How Tactical Gear Can Save Your Life

Whether you’re a soldier on deployment or just looking to prepare for a zombie uprising, having the right gear can save your life.

Combat Gear is specifically designed for military and law enforcement personnel. It needs to support the tasks that are required of them, such as long-range patrols or hit-and-run raids.

Gun Belts

A gun belt makes it comfortable to carry lots of range gear at once, such as holsters, medical kits, and mag pouches. They also make it easy to swap out holsters for different weapons.

Gun belts are typically thicker than other types of belts to withstand the weight of a weapon and accessories. They can be made of leather or nylon and may have extra thickness or reinforcement to increase their stiffness.

Most serious handgun competitors favor an inner/outer belt system that allows them to mount competition gear on the outer belt, which is then wrapped around the waist and secured by Velcro. This allows the competition holster to remain attached when switching out guns. It also provides the most comfort by preventing the gun from shifting as you move.

Combat Boots

Clumpy combat boots signify no-holds-barred machismo. But these heavy-duty shoes also offer ankle stability, grip and foot protection in a variety of conditions including snow, mud and sand.

The current issue CAB is a black leather boot worn primarily for training, although privately purchased boots are deemed acceptable by the military[citation needed]. These can be bulled to a high shine when on parade but they are generally left unpolished when in barracks.

For a look that goes from day to date, punctuate combat boots with a fitted blazer and dark jeans. Or pair a flannel shirt and combat boots with skinny jeans for a more rugged and casual look.

Cargo Pockets

Cargo pockets are a military invention, first appearing in WWII when large pockets were added to troops’ trousers to hold maps and bandages. The US military took the idea and made paratrooper pants with dual cargo pockets, which became standard issue for all branches of service after that point.

You can add these utility pockets to any kind of clothing, but a pair of rugged work pants or a flannel button-down are ideal because they’ll be able to manage the extra weight of what you store in them. It’s important to press all the fold lines flat before sewing, and you should topstitch all edges of the pocket for a professional look. This will help it keep its shape and prevent your supplies from spilling out.

Kevlar Armor

While Kevlar has saved many lives in combat, soldiers often find that it comes with a heavy price. A bulletproof vest with ceramic “small arms protective inserts” can weigh 33 pounds (15 kg), a burden for infantrymen on foot patrol in hot, sweltering conditions.

Fortunately, DuPont has developed new versions of Kevlar that provide protection without adding too much weight. These new fibers feature a stronger chemical structure that allows them to be more flexible, while still maintaining the same superior strength. The chain-link fibers of Kevlar can’t be cut or punctured, so they absorb high-velocity projectiles instead of allowing them to pass through. This makes them ideal for use in body armor. Testing has shown that a single layer of 200 GSM Kevlar is sufficient to stop 9 mm FMJ ammunition.

Tactical Uniforms

Combat Gear isn’t only about protecting your employees from bullets or knives; it can also protect them against the elements. For example, police officers and security guards often work in harsh environments where they’re exposed to extreme heat or cold, rain, sunlight or snow. These conditions can distract and irritate them, making them less likely to react quickly in dangerous situations.

Quality tactical clothing is designed to move easily with your employees’ bodies. This makes it easier for them to pursue suspects or run to the aid of someone who’s being attacked. It also reduces the chance that they’ll hurt themselves by running into something hard or getting tripped up on equipment.

Tactical pants are typically made of a durable, breathable material like ripstop fabric and have many features built in to make them combat-ready. They’re also comfortable to wear all day long.
