With a quick overlook of the Neatfreak, the hard use every day carry (EDC) user seems to be the demographic the design caters to, however some extra features allow dual use for MIL/LEO applications. The overall shape is similar to a Remora, but they are quite different pieces of kit.
The Responder Pouch was designed by a SWAT Technician with the intent to have a kit bag that could be rapidly adjusted per mission. For staters, a unique feature of the pouch is that it is padded on front, back, and bottom making it good for electronics and more delicate tools.
Blackhawk recently expanded the warrior wear line which includes this snazzy 3 layer jacket system. Each layer is designed to be used on its own or used in any combination with the other layers. As you might guessed, layer 1 gives the lightest element protection and layer 3 gives the most. The materials and constuction used are quite modern resulting in a functional and styln' system. Each layer is sized appropriately for layering so one doesn't need to worry about different sizes. I have a full 3 layer set of smalls and I was pleased how well they fit on top of each other. This is accomplished with layer 1 being semi-fitted, layer 2 casual, and layer 3 baggy.
LAPoliceGear.com has been expanding their own product line recently including footwear with the addition of the Operator Boots. The design goal was to make a lightweight boot that has the durability operators expect, but at a great price. I'll have to agree LA Police Gear did just that. To be fair on this review, let me warn you that I got the smallest possible, size 7, but I'm about a 6.5 area. Thus I wear double socks or add in odor pads to get the fit I need.
It Isn't protective, but thought this was the best category placement for now:
A solid and affordable cover here. Made of 50/50 NYCO makes the material a good compromise of lightweight and durable. The front has a button stitch for an NVG screw hole. The cover comes with this area intact, so just cut er' open when you need to screw on your NVG mount. Reinforced holes are in the back for goggle loops and of course holes for the chinstrap system. The exterior holes, typically for foliage placement, are not present likely to cut down on the cost and they are rarely used.
These guys spawned from the original big version (100 series) to be a better fit for all the smaller electronics that are becoming common carry. Such items include: cell phones, PDAs, digital cameras, GPS devices, MP3 players and other goods such as eye protection. The interior of the case has a soft lining to be nice to whatever you decide to put in there. One of the main features of this case is that it is indeed "hard". I'm not a huge guy, but I was able to put my knee on the front / side of the case and let all my body weight go on it, resulting only in slight flex of the case. The wearer can be quite confident whatever they put in the case will not be smashed.
