MY STRION® LED SAT IN SNOW, WATER AND SUB-ZERO TEMPERATURES FOR OVER TWO MONTHS. BUT ONCE I DRIED IT OFF, IT WAS GOOD AS NEW!
About 2 months ago, I lost my Strion LED while on duty. I am a K9 handler and my furry partner likes to jump up on me and knocked it out of my holster. I searched for about an hour in the 12+ inches of snow in subzero temps with no luck. Yesterday, I was checking the area again now that the snow has melted. The area was flooded in about 6 inches of water. Just when I was about to give up, there it was.
There was a little hazing on the body and water in the lens. I took it apart and shook out as much water as I could. When I got home, I finished cleaning up the contacts, put it back together and put it in the charger. I checked it an hour later and GOOD AS NEW!
I cannot say enough about how pleased I am with your product. For it to sit for over 2 months in snow, water and subzero temperatures, then work as if it was new is simply amazing. Thank you for making such an awesome product for all of us to use in the performance of our duties.

I DEPEND ON MY SIDEWINDER®.
AND THERE’S NO BETTER FEELING THAN KNOWING IT WILL WORK
EVERY TIME I PUSH THE BUTTON.
I am an Aviation Structural Mechanic in the U.S. Navy, deployed overseas on a frigate. I work on helicopters 12 hours a day for 6 months straight.
Before I left, I purchased your Sidewinder Compact® II. I knew I needed a good flashlight because I work nights, and I needed something that was going to be bright and had a red light for our night vision needs. The option of using different size batteries is amazing, because on board we might not have a certain kind, so being able to use a different size is great.
I've been using this flashlight for the past 4 months, and it's the best flashlight I have ever used. It has fallen from heights of 20 feet multiple times. It has been kicked around a hard, anti-skid flight deck. It’s been through multiple rain storms, and multiple salt water splashes from waves. There’s no better feeling than knowing when I push the button to turn on the light it will always come on, and I can get to work.
A lot of guys out here have had to replace many of their cheap headband headlights already, which is not easy. Since we're on a ship, they have to wait weeks till they can get a new one sent in. I haven't had that problem and I don't think I ever will.
Nowadays, it's hard to find a good quality product like yours. I love knowing my flashlight is made in the USA, and I think that's a lot of the reason why it works so great. I am now a customer for life.

I DROPPED MY STINGER® LED INTO 5ft. of RUSHING WATER. AS I WATCHED IT FLOAT AWAY, I THOUGH THAT WAS THE END; BUT …
I am a police officer working the overnight shift, and a dependable flashlight is a must.
While barricading a roadway to keep traffic from driving through exceptionally high waters during a recent storm, I dropped my Streamlight® Stinger® LED into a drainage way with approximately 5 feet of rushing water. The light traveled approximately 20 feet before disappearing from view. I was devastated at the loss of such an exceptional tool.
After checking the drainage way daily, the water had receded enough so that I found my light stuck in a crack in the drainage way. The light was still under about 2 feet of water. I took it apart and allowed it to dry. I then charged the light, and by some miracle it worked, as if nothing had ever happened.
I will only buy your lights from this day forth. Thank you for making a selection of fantastic products which someone in a profession such as mine can depend on.
