I really like this flashlight except for one thing: the plastic it's made from is not durable. and prone to cracks. All the good things that people have said about this flashlight in reviews are true:
* The flashlight is is very bright and the light is spread about the right amount for it not being a focusing flashlight.
* The batteries last a LONG time.
* The clip is strong and makes it convenient to attach to a small branch, the inside of a tent, etc. A very useful feature.
The problem is the plastic that was used to make the flashlight is not at all durable and is literally falling apart. In the picture, you can notice numerous cracks in the plastic and I have wrapped one end of the flashlight with nylon thread and put some epoxy on it to try and reinforce the body. You can also notice cracks at the other end of the flashlight. I may just end up wrapping the whole flashlight body with the nylon thread and covering it in epoxy.
This flashlight has not at all been abused, and though I've had it for four years, it's only been used a total of maybe a dozen times; in fact I've only changed the batteries once. If Streamlight would use a more durable plastic, or maybe even aluminum for the flashlight body, I would give it five stars, as I really like the little light. But as it is, I can't see recommending spending more than twenty dollars on a flashlight that falls apart so quickly and easily.
