for money.Cons : No storage for the lenses, though at this price it's hard to complain.
Okay, it gives red light. But, for me, it doesn't improve night vision the way the item description suggested. I tried the torch with and without the filter several times and I always saw better without it. I don't like the rigid plastic sleeve which fits the filter over the torch head; it feels like it will crack after a while if not treated very carefully.The main attraction for me though is the claim that it will not alarm wildlife and I haven't as yet been able to test that.
