There is better for less
Used one of these when I used to work overnights for private security. It was a neat little light, has an available pouch made just for it, and is nice and bright. It has a rubber encased grip, and is plenty bright; I could shine it across an entire rooftop and still clearly see the beam on a far wall. That, however, is where the plus sides end. It runs VERY hot, and devours batteries like a beast. And they're the extra-special, extra-expensive kind, and it takes two, so everytime you have to reload this light, you're spending $8-10, depending on where you can find your batteries. They also tend to die right in the light, so it will be turned on just fine, but the next time you reach for it, it could be dead, even within a few moments of use. I don't know if the light has a passive vampire charge, but it's very annoying to never really know when it's going to die. As I also mentioned, it gets very hot with sustained use, e.g., anything past 2 or 3 minutes. For the money, you could have a Fenix, or even Coast/LED Lenser, that will run on standard AAs, and go for longer and more dependably.

Nice and bright but I failed to read the battery requirements. Its a special battery and this thing is bright and power hungry.
