A simple, bright and waterproof torch

A superb torch as you’d expect from Silva. It’s very bright with 140 lumen, and has a good maximum burn time. It’s also simple to use, just toggle through bright light, lower light and flashing light; hold down for a red light. It’s waterproof to (IPX7).

Its ‘Intelligent Light’ system means it has a flood and spot combined and works really well.

Small niggle is the fiddly battery case, the lid of which isn’t attached and I kept dropping it. Other than that easily one of the best here.
