    Default Mounting Issue with Streamlight Vantage

    I recently bought a Streamlight Vantage helmet light. I like the light but I am having trouble with mounting it. My department issues Cairns 1010 helmets with a 6" faceshield. The problem is that no matter how I mount it the facesheild obstructs the light. Maybe I am missing something. Has anyone else had this issue? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    Did you resolve this? I have a Cairns 360SFSY and am seeing a similar issue. I can bottom mount it and it seems like it will work with the visor up.

    I checked with Streamlight and they informed me it will not work with this helmet / shield combo. I've returned it and gone with one of their bands and a Streamlight 4AA Xenon instead...seems to work out.
