    Default Streamlight Vantage on Paul Conway Heritage Leather

    Hey. Does anyone use a Streamlight Vantage on their Paul Conway American Heritage leather helmet? I've seen these lights, and really like them, but I've run into problems in the past. Apparently the rubber ring around the brim of the Paul Conways are larger than most...and some mounts haven't fit. Anyone have experience with this combination?

    It fits fine, I have that light and helmet. I'm back on shift Sunday, you want some pics of how mine is mounted.

    Don't put it on the bottom though, it gets bumped and turns on easier if it is under the brim. However, while on top it hits the strap to the goggles unless you tuck it in. I also used a quarter to crank the screw down super tight. They said not to do that, but they ain't the boss of me!

    I would not mount it on the top of the brim of any helmet as it is easy for it to get snagged on something. I had it happen twice with my Blackjack mount. I put the light under the drim but i did not like the fact at how tight it grips the brim. I have since mounted my light to the rubber helmet band with a hose clamp so if i ever get snagged, the band will simply pull off.
