Overall this is a good little light. I like that the on/off button is larger than similar lights I looked at, making it easy to manipulate with gloves...

streamlight sidewinder compact 2

by Kenny, from United States, KS Written on December 19, 2014
Excellent little light! I like everything about it. I already have two sidewinder compacts and a AA sidewinder; all sportsman models. Bought this one primarily to get the low output for the first mode. Glad I did! I have over 20 other lights including, 2 O light S10 one S20 one M20 Nitecore SRT3, SRT5, SRT7, Sunwayman D20A, and a number of others. Guess I like lights maybe? Also have an O light S15 on the way....

Streamlight Sidewinder Compact II Military flashlight

by WB, from United States, NM Written on November 3, 2014
I purchased this flashlight to compare it with other models that provide a 'hands free' option in low light situations when I am providing emergency medical treatment to injured people. I like the versatility of the mounting options which allow for illumination to be directed in a variety of directions. This device is very well made and should handle the abuse encountered in the field well. The kit I purchased included the picatinny rail mount option which I wanted to provide maximum flexibility depending on the situation. As far as the light source the model I purchased has white, red, blue, and IR light options with four variable brightness settings from low to high which should be adequate for my needs. I will test the effectiveness of the IR mode when I can borrow a PVS-14 or similar NODS unit. The light selection control positively locks in position to prevent accidental illumination or loss of night vision by accidental white light operation....
Pros:
  • light weight
  • reasonable price
  • Well constructed
  • versatile light options
Cons:
  • None

Its a good solid light

by Nathan, from United States, KS Written on October 21, 2014
Smaller than I thought. It mounts nicely on my gear. Switch is easy. Click-through brightness settings. Very lightweight. Wish i could have found it in black. In short a good, small flashlight that easily mount to gear, head mount strap , helmet or small handheld....

Nice Light

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on April 28, 2012
Overall this is a good little light. I like that the on/off button is larger than similar lights I looked at, making it easy to manipulate with gloves on. I mounted it to a ballistic helmet, and it's on there good and sturdy. I also like that it can be clipped somewhere on your body as well if need be. On the brightest setting it's plenty bright for most applications, building clearing, ect, but this brings me to my main complaint. To get to the brightest setting you have to hold the on/off button until it cycles to the brightest setting. I wish it had been set up to go from brightest to dimmest rather than the other way. More than that I wish it just had a memory feature that would turn the light back on to the setting it was on when turned off. My only other small complaint is the somewhat involved light selector switch (red to blue, to IR, ect.) However, unless your going to be going back and forth from light to light I don't see it being a huge deal....
