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

Pros:
Small and compact, yet quite bright, especially on a 14500. Very nice looking - even better than in the pictures. Feels and looks like a quality build.
Cons:
Centre spot in light isn't as smooth as I would have expected. There seems to be some darks spots in it. On a 14500 battery, the light gets very hot very quickly.
Other:
Perfect light for the size. The glow in the dark parts are an interesting touch. You won't want to use it in the dark, because the light itself just looks so good.
Bottomline:
Buy it. You'll like it. You may need to wear some heat resistant gloves if you plan on holding it for longer than 4 or 5 minutes.
