SureFire LED Helmet Light HL1 provides a compact, hands-free, low-output illumination source. The SureFire Helmet Light is ideal for navigation and close-quarter work like reading maps and documents, loading gear, or repairing equipment in the field. Surefire makes this LED flashlight from tough, weatherproof Nitrolon polymer and equips it with virtually indestructible light-emitting diodes (LEDs). The lightweight SureFire HL1 Headlamp attaches directly to the side of any TC 2000 MICH (Modular Integrated Communications Helmet). SureFire HL1 Watertight Helmet Flashlight uses a single 123A lithium battery and six LEDs to produce three different types of light at multiple power levels.
This compact, multiple-output LED Helmet Light by Sure-Fire features three white or yellow-green LEDs, two blue / red / IR 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 of the Surefire light serve the same purpose in a low-signature, night-vision-friendly color. Sure Fire HL1 Tactical Head Flashlight 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 flashlight can be easily slid onto the mount, where locks into place; depressing a small lever slides the Surefire headlamp right off.
While designed primarily for military and SWAT applications, the SureFire Helmetlight is also an option for caving, climbing, construction, or search-and-rescue operations - pretty much any activity involving wearing a helmet and requiring low-output, hands-free illumination.
