Simple, little, light flash light. No frills here.

Puts out enough light to go to the bath room or find stuff around the camp or in the tent but don't try finding your way off the mountain with it but you could head down a path with it in a pinch.

Lack of a on off switch means you have to pinch it as long as you want light. The upside of this is that you can never forget to turn it off.

Not affected by cold so you get consistent light even in the dead of winter.

So light that you could clip one on your harness and never even know it was there until you got caught out in the dark trying to figure out which piece of webbing to clip into on decent...

This is a great light to put in your little emergency kit as a backup. But what I use it for the most is a tent lamp. Hang it from the ceiling of your tent and it will light up the interior so you won't have to use up your headlamp batteries. I leave it attached and stuff it with the tent.

Downs: $10.00 seems a little pricey and would be a better bargain at around $5.00.
