I live out in the country and this flashlight definitely lights up the view when I walk my small dog at night. I performed an intense search for two weeks on the internet prior to purchase. The other positive reviews helped me select this one. I also was impressed with the price in comparison with some of the more expensive tactical lights. Again, very happy! This flashlight is not bulky like some of the previous D battery lights that I have owned. I have no negative remarks to add.
