I have both. The Boss definitely feels a lot smaller in my pocket, and I really appreciate that. In the hand, only slightly, and I honestly like the grip of the Okluma more. The Boss feels kind of slippery because of the anodizing, but the knurling on the Okluma is perfect.
I've been having fun stripping anodized lights lately. I'm sure something fun could be done to a boss, but $400+. Ouch.
Only if you have the H17f driver in it. Stock driver I don't believe you can program.
So overall what's the verdict, Theodore? Which one gets the vote when you are just to bring one?
Interested to know how do you strip them? Any particular product like paint stripper? PLS don't do it to your Boss LOL!!
I don't know how you guys can walk around or sit with these size lights in your pocket. I love my TinyDC and Boss 70 but I can barely stand a AAA sized light in my pocket. But... I only wear ultra tight designer jeans so that could be the issue.
Haha for now it's the BOSS 35, but that's probably because it has that "newness" factor to it. Time will tell lol
My Okluma is my EDC and I don't baby it, it is scratched up and I don't mind. Gonna take it to the pool later as well. The first scratch is the hardest after that it's in my pocket at all times.
I do plan on buying an HDS down the road for the UI and the bombproof make.
