    To me, it fits in with the higher-end Chinese but I am not the master of categorization...this wouldn't be a brand you would find at an LBS which was what I was going after here.

    Just bought one of the chinese owl style lights (dual X2 cree and whatnot) and although there's plenty of candle power, I don't feel safe enough to use on a mountain bike. Used first on the road bike without problem but those rubber bands, at least for me, seem to be a no no on the trail. Niterider FTW

    not sure where my flashlights fit under those categories. In terms of output, they are comparable to high end lights but they're not brand names and def not Home Depot lights...

    Either a quality chinese torch if I don't need much light and simple, or DIY
