Bought this based on the number of very positive reviews I have read and can say without any hesitation that so far it meets the hype. The torch is very bright and easily adjustable from a pinpoint beam of light to a larger area although I must admit the level of illumination is not very bright when covering a larger area but it is still pretty good. Good design putting the button at the top of the torch to avoid it accidentally being turned off. A light press on the button changes the beam from bright to dim and press again for the torch light to flash so very handy if you need to attract attention when necessary. A nice solid feel to the torch and reasonably compact which will fit into a mans jacket pocket.
