Cloud Defensive Updates Website – Optimized Weapon Light Shipping Soon

Thursday, January 3rd, 2019

Cloud Defensive has updated their website in anticipation of the impending release of their Optimized Weapon Light.


The light offers about 1,250 lumens and is IPX8 rated for a depth of 200 feet for 24 hours.

Picatinny compatible, the body is manufactured from 6061-T6 aluminum and hard coat Type III anodized.


Thanks to their patent-pending Lug-Lok technology, the light head and a tailcap are removable without traditional threading for quick swaps and battery changes. This also makes the light ambidextrous as it can be mounted to either side of the rail.

Additionally, the Field-Serviceable Lens can be swapped out using a tool built into the tailcap.

Interestingly, they rely on a 18650 battery as a power source and state that use of a CR123 battery will result in void of the warranty.

The OWL is offered in Black, Urban Grey or Olive Drab Green.
