This style is a little dated compared with some these days, but it remains an exceptional light when that’s all you want it to be. The output is impressive and, although some prefer a rechargeable light compared to one that works from batteries, if ever you are caught short and it runs out, at least you can usually get your hands on some batteries. There isn’t very likely to be a plug socket in your swim!
The upright style lends itself to being sat on a bivvy table or suchlike, while there is an easy to use carbiner-style hanging loop.
Three white-light modes include bright, dim and flashing, which you’ll see my thoughts on elsewhere on this page!
The single-button operation is easy and the button itself sits on the front of the unit so is easy to locate. This is further aided by the green LED that makes it easy to locate the light during the hours of darkness. In all, this is exactly what it says it is, a bivvy light, and as such it does a good job of being so.
