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

Pros:
Bright. Lightweight. Well-balanced between the front and back. The elastic head-strap looks poor/weak but is actually quite good.
Cons:
The hinge looks to be very fragile, so be careful when it's not in the locked position. If it breaks, probably JB Weld it.
Other:
Forms somewhat of a Halo pattern, but it doesn't bother me. Good for a flood effect, actually.
Bottomline:
Worth every penny, and it uses an 18650, so it'll last a LONG time. Significantly better than anything that uses a AA or AAA battery. Not as bright as a P7 900 Lumen Emitter... but probably better than a P7 (bang-for-the-buck).
