  • Streamlight ProTac HL 5-X

    I was issued a Streamlight ProTac HL 5-X today. My gut reaction is that it is too heavy and too big to carry on the dayshift.

    Anyway, is anybody else here using one of these and, if so, what are your impressions on this?

    Here's a link to a YouTube review of the light by "Mrgunsandgear"

    1. Was the light issued to YOU or to THE SITE?

    2. Is the site manned 24/7?

    3. Do you ONLY work days?

    I wouldn't carry that light off the clock but if my (former) employer wanted to issue me one as opposed to ME laying out a hundred bucks to buy my own I'd carry it.

      It was issued to me.

      I have an older, beater Streamlight Stinger that I updated with after-market LED module. I like having a flashlight with me, even on dayshift, but the Streamlight ProTac HL 5-X just seems to big and heavy for everyday belt carry. I might be inclined to have it with in the vehicle and take it out, as necessary.

      No, the site is manned from 0630 t0 2300.

      My schedule is Monday through Friday 0630 to 1500 local time.

        If it was me I'd carry the stinger and leave the HL in my work bag.
