The craziness that is Black Friday has faded to grey and the deals of Cyber Monday have slipped into our memory, but there are those of us who have yet to complete our holiday shopping. Personally, I usually find myself stopping at the mall on my way home December 23rd! But, fear not. USPT has come to your rescue with some great ideas and holiday deals to help you stuff the stockings and fill the space under your tree.
Whether you are looking for gifts for your favorite military member, law enforcement officer or outdoor enthusiast, these gifts are sure to bring a smile to their face.
Danner TFX Boots – Those of us who wear boots day in and day out know the importance of quality footwear. While
finding a pair of study, well-made footwear can be daunting, finding a pair of quality cold weather boots that can actually be worn for more than a couple hours can seem impossible. Danner’s TFX changes all that. With 400 grams of Thinsulate, TFX outsole and waterproof full-grain and nylon construction, these Army-regulation boots will protect your feet from both the elements and on the job hazards in even the coldest months.
550 Paracord – A favorite among service members and outdoorsmen alike, 550 cord is the “other duct tape” as it has a million and one uses. Now you can stuff the stockings with over 25 unique colors ranging from the traditional Camo to over the top fireball, all available in 100 ft lengths at a great price.
Under Armour Cold Weather Head Gear – Anyone who spends time outdoors during cold weather understands the need to protect your brain bucket from excessive heat loss. Under Armour offers you two choices – the Arctic Beanie and the Coldgear Hood. Both provide soft, breathable protection from the elements in a modern, eye catching style. The Arctic Beanie is available in a variety of tactical colors while the Coldgear Hood can be worn in multiple positions either as a neck gator or full head cover.
Propper Gen III Fleece Jacket Liner – Designed to be worn as a comfortable under-layer or a stylish outer garment, this jacket liner will soon find its way into the receiver’s day to day wardrobe. The reinforced collar, shoulders and elbows combined with highly durable Polartec fleece ensure reliability for many seasons to come. The multiple pockets and elastic cuffs provide a level of function that will make it hard to live without.
Petzl Tactikka Headlamp – If you’ve ever fumbled in the dark while having your hands otherwise occupied, you understand the benefits of a headlamp. Unfortunately, not all headlamps are the same. Petzl has combined quality construction, a multiple mode lamp and easy to use push button controls to make this the last headlamp you will ever need. Features such as strobe and red light modes will allow use during any operation, while the steady output and easy to replace AAA batteries will prevent you from being left in the dark. If Santa knew about this, Rudolph might be out of a job!
XMRE Meals Ready to Eat – Restocking your bunker? Heading to deer camp? Looking to host the in-laws for a holiday dinner? If so, XMRE has your six. Each meal provides a hardy 1300 calorie meal including entree, bread or cracker selection, snack/dessert/side option and a hot & cold beverage. Fully cooked with no need for water and a shelf life of 5 or more years, you can stock up now for whatever the coming year brings your way.
Armor of God Dog Tags – Not all protection comes in the way of Kevlar or ceramic plates. These eye catching, quality made tags will remind your loved one that you are thinking of them and that they are not alone during long nights or extended deployments. One side depicts a warrior prepared for battle while the reverse reminds the wearer of the protection faith provides.
Leatherman MUT Multi-Tool – If you have a firearms enthusiast on your list, this latest offering from Leatherman is a must have. While the traditional selection of knife blades, wire cutters and sturdy pliers will be welcome, it is the specialized firearms tools that will make it a permanent part of any shooter’s gear. With a carbon scraper, disassembly punch and thread cleaning rod adapter, your operator will be ready to rock and roll on the range or in the field.
Suunto X-Lander Watch – Military, law enforcement or outdoor sportsmen all know the importance of keeping a sharp eye on the time and weather. The Suunto X-Lander allows you to do this and more and do it in style! The rugged construction and quality craftsmanship makes this a first class time piece. The addition of easy to use altimeter, barometer and precise electronic compass makes it a precision tool the user will soon find invaluable in any situation.
