I have an Impact & find it somewhat disappointing. The beam is pretty comparable to the Brinkmann Long-Life light at about twice the price (I have the Brinkmann light also). I'm skeptical if it really fits your needs as the beam is fairly concentrated. If a tight beam suits your needs, get the Brinkmann & pocket the change. It's 90 % as bright on only 2 AA batteries by virtue of its step-up converter. If you need a broader LED beam, consider the PT Attitude...smaller/lighter & runs on AAA batteries. There are other lights out there as good, but none as good at the same price level, IMHO.
