First and foremost I want to say this is an incredible little task light and although it's expensive it's worth every penny.

The only reviews that state otherwise were all written by people that have never actually used the HFR. They rate it one star because it's not available to the general public and they just want to whine about it. To those morons I say this, suck it up! How about you put on those big girl panties of yours and stop your bitching. If you want one so badly, put on a uniform.

With that said, you can't go wrong with the HFR. It is, hands down, one of the best task lights I've used. It's compact, versatile, and damned near bulletproof.

It's due to the fact that is has IR capabilities that the public has no need for. If you guys want a helmet light that bad get a surefire.

You sell a money clip with a potentially lethal knife, to the public. You make this flashlight a military item, that the public can not buy. Come-on...a canteen is a military item, but it may be sold to the public. Open this product up to Bicyclists too.

Gerber makes some of the finest knives and tooks that money can buy...and then ensures that you can't buy them by requiring credentials. Come on guys, this is a flashlight, not a switchblade knife. The inability to buy Gerber products is why a bunch of people are switching to SOG.
