Police Product Test: Bullet Blocker Gabriel Ballistic Base Layer

May 6, 2016

Bullet Blocker's claims of heat dissipation and a more secure fit both rang true and I can certainly appreciate the benefits of the Gabriel design in any law enforcement setting.

Police Product Test: 5.11 Tactical Apex Tactical Pants

May 4, 2016

Made with what 5.11 has dubbed its Flex-Tac stretch canvas material, the Apex pants are solidly built yet have enough stretch to make them very comfortable.

Police Product Test: First Tactical Tactix BDU Pants and Shirt and 8" Boot

April 8, 2016

Aside from the obvious quality and design, the thing that stood out most to me about the Tactix BDUs was their fit. The boots were surprisingly light and comfortable.

Police Product Test: Streamlight TLR-1 HPL

March 8, 2016

The TLR-1 HPL is designed specifically for long gun use and does a fantastic job of lighting up targets at what I would consider a reasonable engagement distance and beyond.

Police Product Test: Vertx 37.5 Combat Shirt

March 7, 2016

The new combat shirt features Vertx and Fechheimer's proprietary dual fabric blend they call "37.5 Active Particle Technology."

Police Product Test: PlastiCase Nanuk 990 Rifle Case

February 29, 2016

Considering the sizable investment we make in our duty weapons it only makes sense that we protect them with something better than a $20 nylon bag. This case is a nice option that will more than do the job.

Police Product Test: Streamlight ProTac HL USB Flashlight

January 28, 2016

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.

Police Product Test: TruGlo TFX Tritium/Fiber Optic Sights for Glock 43

January 28, 2016

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.

Police Product Test: Angel Armor Truth Series Trauma Plate

November 30, 2015

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.

Police Product Test: Vertx VTX1100 Core Casual Pants

November 17, 2015

These durable Vertx tactical pants perform on the range and in training but look good enough for office wear.

Police Product Test: TSSI TacOps Active Response Bag

October 30, 2015

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.

Police Product Test: Dara Holsters IWB Kydex Glock 42 Holster

October 28, 2015

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.

Police Product Test: Streamlight TLR-6 Weapon Light

September 30, 2015

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.

Product Test: Tactical Command Industries Two-Wire Patrol Kit

June 30, 2015

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.

Police Product Test: Vertx EDC Courier Bag

June 30, 2015

EDC stands for Every Day Carry and, just like the name implies, this Vertx bag is meant to follow you everywhere.

Police Product Test: Nightstick NSR-9744XL and TAC-560XL Flashlights

May 31, 2015

Nightstick's NSR-9744XL wasn't as hefty as other full-size flashlights but it was just as handy and every bit as bright. On its highest setting the TAC-560XL blasts 800 lumens over 205 meters. That kind of power out of a light this small is rare.

Police Product Test: Casio G-Shock Military Black Watches

April 28, 2015

As with any G-Shock, durability is the name of the game. The Military Black line features excellent shock- and magnetic resistance, as well as being water tight up to 200 meters. Additionally, you get a chronograph, countdown timer, calendar, world time, and alarm; all nicely lit by a red LED. Basically everything you need and nothing you don't.

Police Product Test: Chinook Medical Gear Life Kit

March 31, 2015

The Life Kit contains the bare essentials for quick treatment of major bleeding or penetrating wounds, all in a super-compact package that can be carried in any cargo pocket.

Police Product Test: Tru-Spec 24-7 Hoodie and Ascent Pants

March 31, 2015

Sometimes we have the need to carry a few essential pieces of gear without advertising our mission to the world. Tru-Spec's 24-7 line of apparel is aimed squarely at this need and offers ultimate comfort with excellent utility.

Police Product Test: Oakley Det Cord and Tombstone Eyewear

February 26, 2015

Oakley recently took a giant leap into the future with the debut of its Prizm lens technology. These lenses, made from a patented formula of lens tints, are designed from the ground up to make the absolute best shooting and tactical glasses to date.
