LOVE IT! Not only is it well constructed, TOUGH and sharp lookin', it really is a great writing instrument.
You'd better get TWO 'cause you'll want to give one to a friend as a gift.
I'm enjoying my SWAT tactical pen it writes well and the Contours of the pen allows me to hold on to the pen with a good grip. The clip is strong it stays in my pocket securely so I know it's going to be there when I need it.
Reliability is key for my EDC.
Solid product, great price and comes with refills! Bought 3 different types!
Great product, solid, well built, and works Great! Shipping and receiving was very prompt able to get last minute order in time for Holidays! Thanks Atomic Bear. You have a Life Time Customer. (Already looking at your other products)

I like this pen for two reasons. One is that the clip sits high up so the pen rises lower in your pocket and less likely to snag it on things. And two, I like that the cap will snap onto the other end when using it for writing. A few tactical pens don’t do that and it is annoying. This is my go to pen and recommend it for others.
Love the pen it feels great in the hand. I get alot of compliments on it at work from co workers and customers. As great as it is I do wish the writing end of the pen was the same circumference as the thicker end. Making this pen identical on both ends would be a solid 10 out of 10. The writing end is a little thin for my large hands. Even so, I still highly recommend the Atomic Bear, I'm glad I ordered two and will order more as needed.
This Tac Pen is really strong! It can break glass and I'm sure it'll be a deal breaker for anyone trying to attack me! I highly recommend this and other Atomic Bear products!
Great pen. Great price. Excellent self defense tool when a non lethal response is required.
Solid tactical pen...do not try to take this on a plane without checking it in a bag!
This is my second review. My first Atomic Bear SWAT was lost in an alfalfa field so this time I ordered two of them.
As before they arrived quickly, well packaged, and in excellent condition. Fit and finish are always great and these pens, though a little thick, are excellent writers.
These pens index well for glass breaking or self defense if necessary and the tungsten carbide business end seems up to the task.
I also own a Gerber Inpromptu and love that pen but it is worth mentioning that the SWAT gets far more pocket/EDC time.
It's an excellent pin I didn't think I would get used to it being bigger than the pins I'm used to, but I did I even bought a second one. Very good quality definitely.
I’d like to start by saying this pen feels great and has amazing quality features, however, that being said, the writing aspect isn’t one of them. Every time I write it fades out after about 5 seconds of writing. I must say, I don’t feel bad at all about this purchase as I am very pleased by its quality and durability.
Nice piece of gear.
So far I am enjoying the Atomic Bear SWAT
It is lighter than my Gerber Inpromptu and more ergomic for striking. It affords a good grip and looks cool to boot.
It has been to work daily, on the road a bit, and reported for jury duty once with no issues.
At this point I cannot comment on which refills work best because I haven’t needed to replace the original cartridge.
Packaging was good, shipping was fast, and customer service appears top notch.
It writes well for its weight and has started a couple of interesting conversations already.
On the whole, it is $15 well spent.
And the lifetime warranty isn’t bad either.
Great job AB!
Well worth the price.
I give the SWAT a four star rating, but on balance I really do like this pen, am happy to have one, and am already considering ordering more for myself and for friends and family come the holidays.
It is an awesome piece of kit to have on hand.
Fit and finish are excellent.
Styling is on point- cool and a little on the tactical side sans much the ubiquitous “tacticool” vibe.
It writes well, and I LOVE Athe fact that it’s not limited to just the expensive Rite in the Rain and Fisher Space Pen refill cartridges. So you can keep a few or those on hand for camping and hunting trips and rainy days while using less expensive refills for everyday use. That makes this pen a true EDC piece for most of us, especially those of us buying at this pen’s price point.
The glass breaker is tungsten, ‘nuff said.
The thumb index on the cap is a great and well thought out detail.
I like the clip. The style and size and heft of it. It is about the only “giveaway” an aware stranger could possibly notice on a shirt pocket yet it’s still subtle enough to be under the radar to the vast majority of passers by. It just looks cool.
Online tutorials on how to use their pens defensively.
And it arrived a couple of days earlier than expected.
My coworkers and a couple of friends like this pen.
The downsides: the business end of the pen is always exposed which may wreck a work shirt pocket or two. It’s a fair trade for always having the business end at the ready in case of a sudden need, but it is worth considering up front.
It is heavy for a pen. Great for checking boxes and signing invoices and hitting down the occasional note but if you’re into journaling or writing long love letters by hand then use a normal pen or get carpal tunnel.
I would LOVE a version of the SWAT in colors like red, grey; blue; FDE; etc and it I could dream a bolt action version of this would be on offer from Atomic Bear:
On the whole I really enjoy this pen. It’s tough, cool, functional, well designed, and good to have on hand.
Lastly it’s worth mentioning that Atomic Bear appears to be a very customer oriented company at this time. Let’s hope it stays that way:
Pleasantly Surprised! great quality product and I never leave home without it. Reasonably priced as well
Does what it's supposed to.
All you need.
Already have one very useful and works well to write with. I fear no evil because my pen is near.

SWAT Pen - The Tactical Pen that Can Take a Beating
Very good pen
It is very good pen and well made of quality material. Writing is great and it comes with spare refill inside the box. I am happy with this purchase.

A great tactical pen and excellent service
The pen is sturdy and useful. The clip is so much better than any I’ve seen before - stronger and able to clip on a thicker service. Strong point and a nice feel to write with.
Excellent prompt service.
I used a pen like this when I was active duty overseas. Now that I’m not in any longer, it’s nice to have something just as durable. I’ve never left the house without my pen and I never have to worry about it breaking or leaking in my pocket. Amazing product, keep it up!
Great self defense tool
Save a life
What a great tool to have! Of course I have one in the car, but a useful pen, that may save a life, perfect!
The pen is built tough and fulfilled is purpose.
Solid, lightweight, dependable construction. High impact tip is a must for glass breaking as well as self defense. The is no way in Hades would I want to be on the receiving end of a strike of this pen. Ink is smooth, the pen writes really well, the balance is better than most I've tried. Superior pen at a budget prepper price. The grip is nice to hold and the thumb point is in my opinion slip proof which offers more reliability in striking and the confidence needed. The academy course in my opinion, is a must watch to fully understand this pen, it's mechanics, mindset, self defense tactics, and practice drills. I simply cannot recommend this pen enough. I'll be placing another order tomorrow for an additional pen and a flashlight as well.
Great Pen, Better Customer Service
I bought this pen about a year ago. it's held up great, really conservative on ink (I haven't made it through the two cartridges that came with it yet). It writes great. It's heavy, sturdy, and just all around solid. That said, the clip started to stretch out a bit, mostly because I carry this thing everywhere and jeans are a bit on the thick side. Messaged the company, told em what was going on, they took care of the problem....on a SUNDAY.
Excellent group of folks, all around.
After reviewing this pen and using to write daily, I have concluded that the more I use this writing instrument, the more that I am confident that the structure build of this pen will last for many years to come. Should I experience any issues pertaining to this writing instrument I will contact Atomic Beard.
A great overall pen. Strong
A great overall pen. Strong and sturdy, and will take a beating. Great customer service as well!
Only complaint is how long they take to ship, but it's not terrible
I have owned several tactical pens. This one writes well, is the most durable, and has an amazingly aggressive tip. Oh yeah, it looks really cool, too.

Best pen but be careful
Best pen and very useful at work too opening boxes and disassembling boxes.. the clothing clip is now tight but I won’t risk it hanging in my pants sidepocket again.. bought a tactical bag with a pen holder outside and put it there.. the tactical bag delays drawing a bit though.. you can draw it faster from a pants pocket if ever you encounter an ugly situation
The Pen I purchased is of great quality and low priced and This is the 3rd one I have purchased.
Great product misleading lifetime warranty activation.
The pen is great however you have people get to your web site to activate lifetime warranty just to find out you get no where. What gives?
I like your product your we3b site leaves some to be desired.
