Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MichaelS Good quality, but poor design
This is a good flashlight... as long as you never need to carry it in a pocket or backpack...
With frustrating regularity, I find this flashlight on inside of my bag. My dad tried carrying it around in his pocket while we were on vacation, and several times, I had to point out that his pants were glowing. Sigh.
Who designed this thing?? The buttons are exposed on both sides and not recessed, and do not require much pressure to turn on either the red or regular light. I jury-rigged a piece of tubing to go around it, just now, to hopefully decrease the # of unwanted button presses.
That being said, it does seem to be well made and of good quality. The normal flashlight is very bright, and the red light is great, for when you want to save your night vision. I just wish it was two red LEDs instead of one. (It's a little dim for walking around, hiking).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nathan Great bright, small flashlight
Great small, bright light for the price. I don't know how I will ever use the red light but the white light is A+.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Faire LADIES-- IT'S THE BEST!
This little flashlight is simply THE BEST! Ladies, are you listening?
Finally, a flashlight that is POWERFUL... so much light, so bright... and, if you've got long FINGERNAILS, like I do, those 'on-off' flashlights that you press from the bottom are horrible.
Well, no more. These flashlights have the 'ON-OFF BUTTONS ON THE SIDE... one for bright white light... one for the red, (which absolutely gives enough bright red light to see your way around a darkened bedroom when your loved ones are sleeping).
I can't tell you how wonderful this flashlight is. We went back and BOUGHT 5 MORE! One for each car, one for the bedroom, laundry room, kitchen. The first one we bought is in the living room.
They are small and so lightweight... even ARTHRITIC hands can hold them, and turn them on-and-off, with ease.
BUY THEM WITH CONFIDENCE. You won't be disappointed.
p.s. Get the SILVER-ENCASED ones if you can. The black ones are harder to see in the dark when you need to grab for it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Moose For such a small flashlight this one provides the best light.
This flashlight met all of my needs with good value, weight, size, and durability. Great flashlight, more than expected.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SBG73 Very useful flashlight
This is an excellent flashlight, when used under certain conditions. It not only shines a significant distance straight ahead, but also lights up the area around the user. I keep it on a shelf by the door and use it nearly daily when doing chores before daylight or after dark. Battery life seems good so far. I do not find the red light really useful, but it could be useful in some situations - I would rather have just one button, since it is difficult to distinguish the buttons in the dark. As other reviews note, this flashlight would not be good to pack in luggage - the buttons are easily activated and would quickly drain the batteries. On the other hand, the side buttons make one-handed use much easier than an end button. Summary: Good flashlight with some limitations.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RCM Not combat ready witout it
I owned a coast during my tour un Iraq. I was heartbroken to have lost it after 3 years. I got another one and took it to Afghanistan and it was run over by a hummer but still worked. I've dropped it, wacked it, and finally after 5 years it died and wouldn't work. Through a lot of abuse it worked for me and is a brand I trust. Soo reliable and easy to flip the battery pack around to preserve the life of the batteries.
