    I have a handful. They are actually some of the best Made in China lights you'll ever find. Worth the asking prices. Not as durable as my SureFires, but very nice overall.

    I've owned three Fenix lights and one of them has been my EDC light for three months. They have all been superb.

    I use the lower end Fenix lights quite a bit and I'm very happy with them.

    My first "premium" flashlight was a Fenix LD20. Cost me $60 shipped. Still works great to this day. Bought an E11 for the keychain and I love this thing. Can't go wrong with Fenix.

    Same here. Got myself as a first "big" flashlight a Fenix LD12, biggest money I"ve ever dropped on a torch and don't regret it so far. Have it nearly one year now and it's still awesome. Can't go wrong IMO. Gifted the rest of the family the e01 for Christmas and other occasions, they all carry it and like it alot (might get one myself as well...)

    Yeah, my first good light, and actually first LED light, was a Fenix L2D Rebel 100. It was bullet proof, and worked flawlessly for 4.5 years(Still works fine now, I just retired it for something brighter), in everything from -60F to 100F, soaked in every automotive chemical and oil known to man, dropped, driven over, soaked and drowned in snow/slush/water, etc... About the only thing I didn't do to it was find out if it is literally bullet proof. ;)

    pd20, e11, eo5 x2, TK41....all good lights. That TK41 is not an EDC light but an unreal thrower for hunting and such. Haven't tried the pd22 but if it is like the pd20, it would be a great EDC light in a small package.

    Fenix makes great lights. Only issues I have with them is that they don't believe in low lows (ie, sub-lumen), and usually have pretty narrow voltage tolerances. Also a little concerned with the long-term durability, and/or field serviceability, of the movement toward electronic switches. Just anecdotal evidence, but I read a disproportionate amount of failure posts with electronic clickies. Also find it strange that some dedicated electronic switch manufacturers refuse to offer industry standard warranties.
