    Just picked up a Fox Fury Performance Helmet Light for work. Haven't used it for anything particularly serious yet but it seems to work pretty well.

    Anyone out there have any experience with them?

    No experience with the Fox Fury, I use a Streamlight 4AA...I got one on my helmet and one in my right cargo...I'd never leave the station without them.


    Let us know how it works for you we are always looking for something better.

    Seems like it might get in the way too easy. You wear the band around you or the helmet?!?!?

    Well, so far I'm liking the light. After a few days, the weight it added to helmet was no longer noticeable. It puts out a lot of light, exactly where your eyes are looking. The "hands-free" factor was what sold me on the light in the first place.

    Unfortunately, I haven't caught a job in the week or so I've been using it, so I can't comment on the light's effectiveness in smoke. Soon...:)
