Fear not, for the private sector is ready to make our dreams of impossible missions into reality. If your wallet needs lightening, you can get yourself kitted out with some top of the range, non-lethal weaponry, surveillance gadgets, and other awesome bits of tech than Jason Bourne would be proud of.

Bresser Night Vision Device 

Remember the Bond movie where Q gave 007 a sack of carrots? Nah, us neither, so it seems our parents were having us on when they said carrots helped us see in the dark. To get you through this disappointment, you can get a super cool night vision monocular from Bresser and pull the curtain back on the night. 

Included is an infrared illuminator, meaning you can even sight your way through pitch blackness. The housing of the single-eyed device is water-resistant and the night vision works off a 5×50 digital standard. It’s easy to get to grips with with a brightness adjuster that’s built in and you can zoom in up to 5x magnification so you can not only see through the dark but into the distance too. All you need to keep it running are two AA batteries, so there’s not big outlays further down the line.
