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

Pros:
* Very small size. * Good selection of modes. High, medium and low are nicely separated. Strobe is fast enough that it's closer to a strobe than fast blink. * Pocket clip is removable, although it is much harder to get back on than it is to get off. * Extremely lightweight. It's barely noticeable in your pocket. * Very positive action on the switch.
Cons:
* Very tight fit when using protected Li-Ion batteries. * Short enough that it's smaller in length than my palm is wide. This either requires an awkward thumb reach to turn it on, or I need to turn it on, then change my grip so the light isn't inside my palm. * Reverse clicky switch.
Other:
* Always resets to high after a short time. For me, this is a pro. For others, it might be a con.
Bottomline:
Well worth it. Even if it's not your favorite light, it's decent enough to pick one up, even if you just use it as a backup.
