Roger served over 20 years with the NYPD, where he spearheaded the NYPD’s first dedicated facial recognition unit. The unit has conducted more than 8,500 facial recognition investigations, with over 3,000 possible matches and approximately 2,000 arrests.

Although the folks at BlackHawk do not promote their Warrior Wear Operations Jacket for covert operations, after months of use, I have found it to be one of the finest quality overt/covert jackets I have ever owned.

In the last few years UA has introduced product lines in such diverse areas as hunting, working out, and casual wear. Now Under Armour also has a line of tactical wear, which includes the Generation II Tactical Pants.
The Arcturus carries on the legacy that Insight Tech-Gear has built over the last few years. I like the light and carry it daily; I can't give it a higher endorsement than that.
