Compact, powerful beam (for the size), reliable, spare bulb, Focussable beam.
I love my AA mini Mag Lite torch! :-) Living in a rural area, I often have to walk down to the pub at night and brave a dark road on the way home. My Mini Mag Lite has served me well. Its small size makes it easy to cart around the pub and its powerful beam means that I have no problem seeing where I am going on dark footpaths or being seen by drivers.
The torch is also excellent for keeping in a car glove compartment when travelling.
I guess it is is pretty much watertight - the battery compartment has an 'O' ring in the thread. Battery life is good with Duracells and there is a spare bulb inside the battery compartment cover.
The sound construction of the torch (aluminium machined body with a machined grip) makes it one of those gadgets that is really tactile and desirable.
