    No it falls over.

    It does say glass breaker but I do not know if that is a nice way of saying sharp bits to tear someones face off.

    The way I always judge lumens is by comparing them to incadesant bulbs, 60 w roughly gives off 800 lumens and a 100 w gives off 1500 lumens. This is only rough because the bulbs are rated by watts, but I know the EU changed to measuring lightbulbs by lumens so if you want a good idea you can look there.

    I personally wouldn't try it as an actual breaker. I have a Benchmade Houdini lying around somewhere that I've actually used on glass a few times to test and know it works well with a hard steel pin to break the glass. The best thing for use as a glass breaker is something harder than glass, and I believe lights with that feature still build it out of aircraft aluminum. I'm not sure if the hardness is quite enough.

    For anyone looking into a Houdini or similar product, though, wrap your hand in a T Shirt or something before use as the pressure it takes to punch the window with it will take your hand through the glass. I got a pretty nasty cut the first time I tested mine.

    Fenix recently came out with a GREAT light that is excellent for carry in the pocket.

    YouTube - Fenix PD31 LED Flashlight Review

    Advertised at 304 Max OTF Lumens, probably closer to 290 on standard cr123 cells. Still an insane amount of light. One thing I love about Fenix lights are their UI. I honestly think it's the best UI for a carry light in this size category out there. Head fully turned, one click for turbo, soft click for strobe, then back and forth. Very simple. Might be picking one up myself when I get a bigger check.

    Another light I'm really digging is the OLight M20S:

    YouTube - Olight M20S XP-G R5 Tactical LED Flashlight Review

    Looking for a new light right now that can accept an 18650 for my next purchase, hence the higher than usual interest in torches on my part. I really dig the tube that holds the 18650 on the OLight. I also really like the side switch.
