Looks and appears to be of high quality. Difficult to rate honestly until it's been used a few times however.

Great All-in-One Flashlight
I prefer a white flashlight for outside the cockpit use at night for preflights, oil and fuel sampling. Inside the cockpit; the red light provides ample illumination while also protecting critical night vision. This is a well-made all-in-one professional tool.

Great anywhere
Perfect for the ramp, cockpit, car, and anyplace else where you don't want night vision impaired. I use mine in an observatory. The carrying case is great and provides a place for spare batteries.

Great Purchase for My Flightbag
Well constructed flashlight with great illumination on all settings. I haven’t tested it yet on an actual night flight, but I’m confident it will perform up to expectations when I get the opportunity.

Meh
It’s a good light overall but it feels kinda cheap compared to other light. It’s no mag light but it’s somewhat bright and light weight

Good solid flashlight
The product was as I expected. A little large but easy to handle in the cockpit. I would recommend it.

Good cockpit flashlight!
Good piece of equipment for the cockpit. Just check the batteries on a regular basis and don't let them corrode like I did. If that happens its almost impossible to get the battery case out. Other wise, great product.

how many lumens does it has?
A shopper on Jan 4, 2017
Lumens?
A shopper on Mar 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not sure of the lumens, but the white is bright enough for pitch black preflight while the dual red modes work well for cockpit environments.
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. ;)
Could you pls provide a photo of the holster? I am replacing a small Mag light in the flight deck and need to make sure it will fit/attach in a similar way
Lisa L on Dec 10, 2018
what is the warranty ?
Jay b on Nov 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Lifetime.
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.
Sufficient for night walk around of large commercial jet?
Low W on Jul 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it would be sufficient for your purpose.
What are the dimensions of the flashlight with thickness of the handle?
A shopper on Dec 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The flashlight is 6 1/2" long and approximately 1" in diameter.
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.
