    Re: Breitlight Case material

    These are starting to show up in stores!
    The Hurricane 45 is a much better size. I'm working on a comparison review with my Avenger Bandit and aside from the water resistance, I greatly prefer the Hurricane 45 fir daily wear.

    As to material, Breitling is still being cagey, but some sleuthing reveals Breitlight might be a custom version of EMS' Grivory GVX.

    Re: Breitlight Case material

    According to https://gizmodo.com/breitlings-first...rtu-1765463172 it's plastic material. Not worth the price of admission in my humble opinion. One thing is for sure. If you try to sell it right after you decide it isn't for you, you'll find out that Breitlings don't bring a lot in the resale market. Good luck
    High capacity is not a substitute for good marksmanship.

    Re: Breitlight Case material

    A French-speaking forum managed to get a direct information from Breitling about their "plastic".
    The "Breitlight" is a "Carbon fiber reinforced polymer", a "Polyphthalamide".

    Breitling shared two Wikipedia pages about this material. I am not allowed to share links on this forum, but you can Google :
    Wikipedia Carbon_fiber_reinforced_polymer
    Wikipedia Polyphthalamide
    ... it should be the first URL in both cases.

    Even with colts and other lower model Breitlings over the years, the quality seems to remain. So I feel the same will be true of the new case material, especially if they went far enough to put their name on and patent the design.
