This shield’s comfort-molded cradle handle not only allows for ambidextrous operation, but also stability and control. The lightweight Peacekeeper 2036C clear riot shield measures 20 inches by 36 inches with a 4 mm shatter-resistant polycarbonate shield that should not spall or craze upon impact. The materials also meet ASTM standards for flammability and thermal and mechanical properties. Finally, rounded edges protect against strain. MSRP $240.
There’s Kevlar and there’s GORE-TEX, and then there’s the combination of the two in the recently released Second Chance Summit ST Series of armor solutions. The marriage of a ballistic package that offers greater protection and a breathable, anti-bacterial panel covering that helps prevent heat buildup makes for one of the thinnest, most flexible and comfortable body armor vests around. As if that weren’t enough, a female package specifically fits to a woman’s curves for more effective coverage. The standard model is available in threat levels II and IIIA. The female package is available in level II. MSRP $1,150 (level II) and $1,050 (female level II).

This latest version also records every action with time and date stamps while self-diagnostics guide users through troubleshooting steps. MSRP $848.40.
