Bravo Series
MF Tactical vs. the Cheap Chinese Imports
Intro to by MF Tactical


The single mode (high only) MF Tactical Bravo-is the end result of MF Tactical‘s comprehensive design project to reinvent the low cost, compact and efficient rechargeable tactical LED flashlight category.  By basing the Bravo Series on the American made, highly efficient and reasonably priced Cree® XM-L T5 LED emitter, we were able to design and build an absolutely bulletproof flashlight that is bright as hell and made to hold up to a lifetime of demanding use.  Plus, our deep diamond knurling pattern insures that the Bravo will stay securely within your grip no matter how wet and slippery the environment becomes.

Bravo Series has all of the upgraded design elements normally found only in our Pro Grade flashlights: heavy gauge shock resistant aircraft grade aluminum with an HA II grade anodized finish, an upgraded precision heavy duty switch mechanism and a lens made from hardened ultra-clear mineral glass with anti-reflective coating.  By building this incredibly high quality flashlight body around the cost effective Cree T5 LED, we are able to offer the 900 max lumen Bravo-1 at just $39.99, the lowest price ever for an MF Tactical Pro Grade LED flashlight.

Bravo-1 is the single mode (high only) Bravo Series flashlight.  Made for users who prefer the simplicity of an on/off only flashlight, the Bravo-1 gives you everything you need (and nothing you don’t need) in a well built, compact 6″ long tactical flashlight.  But unlike all of the Chinese competitors out there on the internet, the Bravo gives you our best feature of all:  MF Tactical design, workmanship and quality.  The first thing you will notice when you pick up a Bravo-1 is the feeling of security you get from having such a well made and finely crafted precision tool in the palm of your hand.

Many of our early Bravo-1 adopters have told us that they would prefer to have a momentary-on switch instead of the standard on/off click switch.  For this reason we have added the option to customize your Bravo-1 with an upgrade to a high quality, heavy duty momentary-on switch mechanism.  This feature allows you to briefly activate your flashlight by lightly pressing the tail switch button, and the Bravo-1 remains lit until you release the button.  If you need the light to stay on, simply press the button until it clicks, and then it will stay on until you click once more.  To order this upgrade, click and select the “Upgrade to Momentary-On Switch” upgrade option from the menu above before placing your Bravo-1 in your cart.

The Bravo Series is America’s answer to the onslaught of cheap Chinese flashlights that have flooded the market.  Like all MF Tactical flashlights, the Bravo is built with an aluminum reflector, which is an integral part of a quality, high power flashlight.  The generic Chinese flashlights being sold as “US Navy Seals” tactical flashlights all have cheap plastic lenses instead of a metal reflector, and as a result they are cheaper to manufacture but far less bright.  Without a reflector, these low grade “focusing” flashlights don’t actually focus any light, but merely create an optical illusion by masking out the outside of the beam. Don’t be fooled by the bogus performance claims and snake oil sales tactics of the Chinese companies pretending to be American military suppliers offering surplus flashlights to the public.  Bravo is the real deal, and MF Tactical gives you quality and value for your dollar, not a cheap disposable flashlight.

The Bravo was built to run on a single high voltage 18650 rechargeable li-ion protected battery (Do NOT use CR-123A’s or any unprotected battery). While the price shown for the flashlight is without batteries, just use the “Battery Options” and “Charger Options” menus when you put this light in your cart, and you can choose from a variety of options with one or two of our top quality rechargeable li-ion batteries and your choice of charger, all offered with no additional shipping. We also stock a variety of accessories, such as red and green color filters, mounting hardware, remote pressure switches and holsters.

SMO Reflector Options:

SMO or “Smooth” Reflector
Standard “OP” or Orange Peel Reflector.

If you would like to upgrade your Bravo-1 to maximize the throw distance of your flashlight, we offer the option to upgrade your reflector to a highly polished SMO smooth reflector. The standard OP or “orange peel” reflector has a textured surface that acts to evenly disburse the light over a wider field, which makes the light have a bias towards flood or spill. As some users prefer their light to have a bias towards throw, which concentrates more of the beam towards the center, sending more of the light farther down field, we offer the option of upgrading your light’s reflector to an SMO reflector.  Think of the difference as the choice of loading your home’s light fixture with a spot light bulb vs. a flood light bulb.  If you would want to maximize your light’s throw potential through the use of an SMO reflector, just check the option box when ordering and either upgrade your standard OP reflector to the SMO reflector or include both OP and SMO reflectors.

9 reviews for MF Tactical Bravo-1 Cree LED Tactical Flashlight – 1 Mode

    Followup from my review of July. 2017. Still very impressed with this light, in fact even more so now. This light has been attached as a weapon light on a carbine for over a year now. Thousands of rounds thru the gun, and the impact and abuse this light has taken has not effected it at all. Still works perfectly. For me, as a weapon light, single mode with momentary on is the only light I would want.

    I received a Bravo 1 last year as part of my graduation package from my Pipe Fitters Local Union. The light has been at my side every day since I got it and has never failed me. Solid, reliable and bright. What else need be said.

  3. Joseph Piekarczyk (verified owner)

    Over priced junk. My use of it has been indoors, using it to find where some ailing pets threw up or wet. Fully charged it yesterday and today it was laying on the floor highlighting a spot I was cleaning and it just shut off. Checked battery and its fully charged. A side annoyance is the usb charger connection. It’s a narrow opening. My better USB cables are to wide to fit in. I had to dig out a cheap junky cable because that’s what fits.

    I use my Bravo 1 for Home Inspections. Would not consider using another light!! Seems hard to find a single function light, not to mention Bullit proof!!

  5. george (verified owner)

    I have four different flashlights from these folks, and honestly, this one just might be my favorite. Single mode, momentary on option. Excellent light, well balanced in my hand and a screaming bargain at the price.

    Ordered my Bravo-1 on Saturday and got it on Tuesday! Was impressed even before I put the battery in. Clearly not a cheaply made flashlight. Good heft and obvoiusly made with attention to detail and to be robust. Put in battery, and this light is BRIGHT! Extremely pleased and looking forward to showing off my new Monster at work.

  7. Simpson

    I have about 30 flashlights in my house. Now that I have a bravo 1 mode, they are all going in the trash. With all the hype and bull on the internet, it was really hard to figure out who is just blowing smoke, but this bravo is really impressive. The build quality, fit and finish are just so much better than all of the cheap lights I have. Its bright as hell and clearly built to last forever. Im a monster flashlight fan for life now. Will be getting one of the big boys next. Glad I found these guys.

    Very nice flashlight. This is my 4th Monster light and it is very good. I don’t know how lumens is calculated but it is not much brighter than my R5-350.-1. Thought it would be a big difference but it is negligible.

  9. Ki Park (verified owner)

    I have purchased Bravo-1 for My Work and I am happy with it, it’s perfect size to carry around. This is My 3rd one from the Monster Flashlight I had purchased other two Flashlights
    2 year ago for previous Company and they are still using it.
