Cracking light for a great price. About £100 elsewhere and the cheapest I've seen it ever. This is not a basic urban commuter light which allows you to be seen rather than to see in the dark. You need this standard of light on unlit roads or if you fancy night time MTB. You can of course use it for purely urban cycling if you wish - its not overkill, but you will get the full benefit on unlit roads or paths.
Light and Motion are a great brand and I believe started out making lights for scuba diving so they know how to make something properly waterproof.
Also before anyone comments on cheap Ebay imports with staggering lumen outputs for less money please note that L&M measure the actual output on the finished model for their output figures rather than stating the theoretical (see the L&M website or google it if that doesn't make sense to you)

i want to vote hot, and then i really want to buy one and try it out, but....
maybe it's because it just looks like any other small LED torch light thing, a large part of my brain is screaming "why ?!? why is that 4 or 5 times as expensive as a good quality torch ??!?"

guess I'll never know, because the missus would forcibly remove my gentleman sausage if i spent that kind of money on a bike light...

heat anyway, does look cheapest out there

the light is the same cost as my cycle!!!
OMG!!!
is this used in mountain racing and by pros???
havent voted as i dont know the value of this item

Voted cold as it's got such poor light output. 150 lumens max output and a separate battery pack is poor. For an extra 15 quid you could get the Lezyne Super Drive XL which has 500 lumens and no extra battery pack needed. You can also get spare batteries for it that aren't much bigger than an AA and you can also helmet mount it if you want.

It's more for completely unlit roads or night-time mountain biking, you'd actually need more than your usual lights (I'm not saying this fulfills that role well though)

Seems expensive for Ni-Mh. On the plus side it'll be safer than lion technology.

Don't know about the quality and light emitted from the posts so far but I do a bit of night riding and bought this after it was recommended by a friend. Have to say it is superb, and far better that 'some' of the lights used by others which cost a lot more than £100. Up to you guys but I can personally recommend these:
