Design

The Convoy S9 is a compact tube flashlight. With a length of 11.4 cm and weight of 62 grams, it is lightweight and portable. With use of the Lanyard and a back clip, it’s more convenient to carry. When hold in hand, it has a similar build quality with Convoy S2+ that is quite excellent, especially for its price range. It’s solid with a body made out of aluminum alloy and with anodized finish. But the cover will have scratches when the back clip is installed. The knurling design is applied in all three main sections that is grippy but not aggressive.
