This flashlight with Laser pointer, Nebo, is a great product. Its hardware is real metal. It will last longer and shine brighter than most through unusual wear and tear and the weather, too. It has an emergency flash including the red laser and the red laser as a stand-alone can be used as a pointer. I first saw the Nebo Brand flashlights in three models and various colors in 2009 at my local Ace Hardware. This model is a replacement for the first device (it looked as good as and function even better on the day I purchased it in 2009) was taken in early 2016. You will not be disappointed. This is an great investment that you will not need to replace unless you in 'vogue' (a color for every fashionable outfit). It is also a good product for the physical disabled (I speak for myself for I am) especially for stroke and epilepsy patients.
