          FoxFury is a California, USA based company that makes professional LED lights favored by many firefighters for use on their helmets.   Since FoxFury got its start in California, it’s no surprise that Fox Fury’s first light, (a side angle, LED headlamp) was originally invented for the night surfer.  Ever since their first light was engineered in 2003, FoxFury has been making hands-free, impact and water resistant lighting.

          The FoxFury 400-006 Performance Fire LED Helmet Light/Headlamp has been purchased by firefighters, and other professionals in over 50 countries.  This intrinsically safe light will fit most fire helmets and not interfere with bourkes, goggles or other helmet mounted eye protection.  Because this is a “head lamp” style helmet light, it covers part of

          The Beam and Batteries

          The 400-006 uses 4 AA batteries (which are not included) to power the 20 white LEDs and 4 green LEDs.  The light produces 82 lumens in high mode and 33 lumens in low mode. The batteries will last seven hours or 14 hours respectively.  The green LEDs used in conjunction with the white help improve depth perception and help with visibility in smoke.

          Durability

          Because this light was designed for surfers, there is no need to worry about it being damaged by water.  It is waterproof to 20 feet.  The 400-06 also meets the NFPA 1971 requirements and is impact resistant from almost 10 feet.  This light is also backed by a Fox Fury two year warranty.
