Potted electronics make the difference
I bought this without really knowing very much about it because I wanted a high quality, US made flashlight and my first choice, Surefire, could not be shipped to Hong Kong. Well sometimes the gods smile on you. This torch is amazing. You can't really judge from the pictures just how good this feels in the hand and the bombproof quality that this torch exhibits. It feels like like a little tank. It's small enough for everyday carry and stunningly bright. Ignore comparisons that suggest it is poor value because a cheaper torch has better technical specifications and costs less. For a single cell torch this is incredibly bright and it has a nicely toned even beam with more than enough reach for any real world application. More importantly it will work every single time, for a very long time. The once thing that the product description fails to mention is that this torch has potted electronics. What does that mean? It means the internal electronics are permanently sealed in solid epoxy. Nothing can break and they are entirely impervious to water, dust and shock. There is a reason these torches survive a 300ft drop from a helicopter onto concrete. If you can afford it, this is the one to get. I just bought another one for my wife.

Best light ever
This is the best flashlight I've ever had. Words like tank and overbuilt don't do it justice. I have been a Surefire fan for about 12 years and have no complaints about their products. Was shopping around and saw some videos about Elzetta and wanted to check it out. It is incredibly solid but doesn't weigh much but it isn't a tiny light. Picture a roll of quarters cut in half and thats close to this lights proportions. I have come to the point that I like simple. Push the button in till it clicks and ~300 lumens (honestly seems brighter), turn it a quarter turn and its output drops to low mode (think around 15 lumen). No need to push a button 5 + times or more, no more programming modes I'll never use. I used to go for the highest lumen lights but 300 is bright enough to do anything and still give good battery life. Elzetta also has interchangeable parts so its easy swap parts which is way underrated. Simple and tough. Its on the pricey side and probably larger than most people want but the pluses outweigh size/price and to me and its one of the best EDC/tactical pieces of gear I have ever used.
