    Pros:

    This is a fantastic light. There are nice O-rings everywhere, a glass lens about 3mm thick. Everthing is lubed from the factory. It seems to be very water resistant. Nice build, smooth threads. FLIPPIN BRIGHT!!!

    Compared it to the TK10 and it seems almost as bright. More daylight colour than the TK10.

    Aluminium reflector.

    Seems to only warm slightly when left on,(although i didn't leave it for long- about 7 mins) There is a fat O ring seal under the lens.

    The little clip is easily removable, ask for instructions if you havent guessed.

    Cons:

    There were a few shavings in the reflector. Threads were a little messy at first but easily cleared from loose bits. Body seems a little thin compare to other flashlights but should definitely withstand being smashed around a fair deal.

    OtherThoughts:

    The glass lens can be removed from the top of the head. There is a plastic ring that threads into the head of the flashlight with the lens underneath. At first it wasn't tight enough so I think thats the reason for water vapour appearing under the lens after the first 2 mins of use. Cleaning the lens then tightning the plastic ring cured that problem.

    Bottomline:

    A great flashlight, buy a few bundled with the ultrafire charger with protected 3.6v batteries! You will love this one.
