Nitecore SRT9 compact tactical LED flashlight

The Nitecore SRT9 is a compact LED flashlight designed for tactical scenarios in mind. This is from their SRT line-up, where SRT stands for SmartRing Tactical. Nitecore surely had professionals in law enforcement, military and security line of work in their minds when they designed with many of its features.

What seems amiss is the prominent and intimidating bezel (and went for a simple, stainless steel edge) which has come to be a hall mark of the tactical flashlight category. Maybe the developers are sure that with this flashlight you will never have a close encounter with your adversary?
