These flashlights look like Convoy clones. I don’t know if Convoy manufactures them but some clones are almost identical to real Convoy flashlights.

Yes they are convoy clones. There are many. Some are good, some are bad. These are excellent.

The packing was something very rare from China. They were packed as if they cost $2000 and not $20.

BTW, the horrendous Chinese packaging where the box looks like it came out of someone’s a?? Is relatively new.

For the old timers that remember the 409shop from 20 years ago , the packing was incredible. In box, wrapped with brown paper, and hand written address.

Those days are gone.

Are any Convoy clones better than actual Convoy flashlights?

(Serious question, by the way.)

It is hard to beat Convoy flashlights, especially in their price range. I believe, it does not get any better than Convoy flashlights. Cool

Yep, Convoy is great, but I like Sofirn a bit more.

And many Sofirn flashlights are in the same price range as Convoy.

convoy is great and cheap

they tend to be a bit behind on modern interfaces though

also they don;t seem interested in making anything small

I never took a close look at these but I recall seeing them in suggested items on ali.  Are they clones in a way that can harm Simon's business?  Pricing (or links)?  What about the nuts and bolts....driver, retaining ring material, lens, switch, etc?
