Does the job


I have one on my helmet and one on my radio strap. These lights are near perfect for forward facing lighting. The only down sides are batteries too expensive, the switch can be accidentally turned on - occasionally- and to click the low beam on (most useful light choice it has) you have to click the switch pretty darn quick. All in all a good purchase and I'm happy with it.

Great light, very bright


I use this light either on my bunker gear, clipped to my jacket, or on EMS calls, clipped to EMS pants. It's bright, compact, and ruged enugh to take a beating. I would like it to be easier to switch to the low power beam from high power, and also less expensive batteries, but otherwise, I really like this light.

Save your money on this flashlight


I do not recommend this for a firefighters means of life or death light penetration. Buy the Streamlight: Survivor LED Model instead!!! Much, much better!!!

Fantastic lil light


I love this small flashlight! I use this light with my grass gear and I bought a second one for EMS use. It's as bright as my Survivor angle head light but much better suited for night time grass fires and EMS work. I wouldn't use it for structure gear too small to manipulate while wearing structure gloves! I've had no problem with failures or battery life. My first one I've had about three years and the second one approx one year. I've only replaced the battery one time on my original light! I would have given it 5 stars, but I don't like the attachment clip. It's easily opened during firefighting operations making it easy to lose.

Very bright, sturdy light


Excellent, bright light. Fits right on to my radio strap. Only downfall are the batteries....just expensive. Wish they ran off of AA...but that's not a show stopper.

Good Light When You Need It.


This would not suit you well if you are looking for something to put on your helmet. That isn't it's purpose. Use on my radio strap, mainly during EMS calls. Worth it weight in gold in dim lit rooms. Wish they could make some type of rechargealbe system. Have had mine a little over 5 months, use it every day, and haven't had to change the battery yet. Recieved as a gift, probably wouldn't purchase unless the price was a little lower.

Small & Bright


It's very bright and light weight. But switching to Strobe & Dim takes some practice and isn't easy.

Perfect little light!


Small and powerful little light. I have it clipt onto my leather radio strap and use it primarily on non fire calls. It is light enough that it is almost unnoticeable.

Extremely Unreliable


As a career firefighter I bought this as a backup to a right angle light. I have replaced the batteries at least 4 times in a few months. I also had the light sent back to the factory because it kept dying and they sent it back ""repaired"". However, the light continues to have the same issue. I would not recommend this light because of its unreliability.

Great Little light !


I mounted the light on my turn out coat in place of the large flashlights that we keep on the trucks. Used it at a structure fire the other night and it worked great,plenty of light from a small light weight package. It did not interfere with my harness on the scba.

Not a good light!


First off this light is SMALL! I thought it would be like a right angle light similar to the size of the ones I had in the Army. My bad for not checking the dimensions. But as some say size does not matter. Well here it does. not many places to hang it on. It would work perfect on a radio strap, that's all though. Long story short though. had the light for approx 2 months. It's broken. Bought new batteries still INOP. Fell from chest height onto dirt and it is broken. So do what you will this is best suited for non harsh environments. That is all.

Streamlight: PolyTac 90 = worth the coin


I bought this light after it was recommended by another firefighter. Small, lightweight, extremely powerful and different attachment options make it versatile and easy to use in different configurations. The only downside is it goes through batteries quicker than I guessed, but it's still easily worth the purchase.

Insanely Bright and Compact!


This light was much smaller than I expected and was also much brighter. I would compare the brightness level to that of the polytac HP. The flash mode was a nice plus aswell.

red not orange


Works great. Small and versatile. Purchased orange but, the orange is actually red.

Don't buy!


This flashlight was good for about a month. It quit working within weeks and all it does now is just barely flickers when I try to turn it on. Unfortunately I deleted my email receipt and now I can't return it.

Fantastic little light!!


I love this little light and would buy a 100 more! It's very bright, very well constructed, and slides right on my radio strap. It's the perfect little light for anything from technical rescue in tight quarters, to changing the oil in your vehicle. Would definitely recommend getting your hands on this product!

Small Package, BIG punch


I keep this light on my helmet in the streamlight rubber strap. Illuminates areas excellent. Very rugged, can take a drop with no problem and has been in heat up to 1200__F. Get the 12 pack of batteries as this light eats them, I keep the pack on my gear rack.

Great Product for public servants on a budget


great product for people on a budget in the public service field. good to light up work areas. Ive used it for 360 on structure fires and cars accidents on the highway in the rain

Not reliable and eats batteries


My department purchased 60 of these to reduce our overall profile. Since putting them in service appox. 10 don't work, even with new batteries and the rest eat batteries.

Awesome light, very versatile.


This light is rugged and lasts. Attaches great to turn out gear and radio straps. Well worth the price.

Good little light


I guess I’ve been lucky. I’ve had one on my radio strap and one on my bunker coat for a few years. Both work great, are bright, and lightweight. Battery usage is as expected. A lot of guys in my department use them on their radio strap and like them.
