Pros:
I use this primarily for Geocaching and I find this to be a VERY bright and useful torch. Very much brighter than my friends torches while out in the field and I LOVE the zoom capability! Very handy.
The notches on the Button end make it funky and the button grip is also a good feature.
The wrist lanyard is perfect and I use it all the time.
Cons:
Even when I applied WD40, the thread gets majorly stuck on the zoom when zoomed into the smallest zoom. NOT HAPPY JAN!
I often have to get my multigrip out and wrench it open which makes marks on the exterior.
Really getting quite annoyed about it.
It seems the batteries don't last terribly long but I guess it takes a lot of power for such incredible brightness!
Other:
I guess it shines to about 100-150m away which is great for such a small torch!
Great value for money I say, might upgrade a bit down the track but for now, this neat little funky compact torch is perfectly sufficient!
Bottomline:
Well worth the money!
Might need some serious lube for the thread though.
