Testimonial from Ryan Pennington

Being a close friend and a member of the FoxFury Lighting Solutions family I have the honor of abusing, not just using, the FoxFury product line. Having this access to their lights gives the latitude to NEVER take them off or limit its exposure to high heat and conditions experienced both on duty, as a jumpseat firefighter, and as a live fire burn instructor. To say that the conditions are beyond what one would consider “normal” would be an understatement, especially during the time spent in the flashover chamber and loading the fuel loads in the burn rooms while making realistic conditions for the firefighter students. I would like to share a look at my FoxFury Discover Tasker S helmet light that I have been abusing since July 2013. Above is a short photo story of how it has withstood the punishment.

"I believe FoxFury has the best designs and functions of any other model on the market, and I have come to depend on them and use them regularly. Thanks again for your products.

Here is a photo of your product in action at a meth lab."

"The head lamp is working great. I have had the opportunity to use it in extensively in suppression duties as well as several MVA related calls. Our Rescue Driver at the station purchased a Command 20 also, whenever we show up at drill people want to check out the lights, most are impressed with its intense discharge and all are impressed with the safety light on the battery pack. The light sits evenly on the helmet (as opposed to my old light which gave a slight tilt to the helmet as it was just a flashlight with a mount). Its 3 discharge settings are great and the only complaint I have heard is that it’s too bright! Thanks again for making such a great product!" Malac G., Firefighter/Paramedic, Central Pierce Fire Rescue (WA)

"We highly recommend these headlamps for anyone who runs a wildland fire handcrew. We use the Performance Series for our saws and the Command Series for our firefighters. The difference between what we used before (standard headlamp) and the FoxFury is literally night and day. Our main factors for going with FoxFury after testing were: 1) Brightness, 2) Unbelievable peripheral view, 3) Light weight."
Jim H., USFS Laguna Hotshots (CA)

"I bought the Command 20 headlamp for life-saving use. We have hurricanes in the Pacific and when one hits, my job requires me to be in the command center at the airport. This headlamp is the primary light source for my family to escape out of the deep valley where we live. Your light will save and protect my family. I installed lithium batteries for long life. I trust your light to function perfectly after the hurricane passes. Thanks."

Rob Juba, Honolulu, HI

"The lights are great. Very bright. And the rear red light is good too. One thing I noticed is that some of the light comes straight down to light up my body, while most of the beam heads out to light up what I'm aiming at. I'm not sure if it's intentional, but that's a great feature. You can both see and be seen with one light."

Dave M., Mt. Hood Ski Patrol, Portland, OR

"The Command 20 Tasker Headlamp helps me see the paint imperfections during a paint correction detail. This headlamp illuminates the areas where the polisher is working."

"I deployed to Haiti for disaster response following a hurricane.
From the first 5 minutes through the door of Hopital Adventiste d'Haiti the action begun. Our team doctor and I were rushed to the operating room to help with an emergency C-section and take care of the 30 week premature baby that was imminently delivering. In the US, this delivery would have a team of Neonatal specialists and 50 people to ensure the babies' well-being but not in Haiti. Just a few brave E.R. nurses a Critical Care Adult Doctor, a Team Paramedic and me!

After the initial excitement of the childbirth we were given a orientation of the facility and their standard operating procedures. We were instructed to keep your "HEADLAMP" close because the power goes out regularly! She wasn't kidding!
That same night our crew had the night shift in the Emergency Room. I was tasked with taking care of the 30 week old premature baby we had delivered earlier and set up a makeshift incubator and proceeded to care for the child. All of a sudden, Poof! Out goes the power. I quickly donned my Foxfury headlamp and switched it on and it lit up the room!

I looked around in the crowd and noticed several others were still fussing with their version of a headlamp. I was perfect! I went back to caring for our baby without hesitation.

Throughout the week I practically wore the headlamp everywhere I went after dark. I frequently used the headlamp in the Operating Room. And certainly traveling between buildings of the hospital..

Upon departure, I offered up my light to a well reputed Orthopedic Surgeon that was using a different headlamp on every surgery, day or night to assist in lighting up his field of view. He had light envy! I knew I wanted to leave the light with someone who could do great things while using it. So I did. The light will be handed down from person to person at the Hopital Adventiste d'Haiti and keep the darkness Bright! Thanks again."
Jordan O., EMT-P, Bass Lake Fire Department (CA)

"The Nomad lights have proved to be very useful. They are small enough to easily fit three in the collision Investigation car. They are quick and easy to put up and last for several hours. The light is consistent and well balanced for digital photography. The units are very robust and have performed well in snow and heavy rain. We have seen considerable cost savings, as we have been able to light small crash scenes using just the Nomads, rather than call out our full flood-lighting vehicle and trailer, which requires two officers to operate."
Simon Edwards, Collision Investigation Unit, Gloucestershire Constabulary

________________________________________

"We have had our Nomad out in some pretty harsh conditions already, have dropped it twice, had to scrape mud out of it, used it in high wind and can honestly say there is no explanation for EVER buying a different light. For scene work, command posts, searches and even equipment maintenance, this is the one light every agency needs to have."
Brandi Hodgen, Chasing4Life Disaster Response Team Lead

"We have been amazed at how good the Nomad Primes are. Their rapid deployment, robustness and powerful illumination are great attributes when first arriving at a remote rural scene. Their portable design has eliminated many storage problems and removed unwanted cabling and battery packs. The simple, easy deployment method enables us to react immediately and not waste effort and time trying to deploy a lighting solution before we can safely begin work. We actively use the FoxFury in many of our specialist operations."
CBRN Unit, Humberside Police

"Well, I have had the light on my helmet for a little over a month now...and it is awesome. To have light right where I am looking without having to direct a handheld light or one that is hanging on my coat is great. I have since removed the right angle light that I have always had on my coat which makes my coat much lighter and less bulky. It is easier to crawl and carry other tools now.
I have now had a chance to use it in an interior search in a two-story single family house fire with reports or two children still inside. My officer on the truck has another FoxFury model on his helmet, so we both were able to keep track of each other from a greater distance than normal, because of the amount of light that it puts out. Visibility was zero because of the heavy smoke and heat, but the light held up to heat that eventually drove us out of the bedroom and downstairs. It was unbelievably hot! The light lens was blackened, but cleaned up with some soap and water. I am extremely happy with my light and have had several people say they were going to look into one now that they have seen me and my officer both using them. Thanks for the greatest light I've used."
Kim, Springfield Fire Department (VA)

"I purchased the Performance Fire edition and have been TOTALLY impressed ever since!!! I have been on numerous working fires and MVA's where this light kicked A#$%! Nothing compares to the light it produces...nothing. As a Truck Co. officer I view this as essential equipment for keeping an eye on my interior guys while on the job. The LEDs light up the reflective trim on turnout gear like an explosion of neon...even through smoke. I was cautious about adding additional weight to an already hefty Houston N6A but the battery pack and lamp were balanced so its weight is not noticeable. Also, its large on/off button can be accessed easily with a gloved hand and resists debris build yp. Thanks for making such a great product!
Lt. Dan H., Winter Park Fire Rescue (FL)

The FoxFury Performance Fire headlamp has been a tremendous asset when conducting fire calls during evening hours; especially fire calls involving vehicle accidents. I’m safer and more effective thanks to having extra (and hands-free) lighting while utilizing hand tools. I am also more visible to oncoming drivers on the roads and highways. I’m very pleased and satisfied with your product.
Kent R., Firefighter EMT, South Monterey County Fire Protection Department

"I LOVE my FoxFury headlamp. It cuts through smoke like a hot knife through butter. Everyone on my department and surrounding departments have commented on my headlamp. “That is a sweet light. Where did you get it?” Thanks again for the amazing product."
Blake F., Fremont FD (NC)

"I enjoy the light very much. It makes a big difference in being able to see and not being able to see. I really like the fact that wherever I look I can see versus having to stop and use my hands to point a light in a certain direction. It makes it much easier to work inside a Structure Fire, at an MVC during the night or Medical calls when needed. Just recently I worked an MVC where a driver had ran from the scene and laid down in the woods where there was no lighting. I have attached a picture of me at a structure fire with my light on. I was very impressed when I saw this picture myself. Thanks!"
Joshua L., Granbury VFD (TX)

"We had a fire that I was able to use my Performance Fire on. It did cut through the smoke and fog really well. I liked the broad beam on it. It’s the best headlamp I have ever purchased. So far, I feel that I have really gotten my money's worth out of it."
Chris, Paradise Fire Department (CA)

“"I snow shoe as an winter sport. My FoxFury added has a new dimension to the snow shoe. I am now able to run safely with the extended viewing area. There is plenty of vision area. It is great addition to your backpack for winter events. Here is a picture."
Les G., Milan, NM
PERFORMANCE TASKER

“Well I'm an aircraft mechanic and 99% of the time 2 hands are needed. With your [Performance Tasker S] light now working at night is so much easier. The neck is no longer sore from trying to hold a flashlight. Your light illuminates the entire work area instead of just a spot. I have had other mechanics borrow the light and they love it also and will soon be part of their toolbox also.
Chris G., MN
PRO SHIELD LIGHTS

________________________________________

“The shield light worked great. It was very easy to mount. The mounting system held the light and battery pack in place during multiple, full power shield strikes on heavy bags. The light absolutely floods rooms and as the bad guy on several of the training hits, it is impossible to look at the light in a dark room.
Bill B., Tap Rack Tactical
ROOK CHECKMATE

"I was first to come across a pre-dawn MVA that blocked two north bound traffic lanes. Both vehicles were extensively damaged with no working lights making it nearly impossible to see them in the middle of the road. Witnesses were running from a nearby store to assist the injured. Knowing I needed to slow down rush hour traffic to prevent additional accidents, I grabbed my FoxFury Rook flashlight, engaged the strobe feature, and held it in the direction of on-coming traffic. Drivers in the distance immediately began slowing their vehicles and merging to the center lane. Barely the size of my hand, the Rook was brilliant and helped prevent additional collisions. People 1 mile away were responding to my signal and no one else got hurt. As a former Special Agent and EMT, and avid outdoorsman, I appreciate compact, brilliant and dependable lights. In this case my FoxFury light was a life-saver!
Dave P., MFS, VSM, FBI National Academy, Fayetteville, NC

"This is a great light, not only for just fishing, but hunting, working on vehicles, boats, emergencies and many in-the-dark tasks. It has great brightness and is very simple to operate. I would recommend it to everyone I know. Thanks for the product and I will definitely keep it in reach."
Elias, Corpus Christi, TX
SCOUT TASKER-FIRE

________________________________________

"As a handyman, I am constantly in small dark places such as closets, under bathrooms and kitchen sinks and behind toilets, often with the room lights out. The Scout Tasker-Fire light really lights up all those places, and allows me to get the job done. I can hang the light anywhere I need to because of its small size. It gives off enough light to see clearly.
George W., Carlsbad, CA

"Many times we would find ourselves searching for small components misplaced at camp. In a racing scenario every second counts. FoxFury products lived up to their reputation, providing us with dependable, super powerful lighting solutions. This enabled us to significantly cut down on our time searching in the dark"
Kristine C., UMsolar, Mechanical Engineer
"FoxFury's lighting products were a perfect compliment to our "not messing around" style of Solar Car racing. Whether we're battling a sandstorm in the middle of the Australian Outback or thunderstorms in tornado alley, we don't have time for weak flashlights that die or break under pressure. FoxFury turned night repairs into day repairs when failure was not an option."
Chris H., UMsolar, Lead Power Electrical Engineering

"No idea what to do with these:
"I purchased Command 20 Tactical Headlamp for occasional / emergency outdoor use. However, I have found an unexpected use that is far more valuable to me. I have two poodles which need biweekly ear maintenance (cleaning and plucking of ear hairs). I always found this difficult because I cannot see easily into their ear canals. The soft but strong light that comes from your headlamp has made it FAR easier to do this uncomfortable task because the glare-free light fully illuminates but does not decrease contract. Excellent!
I am also impressed with the quality of the construction and the comfort. Thanks for making a great product with great service!"
Edward, Trumbull, CT

We rode with the lights twice in the last several days. A night ride with our club and the last 20 miles of the Solvang double century. There was quite a bit of interest in the lights, especially on the Solvang ride where at least 100 people saw them in action as we descended through a canyon in the dark on a nasty potholed road. Our field of vision was better so we could move much faster through the hazards at 25-30mph. We have newer style road helmets and the lights easily strap to them. It does require extending the regular strap. I used a standard Velcro pump strap and it works great. Overall the lights worked great aside from blinding other people but they were still happy to be behind us going down the road. We have now ridden next to other cyclists with just about every other light available. Nothing else comes close to creating the field of vision your lights do. You see guys with straight lights weaving around as they try to get some light on the shoulder. Had an encounter like this last Saturday when six pigs that came out of the trees and onto the road about dusk. I was on a fairly steep decent so it created an exciting moment for both me and the pigs. Another thing I forgot to mention is the lights cause quite a reaction as almost everyone, including cars, slow down and stare trying to figure out what the lights are. Cars coming the opposite direction are especially prone to rubbernecking. Who knows, maybe you'll make the cover of a grocery store tabloid."
Steve, Milpitas, CA

"The runtime on the FoxFury is awesome !! The availability of common AA batteries is a plus as well. The design profile of the FoxFury is absolutely perfect for hard hat wearers. I haven't been on a large construction project since receiving the headlamp from you but even on the smaller jobsites my headlamp is getting attention from other trades. The headlamps being used my most construction workers are very cheap and have the "angry" blue output which is terrible for deciphering true colors in the field, which is a MUST for my line of work. I. BIG thumbs up to FoxFury engineers and design team !!"

"Most of the folks in my department use the disposable flashlights on their helmets. As with anything else in this business, there is a great deal of tradition that often gets in the way of progress. Too bad for them. A few other others of the Fire Inspectors I work with also use the Performance Fire Fighter headlamp and they all love them. I now use the PRO III head lamp on my structure helmet for fire investigations and I have the Performance model on my lighter helmet for routine inspections – they both work very well.”
