1st Person Tactical View vs Intruder View – Viridian Green Laser

This shows the difference between what you, using Viridian‘s X5L Gen 2 Tactical Strobe Light with Green laser vs an Intruders view. People think there is a “laser that you can track back to the gun” and an intruder can just hide and wait for the person to walk by, then shoot them.

This video shows how hard that would be for an intruder and shows what the tactical advantage truly is with the strobe light and laser.

Disclaimer: It is true there are other tactics such as holding a light in other hand and holding it separate from body to make it even harder for an intruder to discern where you are, but this video is just to show that the strobe light does give a tactical advantage.


As many know, laser sights can be very beneficial; but there is one major flaw… ordinary red lasers can be next to impossible to see in most daylight conditions. The benefit of a green laser is that it is much more visible, allowing for it to be used anytime, day or night, indoors or outdoors, permitting you to track your target quicker and more accurately. Additionally, because green lasers are so much more visible to the human eye, you can actually see a very intimidating visible beam in low-light conditions.

The Difference is Clear

Which is more visible to you? On the left we see a traditional red laser sight, compared to the green Viridian in broad daylight. The lasers were at a distance of 25 feet from the wall.

Why Green Lasers are More Visible

Green is closer to the center of the visible spectrum, at 532 Nanometers, so it’s easier for our eyes to perceive the color vs. a red laser at 635 Nanometers. In fact, a green laser can appear as much as 50 times brighter than the red equivalent and as can be seen from the below charts 532 nm is the ideal wavelength to maximize visibility during day or night.
