    This lantern is incredibly compact, extremely easy to use, and unbelievably feature-packed. It seemed too good to be true, yet it was true.

    Very sadly, Fenix discontinued it.

    There is some consolation that Fenix knows how to make excellent small lanterns, so perhaps soon they’ll build a lantern even more spectacular than the CL09.

    Beware of hanging from wire hanger, mine became detached and I lost the light overboard. Otherwise a great little light.

    This is a great light. The size and weight, along with the range of brightness settings, covers all my needs. Just be sure to keep track of it. It is easy to loose…this is my second one. I expect to find my first one some day, but I could not be without this light in my kit.
