I have been using this light for over six years and one of the two bulbs finally went. I am not always kind to my gear and I've put this light through some tough use from shallow freshwater bashing about in caves and creeks to saltwater dives to 140 feet+. It's small size is great for spearfishing on wrecks in part because I can drop it and let it hang from my wrist by its short lanyard. Provides good quality light and the trigger lock to prevent accidentally turning it on is a great feature.
My only issues with this light are: 1. that it will only take Duricell batteries, something about how different brands of batteries are shaped and the contact plate in the light itself that does not allow contact with batteries like Energizer. and 2. it does go through batteries (it takes 4 C cell) faster than I'd like, not a real problem, just have an extra set in your dive bag.
