As tactical situations demand the most out of a team, it's important to find gear that will help get the job done, ensuring clear communication, comfort, and resilience.
The evolution of tactical headsets has been a significant one. Within the past couple of years alone, we've seen great improvements in technology that affect some of the most important functions of a good unit: strong sound quality, comfort, and resilience.
Advanced communications systems for tac teams now include throat mics, nearly invisible wireless earpieces, and everything in between.
Columbine is a vivid example of what happens during a tactical operation when communications break down. It and 9/11 are also strong examples of why first responders need radios that can talk to personnel from other agencies.
