Police Product Test: Forum Industries Patrol Jacket

April 15, 2014

Forum Industries is doing some wonderful things with Gore fabrics and its latest line of protective duty clothing is nothing short of impressive. My example was the company's R521 Windstopper Patrol Soft Shell in the "IKE," or above-the-belt cut.

Police Product Test: Tactical Impulse LE-1 Flashlight Kit

April 1, 2014

So what's so special? It's not so much the light itself, but the LE-1's system of accessories Tactical Impulse has designed to go with it that make this a true light "multi-tool."

Police Product Test: Team Wendy Bump Helmet

March 28, 2014

A good helmet is an essential piece of kit for any tactical operator. The helmets of today are lighter, stronger, provide better protection, are customizable, and are comfortable. Team Wendy's Exfil LTP Tactical Bump Helmet fits all of these criteria.

Police Product Test: Casio G-shock GW-9400 Rangeman Watch

February 11, 2014

Casio's GW-9400 isn't as much a watch as it is a wrist-mounted computer. It has the standard clock and stopwatch functions found on almost all G-Shocks but raises the bar by adding an altimeter, barometer, compass, thermometer, alarm, countdown timer, and a memory function to log all of this info should you need it.

Police Product Test: Eye of Mine Eye-View 1080HD Video Sunglasses

January 17, 2014

Like their predecessor, these glasses come with interchangeable clear and polarized grey lenses and have a high-definition video camera built into the bridge of the nose.

Police Product Test: Streamlight TLR-2G Weapon-mounted Light

November 26, 2013

For duty use the TLR-2G is hard to beat. It will fit most modern service weapons and there are a variety of duty holsters designed to fit around it.

Police Product Test: TruGlo Tru-See Targets

October 24, 2013

I like these new TruGlo Tru-See targets. They take some of the guesswork and haphazard engineering out of the precision shooting process.

Police Product Test: Fechheimer-Vertx ColdBlack Polo and Phantom LT Pants

October 24, 2013

Vertx's mission is to produce "functionally advanced clothing for the operational athlete." For this review Vertx sent me a few pairs of Phantom LT pants and one ColdBlack polo shirt.

Police Product Test: SureFire M600 Ultra Scout

September 25, 2013

The previous model had a maximum output of 120 lumens, the new one produces 500 lumens. That means the new Ultra Scout cannot only clear a room, but also light up a target at 100 yards.

Police Product Test: Micro-Times Attic-Clear Camera Pole

August 27, 2013

The Attic-Clear iPhone/Smartphone Camera Pole is not a broomstick, but a well-made piece of tactical equipment that is well suited for the job at hand.

Police Product Test: 5.11 Tactical STRYKE Pants

August 27, 2013

Right out of the bag I was impressed with the STRYKE Pants. The fit and finish is outstanding and the ripstop material is soft yet sturdy. The stitching, pockets, closures are very clean and obviously a step above basic BDUs.

Product Test: TatJacket's Sling Band-It

August 1, 2013
You may know the frustration of having your sling get caught up on something when you need to deploy quickly. I want to gather up the sling and secure it in a nice, neat bundle and deploy it efficiently. TatJacket's Sling Band-It solves this annoyance.

Police Product Test: Blue Force Gear Ten-Speed Chest Rig

July 23, 2013

Blue Force Gear's new Ten-Speed Chest Rig takes the simple yet highly functional concept of the load-bearing chest rig and not only makes it more versatile, but sheds unnecessary weight in the process.

Police Product Test: Rocky S2V Vented Military Duty Boots

May 28, 2013

The S2V is an 8.5-inch leather and 1,000-denier Cordura nylon boot with a proprietary Vibram sole that is made in the USA. Rocky's Dri-Lex material and Lycra spandex line the boot, which allows for a snug fit while wicking moisture away from your skin.

Police Product Test: Blade-Tech Looper Gun Belt

May 28, 2013

The Blade-Tech Reinforced Looper Series gun belt is clearly aimed at fitting the needs of the plainclothes police officer. Yes, it has the same Kydex used in holsters and it serves the same purpose; it makes the belt rigid.

Product Test: Nutshellz Groin Protector

May 1, 2013
The Nutshellz is a groin protector on steroids. It's made with several layers of ballistic material to obtain the NIJ Level II rating encased in a durable rubber material with a carbon fiber outer skin.
