  • Summary: 1) Purchased on sale at REI in 2011. 2) Purchased due to high ratings in a magazine. 3) Only used for camping, backpacking and in the tent, or when answering the call of nature. It is more than adequate for those purposes. 4) I can't speculate on its use for other types of activities.

Can turn on Red light without cycling through all settings., Relatively lightweight considering i...
