Rated 5 out of 5 by wgadget124 5 Day Moonbeam flashlight
I have bought many flashlights before, but NONE compare to the brightness of this.Highly recommend this light. It will be great for camping trips, as it is very compact.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NedinPA Great little light
The light's beam is very powerful and the added feature of having a glowing handle is great. It's small enough to carry with you anywhere.. My one wish is that it should have a red light feature for darkness use.

this is a great little light for us. we use it mostly for night walks in our neighborhood. small pocket size and brightness are a major plus. and the easy quick change switch for illumination, at the base of the light, is a good idea.

Rated 5 out of 5 by beanbuyergirl awesome!
When I saw this advertised in the catalog I thought it was a great idea to have the handle and button glow! I have fumbled around in my tent and even a few closets looking for the flashlight in the dark. This is a great convenient size and so bright! The multiple brightness options are wonderful. Not sure I will use the SOS function, but it is nice to have it! I have set it on my nightstand and wow is it easy to spot. Thinking of picking up a few for christmas gifts. Well done LL bean!

As others have said, this is a great small (but not too small) flashlight. Super bright, white light. The beam doesn't focus but instead provides even brightness. Nice size & weight.

THIS IS A GREAT FLASHLIGHT THAT PROVIDES AS MUCH LIGHT OR MORE THAN COMPETITIVE PRODUCTS WHICH ARE BOTH LARGER AND HEAVIER THAN THIS IS. WE USE IT EVERY EVENING NOW WHEN WE WALK, AND I HAVE EVEN FOUND IT USEFUL TO FIND TINY EARRINGS WHICH I MISTAKENLY DROPPED ONTO DEEP CARPET!

Aircraft aluminum? Moonbeam technology? No, what drew me to this model flashlight was the fact that it has a button and uses standard easily found batteries. However, it is so much more. First of all, the batteries don't just get dropped into the barrel. They fit into a cylinder / capsule which slides into the barrel securely. The flashlight is small but not petite. It fits quite nicely into a jacket pocket, but will not do in the fausses poches which so often afflict women's clothing. It will, however, go right into your clutch along with your handkerchief and your change purse when you go to the opera. Button is on the end which requires a bit of digital dexterity to get the light properly positioned in your hand once you turn it on, but there is a hole in the rim for a ring. A wrist strap from an office supply store keeps the flashlight safe at hand. The light itself adjusts to three different intensities, plus flashing (programmed to SOS), and wonder of wonders, there are absolutely no shadowy rings in the spot of light; it really is like holding the full moon in your hand. This flashlight is just the thing to have in hand whether you're wending your way back to your car after a night on the town or picking your way through the woods to your sleeping bag after a midnight dip in the lake. I'm very pleased with this product.

This is the most I ever spent on a flashlight, however it seems to fit the bill perfectly. Good solid white light, adjustable at the half click, bright, medium, low and the strobe light. I think it strobes S O S, don't quote me. Its a bit chunky and heavy but its constructed well and seems to be built to last a long time. I got the glow one just to check it out, not so useful for me, but I can see it would have its advantages in certain situations. Have not taken it up north to do a forest test yet but it has a nice wide beam and is very clear, only had it a month so can't speak to it battery life. So far its just another great product, thanks LL

Rated 4 out of 5 by 2manband Good Flashlight, almost Great
Overall it seems to be a very good flashlight. It's very bright for its size, fairly compact and lightweight, and it casts a perfect circle of uniform light. The switch seems pretty heavy duty. And strictly on the basis of lumens per dollar, it's hard to beat.
There are two features that I miss- the ability to focus the beam into a spotlight like you can with other brands of flashlights, and the availability of a red filter make me less attractive to the bugs when I'm fishing or camping.
The medium and low settings are handy for times when you don't want full blast, (like sneaking into your deer stand before dawn.) Also noteworthy but not mentioned in the description - when you engage the flashing mode, it flashes 3 long, 3 short, 3 long......SOS.
Glow in the dark handle is a nice idea, but I'm skeptical that it'll still be glowing at 3AM when I need to stumble out of my tent.
So it's a good general purpose outdoorsy flashlight, but missing a few of the specialized features/accessories that would make it a great one.
