Despite a brutal heat wave in Philadelphia, our friend Robert Jolly took part in the 20in24 race this on July 17-18. The 20in24 is a fundraising run in which participants run (ideally) 20 laps around the Schuylkill (for those not from the land of cheese steaks, that’s pronounced “Skookle”) running path, which is 8 miles.

I can still remember getting my first headlamp. It was actually brought to me by the Easter Bunny – beleive it or not. At the time, I was still in Cub Scouts and was just starting to get excited about an upcoming week long camping trip.
I dug the big blue and yellow headlamp out of the plastic [...]
Our friends from Grupo Espeleologico Anthros in Costa Rica have shot over some killer shots again. These guys are really out there doin’ it.
In an industry where you find a lot of people saying “Oh, it’s just a flashlight…” it becomes an intriguing and often fun challenge to make those same people care about lights. You can make your lights pretty colors, come up with catchy names, and design cool advertisements, but in the end, it all comes [...]
For the second time this month, Princeton Tec is lucky enough to share success with another badass Ultramarathoner. Ian Adamson successfully completed the Badwater Ultramarathon last week, placing 18th overall and 1st overall in the Masters Division (45+).

Born into a family of outdoor adventurers, I grew up taking annual summer vacations across the state in a household effort to explore all that nature has to offer.

I took a few days last week to head up north to run a demo on board the Cape Ann Diver II. They hosted a number of shops on board, both Cape Ann Divers and Mass Diving, and some other lobster divers from around the area. To give you a little frame of reference, Gloucester [...]
Squaw Valley to Auburn, California. 100 miles over mountains, rivers, canyons, and snow. Most people wouldn’t drive it – let alone run it. Simply put, the Western States Ultramarathon is one badass race.
And we at Princeton Tec are lucky enough to be friends with one badass dude. Gary Robbins successfully completed Western States 100 for the second consecutive [...]
I owe you folks a longer blog from my adventures over the past few weeks, but wanted to tide you over with something before my trip up north to Massachusetts and the foul-mouth fishing capital of the world: Gloucester. I did some lobster training off the coast this weekend aboard the Venture 3, departing out of [...]
When people ask us “what do you do?,” we usually respond with “well, we sell flashlights”. Working at Princeton Tec is not something that is easily described to people, because we do so much more than just sell flashlights. We realize that becoming a part of something much more than ourselves is integral to our [...]
