Apart from the job itself, one other thing that military officer and other law enforcement agents love is their tactical gear. This comes as no surprise as these gear can sometimes be the determiner of life and death in dire situations.
Although the type and kind of gear that are carried are often determined by the various institutions, it doesn’t stop officers from equipping themselves with cool, high-tech tactical gear. But, no matter how much cool gear you get, nothing matters without the basic necessities.
This is for newbies as well as civilians who want to prepare for emergencies and dangerous scenarios. So, here are 5 pieces of tactical gear that you cannot do without:
- Tactical Jacket
When we say that a jacket is tactical, we mean that it provides you with strategic organization of items, easy access and ready-to-use utilization. A high-quality tactical jacket ought to be the house for all gears. From ammo pack, tactical knives, tactical flashlights, to cuffs and even first aid kits, your tactical jacket provides you a split-second access to the essentials. Making it an essential item itself.
- Tactical Belt
Its essence is similar to that of the jacket. Apart from the firearm holster, cuffs (or other form of restraints), tactical flashlight, and ammo case can be properly arranged on the belt. You can also find a space for pepper spray, handheld radio, or a Taser.
- Tactical Packs
This is very important for carrying things that you might not need immediately, but might need in the long run. It is important that law enforcement agents and civilians have a go-to tactical pack where they can store essential items, as well as replacement items for the gears in the jacket or belt.
Restraints are an important piece of a tactical gear. It is necessary for law enforcement, and recommended for civilians who want to subdue perpetrators before the police arrival.
This is a no-brainer for law enforcement and military. But for civilians, you might have limited options depending on the laws of your state. However, to avoid self-inflicted injuries, do not carry a weapon that you’re not trained to use.
