Type a description for this product here...Cloud Defensive has thought of everything when it comes to the design of their Optimized Weapon Light (OWL) from function to durability. The most obvious improvement is the all-in-one mount, light, and tape switch integration. This allows you to make one purchase and have everything you need to get it on your gun without having to search for compatible mounts and switches. The integrated switch mounts directly to any 1913 picatinny rail and is fully ambidextrous with a reversible design that allows you to easily switch to left hand use. Additionally, the pressure switch features seamless constant on and momentary functionality. The next improvement is slightly less obvious as the tailcap—once removed—acts as a tool with dual functionality. The quick disconnect tailcap is used to install the light onto your handguard and helps to remove the lens if you ever need to replace it. The tailcap with Lug-Lok technology can be removed with just a few degrees of rotation making battery changes a breeze. The Cloud Defensive OWL is a full package with all the features you could ever want in a weapon light.

The Cloud Defensive OWL comes with two 18650 batteries—1 Samsung and 1 Sanyo—with differing qualities between the two. The Samsung offers slightly more output at an estimated 1250 Lumens with a shorter run time of 85-90 minutes whereas the Sanyo features less output with a longer run time of 105-110 minutes. Also included is the Cloud Defensive Digital Battery Charger (CD-CHARGER-B) to ensure your batteries are always topped up. The OWL features an industry leading 100% power for the total runtime and the 50,000 peak candela puts this weapon mounted light at the top of its category.

Constructed from 6061-T6 aluminum with a hardcoat anodized black finish, this Cloud Defensive light is built to last. The durable housing and zero external plugs or sockets make it shockproof, dust proof, and waterproof. Tested down to 200 feet for 24 hours, the OWL has been rated IPX8, so a little rain won’t make a difference. The Internal electronics are made in the United States because Cloud Defensive is invested in making a product out of the best components possible and even back the OWL with a lifetime warranty.

Cloud Defensive has come a long way in a short amount of time since they got their start around a diner table with an idea to optimize weapon lights and how they are used. Now they are manufacturing their own light system, as well as accessories for other popular weapon lights on the market with an emphasis on improving what exists without reinventing the wheel. Effective weapon lights and accessories combined with strict quality control and fast response times equals a company you can have confidence in.

    Outstanding performance

    Posted by Daniel on 10th Apr 2021

    I was hesitant to spend this much on a weapon light but it was worth it. The build quality is top notch and the light performance is second to none. Definitely brighter then anything the “AFT” has...

    Excellent quality

    Posted by Alex Van Hoff on 8th Apr 2021

    Quick shipping, excellent price. OWL light is built for war. Highly recommend. Takes up quite a bit of rail so make sure you get some micro backups, magpul mbus were a little too big.

    Best light hands down

    Posted by Aarron D. on 29th Dec 2020

    Awesome light, very ergonomic, built like a tank, 50,000 candela mounts strait to Picatinny rail. To bad BOTACH raised the price from 300 to 350 or I’d buy 2 more

    This light is a must, it's built to last and the beam of light is the best ever. I showed others how bright it is at night outside and they could not believe it! So glad I bought it!
