Rated 5 out of 5 by Earnhardt3fan One of the best flashlights ever
I got this flashlight to replace a "crank" style light that had limited battery life and an ever dimming light. I was totally surprised at the bright even light you get with this device - and on only 3 small easily replaceable batteries. The fact that it seals up to prevent water from entering is even better. The switch easily and securely switches between the brightest light to two dimmer options with increased battery life is great too. the only downside I saw was that while it came with a hole for a lanyard, no lanyard was included. had to scrounge around to find a suitable one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FLPEACHES DEFINITELY BUY AGAIN!
I was thinking of getting these for stocking stuffers for the whole family but decided that I was the one that really wanted it and so got it just for my own, the Moms stocking. Later find out that others in the family would like one too so I will reorder this item. Very bright and I have found several items I was looking for because it was so nice and bright. Thanks LL Bean.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JoeGutts All it claims to be
This flashlight is all that it claims to be. My problem with it is, It shines very bright but not very far. I will be my emergency light for my kayak adventures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Authentic So far so good for this dog walker
I originally purchased the Trailblazer model, but that did not work out for me. I returned two of those in exchange for two of these.
I keep mine in my bag. It is particularly useful now that the days are getting shorter. I also use it when I am out for short after dark walks with the dogs. My dogs wear lights on their collars as well, which helps them to be noticed.
This flashlight, as others have stated, creates a large perfect circle of light similar to a full moon--hence the name;-). It gives off a fair amount of light to illuminate your path so you do not fall into an unseen manhole, or trip over some debris. All good.
What I especially like is the beam it creates really is strong for others, in particular drivers, enabling them to see you walking. When cars are coming from behind, I turn the light to the back so that the drivers can see that there is something up ahead. Which brings me to my next point. I would like to see this same light with an added feature of a flashing red light at the opposite end. I think it would add to the safety factor.
I also find this useful, if I have to get out of bed in the dark at night. I sleep in a pitch black room, without a nightlight. This flashlight is kept by my bedside.
I love the compact design, which is a good fit in not only my delicate feminine hands but in a long fingered male hand as well.
Buy his item. It is practical and useful, particularly if you are a dog walker. The light weight adds to the comfort factor, thus it can be carried for long periods of time without feeling burdensome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nikdangr Personal spotlight
The Moonbeam paints a perfect circle of white light, consistent from edge to edge. The medium setting provides more useful light on my evening walks than my traditional two D cell flashlight with an incandescent bulb. On high setting it's like having a mini-version of a stage spotlight. I can't imagine lugging around my heavy 6 volt flashlight ever again. Overall construction seems very solid. In the long run, I'll be watching to see how the switch holds up - a weak spot in the last small (but dissimilar) flashlight I purchased from LLBean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Goodelli Bright light
I bought one for walking my dog at night. We have a lot of skunks in the neighborhood, and I really didn't want to stumble upon one while out in the dark. The light is perfect and the button operation is quick and easy to turn on.
I liked it so much I bought a second one to keep in my bag that I carry when walking back and forth to work.....no more forgetting it now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Oakley13 Best flashlight ever
I am always looking for a bright flashlight for walking at night or looking in dark spaces in closets or basement. This flashlight has the brightest beam of any flashlights I have ever owned. It lights up my entire backyard. It's even better than a porch light! I would give it 10 stars if I could. I plan to buy more for gifts for family and friends. I wish they would give a discount for multiple purchases of the same item.
