I used to work for flir and only got a limited amount of exposure to the thermal imaging products. Primarily supported laser designator and laser range finding products for their large gimble systems. I did check out a couple different thermal monoculars though. Their newer products are pretty awesome especially the higher end stuff.

I'd say number one in the industry.  Most all Fire Departments use them.

Military has loved FLIR but most of their civilian products cost a lot of $$$$'s.

Look up the reviews on Predator Masters. Kirsh uses/used their thermals.
When you align yourself with people who beat up grandma's with strollers your opinions are from that of a psychopath. Jaded and worthless..

I use one daily for work and would not use another brand. Hands down the leader in the industry.

took a class/tour at the Billrica Mass. location many years ago with military. Great stuff but as said, you get what you pay for. military grade stuff is $pendy and not in play. IR is wonderful and adjustability/ temp sensitivity is awesome on the "good stuff". you would be surprised at this technology used behind the magic curtains... for a coyote night scope, they would work well, even blood trail tracking with any temp delta (still warmer than surrounding/ground). full disclosure, i have not used the civilian sold scopes but have used some of the hand held devices for work environments. great stuff...

My wife uses on on her cell phone to look at her bee hives. Unbelievable. We can see the neighbors Cows at over 300 yds super easy to use. Download the App and plug it in.
