Petzl Strix IR

The Petzl Strix IR is a specialist military head torch designed to work with ARC-Ops helmet mounts and provide a range of flexible lighting options including two visible colour and infra red modes. Also included is a head mount for use without a helmet and the MOLLE rail adaptor.

The lighting unit on the Strix features two directions of rotation allowing for 180° of horizontal and 120° of vertical adjustment. This means you can always have the light where you need it most. The twin adjustment knobs allow for easy and intuitive selection of lighting modes including beam spread adjustment. The adjustment knows are designed to operate silently and be easy to use whilst wearing gloves. They are also designed for absolute durability in common whith the rest of the unit. This is probably the toughest lighting solution we stock.

  • visible color lighting: red (18 h, 1 lm, 3 m), green (15 h, 1.5 lm, 3 m), blue (15 h, 0.6 lm, 2 m)

Reviewer: Michael , Southport  

This is a specialist torch best suited for Military/Police or search and rescue applications. I field tested the torch over the weekend and found it very simple to use. The head torch has green and red light emitting modes which work well for discreet map reading and other tasks. The infra red mode worked extremely well and I tested it with night vision equipment. This allowed identification from a fair distance both in permanent and pulse mode. Another aspect I liked about the torch is the versatility of its mounting capabilities.
