I like the Crimson Trace lightguard very much, so much so I went ahead and ordered their laser as well. Wish they had one with the green laser because I'm pretty sure their brighter. I feel the Crimson Trace set up is a little more discrete and easier to conceal opposed to the X5L, it's a tough comparison, both are quite slick. But, if ct had a green laser I would definitely go with that one. I will likely be providing a picture when I get the laser in.
