This is the UK issued Infrared (IR) model and is invisible to the naked eye.

Used condition, supplied complete with length adjustable elastic strap with quick release buckle.

Simple twist on/off feature.

Up to 250 hours of operational light per set of batteries.

Lifetime LED, rated for 100,000 hours of use.

Operates in extreme temperatures, these will function at -40c and up to +50c.

If fitted to a helmet without cover, or high cut models, such as the MICH, MACH 1 or Gen Tex, the band can be prone to slipping. Such slipping is likely to result in loss of the Mocking Bird. To prevent this remove the band and fit a short length of Velcro in its place, glue the other side of the Velcro to the helmet and the Mocking Bird is secure. This would also work with fabric helmet covers, clothing and other equipment.
