I’m always on the lookout for new gear, both tacticool and useful – whether US Patriot sells it or not. Below are some of the hottest new items on the market, many of which were unveiled at the 2018 SHOT Show. If you have any of these products, share your thoughts in the comments below!
5.11 Mission Ready Oxford
Sometimes boots are not the answer. Whether standing post or working plainclothes, there are times when shoes are the best answer, but not just any shoes will do. You need comfort, support, and a shoe that is up to the mission. You need the Mission Ready Oxford by 5.11. They have the style you want, with either Flat Earth or Black available, and the comfort you need thanks to the Ortholite foam insoles and ankle collar. Plus, the non-marking Vibram sole provides better traction and slip protection than most duty shoes.
Blue Force Micro Trauma Kit
Having a proper trauma kit at your fingertips can be the difference between life or death. Blue Force has provided everything you need, and it is literally at your fingertips thanks to the easy to access belt mount. The Advance Fill Kit includes gloves, combat gauze, trauma bandage, decompression needle, Hyfin vent chest seal, frog tape, and nasopharyngeal airway – pretty much everything you need to be well prepared to survive a trauma emergency.
Propper’s Kinetic Collection
The new Kinetic Collection of tactical pants, shorts, and shirts by Propper spells an end to tight, binding field uniforms. Thanks to the NEXStretch fabric, your uniforms will now move with you – not against you. You will also enjoy the water repellent treatment, gripper waistband, ambidextrous pocket configuration, and heavy-duty belt loops suitable for even 1 ½” wide gun belts.
Vortex Optics Fury HD 10×42 Laser Rangerfinder/Binoculars
The Fury HD by Vortex combines long-distance ranging capability and quality optics from a name you can trust. With 10x magnification and a 314.4 ft field of view (at 1000 yds), these binoculars will be up to the task no matter what you are hunting – man or beast. Right side, single hand controls allow for simultaneous control of a firearm or bow. Vortex has seen the future and now you can too!
Hoffners Grab and Go Ammo Bag
Everything Hoffners.com and owner Brian Hoffner offers is designed out of need – AND YOU NEED THIS BAG.
