Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Very bright with a decent spread for off roading. The battery pack is nice an compact and water resistant, not tried in but should be fine in a light shower, certainly not waterproof but could be made so with a bit of sealant. Its is very cheap for the amount of light you get
Cons:
The battery pack was crudely put together, the light stopped working but came on again when I moved the cable to a certain position. Took it apart and the cable sheath was exposed on both terminals and was shorting. Easy to fix but really poor workmanship and QA
Other:
Only one rubber band for fixing and it is a little big. Makes fitting easier but is not as secure. Would have preferred to have a couple to choose from.
Bottomline:
It has its shortcomings but is really good for the price, just be prepared to get your soldering iron out!
