SureFire flashlights are known around the world as the lighting system for any and every tactical scenario. In 1969 their original product line consisted of laser sighting systems for firearms. After many years of intense research and development, the SureFire WeaponLight was born and low light law enforcement & military operations changed forever. SureFire then went on to establish themselves as the leading manufacturer of rugged, powerful and compact illumination tools for tactical applications; from weapon-mounted lights and laser sights, shield lights, baton lights & hand-held lights powerful and bright enough to qualify as force-multiplier tools that could temporarily blind, unbalance, and disorient a threat.
Every activity that involves wearing a helmet and requires hands-free illumination can be enhanced with this compact illumination tool from the masters of light, SureFire. While the Helmet Light HL1-C-TN was designed primarily for military and law enforcement applications, it's extremely well suited and easily adapted to other applications such as caving, climbing, construction, or search and rescue missions.
The Helmet Light is a compact, hands-free, low-output illumination source for navigation and close-quarter work like reading maps and documents, loading gear, or repairing equipment in the field. The lighting scheme on this version of the SureFire helmet light provides white LEDs for the primary beam, and red LEDs for the secondary beam. The IFF beacon is delivered by IR LEDs that blink in the appropriate pattern.
It attaches via a special mount that clamps semi-permanently to the rim of any TC 2000 MICH (Modular Integrated Communications Helmet) helmet by means of two socket-head machine screws. Once attached, the light can be easily slid onto the mount, where it locks into place. Depressing a small lever enables the operator to slide it off easily. The swing-arm features several click-stops for secure positioning.
The Helmet Light is tough, rugged, and durable. The weatherproof and waterproof housing is crafted from a non-conductive glass filled polymer (Nitrolon), and the light emitting diodes (LEDs) are virtually indestructible.
