I love the two way clip, I don't wear a hat very often but I think its a simple and handy feature to have available. I also really like the simplicity of the light, I dislike when lights try to add in five different modes and you're constantly cycling through to just get the brightest setting. I like one or two settings max. This flashlight has also held up pretty well, it hasn't been dropped very often because the clip is rather secure but when it has its just shrugged it off.


My only real complaint is that this light has a focus feature, this obviously isn't unique but I dislike it. However, to be honest, I am trying to get more accustomed to these features because I have several lights with it.

General Thoughts:

Frankly, there isn't much else to say, I think that the price is a little bit expensive for what it is but not that far out of the range. Despite not having many complaints I don't really carry this light as often just because it isn't my brightest and its towards the back of my collection. I plan on reorganizing things so that might change soon.
