The Blauer B.Cool polo shirt is a perfect addition to your tactical wardrobe. These comfortable polo shirts are made of lightweight, antimicrobial, moisture-wicking polyester and mesh fabric designed to provide optimum breathability and cool, stay-dry comfort all day long. Crafted to stretch when you stretch, the B.Cool polo shirt offers a loose, athletic cut for a full range of motion. From the mesh side panels to the professional rib knit collar and sleeve cuffs, double pen sleeve pocket and center mic tab, Blauer thought of everything when designing this shirt for the law enforcement professional. But one of the most popular features of this tactical shirt is the split-tail design, which helps the shirt stay tucked in to provide a professional image at all times. MSRP $44.99.
Despite best efforts, when crowds get riled up, there’s always the potential for close contact between officer and rioters. In those cases, added protection, such as Carbon-Tek fiber knuckle gloves, can make a difference. The Vector 1 Riot Control gloves were created with such circumstances in mind, as well as high-risk inmate movements. In addition to the molded hard shell, the knuckles and wrists have foam-injected padding, the palms are reinforced, the stitching is double reinforced and the lining is made from a bonded breathable tricot material. MSRP $78.50.
Standing, kneeling or prone, protecting your knees is always important in any physical situation. The Vortex Gel-Core Hybrid Knee Pads were created to provide wearers with the utmost comfort. More specifically, they were designed to support individuals engaged in law enforcement and military activities. The “hybrid” comes from combining both high- and low-density materials for ultimate cushion. The GEL foam core contains two shock-absorbing gels that help withstand body weight, which also ups the comfort factor. MSRP $68.
Tactical team members ask more from their feet than the average person, and keeping your feet fatigue-free and comfortable can be a challenge. Danner Boots’ Desert TFX Rough-Out GTX Military-Grade Boots, approved by the U.S. Army, offer protection and comfort that last. Made for combat soldiers, the Desert TFX is constructed of a lightweight TERRA FORCE X® system to provide rugged support and stability in stressful situations. These boots are 100% waterproof, breathable Gore-Tex and are available with or without Thinsulate® insulation. The outer appearance is attractive, quick-drying and built to resist abrasions and tears.
Serving as a premium backpacking boot, the Crater Rim’s profile and construction mirror the immensely popular Danner OCH. With outsole and internal materials that reflect the needs of the rugged outdoorsman, this boot was specifically designed to tackle the most challenging terrain. The Vibram Bifida outsole delivers premium traction in the harshest environments, while a polyurethane footbed and Gore‐Tex lining ensure a comfortable and 100% waterproof yet breathable boot.
Danner took its toughest full-grain leather and rip-stop nylon upper, added a polyurethane footbed and a deeply cushioned midsole, and dubbed it the Danner Kinetic. The Kinetic is tough on the outside but soft on the inside, and thanks to its lightweight build, it’s incredibly agile and responsive. LEOs will also appreciate the easily polished surfaces that are also easily cleaned after trekking through inclement weather or a foot chase. Some models feature a convenient side zipper for easy entry and exit. The Kinetic line includes six- or eight-inch-tall versions, tipping the scales at 50 to 53 ounces. MSRP $150-180.
