3 weeks agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesExcellent two-switch flashlightThis 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!December 31, 2017Purchased

3 weeks agoDurability4 / 5Reliability3 / 5Performance3 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value3 / 5Would You Recommend?YesAverage.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.December 30, 2017Purchased

2 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesEffective light sourceI had an older S&W Captain's flashlight and the battery leakage ruined it. This one should be much more rugged and should not have that problem. This flashlight is somewhat smaller and lighter as well.November 2, 2017Purchased
2 months agoDurability3 / 5Reliability1 / 5Performance1 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value1 / 5Not reliableIt uses a cartridge to hold 3 AAA batteries so when the cartridge breaks a spring, like it did on me, it cannot be replaced and you have a useless flashlight.

- Question and Answer
Browse 8 questions Browse 8 questions and 11 answershow many lumens does it has?Lumens?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?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.what does it weigh?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.I am training as a First Officer, not a Captain. Can I use this flashlight?BEST ANSWER: We'll allow it. ;)Is it water proof?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!
-JohnHow is this different than the S&W Galaxy 13?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 ?BEST ANSWER: Lifetime.
