Pros: I love this light! It's compact, easy to use, and can even fit neatly in my pocket if I needed it in a pinch while on my night flights. And as a gun nut, I trust the name of S&W too! I especially like the two button/two light feature. The red light is certainly not as bright as the white, but at night you won't want it too bright anyways. However, there are two optional levels of the red to suit your own needs. As an added note to the batteries, it came with a spare set that fit neatly into the canvas case. Fits my motto of "always carry a spare." Cons: One minor issue to note, but not really a complaint... the batteries that came within the unit were DOA and I found out why... and this would be a minor design flaw with how easy the buttons are to depress. Evidently one of the buttons was accidently pushed sometime during the transit and I discovered how it happened shortly after I replaced them and later, noticed the light on while it was in its case. Workable though, but beware of the possibility. If someone was to see all of the new LED flashlights I've owned since they first came out, you'd think I owned stock in the LED business. Truth is, I could never find one that was truly bright enough, until now! I've had a standard bulb flashlight with a red/white lens configuration for years, and it doesn't (sorry for this) hold a candle to this new one! Great light for any of your flying needs!

Pros: This flashlight is very sturdy and well built! I would expect nothing less from such a company. It is very light in weight as it is built from aluminum. The handle is knurled and provides good grip. The light consists of 10 white LED's on the outer ring controlled by a single push switch. A second switch controls red LED's. The first push illuminates 1 red LED and the second push illuminates 3. The screw on caps for the battery compartment and light head are sealed with gaskets and fit very snugly. It comes in a heavy duty nylon case with sturdy metal snap. The case includes a small compartment for the 3 AAA batteries that come with the light. Cons: A little longer than I thought. I was hoping it would fit into the widest spot on my kneeboard. I feel I got my moneys worth!!! Great product and will not take up much room in your flight bag. Perfect for preflight (and bright enough) and not too big for inflight use. Very hard to rate reliability but with the construction I see I will give it a 5. I would consider it more of a preflight light than a cockpit light but it will not be cumbersome during flight and with the different settings of red it will have brightness options.

Pros: Great product, it is small enough to fit in your pocket, but big enough not to loose. I like the 2 switches which makes it easy to use with no light at all. Cons: It is hard to tell the difference between low red and bright red, but that matters very very little. The white light could be a little bit brighter, but it is still very usable. The only real con is that there is no strap. It is a great product, and I have as of yet found any other dual color flashlight as good as this one.

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.
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.
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
