Summary: This light is very good when a flood light situation is called for. It lights up a wide area for good viewing. Don't buy this type of flashlight thinking it will also work as a spot light. For what it was designed, I would reccomend it.
Summary: I love Streamlights, their deserved reputation almost puts them up with Surefire for quality,reliability, and warranty, at a fraction of the cost.My 3C pro-polymer is my bedside light, and i got one for my mom,who loves it,also.It's much more a bright,wide-spill, indoor,checking that bump-in-the-night, hurricane/survival kind of light that an outdoor thrower.It's not going to shine across the yard,across the street,and way into the woods, but it isn't designed for that,...
Summary: This light is used at work around hazardous areas. Mostly in acidic situations (sulfuric/nitric type acid). So far it's holding up very well. Since we're usually gloved up good, an easy to hold light with a definate, easy to use switch is a must. As it stands right now, if we need more lights, this one is at the top of the list.
Pros: large enough to use with gloves on, easy on/off switch
Summary: Excellent emergency evacuation light for our office, located in multi-story building. If the power fails (perhaps because of a fire) the building's staircase has emergency lighting, powered by generators. But, if they also fail for some reason, the stairway would be dark. Our emergency evacuation plan now requires that a flashlight be carried, just in case, and a Streamlight 3C Propolymer LED is kept at hand for that purpose.
Summary: I've always had good quality with Streamlight products. The 3C Propolymer LED Flashlight is well-built and should take lots of abuse without breaking. The light output is very diffuse, however, and doesn't carry as far as I would have expected. Perhaps I've been spoiled by Streamlight's TL-3.
