Helmet Lights, which one is best...

  • Helmet Lights, which one is best...

    I'm looking for some personal feedback on helmet lights. I'm in the market for a reliable and functional light. Few of the guys have the Streamlight Vantage. I've been looking at those and the Fox Fury lights (Discover Fire and Discover Tasker S models). Nobody has a Fox Fury light so any information would be helpful. Thanks for any info...

    I have a streamlight vantage on my helmet. I love it. I'm able to move it around when i need it to be, It surprisingly doesn't get stuck on anything, and Its REALLY Bright. The blue LED in the back of the light is handy aswell, considering I'm the only one on my FD that has it, everyone know's its me...

      I have a Surefire 6P light, in a blackjack mount. I also have a Malkoff Devices M61WLL LED emitter, which runs about 12 hours on a set of batteries. It ain't cheap, but it is awesome.

        Surefire is the ONLY light brand I trust. They'll serve you to hell and back and then some. Yeah, they use the CR123 batteries but for good reasons and they aren't the cheapest but a 6P or similar isn't *that* badly priced.

          Having burned and melted both Garrity lights and UK4AA lights on my helmet I have no intention of putting one of those ultra expensive lights on my lid. I still use either a Garrity or the UK4AA and they have served me well. Add to that the fact that IF they are destroyed the cost of replacement is low.

          Having said that I know a guy on on of my POC FDs that has some little black tactical looking light on his helmet that cost him around $150. For that I can buy 6 or 7 UKAA, or 30 Garrity lights. Different strokes for different folks. have at it and enjoy!!

          My main flashlight is a Streamlight xL90 on the front of my coat. The helmet light is more a convenience light than anything else to me. I know most often I don't even turn it on when searching in smke conditions.

            I've melted several Garrity lights over the years. Last year I was given a Fox Fury Command 20 LED light and asked if I would try it. Loved it some much I've bought one for all the FFer's. There a little more expensive, but worth it in smoky conditions. In this years budget the engineers and probies will get the Fox Fury's. MHO.

              Gordo, without a doubt, the Spartan Shield Light is the best light on the market as it is embedded in the helmet shield and shines where the FF looks. Take a look at the gallery that shows some of the So Cal Firefighters currently using it: http://www.spartanshieldlight.com/gallery.html

                Someone asks about a good light for a helmet, I respond with a recommendation, my friend who owns the solution responds, and you report us both for spam? I guess with 2593 post since 2001 you are the boss here

                  I love my streamlight. The blue LED is nice for my partner following me.
