Pros:
Looks really cool almost a replica of sku 33602 with zoom function. Has a clip and the light works really great. The flood is really bright and lights the whole area and the zoom function focuses not very far, but really gets the work done.
Cons:
The sliding mechanism is quite hard and has to be lubed and still after lubrication, its still not very smooth. The click button is not very comfotable to use should be like sku 33602 then it would be awsome. Some of the O-rings are really thin and cheap and so you'd have to buy and modify this light a bit in order to make is weather-proof.
Other:
Try using a 14500 battery. Ever since i changed to 14500 from AA The light is much brighter and it works really well now.
Bottomline:
The sliding mechanism could be an issue but since it so small and cool-looking i think i can forgive it.
