Streamlight Sidewinder Compact
Written by Lawrence   

Manufacturer: Streamlight
Type: Helmet/Web gear light

Using the same technology in the Streamlight Sidewinder, Streamlight shrunk down their helmet/web gear mounted light by half. Instead of running off 2 AA batteries, the Sidewinder Compact runs on 1 CR123A battery and only weighs 3.3 oz.

The light comes with many useful real world features for military and law enforcement such as:

-4 levels of light intensity in White C4 LED; IR LED; Red LED; Blue LED:

Low (5%)

Medium 1 (25%)

Medium 2 (60%)

High (100%)

-High output (100%) strobe in White C4 LED; IR LED; Red LED; Blue LED

-185 degree pivoting light head

-360 degree light rotation

-Easy to use on/off button for use with gloves

-Pull knob to change light selection

Overall, I have been impressed with the durability and usefulness of this light.  It is very easy to use and with all its functions has not let me down once.
