The popular brand Streamlight has always been considered as a "hands-on" company by many shooters and hunters alike. The company was first started out trading back in 1973, which has given them decades in order to perfect many of their finest accessories. The manufacturers and engineers at Streamlight are known to take part in rigorous training for firefighting and have also spent time with fishermen, sports and outdoor enthusiasts, and even huntsmen in order to perfect their products. By dabbling in real-world experiences, it has led Streamlight to brand new ideas and bespoke innovations that set Streamlight apart to their competition.
The Streamlight PolyTac Flashlight is part of Streamlight's impressive and incredibly popular tactical line of lightweight LED flashlights and now features two different brightness settings. The PolyTac Flashlight from Streamlight has been specifically manufactured for high performance, which is great news for individuals who like to give their equipment a hard time. The 1.7 inch diameter of the flashlight’s head that features on the Streamlight PolyTac comes with a deep reflector that has been specially engineered in order to focus the light from the flashlight’s LED into a bright and powerful beam that is capable of projecting light up to 902 feet away. The Streamlight PolyTac Flashlight is capable of running for up to 56 hours (on a low setting) on just two ordinary CR123 lithium batteries. Lithium batteries are known to come with a 10-year shelf life and are also great performers during extreme temperatures, which is great news if you are planning on stocking up on them.
The PolyTac line from Streamlight utilizes polymer technology for their product’s housing rather than the more commonly found machined aluminum. This is because the polymer is exceptionally strong and lighter in weight when compared to the likes of aluminum. The PolyTac from Streamlight features a larger head which allows for further beam reach than the regular PolyTac flashlight, but the great news is, despite the larger head, it can still be pocket carried around with ease.
