    High and low output options.

    Fit for hand and for pocket.

    Durability.

    For me run time is important, dead flashlights aren't much use to anyone. Build quality is next, I have a couple of competitor's lights, and both have broken down on me with very little use. Lumens are important, but I think you need to have a flashlight for each situation, I'd sure love to get one of those 5k+ flood lights to light up a field if the need arises.

    Ease of function. For example, if it has a strobe function (and it should) I don't want to have to cycle through other functions to get to strobe.

    1. Runtime is key - also predictability of the runtime
    2. Output/lumens - This is important, but it is tied very closely to Runtime
    3. Appearance is important to me

    Nr 1 By far is Ergonomics. Can you deploy with with one hand? Where are the controls? Are they intuitive? How does it fit in your hand? How heavy is it ? Carrying something heavy on your belt every day for 12 hrs gets old really fast. Same as having a big chunk of metal hanging on the business end of your rifle.
    Nr2. Reliability. I have 2 on me because 1 is none and 2 is 1. I want to be sure that when I pull the thing out it will go every time. Yes —-pun intended ��
    Nr 3. Actual brightness. I don’t care about a nr on a paper… you know the: my lumens are bigger than yours ,war between manufacturers. I want the thing to be bright. Nowadays adjustable brightness and strobe are pretty much standard. If not, I’d rather it to be brighter than dimmer. I can deal with some whitewash from a white wall in a room better than not being able to see the end of a long dark hallway.
    That being said , I checked out your giveaway flashlight and it hits pretty much every want/need for me.

    I need a light to work and be tough, come on strong every time I flick the switch. I used to have a mine safety light that I bought from a sporting goods store. The store owner had a demo light that he would repeatedly throw across the store and turn it on after retrieving it, quick sale for me. I have too many lights that flicker after turning them on and need a good whack to shine bright.

    Durability & Runtime, in that order.
    Appearance not very important;
    A simple On/Off switch works for me.
