Thank you for visiting my review of the Streamlight Vantage helmet flashlight. Here is a quick rundown of some of the features of the Vantage 69140.
The Streamlight Vantage is a small, lightweight flashlight designed to attach to the brim of traditional and modern style fire helmets. While the light can attach to either above or below the helmet I prefer to attach above the helmet for a reduced profile. The light can also swivel 360 degrees on the clamp. One thing to keep in mind is that when clamping a light to a leather helmet, the clamp can leave a permanent indention on the helmet. Also, because the clamp swivel, the light can be mounted on either side of the helmet.
This is a tiny light! It is only 3 ¼ “ long and weighs only 6.4 ounces. The small size can’t be beat for a helmet light.
The Vantage comes with two CR123A Lithium Metal batteries included. While lightweight the batteries only last 6 hours so you will find yourself going through them quickly. The Streamlight batteries can be found at Amazon here.
For the size, this light produces an impressive beam. The C4 LED used in the vantage create 115 lumens and 7,000 candela! The Vantage also holds a very tight beam. Also the blue LED tail light is a nice feature. You won’t find many helmet mounted lights with a tail light.
Confused about the difference between lumens and candela? I explain that here.
This is a very popular helmet light for its weight and durability. There are reports of firefighters caught in situations where fire rolled over them and their helmets and visors needed to be replaced but the Vantage held up. If you are looking for a helmet flashlight, it is hard to go wrong with this one. Find out more by clicking here.
