{ 01) VEC­TOR SHIELDS NIJ LEVEL III VEC­TOR LAW EN­FORCE­MENT SHIELD

The NIJ Level III Vec­tor Law En­force­ment Shield is a light­weight, low pro­file, arm-se­cured shield that pro­vides mo­bile bal­lis­tic pro­tec­tion to the up­per body, head, face and neck of an of­fi­cer. The Vec­tor Shield is not a full-body shield, but it seeks to fill the gap where body ar­mor may not be ad­e­quate in stop­ping a threat, and where larger riot or en­try shields may not af­ford an of­fi­cer ease of mo­bil­ity. De­signed and patented by a vet­eran Spe­cial Forces Green Beret medic, the Vec­tor Shield works with the body’s nat­u­ral flinch re­sponse to guard against po­ten­tially lethal gun shots, blunt-force im­pact, knife at­tacks, dog at­tacks and nee­dle sticks. “The mo­bil­ity of this shield al­lows it to be safely de­ployed in the field, in­side a pa­trol ve­hi­cle, or in any con­stricted ar­eas where tra­di­tional shields are not ad­e­quate,” said Vec­tor of­fi­cials.

Ad­di­tional shield ac­ces­sories in­clude: ac­tive shooter dis­ori­ent­ing bal­lis­tic cover, shield sling, seat mount­ing shield car­rier bag, flash­light hol­ster, ves­sel mount and bi­cy­cle mount.

{ 02) GO-MAG­NETS GUN MOUNT

We’re talk­ing in­no­va­tion here. Go-mag­nets pro­vides cre­ative ways for gun own­ers to con­ve­niently dis­play, or­ga­nize and store guns. The Texas-based com­pany was founded by a U.S. Army vet­eran who hand­crafted the Go-mag­net de­sign while fo­cus­ing on the “strength and ver­sa­til­ity” of the prod­uct. Con­sider this: A sin­gle Go-mag­net will eas­ily hold an ob­ject weigh­ing up to 15 pounds. Start­ing at $13.99, a Go-mag­nets Gun Mount al­lows you to con­ve­niently store any size hand­gun within sec­onds while se­curely hold­ing your gun to any steel sur­face.

“The Go-mag­net gives gun own­ers on-the-go pro­tec­tion while of­fer­ing fast ac­cess to the hand­gun,” said a com­pany of­fi­cial. Each Go-mag­net comes with a steel-mount­ing plate de­signed to of­fer a quick stor­age so­lu­tion while rid­ing in your ve­hi­cle, sit­ting at your desk and even at bed­side. The mount­ing plates are de­signed to be in­stalled on wood or plas­tic sur­faces to make them com­pat­i­ble with the Go-mag­net. The GO-MAG­net it­self is coated in a soft rub­ber-like sub­stance to pre­vent any dam­age to weapons while pro­vid­ing a se­ri­ous hold to keep your gun safe from slip­ping or slid­ing.

{ 03) EMER­SON VIK­ING COM­BAT AXE

Emer­son Knives are se­ri­ously hard-use knives and de­signed with com­bat­ive in­tent. Af­ter speak­ing with Ernest Emer­son ear­lier this year about his love for his­tor­i­cal axes, it was clear that his love for the Vik­ing axe drove this de­sign. Named af­ter those who knew com­bat, but used their axes for ev­ery­thing, the Vik­ing Com­bat Axe is ready for com­bat or the field. Al­though throw­ing your weapon is not rec­om­mended, in a pinch, this has the per­fect bal­ance point for con­sis­tently stick­ing it in a tar­get. —Joshua Swanagon Web: Emer­son­knives.com

{ 04) MAX­PE­DI­TION RIFTBLADE

If you want to see a feed­ing frenzy, just stop by our of­fice when a new back­pack gets de­liv­ered. For Fall 2018, Max­pe­di­tion in­tro­duced two new back­packs in the Ad­vanced Gear Re­search (AGR) lineup. Build­ing upon the suc­cess of their Rift­core de­sign in­tro­duced in early 2016, Max­pe­di­tion now of­fers the larger 30L Riftblade and the more com­pact 15L Rift­point. This, as you’ll see, nicely rounds out the er­gonomic con­cealed-carry ca­pa­ble back­packs.

Max­pe­di­tion’s mis­sion is to build mil­i­tary-grade tac­ti­cal gear based on cut­ting-edge re­search us­ing cus­tom de­vel­oped ma­te­ri­als and com­po­nents … with mod­ern­ized aes­thet­ics. Avail­able in gray, tan or black; quadru­ple side com­pres­sion; padded com­part­ment with ex­te­rior loop field; and front ad­min com­part­ment. MSRP: $259.99 TW Web: Max­pe­di­tion.com
