First one of these lasted 12 years of dropping it out of airplanes. Finally got another one, worth every penny.

Solid and reliable
Had the torch for a month now. It fulfills all the needs I had for it. My only suggestion would be a rubber area on the handle to make it easier on my teeth.

I am delighted to have and to use this light. It took some time before it arrived but it was worth waiting for it. Easy to use, also in helicopters.

Good light for serious pilots. This is my second one. I bought my first one several years ago and gave to a student who loves it. I had to have another one.

Excellent two-switch flashlight
This is a great Aviation flashlight. I love the ease of selecting either the Red light with its own dedicated switch or the very bright white light using that switch. Other flashlights have one switch that you cycle through - but not this one. They’ve thought of everything!

Flashlight Review
So far no regrets, quality control seems high. Just purchased so reliability cannot be fully addressed.

Happy with the purchase.

Average.
It’s pretty good. Heafty enough aluminum construction. Buttons don’t instill much faith. Not terribly bright. Rather large and heavy for the mediocre output. There are better lights for the price.

how many lumens does it has?
A shopper on Jan 4, 2017
Lumens?
A shopper on Mar 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Excellent product. The variable light selection make the flashlight very versatile. I have it with me every time I fly.
does this flashlight have any way to attach a tether?
pilgrim paul on Nov 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The S&W Captain's flashlight does indeed have two small holes on a flange of the end cap, for attaching some sort of lanyard or tether. You cannot see the holes in the photos; they measure around 2mm x 4mm each (oblong), spaced about 7 mm apart center to center.
I am training as a First Officer, not a Captain. Can I use this flashlight?
A shopper on Nov 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We'll allow it. ;)
what does it weigh?
A shopper on Nov 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Just the flashlight itself, with 3 batteries installed, weighs 7 oz. The flashlight in its case, with 3 spare batteries in the pouch, weighs 9.5 oz. total.
Is this flashlight 2-D cell?
A shopper on Feb 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This flashlight operates on three AAA batteries
Is it water proof?
Camilo R on Sep 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The battery cap is gasketed and the switches have rubber boots, so the flashlight is certainly water-resistant. The front lens is made of a relatively thin plastic, so I do not believe that the light is intended for use underwater, or as a dive light!

How is this different than the S&W Galaxy 13?
A shopper on Nov 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The main difference is that it features a 1 red LED mode. We find the 3 red LEDs to be too bright in the cockpit most of the time, so this lets you select 1 or 3.
what is the warranty ?
Jay b on Nov 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Lifetime.
