Instant Armor

5.11 Tactical

Select Carry Sling Pack

5.11 Tactical's Select Carry Pack offers the benefits of both a sling and a pack. It discreetly hides a submachine gun and a pistol. The detachable Pistol Pouch on the chest doubles as a fanny pack and contains a pistol/small electronics holder, an accessory pocket, and a mag/knife holder. The Pistol Pouch can also be purchased separately.

5.11 Tactical

Use the Hot-Pull Tab for instant front pouch access. The padded main compartment safeguards your weapon and includes Hot-Pull Tabs for rapid gun deployment and a web platform interior to attach 5.11 VTAC pouches. The pack features a built in Back-Up Belt System, web platform panels, and a loop-sided Velcro ID panel sized for an LE identifier patch (sold separately). On the back is a pocket for a hydration bladder or-if extra protection is desired-a custom-made ballistic panel.

Baker Ballistics


A scaled down version of the popular BatShield, Baker's PatrolBat offers a solo law enforcement officer extensive ballistic coverage. It defeats multiple impacts from most handgun, shotgun, and pistol caliber sub-machinegun threats, and because it's compact and foldable it can be easily carried in a patrol car in the trunk or passenger seat until it's needed.

Baker Ballistics

The Level IIIA shield allows the primary user to have both hands on standard law enforcement weaponry and to easily transition between handguns and long guns. A distinctive bungee lanyard and hand support system carries weight, enhances balance, and eliminates any tendency for the PatrolBat to rotate. It comes with a standard ID banner showing "POLICE" or "SHERIFF." Options include a patrol seatpak carrier, a soft carry case, a custom ID banner, and an LED light system.
