  • Excellent light for everyday carry

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

    Pros:

    * Very small size.
    * Good selection of modes. High, medium and low are nicely separated. Strobe is fast enough that it's closer to a strobe than fast blink.
    * Pocket clip is removable, although it is much harder to get back on than it is to get off.
    * Extremely lightweight. It's barely noticeable in your pocket.
    * Very positive action on the switch.

    Cons:

    * Very tight fit when using protected Li-Ion batteries.
    * Short enough that it's smaller in length than my palm is wide. This either requires an awkward thumb reach to turn it on, or I need to turn it on, then change my grip so the light isn't inside my palm.
    * Reverse clicky switch.

    OtherThoughts:

    * Always resets to high after a short time. For me, this is a pro. For others, it might be a con.

    Bottomline:

    Well worth it. Even if it's not your favorite light, it's decent enough to pick one up, even if you just use it as a backup.
