This compact, multiple-output Helmet Light in tan features three white LEDs, two blue LEDs, and one blinking red infrared LED that serves as a personal Identify Friend or Foe beacon. The white LEDs are perfect for general-purpose, close-work illumination; the blue lights serve the same purpose in a low-signature, night-vision-friendly color.

It attaches via a special mount that clamps semi-permanently to the rim of the 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 slides it right off. Or you can purchase a Molle Compatible Vest Clip to attach your helmet light onto your vest or anywhere else you have webbing for it.

    Surefire True Stories - Helmet Light Saves the Night
    At 17:00 hrs in late September, the Lincoln volunteer ambulance was paged to rescue a hunter who'd fallen and fractured his leg. He was five miles from the trailhead in the Scapegoat Wilderness. Most of the route he'd traveled was off the forest service trail and followed a creek up the Continental Divide over steep terrain.

    We were able to locate him about 19:00 hrs (after the sun set). We had a couple of flashlights, but, unfortunately, the six extra batteries I always carry were tucked safely in my vest—back down the mountain on the passenger seat of the ambulance. We managed to get the hunter off the mountain by 23:30, but as we started hiking back, our flashlights died. Luckily, I had my SureFire Helmet Light with me, so I mounted it to the Tango Down mount on my cap, and was able to lead us safely back to the trail head, where our ambulance awaited us.
