The Streamlight 88047 ProTac Hl 3 is a high lumen flashlight, bright enough to use as in tactical situations, while still keeping it compact enough to carry in a coat pocket.
It features a programmable switch that allows any user to choose between three different light options, and comes with simple instructions on how to program each one in.
This small, yet extremely durable LED flashlight is one of the best and brightest on the market today.

The ProTac Hl 3 can be compared with its own ProTac Hl model and SureFire’s P3X Fury. The ProTac Hl is similar in body durability and push-button tailswitch with TEN-TAP programmable function, but the high lumen level of the Hl is only 750 lumens, much less than the Hl 3 model’s 1100 lumens.
The P3X Fury is smaller in length and weighs a bit less, making it a more compact tac light, but though its maximum lumen level is 1000, is falls a bit short of the Hl 3, and its low level is only 15 lumens.
If your looking for one of the brightest professional tactical flashlights, the Streamlight ProTac Hl 3 is the best of the three.
You may also want to consider the J5 v2 tactical light. Although it provides a lesser lumen count of 750 lumens, it is much lighter and just as durable.
Streamlight ProTac Hl 3 Review and Overall Rating
The Streamlight ProTac Hl 3 white LED flashlight has earned its 4.5 star rating. With its high lumen level, and durability tested body, the ProTac Hl 3 is a definite contender in the tactical market. It is perfect for anyone performing search and rescue missions, or doing any procedures in the military or police that require a strong light that lasts for hours.
But it is also great for the average person, young or old, just looking for a compact light that will keep you out of the dark when walking to your car, or on an evening stroll in your own neighbourhood.
The ProTac Hl 3 is great for all situations, and will last for years.
