Summary: I have been a full time paid firefighter for 15 years. Love their products. Just what I expected only BRIGHTER!!! I had owned a rechargeable one for years and replaced the battery a couple of times. This would appear to be much more economical. Excellent.
Summary: Am a local firefighter and just put it through its first fire, it lasted all night through being dropped in the mud, banged around, soaked and continued working after being rinsed off that next morning. Very strong and reliable light just have to make sure you attach it with a carabiner to hold it on better and makes for much easier removal if needed.
Summary: This flashlight blows all the others out of the water. I own several models and types of flashlights. I thought that my Maglight that I have owned for years was a good flashlight. It is. But this streamlight is in another class. The beam is concentrated and shoots way out and it will go on what seems like months before the batteries go dead. Love it!
Summary: No light "cuts" through smoke but this light is extremely bright for its size and in the battery version MUCH LIGHTER than the rechargeable which works just fine for me. The equipment today to operate in a fire crushes the spine with its weight. Any way to lighten the load is okay with me. Solid light. Replaceable batteries last a long time too- and I use the light often.
