This is the most solid-feeling torch here, mainly because the casing is made from aluminium.

The battery pack is on the rear, but that’s not really a problem. It has a good bright light, which has a beam that can be focussed by simply turning the torch head. It’s a simple solution. The main switch is a little small, but OK with gloves.

There are two levels of light. It doesn’t have the longest life, but it’s an excellent torch.
