    Pros

    Durable, won't break, very easy to use! Love the 'holster' it comes with! Attached perfectly to my flight bag!!

    Cons

    I wish the white lights were a little brighter. I was expecting more from the white light side of it

    General Comments

    I would definitely recommend this light for pilots! Great product for the cost I would definitely buy it again!

    Great Light
    Pros

    The flashlight is very durable, well constructed and easy to use. The dual switches guarantee that you make the correct selection in the dark (not selecting white while intending on Red and ruining your night vision) The White LEDs are bright and perfect for the walk-around pre-flight. The two brightness Reds provide the correct amount of light for in Cockpit chart reading.

    Cons

    The flashlight is too large to keep in a pocket and an alternate, easy to reach and find in the dark location must be found in the cockpit.

    General Comments

    Would recommend to any pilot for night flights.

    Solid, mid-size light, well-designed
    Pros

    Sturdy. Mid-size. Separate buttons for red and white lights. It's a bit larger than I expected, but this is a 'pro.' This is not a 'mini' flashlight you might expect of a AAA batteries model.

    Cons

    none

    General Comments

    I have only used the light a couple of times now, so I cannot speak to its durability or battery life. The light production is very good for its size. I have other, smaller flashlights like a Fenix that are more expensive than the Smith & Wesson. Comparatively, I think this one is well-priced. My only caution is this: do not expect this to be an ultra-lightweight flashlight for your flight bag. You will feel its weight. However, this is part of the price for having a good, solid product.

    Good, durable product
    Pros

    Durable construction. The dual white/red buttons really help stop inadvertent blinding in the cockpit. The light is more of a flood than spot, but this is useful when viewing charts and maps.

    Cons

    A little pricey, but worth it.

    While this is not the least expensive flashlight by a long shot, you do get what you pay for.

    This flash light reflects the brand legacy of Smith & Wesson: quality, durable and an excellent value.

    I absolutely love this flashlight.

    Great Flaslight!
    Pros

    Lightweight flashlight that packs a punch. Great to have both white and red lighting.

    Cons

    None.

    General Comments

    I am a professional airline pilot and I bought this flashlight as a replacement to several inexpensive flashlights that I was using. I was looking for a light it was bright enough to use on my pre and post flight duties around the jet but also provided extra red lighting for use on the flight deck. This flashlight has been the perfect solution. I would highly recommend this flashlight to any serious pilot to meet their lighting needs.

    Prone to Rusting
    Pros

    When I first bought it, it worked fine until I needed it on a dark night.

    Cons

    Three years after purchasing, there is significant rust in the tube, and it is so extensive, it's not possible to clean it. It has never been around water, so not sure what has happened.

    Not a reliable product.

    General Comments

    Too bad the guarantee doesn't extend past one year. This flashlight will easily outlast the one year guarantee.
