The U.S.-assembled lights have machined 6061-T6 aluminum housings and Cree white LEDs activated by rubberized tailcap switches with momentary and click-on, click-off settings for high, low and strobe modes. The Cortex is 6.3" long and weighs 5.8 ozs. While the Cortex Compact is 3.5"-4" long, depending on battery, and weighs 2.1 ozs. Both lights include replaceable spring-steel pocket clips and come with AA batteries.
