This tough, aluminium-bodied torch is branded 'Hilka' and is just 85mm long and 25mm in diameter.
Its nine LEDs cast a reassuringly bright beam that's focused enough for close-up work, but broad enough to safely light your progress along an unlit path on a dark night. It's certainly far brighter than the (equally well built) Maglite that I've been using for many years.
The torch runs on three AAA batteries, which seem to last a long time: we've got four of these torches altogether, and we haven't had to change any batteries yet.
The switch is a rubberised push-button on the end of the torch body, and has a positive action. Once it's switched on, you can flash the light on and off by pressing gently on the same button. Press harder (click!), and it's switched off. The wrist-strap is actually too small to put your hand through, but it's still useful for hanging the torch on a coat hook, ready for when it's needed.
I've not tested this torch in water, but there's a rubber sealing ring on the aluminium end cap which unscrews for changing batteries, and it certainly seems sufficiently well made to resist water.
If you're after a compact, bright, well engineered and dependable torch at a budget price then you won't go far wrong with this...
