    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Bright orange, easy to see. Adds some nice contrast to an all black torch. Relatively thick with nice checkering. Bright orange.
    Cons:

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Light. Has o-ring seal.
    Cons:
    Threads look rough. Doesn't work for my light - but that isn't really the product's fault as it is only marketed for the C3.
