Bark'n, this is actually my light of choice as well. Fits almost all situations, battery life is excellent, reasonable price point along with all of the features that you mention above. I've been please with the watertight seals holding up well also. The interface with the flashlight is very intuitive and consistent across the line. The LD20 is the unit I carry with me most of the time, but I also carry the smaller LD2 on occasions where weight is of more importance, or during the day when I need more of a utility light rather than a light that can also be used as a backup SD tool.
