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 Nitecore Ui2 Charger 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.

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.
Ratings & Reviews
Very Impressed by design and brightness
I rarely come across products that impress me with their design. Today I received the Cloud Defensive OWL and it has really impressed me with the design. I like how the tail cap has a socket milled into it for attaching to the rail. And being able to run on the left or right side by switching the head and tail cap is a breakthrough design. On top of that it has a very good throw that lights up targets better than my surefire m600df. I ran it for 30 minutes straight and it never got hot to the touch like some of my other lights. I feel this will be my new go to light on long guns.
all i can say is wow
