  1. In general, six inch boots offer better flexibility in walking, jogging, and running than 8 inch boots. However, 8 inch boots excel at providing extra support and protection.
  2. When talking about suitable entry-level Peltor hearing protectors, Tactical Sport and Tactical 100 are two of the best contenders. Peltor Tactical Sport seems to be a better option in terms of battery life, volume control, and recovery time. But when it comes to better hearing protection, the Tactical 100 gets the upper hand with its slightly higher NRR.
  3. Gun violence, unfortunately, is prevalent in the United States. Thus, it is understandable if you want to protect yourself by wearing body armor or a bulletproof vest when you go out. In general, all states allow the wearing of body armor in public. However, there are specific rules on buying and selling these gear.
  4. If you have recently moved to a new place with Best Buy around the corner or if a Best Buy just opened by your place and you are eligible for military discounts, you would want to know the answer to, “Does Best Buy offer military discounts?” Not all Best Buys have military discounts, but a few do.
  5. The six career categories in the US army jobs list are as follows: Science & Medicine, Support & Logistics, Signal & Intelligence, Aviation & Aerial Defense, Mechanics & Engineering, Ground Forces.
  6. The military has an active-duty pay chart for its military members. The rates differ depending on rank, including enlisted soldiers, commissioned officers, warrant officers, enlisted members, and service time (in years) from 2 or fewer to over 40. Unfortunately, there is no precise answer for which military branch pays the most. Your earnings depend on your rank and pay grade, which can be affected by tax-free allowances and special pay.
  7. If you weigh between 148 and 267 pounds as a male and 120 to 184 pounds as a female, then you are good to go. Otherwise, you will have to invest time and effort in losing weight to join the military. It is definitely not an easy task. But it is not impossible either. Briefly, you will need to: understand your body and set your goals, create a diet plan and stick to it, come up with a workout routine and commit to it.
  8. I bought the suspenders for my 9520 Western Finish utility belt, which distributes the load very evenly across my shoulders and hips, relieving my back pain. As I raised my arms above my head, I didn't feel any extra pressure or discomfort in my shoulders from the straps or pillow. i do not feel this stuff when I'm at work, they're spectacular.
  9. If you have decided to get on for yourself, you will have to pick between full-finger vs. fingerless tactical gloves. We will be looking at both the similarities and the differences between full-finger and fingerless tactical gloves. We will examine in terms of: the protection provided, the insulation provided, the dexterity provided, the slipperiness.
  10. In the past, soldiers had only one body armor option: heavy steel plate. But today, they have the luxury of choosing ceramic, steel, kevlar, and polyethylene. Of these materials, ceramic and steel are the most common. Weight: Ceramic is lighter; steel is heavier. Longevity: Steel lasts longer; ceramic has to be replaced in fewer years. Cost: Steel is less expensive; ceramic is rather pricey.
  11. There are different methods on how you can break in your red wing boots, but the best way is to do it inside your house with some simple and easy steps. If you do this, you can still return the shoes to the store in case breaking in the work boot fails. Step 1: Wear your regular work socks (preferably thick ones). Step 2: Step in into your red wing boots. Step 3: Lace up comfortably. Step 4: Walk, jog, and hop around inside the house. Step 5: Be mindful of any discomfort, tightness, or pain. Step 6: Repeat step 4. Step 7: Apply leather on your boots.
  12. Wearing hook and loop buckle tactical belt involves the following steps: Step 1: Set the belt around your waist or through the belt loops on your pants. Step 2: Thread the end tip through the hole closer to the middle of your body. The end tip should thread from under the buckle in this step. Step 3: Pull the end tip and thread it through the other hole on the buckle. The end tip should be threading from above the buckle. Step 4: Pull the end tip to tighten the belt to your liking. Step 5: Thread the excess belt through the keeper loop or secure it to the velcro strap on the belt, if it has on
  13. A tactical flashlight with an output of 300 to 1000 lumens should be more than enough light for most situations. The long answer, though, is a bit more nuanced. It is just as important to consider the kind of beam that the tactical flashlight puts out and match that to the tasks you plan to do with it.
  14. They fit o.k plenty of settings. the sole complaint from me may be a slight lack of pockets to stay tools separately. But aside from that, they're exactly what I needed. The straps are comfortable, it doesn't have an enormous lumbar pad. and the tool belt is also very spacious. I ended 8 hours daily 5 days every week and still haven't any complaints.
  15. I'm an HVAC technician in advertising and this bag is the perfect size for me. ToughBuilt fits everything I want. I found the belt clip useless, I just removed it to get it out of the way. all that was missing was a bag for screws, I added a small craftsman's bag on the back where the stand for screws and cable lugs is and now it's perfect.
