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.
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.
Other:
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 that's 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:
Buy one bundled with the UF charger and some UF protected batteries!
