    I was very skeptical, looking for a stocking stuffer for my husband. So glad i got this, there is a lot of light and defense packed into this little flashlight. Made well.

  • Should Be In Every Vehicle

    This item is not only a flashlight but can be used to defend yourself.I first ordered two for each our vehicles.Hubby raved about ours, I ordered more for daughter and granddaughter. My daughter said her husband liked it, so ordered another for him. I also sent my grandson one because he had just got a car. When it arrived, my son thought it was his and put in his car. So I ordered another one. Would I recommend this item, YES.

  • Pretty and practical!

    Love this flashlight! It gives a great sense of security, knowing that there is a bright light source, SOS feature, and flashing signal light options...not to mention the "baton" feature. Lest I forget, it can break an automobile window if that need should arise. Waiting to see how long the batteries last.

  • Great item

    Love it, love it, love it. Great fields of light whether narrow or broad spectrum, bright illumination and great distance a winner in my book. Haven't used the defender function yet but it certainly has good weight to do so.e damage
