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

Pros:
Very bright
Good build quality
"Medium" setting useful on the road
Light weight allows use as helmet light
Long lasting battery on medium
Flashing light perfect for daytime visibility in heavy rail
Easy to change lens color
Inexpensive
Cons:
More mounting options needed
Need to include helmet mounts
Should include a "spot" reflector
Need switch instead of unplugging battery cable
Ordering/shipping time is long
Other:
Half of my commute is in the dark and I should have got this light a year ago. The small size of the battery allowed me to jury rig a helmet mount (should be included). Helmet mounted, I avoid blinding traffic and any pedestrians just by a slight nod of my head. I use the medium setting that gives me 5+ hours of battery life. I use the high setting on rainy mornings on dark roads. The flashing light is useful for cars seeing you during downpours during the day. The light seems fairly waterproof but the lens did fog some in the rain (easily fixed by unscrewing the lens and cleaning it. It would be nice to include a green lens for better visibility and a spot reflector for a more focused beam. Should have a switch instead of unplugging the battery which will eventually wear out the plug.
Bottomline:
Get it now! See and be seen.
