Superfeet Insoles
Superfeet Insoles

Superfeet can be difference in tired feet at the end of the shift and going running when you get home. I own these for every pair of boots and shoes I own. I consider the cost of a fresh pair to be part of buying new shoes. Superfeet insoles come in a variety of versions, but I prefer the classic green. These offer great arch support and excellent comfort. If you've never used them before, give them a few days before you judge them. They are a little like Birkenstocks - you need to get used to the new shape. Upgrade your boots today!

Protac Tactical Flashlight
Protac Tactical Flashlight

A powerful and sturdy little light with a pocket clip and a very bright LED bulb. It's a nice compromise between a spot light and flood pattern and provides lots of useful light. It's powerful enough to be really useful and small enough so that your aren't "That Guy". I mean, I get it - I love having ridiculous looking tactical lights that can shine like the Batman sign, but this is a reasonable, useful, everyday carry flashlight.

Timex Weekender Watch
Timex Weekender Watch

This watch has a red second hand, 24 hour time markings, and is inexpensive enough that ruining it on a bad call won't be a disaster. It's a nice size, has rounded corners and mine has been quite durable so far, managing lots of mountain biking without any major scratches on the mineral glass front. The band is replaceable, which is nice, though I wish it came with a silicone band option. It's a standard size band, and so if you wanted to have it be a little more washable, that'd be a worthy upgrade.

Conterra Trauma Pro EMS/Radio Holster
Conterra Trauma Pro EMS/Radio Holster

Heavy duty nylon and smart design makes this a durable EMS holster. It holds trauma shears, gloves, and a radio or cellphone. A small pocket can hold a miniature flashlight, pen, or window punch. This is a useful piece of equipment, and it's hard to beat the quality of Conterra manufacturing.
