Fantastic (if expensive) carry light

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MI Written on November 23, 2009
An excellent every-day-carry light. Bright enough for self defense or target identification (if concealed carrying), but small enough to not get in the way. A little too small to use as a self defense tool in its own right.
The pocket clip seems to be wearing faster than expected, but the lifetime warranty will cover it should it break.
Very durable - I've dropped it hard at least 10 times with no damage, not even a crack in the lens.
Is very expensive; you may get similar performance from a Fenix for 1/3 the price, but if you need it to always work, no matter what, stick with Surefire.
Pros: Almost indestructable, reliable, lifetime warranty
Cons: Expensive, pocket clip doesn't feel too strong...
Would recommend: Yes

SureFire: Too Bad They're Over-priced

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on October 1, 2008
This is an outstanding light that has been very well thought-out. Both high and low beams are perfect for their intended purposes, the beams are focused very tightly for maximum distance--especially on the brighter setting, the size is great, the momentary/click-on-or-off button switch is great, and it's the brightest light for its size I've ever owned (I've owned over 50 lights, all modern designs.). Unfortunately, SureFire has also once again managed to over-price its product, even when considering R&D expenses. As soon as other makers--Streamlight, etc.--come up with their own versions that don't step on SureFire's patent rights, you can bet that the others will out-sell SureFire by at least 5:1. SureFire's name and overkill just aren't worth it. I only bought another one of these because I absolutely need it to go along with the two I previously bought. Then I'll wait till the other quality brands come out with their own versions and get some of theirs.
Pros: Versatility, size, brightness, toughness, beam collimation
Cons: Cost...
