Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I really like this flashlight except for one thing: the plastic it's made from is not durable. and prone to cracks. All the good things that people have said about this flashlight in reviews are true: * The flashlight is is very bright and the light is spread about the right amount for it not being a focusing flashlight. * The batteries last a LONG time. * The clip is strong and makes it convenient to attach to a small branch, the inside of a tent, etc. A very useful feature.
The problem is the plastic that was used to make the flashlight is not at all durable and is literally falling apart. In the picture, you can notice numerous cracks in the plastic and I have wrapped one end of the flashlight with nylon thread and put some epoxy on it to try and reinforce the body. You can also notice cracks at the other end of the flashlight. I may just end up wrapping the whole flashlight body with the nylon thread and covering it in epoxy.
This was the main flashlight I used for a 3-week Everest Base Camp trek. I ended up using this rather than the Black Diamond Icon headlamp which was so heavy I ended up leaving it home and taking this little gem. The Black Diamond Icon Headlamp was brighter, sturdier, had several modes, fit much more sturdily on your head, but I was over my 15 kilogram limit and had to go light.
Almost immediately, in my pocket, one of the clips broke that holds the end cap of the battery case on this Clipmate flashlight. It's under a lot of stress from the stiff springs in line with the batteries, and the thin plastic is no match for that much force. Fortunately, I had duct tape with me (wrapped around a freeby pseudo-credit card), and I was able to tape on the cap effectively, though the result was rather ugly. After another month or so, the clip broke while it...
The Streamlight is a versatile clip-on light. The included headband turns it into a headlamp. The clip locks in very securely to the another plastic piece on the headband. Once the light is attached to the headband, it is virtually impossible to dislodge it without releasing the clip. The headband is adjustable for a secure and comfortable fit.
There are complaints that the light may slip off a baseball cap. Well, if you thrash your cap around vigorously enough, the clip WILL slip off. Admittedly, the clip does feel a little dinky, but I think it is reasonably strong and should remain quite securely attached to the cap under normal circumstances. Having said that, I do think Streamlight CAN improve on the clip with a larger gripping surface to provide better grip.
As for brightness, other than saying the light is relatively bright, there is not much else to say. It is definitely not bright enough to be used as a self-defense light (like one that...
