    Picked it up today, great light.
    Very good construction and not as big as i thought, would fit nicely in my winter coat.

    This two-level 1 x AAA light is extremely compact and features a CREE XR-E LED without reflector that illuminates a wide area, ideal for close range work. :cool:

    This light rocks for walking Miss Callie at night in the conservation area behind our house.
    It's the size of a roll of Lifesavers, has three light levels accessible with a reverse clicky, tailstands for lighting up a room, runs a looong time on a single CR-123 primary cell, has a friendly beam pattern, delivers 100 lumens on high when you need it to, doesn't roll, and has an excellent clip.
    The "list price" is eighty bucks. I picked it up from Amazon for $46.80. A friendly price for what has turned out to be a sweet EDC.
    I'm surprised this light doesn't get more love here.

    I'm currently toting the latest iteration of the Fenix LD10 in the included belt holster. Have yet to use the belt clip, but may give it a go soon.

    Recently got a warm tactical Quark 123(2) to supplement my single warm 123 standard. Carry the single in sheath on belt and now with cold weather approaching double 123 in jacket pocket.

    Wish I have some museum lights to share but mine are just lowly work lights.

    Zebralight H501 for hand-free flood for work and Maractac AAA for throw. Yes, this little light can throw, more than the H501 anyway. I chose these for their small size and usage of common batteries.

    Added a Fenix E01 to my keychain and one to my pocket organizer. Great little lights for the money.

    I've had a Novatac 85T (cracked to enable programming via the 250-click sequence) for a few weeks now and I love it. It's been my EDC since it arrived from Lighthound. (It replaced my trusty River Rock 1W AA light I bought from Target that's been rattling around in my pocket for a few years. I still love that light. Never a hiccup.)

    The Novatac started to experience a condition wherein a light touch would audibly and tactily "click", but not activate the light. A slightly firmer press was needed. A swish of alcohol in the tailcap, some clicks, shake out and let dry seemed to take care of the problem.
