“The Waypoint 300 not only features extreme brightness, but also includes a beam that reaches over 1,000 meters,” said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F.

It’s the ideal spotlight for boating, camping and other outdoor pursuits, as well as for first responder and law enforcement applications.”
