Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week
+The light looks really nice, the size is just perfect and feels good in hand.
+Really nice light with plenty of useful spill.
+The threads came lubed.
+Glass lens should survive the inside of my pocket without scratches.
+XP-G R5 LED
+Metal clicky. (read cons)
+Solid clip. (read cons)
-As others have mentioned the clicky rattles, makes the construction feel less nice, although I still like it better than a rubber one. Don't know about water resistance though.
-Clip attached so strong that its not very removable, at least not without scratching the light.
-Modes are useless (medium too strong, strobe too slow), whilst in medium the driver produces a high frequency sound. Would be way better in 1 mode.
It will act as my EDC light, the light coming from this is very useful.
Considering the cons, the price should be lower, there are cheaper R5 alternatives to to buy without some of these problems. The Trustfire R5-A3 (sku.39062) and UniqueFire G10 (only 14 dollars, sku.55244) come to mind. Although if one wants a really good looking light this is still a decent buy.
