Description:

Streamlight’s new C4 LED and proven weapon light technology—completely re-engineered to create the most advanced helmet-mounted firefighting light ever. Super small. Super bright. And virtually indestructible! You won’t find a helmet light any tougher. The Vantage’s remarkably compact, lightweight body and inner workings were originally designed to withstand the shock-after-shock recoil of an automatic weapon in combat conditions. Its waterproof, chemical-resistant anodized aircraft aluminum body; high-impact engineering polymer LED housing; and high-temperature, shock-mounted impact resistant Boro Float glass lens will stand up to intense heat, extreme weather, and all the physical punishment your fire scene, rescue operation, or work environment can deliver. Guaranteed. The new C4 LED—almost 3 times brighter than High Flux LEDs. It’s a huge upgrade over even 2nd generation LED technology. In fact the Streamlight C4 premium LED is 7 to 10 times brighter than the first generation LEDs still used in many firefighting flashlights. Yet the new C4 LEDs consume far less energy. The result is a blinding light, far more powerful than any LED before it—with the extended runtime so critical in an unpredictable fire or rescue situation. And because it’s impervious to shock, the primary LED will not break or burn out over its 50,000 hour lifetime. 80 Lumens of precisely formed light for over 4 hours. In the new Vantage Helmet Light, the C4 LED is perfectly matched to a Streamlight-engineered textured parabolic reflector with C4 Photonic Crystal technology to produce a smooth, approximately 80-lumen beam designed especially for firefighting. With a hotspot that pierces the darkness, dust, and smoke…and still provides optimum peripheral illumination. A microcontroller regulates power, delivering more than 4 hours of continuous runtime at over 95% of full brightness before power falls off. Then you get another two hours of diminishing output as bright as many common helmet lights with fresh batteries—to provide plenty of useful light for navigation, back-up, and non-critical situations. See the Vantage Product Fact Sheet for a Performance Curve and full information. An ultra-bright blue safety taillight LED lets your partners see you when they're following, or searching, even in a smoke-filled room. Convenient, long-lived lithium batteries can be changed in seconds. Like the Streamlight Tactical Weapon Lights it’s based on, the Vantage uses two small, lightweight, 3-volt CR123 lithium batteries to power both the main light and an ultra bright blue taillight LED. You can carry a set of spares in any pocket. The back of the Vantage can be opened, the batteries changed, and snapped back on again in under 30 seconds, without taking the light off the helmet. And because the lithium batteries have a storage life over 10 years, and are not affected by extreme temperatures, they provide a convenient and extremely reliable source of power. Features: * Lightweight, compact, low profile design easily attaches/detaches above or below brim on traditional and modern style fire helmets, industrial helmets, and hard hats * C4 LED is 2-3 times brighter than previous generation LEDs * Up to 4,500 candela peak central intensity; 80

    Awesome little light with a lot of power. Very bright and light weight compared to other helmet lights. I like the tail ended blue LED. It is super bright and easy to see, even in smoke.

    Compact, takes seconds to install with no tools required, and built tough. Finally got a chance to use it in a structure fire and was amazed how much it lit up even in heavy smoke conditions. And the tail light allows other firefighters to see where your at and also lights their way when following you.
