Asked for a mag light for xmas and got this from my fiance. It is hands down the best flashlight I've ever owned or personally seen. Its unbelievably bright for its size. The finish is that rubbery metal feel that makes it feel warm even when its cold. The button on the back does not click down, its for brief use, you twist the end cap to turn it on permanently. I wouldn't dare look right at the beam because it is so bright and the spot it throws is very well defined. From about 100 feet you can turn an area about 12 feet wide into daylight, and make everything in front of you visible. Range is like, 250 feet. The build quality is so sturdy I fully expect it to outlive me and I'm 30. It comes in a lame blister package though and with no holster, but that's where your money must go if you spend $150 on a flashlight. Because you couldn't possibly make the flashlight itself much better than this beauty.
Looking at how much you can spend to get a flashlight this bright, the $50 neighborhood is a heckuva deal. This is coming camping with me and I'm gonna be buying another one as a backup. Can't recommend enough.
Pros: Super bright, rugged, good looking, heavy duty
Cons: none - lame packaging and no holster I guess - nonissues.
