Dynamic Duo
5.11 Tactical has teamed up with Wiley X to offer cutting-edge eye protection. For 20 years, Wiley X has provided critical eye protection to the FBI, DEA, Army Rangers, Navy SEALS and other elite units.

Luminox SWAT

Standout Timepiece
Luminox Light Technology, applied by hand to each and every watch, makes Luminox watches extremely visible at night. In fact, the technology Luminox uses provides 24/7 luminosity, no matter the conditions, for up to 25 years. Most other watches use luminescent paint or a push-to-light system. Luminox, however, uses proprietary technology — in the past reserved for the military — that makes Luminox watches stand out, literally. Each Luminox watch features tiny gas lights (borosilicate glass capsules), which are always lit, on the hands; hour-markers; and, when necessary, bezels. As a result of this unique technology, Luminox watches are always readable at a glance, no matter the conditions. MSRP $400.
