Danner's specially designed DFA tactical boots would make a great gift for a SWAT operator. DFA stands for Danner Flight Assault and these boots are designed specifically to assist in fast-roping vertical insertion. They feature Danner's Vertical Insertion Arrestor (VIA) technology, which helps the wearer control his or her descent and protects the boot from abrasion. When the SWAT operator is not fast roping, these boots are excellent for everyday duty. They have Vibram soles for quick acceleration and braking in all directions, moisture wicking linings, and they look sharp. List price for the 8-inch model is $190.
