Vantage™ Helmet-Mounted Tactical Light from Streamlight

EAGLEVILLE, Pa. - Streamlight®, Inc., a leading flashlight manufacturer for fire and rescue uses, has introduced the Vantage™, a compact, low-profile tactical flashlight that attaches easily to full-brim fire helmets.

The new hands-free light features new C4™ power LED technology which produces two to three times the output of Super High Flux LEDs and a special safety tail light so firefighters can be followed in even the thickest smoke.

The Vantage is specially designed to attach snuggly and securely above or below fire helmets - both modern and traditional - through the use of a swivel clamp so it won't snag or get in the way. The new light also features an ultra-bright blue safety tail light that enables firefighters and rescue workers to be seen in smoke-filled rooms, blackout conditions and other emergency situations regardless of which direction the light is shining.

"Vantage's compact size and tail-light feature, in combination with its powerful C4 LED, make it the perfect tactical hands-free light for firefighting personnel and other first responders who require lighting tools with extreme brightness and long run times," said Streamlight Chief Operating Officer Ray Sharrah. "Its integrated bracket design makes it extremely easy to use - firefighters can attach or remove the light in seconds without the need for tools, and rotate it 360 degrees on the swivel clamp."

Sharrah said the Vantage features a light intensity of up to 4,500 candela (peak central intensity) and 80 lumens total system output for six hours of continuous runtime to the 10% output level. The light's textured parabolic reflector produces a smooth beam hotspot with optimum side illumination to aid in navigation. It includes a 470 nanometer Ultra-bright blue tail light LED with a 100,000 hour lifetime. It uses two 3-volt CR123A lithium batteries, and is operated using a dual direction, On-Off switch located at the rear of the light which can be operated even with heavy gloves. The Vantage weighs a mere 5.14 ounces.

Featuring a body constructed of 6000 series machined aluminum, the Vantage features a high-impact, chemically resistant engineering polymer LED housing, and a lens that is made of high-temperature, shock-mounted and impact-resistant Boro Float glass. The IPX7 rated design is waterproof to one meter for 30 minutes. The Vantage, which retails for $195, comes with Streamlight's "Limited-Lifetime" Warranty.
