A Gentleman in the mountains, no matter what his means of access, should be appropriately attired at all times, specifically in a manner which befits his modesty and public decency.

My only worry is that of longevity, I'm confident that the Exposure would last many years in the worst conditions that Welsh weather can throw at it but I'm interested to know how well the Ultrafire will fair.
The Ultrafire has been out in all weathers, even left out in torrential rain and snow for days on my neglected commuter hack. The torch still works perfectly.
