In today’s first SHOT Show video, Alessandro talks with Liam Yarbrough from Uncle Mike’s about some of the great new duty gear that will be available in 2012.
One of the main things Liam mentions is that it was Uncle Mike’s who really introduced Nylon into law enforcement gear. They pushed Nylon as the go-to material for a lot of police departments because of it’s unbelievable durability and consistent performance. You see very few bags that are as tough as those developed by Uncle Mike’s.
The entire line of Uncle Mike’s Gear bags, Duty Bags and Range Bags have been redesigned to add extra strength and functionality to an already great set of bags. They have more piping to add structural support, and the stitching is now better protected. As the stitches are the weakest point on any bag, having these well protected is going to really extend the life of the bag, which is always great.
The new Uncle Mike’s bags have a more tactile feel now, so they should be a bit easier to grab a hold of, and the overall pocket design has been refined to provide more carrying space without adding extra bulk. You combine all this with the fantastic quality Uncle Mike’s is known for and you have a truly outstanding product!
And it’s nice to hear that these products are American Made. We always like to see quality craftsmanship come from the U.S. You should be able to get your hands on the new bags from our Uncle Mike’s Shot Show Video this April, so be sure to check out OpticsPlanet for all the gear you need!
