Don't Believe the Anti-hype,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Normally, I wouldn't say something as rash as "the negative reviews for this product read like plants from a rival manufacturer," but they simply do. Here's why:
1. The #1 complaint I've read is the inadequate packaging that indicates that the model you receive is refurbished. This is nonsense. Mine arrived in a professionally sealed plastic package, the kind you have to cut open.
2. Ease of use. Unless you are deeply stupid, you won't have the slightest problem operating this flashlight.
3. Not tactical/made of substandard materials. Total BS. It's made of rugged, lightweight aluminum. The first thing I did was jump on it. I'm 6'4" and weigh over 300 lbs. If I can't crush it, you can't either. The serrated edges don't snag on clothing, but they would be very unpleasant to an assailant if you drove it into a tender part of the body.
4. Size. It's fits well in my hand. I can palm a basket ball, so I'd say it's not tool small. It also fits comfortably in the coin pocket of my jeans, so it's not too big. Goldilocks wouldn't be happier.
5. The only substantiated negative comment is that it doesn't have a lanyard/key attachment, which I don't personally mind at all. It's a tactical light, not a key fob after all.
I'm not saying that this flashlight is as good as a $200 model, but if you don't have that kind of cash, it's a great alternative. I've already purchased a second one for my motorcycle.

I can attest to how the unpleasant the serrated edges are. A much larger guy took a swing at me once and a blow to his sternum with the sharp end of the light put him on the ground. Also I slipped off a couple of steps onto my side with this light in my pocket. Had a bruise and some shallow cuts on the site where the flashlight was. Bruise lasted for three weeks.
