Streamlight PolyTac LED Helmet Light

SKU: W-88850-LED//Mixed Availability


Mount this super bright, compact flashlight to your helmet or carry in your hand for up to 275 lumens of powerfully focused lighting.

The all-purpose PolyTac with TEN-TAP® Programming. Also available in a Universal Lighting Kit which includes two superior low-profile mounting options to fit your preferences and changing needs.

 Advanced Streamlight C4® LED technology delivers 275 lumens of piercing white light for 3 hours continuous regulated runtime at over 90% of full brightness on High.

At 5.34” long, and 4.2 oz., the powerful PolyTac produces a central beam with optimum peripheral illumination for easier navigation and improved situational awareness. On Low it provides a very useful 14 lumens of light for up to 65 hours of continuous runtime. Plus it can produce a visible life-saving warning signal in strobe mode.

This versatile, virtually indestructible flashlight offers durability and simple operation as well as TEN-TAP® Programming that gives users the choice of three operating modes.

TEN-TAP® Programming for Flexible Lighting Options - Streamlight makes flashlights for a wide variety of applications, but they understand that not everyone wants the same lighting options. Do you like most of the features of a flashlight, but not the pre-set programs?

Now, with their TEN-TAP® Programming, you can reprogram the light from the standard default option. Reprogramming is easy and can be done from anywhere – with just a few quick taps of the switch you can change the lighting to fit your needs and how you’ll be using it.

With those lights that feature TEN-TAP® Programming, you can choose from three user-selectable programs. For the PolyTac you have the following TEN-TAP® Programming options:
  1. High/Strobe/Low (factory default)
  2. High only
  3. Low/High
General Operation: Some Streamlight flashlights feature a programmable switch with momentary operation (light press or tap) and constant on operation (press until click). Lights are shipped from the factory in the default program. For specific information on your light’s TEN-TAP® Programming, please see the instructions included with your light.

Accessing Other Programs: With lights featuring the TEN-TAP® programmable switch, you are able to select one of three different programs to meet your lighting application needs. To change to the next program, starting from the “Off” position, tap the switch rapidly 9 times (within 0.4 seconds per tap) and hold it down the 10th time. Continue holding the switch until the light turns off (approximately 1 second), and then release the switch. Repeat this pattern to change to the next program.

Universal Lighting Kit: This kit fits both traditional and modern style helmets. It includes a PolyTac LED and also provides two low profile, lightweight, economical alternatives for securely mounting a flashlight to almost any style helmet.

Streamlight Flashlight Helmet Mount: A durable, lightweight, aluminum mount attaches easily to the brim of firefighter's helmets with no tools required. An ideal hands-free solution.
  • “Captured locking" set screw will not back out - prevents FOD (Foreign Object Debris)
  • Safety measure: Set screw helps to avoid batteries being changed out, or the housing inadvertently being opened in a hazardous environment
  • Set screw goes into a metal trap that evenly distributes pressure to protect the body from over-tightening of the set screw
  • No tools required
Rubber Helmet Strap: This rubber flashlight strap for helmets is used in conjunction with the PolyTac series flashlights and offers low profile, hands-free lighting. It is a quick and easy, "no tools required" method to attach your PolyTac LED flashlight to almost any helmet. Made of engineered high-strength rubber.
  • Molded in a single piece from naturally fire-and-heat-resistant rubber with just the right amount of stretch to fit over any size or style helmet.
  • Holds one or two flashlights, perfectly aligned above the brim on either (or both) sides of the helmet, positioned for maximum protection and the lowest possible profile.
  • Perfectly round flashlight holes and the smooth, straight edges are reinforced with a thicker, rounded bead to prevent tearing, curling, and fraying.
  • Flashlight holes are aligned and centered around the creases of the strap, and stretch to allow easy insertion and positioning.
  • Keeps one or two lights tucked in tightly against helmet dome, just above the brim, for protection from snags, impact, or debris.
  • Flexible band can also hold other accessories to your helmet.
  • Case Material:
    • High impact super tough nylon polymer for exceptional durability and a sure grip.

Great Light.


Great light.

Best Flashlight For The Money!


High quality light, reliable. Super bright. Will light up a scene like a RAL.

A great light for the price.


I've carried this light in my running gear for a few months and it's been handy on more than one occasion. It's small, light, tough, and VERY bright. I've also used it while doing motorcycle repairs. It worked great for that also. This light is fantastic for its price.

Bright flashlight!


On my duty belt with my knife and Leatherman. Good combination for work.

Portable sunlight


Extremely bright and compact. Cuts smoke like hot butter.

Please Read!


When I bought this light, I bought the kit assuming it would just be the flashlight with the belt clip. However, when it arrived, I was surprised to see that it came with a streamlight helmet bracket AND helmet strap. Eventhough these lights are a little on the expensive side, it is well worth the money and I love the service that Streamlight offers. Along with TheFireStore.com

Brightest light in my department


The light is extremely bright and durable, however the metal mount it comes with is junk. Easily fixed by buying a blackjack mount. My only problem with the light is that replacement batteries are expensive and can be hard to find however I have had the light for over 2 years now and the original batteries have yet to die. All around great light!
