JOHN CONNOR G2G GOOD TO GO GEAR X5L Gen 2 Laser LiGht Combo If you’ve had the opportunity to try VGL’s rail-mounted Gen 1 X5L daylight-visible green laser and taclight, maybe you wondered could they possibly make it even smaller and more powerful? Well, they did. The X5L Gen 2 teams a 154-lumen taclight, which automatically boosts to 180 lumens on strobe mode, with a 5mW green laser in a unit only 1.37x1.45x2.84" and weighing just 3.3 ounces. The Gen 1’s light and laser were stacked; on Gen 2 they’re side-by-side. Gen 2 uses a longer-lasting CR123A, which loads from the front, so you don’t have to dismount the X5L to change batteries. Controls on Gen 1 used four buttons, while six “standard” modes plus deep programming is done with two buttons on the Gen 2. With a continuous or strobe light and steady or pulsing laser, the X5L Gen 2 is one tough, terrific tool. Shop around! Priced from $309 to $399.

What you don’t see are two deep, roomy interior pockets with elasticized holster loops to place fullsized handguns right about where a shoulder holster would position them. Behind the rear “locker loop,” is a vertical tunnel running down to belt-level inside, for plastic restraints and comm cables. There are elasticized loops for magazines, pepper spray or comms in both handwarmer pockets too. Woolrich gave one of their best-selling civilian casual jackets a tactical makeover, producing a toasty, non-restricting plainclothes and off-duty “packin’ jacket.” The shell is tough cotton-twill lined with polyester sherpa fleece; sleeves have 60-gram Arctic Insulation under smooth nylon. The pockets are big enough to afford full-fist grips and easy drawing, but made so they won’t flare open to reveal contents. Offered in dark wheat (shown) or dark shale, it’s a bargain with a MSRP of $129.99.
