The Sidewinder Stalker from Streamlight

I have said it once, and I will say it again.  You need to check out Streamlight!  Read below

Being in the military and understanding that we operate mostly at night causes issues sometimes.  But having the right tools in place makes life a lot easier.  That is where Streamlight come in play.  It seems that Streamlight is there to keep us in the military up to date with the most effective products.  As well do they treat the normal person as well.  One of the most universal light Streamlight has is the Sidewinder Stalk.  As you can see to the right on how it can clip on to your mollie vest with ease.  But you do not need to worry on how to attach it to your mollie, because the head of the light moves in every direction to allow it the most effect angle available.

But, sometimes in the military you have like tons of stuff attached to your vest that if you just put one more on it, it will kill you!!  So, if you look at the assembly below

this is how you you can attach it to the helmet.  It connects to the side of the helmet you allow your NVG’s to still fit on.


It is cool right!  Check out what Streamlight says about the all new Sidewinder Stalk:
