i have only had this flashlight a few days so i dont know how durable it will be. but it is EXTREMELY bright. it puts off an intense white beam of light and illuminates the area around the beam of light well enough to see what is there several hundred feet away. if you want a bright white light but dont want to pay hundreds of dollars, this is the flashlight you want.if this thing is durable it is well worth the moneythis will make a really good flashlight for camping you will see what is walking around in the brush outside the campsite when you turn this on.caution you may wake everyone up in the campground (lol)my 1st thought when i turn this on was, WoW!!! i got to get another one of these.
