Looks like plus shipping ($7) and sales tax for CA. So $40 is really more like $53.

Sidekick is sure a weird light. Wonder how durable it actually is.

Sure is, looks like it was made to be pocket friendly. Nvm read the description and it says it's made for keychains. Lol

The thumbs down come from all the people who ordered on BF. The way the situation unfolded left everyone salty (including myself). They refuse to respond to our questions/comments and pulled a bait and switch. Most of us would even be fine with an apology and a code for free shipping. From my current experience, I wouldn't trust the warranty for anything. Just my 2 cents.

I was also one of those that ordered, but you cant expect them to actually ship out 6 lights for the price of one? I was hoping, but not expecting.

As far as their warranty, they have been superb. 2 day shipping for warranty replacement. All they wanted was model number and address. This is why I ONLY buy Surefire.

Sorry you haven't had a similar experience.

That is good that they stand behind the warranty. Unfortunately I will not be trying out the lights from them. My order wasn't 6 for 1 or I wouldn't be surprised. It's more of the principle at this point for me. They also had something similar happen last year as well so it seems to be a norm for them. I really wanted those lights too. I am a flashlight junkie. Sigh.

I normally stick with Sig lights. I have had a few replaced with 0 questions asked.

Thanks for your reply though, makes me feel a little better haha

Really disappointed in Surefire. I was first introduced to them while in the Army and was really happy with their products. After such a bad interaction during the BF sale, and how poorly they handled it - I am done with them. There are other US made light makers out there.
