+ Very well finished, adjustment of the different pieces seems to be very good + Powerful and even beam + Compact size, useful clip
- Tailcap switch is not very easy to reach with the thumb, it's a bit far in the tube - When off, the switch rattles a bit - Compared to AAA model like the Akoray K106 it's a bit large and long to carry in my inner suit pocket, but it's still low profile enough
Beam is quite pleasant, floody and even, not too blueish.
Apart for the switch, the general finish of this flashlight is quite impressive for this price. Sure it's still more expensive than a lot of other models on DX, but it's still a very interesting offer which can compare to well-known and pricier brands. Mine really uses a XP-G emitter, as advertised on the page.
