First Look: Streamlight HL-X Pro Tactical Light

Pinterest WhatsApp

Streamlight has just unveiled the new ProTac HL-X Pro light, a high lumen, long-range tactical light that offers switch redundancy and battery versatility. The new Streamlight HL-X Pro is available as either a standalone tactical light or as a tactical lighting system that  includes a remote pressure switch, jack-cap tail switch, remote retaining clips, double-sided tape, zip ties and a M-Lok mount.

“This newest addition to the ProTac family of weapon-mounted lights is the ‘whole package,’” said Streamlight President and Chief Executive Officer Ray Sharrah. “It not only functions as a high lumen light, but with its 50,000 candela and long beam reach, it also puts more light on a target at a distance. This makes it a powerful tactical tool for law enforcement professionals, military personnel and other first responders as they perform room clearing, search operations and other maneuvers under low-light conditions. Its innovative tail cap switch provides switch redundancy, offering both a push-button switch and a port for a remote pressure switch. And users can choose between rechargeable and disposable batteries, depending on preference or availability.”

The Streamlight HL-X Pro is machined from 6000 series aircraft grade aluminum with Type II Hardcoat anodizing. Designed with hard use in mind, the HL-X Pro is IP67 waterproof rated for 30 minutes in one meter of water using the standard push button tailcap. When paired with a remote pressure switch, the rating is IP54. Streamlight logged extensive live fire testing while developing the HL-X Pro, and it is also impact resistant from a height of two meters. The light runs off either the standard CR123 batteries or Streamlight’s BL-26 battery, which can be independently recharged.
