Powerful Performance in a Petite Package
Weighing 4.1 ounces, the Streamlight PolyTac Flashlight is 5.22 inches long, 1 inch in diameter at the body, 1-1/4 inches in diameter at the ends, and fits easily in your pocket, purse, backpack, or tool bag. Powered by two CR123A Lithium batteries (included), the PolyTac LED produces 130 lumens of light for up to three hours of battery run time with a C4 LED that will last 50,000 hours.

The Advantages of LED Light
An LED is ideal for a light that gets used on a daily basis. You don't have to worry about breaking the light, since there is no glass or filament, and you rarely have to replace LEDs because they can last a lifetime. Save time and money on batteries as well--they will last much longer with an LED than with a regular light bulb.

C4 Technology Provides Bright, Powerful Illumination
With Streamlight's specially engineered reflector and innovative C4 technology, the PolyTac LED features a brighter, more powerful light than any prior LED on the market. C4 Photonic Crystal technology almost triples the brightness and creates an intense beam that pierces darkness. Solid-state power regulation also maximizes the light output throughout the life of the batteries, producing a consistent illumination level over time.

Push Button for Convenient Operation
Designed for convenience and ease-of-use, the tail-cap push button is quick and simple to use with one hand. Depress the push button slightly for a momentary light, or click the button completely for the constant-on position.

Durably Constructed for Use in Extreme Conditions
Made with high-impact, tough, nylon polymer for exceptional durability and a sure grip, the PolyTac LED is waterproof to 1 meter for 30 minutes and features an O-ring-sealed borofloat glass lens. The PolyTac LED is ideal for use in automotive, hardware, law enforcement, security, sporting, and outdoor applications.

The Streamlight PolyTac LED Flashlight is backed by a manufacturer's limited lifetime warranty.

What's in the Box

I purchased this LED light a few weeks ago. I work for a police department and had the Surefire G2 LED on my issued rifle. I used it at the range and deployed on several other occassions. The light was great!! I purchased the Streamlight LED which is 120 lumens compared to the Surefire G2 which is only 80 lumens, I now have the Streamlight polytac on my rifle and love it. It's alot brighter, same size as the G2 but half the prize, I highly recommend this light vs. the Surefire G2! I also own the Streamlight Stinger DS LED light. It is also a great light and also very bright.

I own a lot of flashlights. Too many really. I only say that because it means I have some basis to say that the Streamlight Poly tac is every bit as good and probably better than my comparable Surefire lights. The Poly tac is a high quality light that is exceptionally bright. The LED is the best that I have seen. The light is white and even. The lumen output seems higher than lights I own that are rated with higher output. This is probably a function of the evenness of the beam and the color but it is very nice. Batteries last a long time, at least as long as the published spec. One of the nicest things about this flashlight is the build quality. All the switches work properly and are very "tight". The light comes across as durable and well made. This stands in contrast to the problems I have had with two of my Surefire lights both of which broke with little use. On each the switching mechanism failed. Each light had a different problem but for the price it shouldn't happen. What I am really saying is that the streamlight is a terrific value. I own another one of their flashlights and it too has worked beautifully. It is well made and functions perfectly. If you are on a budget and really even if you aren't the streamlight is a great choice. If I was going to buy another light like this I would definitely choose this rather than pay the thirty dollar premium for the Surefire.

I'm a Squad Leader with the U.S. Army Infantry. It was my intention to test this light out as a weapon mounted light. I had to do a small modification in order for it to work as one.

I bought this together with the Elzetta Tactical weapon light mount (which is fantastic), and it's an all around great light. Very bright and an excellent price. I DO NOT recommend this as a shotgun light: at the range the light comes on almost every time I fire. I think the recoil causes the light to come on, and is therefore not ideal for a shotgun.

For an everyday or emergency light, I highly recommend it.

I bought this light as a replacement for my Surefire 6P. The 6P eats batteries at a ferocious rate and I wanted a more efficient LED light. It was cheaper to buy this light than the LED conversion for my 6P and the bonus is the tail switch on this light vs the twist/ temp on tail cap of the 6P. The click type tail is more convenient and you can still "strobe" this light if you don't depress the switch all the way.

I like this light so much, I bought several more. If it had a squared off surface to prevent rolling on smooth surfaces I would give it 5 stars.

I am a firefighter and I bought one of these to mount to my helmet I have used it in several fires so far as well as many other incidents and it shows almost no signs of wear. Only a few scratches. The light performs as advertised. The beam is well balanced with a strong center that penetrates well and a usable outer beam that covers a large area. I have had no problems with my light and since have bought 3 more (one for my car one to carry every day and one to mount on a rifle) all of my friends that use G2 have since bought one of these or wish they had. The only thing that I would change is that the batteries would be cheaper but using rechargeables solved this problem for me.

I needed a second light, as I gave my wife my Fenix L2D. I was surprised at how bright the light is, as it is rated for only 130 lumens. The beam is extremely wide, and its throw is far. It seems brighter than my Fenix L2D rated at 180 lumens, and has a wider, brighter beam. This pleasantly surprised me. I put new batteries in the Fenix, and still the same result.

I've always wanted to own a Surefire, but I've always felt their prices are outrageous. The Streamlight Polytac LED is cheaper and brighter than the comparable SureFire G2 LED at about half the cost.

Unless you are going to be around water, then I would rate Streamlight over SureFire. If you are going to dive or have the tendency to lose your light in the water, then go with SureFire.

The only negative with the Polytac is that it doesn't have an anti-roll feature, and no optional clip or lanyard attachment to keep it secure.

I knew all the pros and cons before buying it. I rate it five stars as it does I need it to do, and it does it well.

PROS:

Inexpensive
Bright Beam (130 Lumens)
Good, Wide Beam with an Excellent Throw

CONS:

No anti roll feature
no optional clip attachment
no optional lanyard attachment
only waterproof to 1 meter
