STREAMLIGHT®'S TRIDENT LED HEADLAMP RECEIVES 2013 EDITOR'S CHOICE AWARD FROM OUTDOOR LIFE MAGAZINE
EAGLEVILLE, PA — November 8, 2013 — Streamlight® Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting and weapon light/laser sighting devices, received Outdoor Life's prestigious 2013 Editor's Choice Award for its versatile Trident® LED headlamp. The headlight features C4® LED technology and three ultra-bright white LEDS to offer a broad range of up-close and distance lighting applications.
After undergoing Outdoor Life's rigorous testing process, the Trident LED Headlamp received the highest scores among hunting, fishing, and outdoor related gear. The resulting Editor's Choice Award is considered one of the two most sought-after gear awards in the industry.
The Trident LED was rated "the most durable and most comfortable headlamp in the field," according to the magazine, and also featured "by far the longest beam of the lamps tested." The light was recommended for "duck hunters, bowfishermen, gator hunters, and anyone else who spends time in dark marshes and swamps."
"Outdoor Life's ratings give you the unbiased and accurate truth on outdoor gear," said Andrew McKean, Editor of Outdoor Life. "Products are thoroughly tested, and winning items earn the title based exclusively on the hard data and scores. So when we say a particular item is the best, you can take that to the bank."
The multi-purpose Trident LED headlamp features three lighting modes: 1 white C4 LED for bright light and strong beam distance (4,000 candela, 80 lumens, 126 meters); (3) 5mm LEDs for intense brightness and longer run time (385 candela, 35 lumens, 10 hours); and (1) 5mm LED for an extended, 53-hour run time with a less intense beam (120 candela, 11 lumens, 22 meters).
"We're very pleased to have the Trident LED recognized by such a leading outdoor publication as Outdoor Life," said Streamlight President and Chief Executive Officer Ray Sharrah. "Streamlight has taken advantage of the latest technology innovations to address the hands-free lighting needs of outdoor enthusiasts. The Trident LED offers a unique balance of features for both long-range distance lighting, such as lighting your way to a tree stand or duck blind, as well as for close-up work around a campsite or when hunting or fishing."
The Trident LED Headlamp offers a robust ratchet system for the 90° tilting head, which prevents neck fatigue. Featuring a co-molded rubber body that offers superior durability, the light also has a recessed, easy-to-use push-button switch to protect it from inadvertent activation.
Powered by 3 AAA alkaline batteries, the headlamp features Streamlight's new low-level battery indicator, a red LED that flashes when voltage is low and batteries are nearly depleted.
The Trident LED Headlamp weighs 5.5 ounces and is IPX4 rated for water resistance up to two meters. The headlight includes an elastic and rubber head strap.
The MSRP for the Trident LED Headlamp is $38.00, and includes Streamlight's Limited Lifetime Warranty.
