However, the tip of the pen has a carbide tip glass breaker and also has a cuff key inbuilt at the bottom making it a mini tactical weapon. This cuff key is compatible with most of the common handcuffs. 

It is made of very light aluminum that is used in aircrafts and also gun metal making it very durable.  It just weighs 1.6 pounds and can withstand a lot of harsh attacks. It is stylish, useful and also is an innovative product designed for people with adventurous jobs and hobbies. 

This product uses advanced technical concepts which are trusted and used by the army.  

Mechanix Wear M - Pact Gloves

The mechanix wear M pact gloves are a great addition to your tactical gear kit, unofficially a glove of choice by american service men due to the strength and life of the gloves.

The back of hand ribbing gives support, protection and additional strength to reduce cramping. Easily washable they enable the control required to conduct fine finger movements whilst protecting against knocks and hits

Condor Tactical Vertical VT Holster

This is one of the best holsters I have gotten my hands on for a very long time. I like the way the fastening is fully adjustable, which makes it easier to use very conveniently.

What I really loved about it also, was the unique design – the wrap-around is incredible for those times when you are using laser pistols or for mounting the flashlight if you are going to have to use the pistol in a place without proper lighting, or basically in the evening.

I did not believe it yet, but the one size fits most design is also amazing, though I haven’t really got a lot more pieces than I should.

Raptors RTV Tactical Helmet Review

We all understand the importance of protective equipment and a tactical helmet is one of those piece of equipment that cant be overlooked.

The Raptors RTV Tactical Helmet comes with the features we all now expect from a tactical helmet:-- light weight helmet- adjustable padding for comfortable fit- tactical quick use rails and front mount point- central left and right velco patches

Features to note: -- the tactical helmets straps are long enough to comfortably fit most heads and due to the design and angels of the y-strap allows for good clearance and comfort around your ears and communication equipment, if being used.- the tactical rails, mounts and velco give the right balance of equipment on hand without overloading and compromising your head and neck movement. Perfect for your Go-Pro.

Be aware:-- the tactical helmet has limited air ventilation so the wear time and weather condition need to be considered when. - painting ball helmet - if your using this helmet for paint ball we recommend that you use with a set of goggle with ear protection.

Due to the right implementation of its feature the tactical helmet is an excellent buy for under $50. We do recommend this as an entry level helmet, while you workout exactly what you need and want in a helmet, perfect for paintball and similar sports.

Condor Tactical Belt Review

The Condor Tactical Belt is one of the most adaptable and functional pieces of tactical equipment you my every cross paths with. While it is simple and small, those 2 features make it right for so many situations when a full chest rig is to much.

The tactical belt comes with:-- 2 magazine pouches- 2" wide belt- quick release belt buckle- adjustable waist up to 44"- strong nylon material 

Features to note: -- As with all good tactical gear it is adjustable to fit the needs of the user in your situation, the condor tactical belt allows for a mixture of adjustments and expansions including additional magazines and pistol holder.

- Nylon material and activity strong stitching makes this belt a long term purchase for your kit, as you expect with condor tactical equipment.- The simple design comes with a level of rigidity, whilst this might seem uncomfortable when empty it creates a belt able to carry equipment over four pounds. 

Be aware:-- With adjustments for people upto 44" waist, it can create excess strap around your body, if you are a smaller person.- Mag pouches are compact to fit the belt, therefore don't expect large mags to fit, you will need to continue with your best chest rig for some mags.- Due to the width of the belt this wont fit through most pairs of pants, and you may need to consider wearing this as an over belt.

Due to sturdy construction and adjustments this tactical belt rig gives the user the right amount of support while also being very comfotable for long periods of time.
We do recommend this as tactical belt especially since you can always get it under $15 from someone. If nothing more this belt needs to be tried as the freedom it creates is excellent, and no longer do you need to take your chest rig everywhere.

Tactical Gear Review for First-Time Buyers

At times, it is really hard to know what gear to buy and what not to. One does not know what to consider in order to purchase that backpack, belt, or tactical vest. Do you just look at the price and see if it meets your expectations and assumes that the higher the price the more the features? What if these features never meet your expectations, or they are a little too much?

The following is a review on some tactical gear, focused on the features mostly looked at when deciding on whether to purchase it or not.

After hitting the stores at the end of last year, this backpack did not only earn itself the title First Tactical's best seller, it was also the highest rated tactical backpack in the market at the time.

First Tactical’s revolutionary Tactix One Day, Plus Backpack greatly increases its organization options and space through itsLynx Laser Cut Platform, which is compatible with Hook and Hang through compartment (allows specific items to slide through and hang securely in place without the need to utilize the other pockets of the backpack) for oversized or specialized gear, and MOLLE/PALS.

In addition to the Lynx Laser Cut Platform providing twice the mounting options in the backpack, it tests 20% stronger that all the other competitors. The backpack also comes with customizable straps that can be removed.

Finally, the Tactix Backpack has a posture conforming backboard that can be used as shovel, paddle or splint in emergency situations.

2. Tactix Pants
Gone are the days where women had to look for a smaller version of men's tactical pants. First Tactical released Tactix pants, which not only park a number of features for themselves, they are comfortable and professional looking. 
Men's Tactix series tactical pants are fitted with tough nylon lining that is meant to protect the utilitarian pockets from wear and tear. They also have their fabrics coated with Teflon® to keep away dirt, moisture, and stains.

Its cool name is not the only thing that is cool about this bag.

The right pack is very important. Quality, functionality, and reasonable price are all very essential in choosing the right sling pack for your adventure. That is exactly what First Tactical had in mind when they created the Crosshatch Sling Pack.

Fashioned with 1000D nylon, customizable compression straps, and hook and loop organization, this sling pack was designed to be extremely comfortable for both right and left cross-body carrying while giving the user enough space for his or her items. The repositionable straps allow the pack to be fully customizable to every person's needs.

6. Range and BDU belts 
The flexibility and correct thickness of a belt are what to consider while purchasing a belt. A belt that is comfortable around your waist and can hold a holster in place without sagging is what to look for in a belt.

First Tactical's Range and BDU belts are usually curved for a comfortable fit and have two layers of reinforced nylon to ensure durability. Every belt has a metal-free double buckle designed to have the least bulkiness in the history of tactical belts.
