“It’s compact but with a powerful beam,” she says, “I also like the Ten-Tap Programming that lets me switch to high, low or strobe easily.”
The Ten-Tap technology offers three programs; high /strobe/ low, high only and low/ high. It’s activated with a push-button tail switch so it can be conveniently operated with one hand. At its highest setting, this flashlight boasts a maximum 600 lumens and 1.25 hour runtime.
“I actually ended up buying one for my husband, too,” she says, “He’s a cop, and now he keeps one on him whether he’s on or off duty!”
Built with a tough anodized machined aircraft aluminum construction, the Streamlight ProTac HL Professional is an apt choice for law enforcement professionals because it’s built to hold up. In fact, it was tested and proven to have a 1m impact resistance. The lense is sealed with an O-ring so it’s highly water-resistant as well as being waterproof up to 1m for 30 minutes.
