Police Product Test: 5.11 Tactical Light for Life

No batteries and a 90-second charge time set this light apart from the rest.

S.O. Tech

Go Bag

I have seen lots of bags for duty since I joined the military decades ago. Back then we had the A.L.I.C.E. Pack, a butt bag, if you were lucky you could procure a helmet bag, and of course for all of your big gear there was the ever popular "duffle bag." These bags carried gear, but not really in a manner I'd call close at hand and ready when needed.

James Cragg, the head honcho of Special Operations Technologies (aka S.O. Tech), knows first hand that some gear for the troops leaves something to be desired. He is a major and an Army Special Operations Team Leader. S.O. Tech manufactures high-quality gear designed to meet the mission needs of breachers, medics, snipers, and anyone who can use a general gear bag.


S.O. Tech Go Bag

The Go Bag is one of S.O. Tech's thoughtfully designed creations. It's made of durable military-grade Cordura and shaped like a cylinder so it will fit behind the seat in an armored vehicle or between the seats of a cruiser. This shape allows the bag to be quickly extricated should you have to grab and go.

With plenty of storage space in this bag, you shouldn't have to leave anything behind. Two outer pouches will each accommodate up to four AR-15 magazines while two small concealed zippered pockets secure small items. The main body, which measures 20 x 6 x 6 inches, opens with dual zippers and has a sewn-in pouch perfect for a slim hydration bladder. If all these pockets won't carry your gear there are numerous MOLLE straps on the bag to facilitate attaching your choice of accessory pouches. And when you have to carry the Go Bag for extended tours of duty you will appreciate the wide padded shoulder strap.

The Go Bag is but one of the quality pieces of equipment from S.O. Tech handily capable of serving you on the streets, slopes, water, or in The Sandbox.

Our Security Department purchased 8 of the 5.11 lights. Three have malfunctioned when the on/off switch would not turn the light off and had to be sent back. 5.11's service was great and the lights are being replaced.
