I tried em out

First off the streamlight. The light is very easy to use, the clicker switch is simple to operate and once you practice a little bit it is simple to find the setting you want. The high mode is very bright a has a lot of throw. It is no problem to light up a tree at 100 yards. The strobe setting would work very well to confuse an attacker or to draw the attention of someone if you were injured or trapped somewhere. The only complaint i have is the low setting it is still a little bit brighter than what u would need to read or work with something up close.

And now the Fenix. This light was an adventure for me i had doubts buying something other than streamlight i have owned many different lights by streamlights including rechargeables and When i turned the Fenix on i was very surprised and pleased. With 6 different settings inlcluding strobe and SOS. This light actually looks a little bit brighter than the streamlight at the high settings. the light has a good throw and will light up just as good if not better than the streamlight. The clicker on this light is a little harder to use and figure out mainly because of the many different settings. The low setting is dim enough to use in confined spaces without a lot of glare and is easier to read with.

I am pleased with both lights and if i had to choose one of the two i would have to go with the Fenix although the sreamlight is a little simpler to use i like all the different light levels the fenix offers. If i had to choose one for an emergency light i would grab the streamlight because it is simple. If i am wanting a survival light i would take the fenix because of the lower dim setting and battery life., Both lights feel good. I am pleased with both, and i know which one i will keep in my hunting bag the Fenix and which one will be in my truck or by the bed the streamlight.

just got a streamlight protac HL usb. Very bright, I will try to review as I use it
 
I used Streamlight Firefighter LED helmet lights On the job. For hunting I really like my SureFire until I got a Fenix. That Fenix is a great hunting light. But for blood trailing I switch to SureFire Flashlight with FM70 Filter Assembly as Fenix does not have that optional accessory
