Cygo-Lite / Mitycross

I have been running this lamp for over a month now & thought I might post my opinion on this lamp. I went out to purchase a quality lamp & found a good selection to choose from. I am fortunate that my LBS took the time to break out a number of lamps and show me the difference in a dark room in the shop. After pondering what unit I wanted for a week or so I selected the Mitycross at a price of $219 + tax. The lamp is very small but has 350 lumes with a total of 6 light modes, 3 flashing and 3 brightness. 1 of the flashing modes is SOS. I run a rapid flash during daylight & have great response from auto traffic. I am clearly noticed and traffic has responded very politely. 350 lumes is very bright at night & more than necessary. The lamp moves very easy from the bar to the helmet position for doing road side repairs. It comes with a 30 inch extension cord so you can drop the battery in your pocket to be portable. Overall I love this lamp for the money, though not cheep it is also not at the top of the scale either. I would recommend it to anyone night commuting. I have attached a link rather than post the details. This is not an endorsement, just my personal opinion as requested by several members.
