    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    * It just works. There's none of the odd quirks of other inexpensive flashlights; e.g. high-pitched buzzing, battery contact problems, overheating, etc.
    * High quality case with precise machining. Threads are smooth and tight even without oil or other lubrication.
    * Easy to grip and turn on/off with one hand.
    * Clean, even beam with well-defined edges and center bright spot.
    * Glass lens.
    * Forward click; soft press for momentary on.
    * Want a pseudo-lantern? Just screw off the head.

    Cons:

    * This little Romisen has been around for a while, so the LED technology is a bit old, relatively speaking. Emitted light might not be as bright as with newer flashlights.
    * There's only one mode. This may be seen as a plus by some, a shortcoming by others.

    OtherThoughts:

    * It feels like a much more expensive flashlight.

    Bottomline:

    * While this might not be the right light for illuminating a distant trail, it's more than adequate for everyday use. It's built to provide decades of reliable service.
