Essential Tactical Gear

Be prepared!

“Tactical” gear is traditionally any equipment worn by military or law enforcement officers to enhance their effectiveness in operations. Even if you’re not on the front lines, having the right tactical gear is important in order to be prepared for anything that comes your way. It could be a weekend out in the woods, an airsoft event, an overzealous paintball excursion, or it may just be the end of the world as we know it. The majority of tactical gear products were designed and developed by special operations or law enforcement personnel so the quality and effectiveness is unparalleled. Essential tactical gear should be reliable, versatile, functional and easily hidden. Any item that you carry with you in an operational situation should be capable of performing at least two functions, such as self-defense and securing other items. Whenever possible, opt for compact, lightweight, waterproof and fire-resistant materials for your gear. Listed below are the most essential tactical gear and supplies that you must have for any situation you might encounter.
