The M2R Pro Warrior is the third Olight flashlight I have owned. It is also, in my opinion, the highest quality flashlight I have owned. The problem I have with it is that it is just too darn big for the application I bought it for. In spite of all the online reviews, specs, and YouTube videos saying this or that, you really have to put your hands on one of these things to get the feel for the size and weight. My plan for this flashlight was for every day carry (EDC). That means the light would be in my pants pocket, all day long, with the clip holding it in place. However, I found the M2R to be too "present" in my pocket. It was always reminding you it was there. Putting your hand in your pocket to get something out was tough because the flashlight was always in the way. It made my pants fit wrong. It was too obtrusive. All of that said, I have nothing but praise for the quality of the M2R. It is an awesome flashlight. Bright, durable, well-built; a Cadillac in the Olight lineup. I also have an S2R II (that works great for EDC). The M2R is just slightly better in terms of build quality. The side switch is softer, has a dimple to aid in finding it by feel, and has a better LED than the S2R. This matters to me because I live in a cold climate (-20 F is our low so far this winter) and I find the stiffer rubber on the S2R gets really stiff when it is cold - to the point where it is hard to turn the light on and off. The M2R side switch is far superior to the S2R switch. I also like having the tail switch on the M2R. It can be problematic in turning itself on, but you can disable it by turning the tail cap just a quarter turn. I did this after I walked around the grocery store for half an hour with the flashlight on. A nice man pointed it out to me when I was in the checkout line by saying, "That is a bright flashlight". I looked down and saw the thing was on Turbo mode. After that I disabled the tail switch. All that said, I like having the option of the side or tail switch and I like that Olight saw fit to make it easy to disable the switch, either by accident or design. I don't know, but it works. I really like the brightness, heft, and quality of the M2R. I have yet to find a home for it, but it's a keeper. I use an S2R II for my EDC now and it disappears in my pocket. The M2R is just too big and heavy for that application, for me.
I have many Olight flashlights, and 2 of the M2R Warrior models. The M2R Pro Warrior beats the M2R Warrior specs, and seems to be an upgrade in pretty much every way. It has a bigger rechargeable battery, but actual size & weight over the previous model isn't hugely different. If you like Olight products, and the M2R size lights this will be a natural buy. This light can ride in my pocket, though the smaller S2R Baton ll is less noticeable there. Lastly, I must say I haven't had this new model long enough to really know it 100%, but so far so good.
