This month’s Gear Locker is going to focus on 2019 and some of the new products you can look forward to. New gear is always nice, but gear that you can get before anyone else is an extra bonus! Here are my top five most-anticipated products due out next year.
Seahorse Protective Equipment Cases Waterproof Holster
If you work in or around water, you know your firearm might suffer the consequences. While most gun owners would never think of getting their sidearm wet on a regular basis, it is the norm for you. But now it doesn’t have to be. The P17 from Seahorse is a fully sealed Level 3 holster that protects against water and dust. Carried in a drop thigh configuration and equipped with a pressure equalization system for easy opening, it offers a level of protection not previously available in the marine environment. Changeable custom inner sleeves ensure a firearm-specific fit.
Stealth Gear USA IWB Handcuff Carrier
Plain clothes and off-duty carry have long presented the problem of where to carry handcuffs. Stuff them in a pocket? Hang them through your belt? Both have been done, and both are less than secure and often not an option. With the Stealth Gear USA IWB Handcuff Carrier, you now have another option. This new case allows single stack carry inside the waistband, a method already popular for many firearms. The breathable Ventcore platform, molded case, and strong spring clips provide all-day comfort and superior security.
Fulcrum Target System Portable Range
In 2007, a group of shooters joined forces to solve a common problem: how can you get a usable, portable target system that provides training rather than just paper to punch holes into. The group’s answer was the Fulcrum Target System, which is now available in three configurations and comes with a wireless remote and weatherproof case. You can set upturning, side swing, or pop-up targets with little more than what fits in a Pelican Case.
Glock 45 Service Pistol
Glock USA is undoubtedly one of the top choices when it comes to service pistols. Now you have one more option to choose from! The Glock 45 combines the compact slide of the Glock 19 with a full-size frame for a compact crossover duty-size sidearm. Part of the 5th Generation of Glock products, the G45 includes a textured frame for improved grip, smooth adjustable trigger, reversible magazine catch, ambidextrous slide stop lever, Modular Backstrap System, and match grade barrel.
5.11 Class A Poly/Wool Uniforms
5.11 is a leading supplier of tactical clothing and equipment. Now, it’s a source for Class A uniforms as well. There are times when tactical is not the answer, particularly when a sharp professional look is needed. But thanks to 5.11, you won’t have to sacrifice comfort and durability for looks. The Poly/Wool Uniforms from 5.11 offer all the features you look for in a professional uniform: scalloped pockets, epaulets, badge tab, radio loop, name tag/badge support, and microphone loop. You also get the durability you expect from 5.11, thanks to a Teflon finish for stain resistance, YKK zippered center closure, and a 62/38 Poly/Wool blend. The uniforms are available in three colors (black, midnight, and silver tan) and come in both men’s and women’s sizes.
