Gear We Love — January 2018

{1} SSP Eye Protection


This unit — part of the “Entiat Deluxe Bifocal Bundle” in one of the available zippered case options — hits a rather difficult-to-find sweet spot in the eyepro market: It’s an effective and attractive set of glasses, it can be fitted with magnifying lenses and, if someone sits on them at lunch, it isn’t a huge deal. Visit for information and to purchase your perfect set.

{2} Coast FL75R

MSRP: $60

Though a tactical flashlight is the backbone of any EDC gear, depending on the crisis you’re attempting to mitigate, a headlamp might be the best tool for the job. Particularly for emergency first-aid applications, a headlamp with extremely bright white-light capabilities and a red-light-only setting can make the difference between ailing and prevailing. This unit is rechargeable, can also be run on traditional batteries and is available at

{3} Tuff Writer Operator

MSRP: $95.95

The Operator from Tuff Writer doesn’t forget that its primary function is as a pen, but when the time comes to strike an attacker, it’s there for you 100 percent. With a cap that remains firmly attached during use, it’s a secure deal on an American-made, heirloom-quality writing piece. It’s available in the Precision Series (as pictured) and seven other finishes and configurations at

{4} American Purebred Holster

MSRP: $69

Eddie Massaro wasn’t satisfied with the holster options he encountered on the market, so he made his own. The neoprene backing on this minimalist unit keeps you comfortable, and the wire clips allow for more flexibility in mounting, eliminating the “popping off” that can be encountered with traditional clips. The hook-and-loop connection of the holster body to the carriage allows for multiple cant positions, and it’s available at

{5} Jagemann G19 Magazine

MSRP: $15.95

Available in six colors and very easy to maintain, this Glock 19 unit is just one of the magazines available from Jagemann Sporting Group. In fact, if you’re in the market for magazines for your Glock 17, 19, 42 or 43, get to and choose your color.

{6} Etymotic Gunsport Pro

MSRP: $299

Not only do these units protect your hearing by bringing dangerous noise down to safe levels, other ambient noises are also magnified to a comfortable level, which means conversation and range commands become a lot easier to follow than while wearing traditional “cans and plugs.” When not in use, they can be turned off or hung around the neck by a break-free neck lanyard that saves time on cleaning dropped plugs and money on broken earpro.
