Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John32563 Best Pocket Flashlite
I've tried all the rest and nothing compares to the Mag-Lite XL-50. It's small enough to fit in your pocket, yet more powerful than my larger 3D cell Mag-Lite. Three on modes: High, Low and Strobe. High is almost sometimes too high, but since when has that been a problem? Low is very good and saves power. Strobe for when you need it. Two wishes: I wish it came with a case that I could clip on my belt. There's probably one available. And I wish it had provisions for a wrist lanyard. Excellent quality. Excellent value. Don't waste your time or money on the others. Makes a great gift, too. Comes in Black, Blue and Red.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mike I want to love it , but....
this little flashlight is VERY bright, BUT I have to give it a low rating only because ive had the switch go bad on two different flashlights after dropping the light from VERY LOW heights. We're talking like 1-2 feet drops. So it seems like whatever switch they are using is very fragile. or maybe its something else inside the flashlight that is breaking, i dont know.
Aside from that, This little flashlight is amazingly bright. i just wish it was more durable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer very nice flashlight
I think the flashlight is a good product. Very bright and it totally lights up my shed which is about 150 feet away. The construction is solid and feels like a quality product. The push button for high/low/strobe is very nice and easy to use. The only negative I see is that the flashlight says you can focus the beam for flood vs spot but this feature is totally useless as other reviews have also mentioned. Otherwise it's still a handy little flashlight that I would buy again. If the focus option worked as advertised I would have given it 5 stars.

At less than half the cost of the tactical flashlight I used on patrol, the XL50 is similar in function which I find useful. I carry it alongside my Leatherman multi-tool. At only $35 bucks, I would rather lose this one than my tactical light. And, wow, the high beam? Awesome for its size. It does eat up batteries but I can live with that. Cost effective, compact, tough and very bright main beam – get one.

I bought this flashlight to keep on my motorcycle for use at night but I don't think I want to limit it to only that use. This flashlight is extremely bright and very compact. I can't belive you can get the amount of light out of something so small. I'll have to buy another one or two to use in the car and in the house. It's a little pricey but what a punch it has. AMAZING!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Juan super bright and nice & compact
Really great flashlight. I take this flashllifght jogging with me everytime. Its small enough to fit right it the palm of my hand and bright enough to light up a 100 feet in front of me. I highly recommend this flashlight to anyone. The LED bulbs in this are very well built. This flashlight jas been dropped from 15+ feet and not a scratch. I was shocked to not find it in a 100 pieces. MADE IN THE USA!!!

As a bouncer in a low lit night club, this came in very handy. With the high setting I can light up a whole area to see whats going on, and with the low setting I could watch where I was going or look for empty bottles without blinding people. The strobe also comes in handy to signal to other bouncers that I could use a hand. It's also small enough to slip into my pocket quickly for when I need both of my hands.
