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.
Monadnock introduces an updated baton design that features a 22-inch baton in a black chrome finish along with a custom holder. The handle’s smooth grip means a comfortable fit for any hand size. The Defender also boasts a guard over the user’s knuckles to shield one’s gun hand from strikes. Its holster employs a tension-retention design to catch the hand guard and secure the baton in place. In addition, an open bottom allows the baton to be reholstered in extended mode. MSRP $169.95.
The Impactor Fighting Shield from Monadnock, part of the Safariland brand, is a unique, non-ballistic, multifunctional arm shield that is durable, lightweight and protects officers in both defensive and counter-strike situations. This new model adds features to assist in controlling combative subjects in a wide range of situations. A one-piece, solid aluminum grip provides added strength with a knurled surface that works well with or without a glove. The new, resized handle fits a wide range of hand sizes. Ergonomic padding down the length of the shield better protects against impact and bruising from hard blows against the arm and chest. Also integrated into the handle design is a secure holder for a Defense Technology MK-3 or MK-4 OC spray canister, allowing for easy deployment of the OC. The Impactor Fighting Shield is designed to be operated with one hand, leaving the other free for baton or other weapon deployment. MSRP $139.
There are numerous advantages to both extendable and side-handle batons. The PR-24 from Monadnock, now part of Safariland, combines both. It features a proven side-handle design and the compactness of a positive-locking, expandable system. The baton opens with a simple flick of the wrist, positively locking into place. A Trumbull stop handle provides increased baton retention. The PR-24 is available in both polycarbonate and anodized aluminum. MSRP $49.99- $110.99.
