The X300 has more lumans over the Scout light, but what advantages would I get with a Scout?
The X300 is rated at 170 lumens
Scout KX2C is rated at 200 lumens
X300U (Ultra) is rated at 500 lumens, and has the most useful beam pattern out of the three, IMO.
I would go with the X300U. The X300 and Scout's beam profiles are just a little too narrow for me. I like the extra spill the X300U offers for more situational awareness.
