Haix has announced that it has selected three tactical law enforcement teams for a wear test of its tactical footwear.
The selected teams are: Lancaster County (PA) SERT, San Francisco SWAT, and Seattle SWAT. In order to qualify for the wear test, the teams had to be from agencies with 100 or more sworn officers. The teams will provide five to 10 officers for the testing.
Participating officers will receive their choice of Haix tactical boots, including the GSG9-S, Black Eagle Tactical 2.0 GTX High, or Black Eagle Athletic 2.0 T High Side Zip.
The GSG9-S is a non-slip tactical boot developed for its stealth qualities and fast roping features. It is waterproof and chemical resistant.
The Black Eagle Tactical 2.0 GTX High is lightweight, slip resistant, breathable, and waterproof.
The Black Eagle Tactical 2.0 T High Side Zip offers the fit of a lace-up boot with the convenience of a side zipper. Its lightweight microfiber design is highly breathable yet durable.
Participants will wear the boots for one to two months and are expected to put them through their paces.
At the end of the test, participants will send completed feedback forms by Nov. 10. The feedback forms will be used for an article that will be published in POLICE Magazine and on PoliceMag.com.
