A review of SureFire's newest gotta-have gizmo:
The HL1-A-TN Helmet Light
I saw this briefly at SHOT Show 2006 in Las Vegas but was overwhelmed by the thousands of other goodies through out the convention hall and the tent outside that I didn't take much time to check it out. But as fortune would have it, a good friend of mine gave me one shortly after the show. I would have preferred a pint of Guinness but I reluctantly settled for this instead. ;)
This compact helmet light is molded out of a sturdy, tan-colored polymer with the SureFire logo in raised lettering above the brightness adjustment button. The brightness adjustment button and toggle switches are covered with dark brown rubber. The IFF LED has a soft, khaki-colored cover with "IFF" recessed below the actual IFF LED. The battery compartment lies at the bottom of the helmet light assembly and has a battery cover complete with o-ring. There is a thick rubber lanyard attaching the battery cover to the helmet light.
