    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Very nice looking. Good build quality. Two O-rings on head and one on tailcap.

    Glass lens. Fit and finish are very good. No blemishes anywhere. 5 modes. Reverse clicky.

    It's an excellent "thrower," and should be good for long distance. It still has good useable "spill" light so you can also see things up close.

    240 lumens is probably close to the actual output. It's pretty bright.

    Cons:

    It has "next mode memory." Whichever mode you shut it off in, when you turn it back on, it goes to the next mode. Also there is no O-ring for the lens.

    OtherThoughts:

    I see no good reason for next mode memory in a flashlight. I would have rated it higher if it didn't have this type of memory.

    Bottomline:

    If you want a really nice looking light, that's an
    excellent "thrower" and don't mind this type of memory, than for this price, it's a good deal.
