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

Pros:
It has a nice stainless steel finish,fits well in the hand.Change the lanyard position holes and it can tailstand.GITD clicky and O rings. Has mode memory,is real SOS not sososos. 5 modes work.All 3 constant H,M,L and fast strobe and SOS It is waterproof
Cons:
Threaded length is very short,hard to assemble due to this.Also for the same reason will be very easy to cross thread. Not very brite,even though I expected to lose some output using AA instead of 14500's this is not very brite at all.My ITP A3 EOS AAA puts out as much light as this and it's only rated at 80 lumens.This was rated at 220,so looks like not even 1/2 that on AA.
Other:
This had all the right ingredients to be a GREAT light,but it is only below average in the end.
Bottomline:
Looks like an expensive flashlight,but does not perform like one. I would not buy one again.
