Fenix has not yet released accessories such as diffusers (light diffusers) and filters of different colors for its new and rather successful flashlight model Fenix LD09. However, the situation can be corrected and a budget diffuser-diffuser can be made for this flashlight using a 12 gauge plastic hunting sleeve.

lanyard or put on a flat surface on the bottom of the sleeve itself. The igniter capsule is best removed for safety reasons. In addition, the absence of an igniter capsule in the sleeve gives two more peculiar bonuses. The first, in addition to scattered, we additionally receive a beam of directional light without removing the diffuser. And the second bonus is the opportunity to fix an additional suspension in the resulting hole.
P.S. After several months of exploitation of improvised diffusers made of 12-gauge plastic hunting casings.
White and green diffusers made of 12-gauge plastic hunting sleeves for the Fenix LD09 flashlight during trial operation fully met all their expectations. Easy to manufacture, lightweight and compact, they showed themselves only on the good side. True, I had to add a small carabiner to the kit, because in some cases the suspension by the eyelet was somewhat difficult.
Otherwise, there were no special complaints. Since the impressions of such multi-colored diffusers were only positive, over time, another one was added to the kit. This time, from a plastic hunting sleeve 12 gauge red. All three diffuser sleeves fit perfectly under the standard mount in the Maxpedition Fatty Pocket Organizer Magazine Pouch.
As a result, the following niches for the use of such home-made color diffusers were organized by themselves..
White sleeve general lighting, very convenient during cooking and eating in the dark.
Green sleeve firmly occupied a niche as intra-campus lighting.
The red sleeve minimizes the temporary loss of so-called night vision. Useful in terms of something to highlight, find or identify in the dark. After which the eyes again adapt to the dark much faster than after applying ordinary white light.
