Pros:
Sturdy, and mostly well made. The pump action beam focus has a nice smooth action. The bright setting is nice and bright, the dim provides a good light that is perfect for reading etc. The strobe setting ... strobes. The beam is very even at maximum angle, and narrows to a bright square at the other end. The clip easily allows it to be clipped up or down.
Cons:
Threading on the tail cap is a bit 'gritty', so that detracts from the quality feel. Also the large clip actually makes it hard to find a comfortable hand holding position - but it's easily removed if necessary. Battery compartment is a little large for an 18650, but once it's all done up there is no rattling.
Other:
This is a great LED torch running off a single 18650. Apart from the gritty thread on the tail cap I can't really fault it.
Bottomline:
It's a bit too big to keep in a trouser pocket, but sling it in a bag and it's perfect to carry around.
