Working in Iraq on convoys at night and we have to stop on the road due to IED's being cleared, we are told to keep watch. Well it's pitch black so maybe you can see 15 yrds or so. Has anyone tried and liked the Yukon brand or the Night Owl. These seem to be the most popular on the net. Any input would be a help.

Issue us GEN 3 night vision. Nope. Hell we're lucky if the all the trucks have ballistic door panels. Sometimes you side door protection consist of a case of water or MRE's placed on the passenger seat. We do have level 4 body armor though.
