The star feature of this light is the charging method. Instead of some proprietary charging cord or cradle, the ProTac HL USB gets its juice from a standard micro-USB cord.
Made of machined steel and finished with a smooth anodizing that TruGlo calls a "Fortress Finish," the new TFX sights feature a longer sight radius and a more compact design with rounded edges.
Trijicon's MRO provides a single 2 MOA red dot as a point of aim and is rated for up to five years of life on a single CR2032 lithium battery.
In a market dominated by true "heavy boots" the new Oakley Assault Boots were a crossbreed of boot and athletic shoe, meaning they were as durable as any good combat boot but comfortable right out of the box. Not satisfied with well-enough, Oakley recently redesigned the original Assault and shaved off a ton of weight in the process.
Made of Angel Armor's high-quality ballistic material, the plate is rigid enough to take a solid blow but provides just a bit of flex for comfort.
These durable Vertx tactical pants perform on the range and in training but look good enough for office wear.
TSSI has joined the bail-out bag army with its Active Response bag. The main features of any rapid response bag are here for sure, with the addition of a couple of very smart improvements over the traditional nylon pack.
Simple in form and function, the Dara Holsters IWB Kydex holster is molded around the gun from a single piece of thin yet rigid Kydex sheeting.
Bravo Company Manufacturing is an established maker of super high-quality AR-15 rifles, parts, and accessories. Based in Wisconsin, this good-old American company known for its "add-ons" is quickly becoming a varsity player in the duty-grade weapons game.
This could easily be mistaken for a music earbud and makes this a great system for undercover work. The microphone can be activated by either the remote push-to-talk switch or the main button on the radio itself.
Made exclusively for Glock model 42 and 43 pistols and weighing in at a mere 36 grams, the TLR-6 packs a lot of bang in a small package.
Tru-Spec has added a few new packs for the everyday carry (EDC) market to its 2015 product lineup. The new additions, dubbed the Stealth and Trek Sling packs, are capable of managing a lot of gear in an optimally sized package.
Blauer's popular ArmorSkin outer vest recently got a tactical makeover. The new ArmorSkin TacVest takes the affordability and comfort of the original uniform-styled ArmorSkin and adds the tactical versatility of MOLLE webbing and reinforced shoulder pads.
Before you stuff a pistol in your waistband and head out the door there are a ton of things you first need to square away in your mind.
I must not have been the only one wishing for a 9mm single-stack Glock because the G43 was unveiled just a few short months ago and it has been an instant hit.
The Two-Wire Patrol Kit's sound quality is good, the earpiece is comfortable, and I'd recommend this to anyone looking for light, high-quality comms at a great price.
EDC stands for Every Day Carry and, just like the name implies, this Vertx bag is meant to follow you everywhere.
The 2015 Tahoe PPV is Chevy's first pursuit-rated SUV to come with four-wheel drive. In addition, the exterior and interior have been redesigned, and the engine is now a 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 with standard direct injection, Active Fuel Management, and continuously variable valve timing.
Chevy's Tahoe patrol vehicle is fast and nimble, it corners well, and it has a good turning radius. It's also comfortable, offers a higher vantage point than a patrol sedan, and can carry a lot more gear than a car. So I couldn't wait to test and evalulate the new 2015 Tahoe PPV with four-wheel-drive.
Team Wendy's new Exfil Search and Rescue, or "SAR," tactical helmet is designed specifically for those in the technical rescue field; firefighters, medics, mountaineers, and other lifesavers who answer the call when man and nature collide.
