We got the opportunity to check out the new ultra compact Flir Breach PTQ136 last weekend. Man, this thing is SO small and works amazingly well!  This may be the ultimate spot and stalk thermal or like our buddy was using it, for LE use. So freaking cool.

Having a very small handheld thermal for being on the move is fantastic.  This thing takes a CR123 battery and will get a couple hours runtime and weighs less than 8oz!  You can even mount this on a helmet mount, oh and it records both video and still images.
