Review:

Great overall size for concealed carry (CHL / CCW), especially when your clothing doesn’t allow for a larger (the 2L) flashlight to be carried. A great example of this is when you are wearing business type clothing. It easily fits on a belt or pocket and doesn’t interfere with movement. The lumen output isn’t on the high side that is recommended for concealed carry, but this also accounts for its smaller size. Unfortunately, this is my second 1L that I have to buy, because the first one started having issues with the push button switch shortly after the warranty ended. However, I like the flashlight line so much (including the 2L) that I am going to hope that the second one doesn’t have the same issue. Add to the fact that it is reassembly affordable, especially when compared to its competition.

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

Cons:

  • Due to its smaller size, the frame can be a little difficult to handle under stress. This can be compensated by practice.

Overall Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
