Streamlight has been making flashlights since '73 and they have come a long way. Their lights are some of the best in the field and their customer service isn't far behind. They consider themselves a hands on company, meaning they take courses in the areas their flashlights are to be used. Smoky house? They've taken firefighter training. Low light combat? They've trained in low light shooting exercises. The outdoors? These people are hunters and fishers at heart. They know exactly what people wan tin a flashlight. Whatever the need a Streamlight will perform.
