Gift: No

Pros: Long battery life, Bright, Durable

Cons: Heavy, No Beam Adjustment

Best Uses: Hiking, Day trip, Backpacking, Car Camping

Describe Yourself: Casual/ Recreational

I picked up one that looks just like it but its got CREE technology (Cree L.E.D.) bulb. It is easily 3-4 times brighter than the normal mini mag flashlight. It is similar in weight but is way way brighter. I end up throwing it into my pack as a backup to my Petzl Tikka and find myself using it more. It’s great for peaking into rock crevices and caves and I take it every morning and night on walks with the dogs. It’s a cool little light and I’m sure it will be around for many years.
