+ Well lubricated threads, o-ring
+ The modes are well spaced (35lm, 150lm, 550lm, 1500lm, 3500lm)

+ HUGE size, huge head, huge battery, I really like:)

Cons

- nothing

Other comment

- Fenix use BAK C18650CC (2600mAh) cells in battery pack. This is a good battery, the performance is very similar than Sanyo UR18650FM, but I think a 6*18650 battery holder (optional accessory) would be very good for own batteries.
