Review:

Great size for concealed carry (CHL / CCW) flashlight. It can be a bit bulky depending on your clothing, but the lumens punch you get from the size makes it worth it. The lumen output is on the high side that is recommended for concealed carry, but not so over barring that it requires “extra” training, although low light training is always recommended if you plan to use this for CHL or CCW carry. The fact that it is reassembly affordable, especially when compared to its competition, and good lumens output, with several good features, it makes a great personal protection and CHL / CCW carry flashlight. This should be in your everyday carry items list!

 

Pros:

  • Small and concealable, but large enough to still handle easily
  • Well priced compared to the competitors
  • Easy to operate with one hand (thumb operated)
  • Multiple modes, including high, strobe, and low outputs
  • Bright enough for personal protection and CHL / CCW carry

Cons:

  • Doesn’t have the bigger teeth around the lens like its competitors which can be used to force an attacker to let go of what they are holding onto.
  • Can be a bit bulky in length when trying to carry on-person.

Overall Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
