American COP July/Aug 2010 - Page 16
G2G GOOD TO GO GEAR WINGMAN PAtrol orGANIzer John Connor How do you organize all the cop-car crap you need readily at hand? With most arrangements, six important “somethings” always wind up in the trunk, right? 5.11 Tactical’s new Wingman could solve that neatly. It’s a modular briefcase that unzips and unfolds to hang from your passenger seat. As it unfolds, from the top down are two Velcro-stripped and MOLLEwebbed sections totaling about 15x18" which accept all kinds of pouches and attachments; a main compartment (6.5x13x18") with adjustable partition, fold-down bottom stiffener, several open-top flat pockets and a zippered see-through pouch; then you unzip a 10x18" panel which lays flat on the seat, has a large concealed pocket and four rows of MOLLE webbing so you can equip it however you like. There’s room for just about everything a well-equipped cop wants to carry. Comes with a shoulder strap and a luggage-type handle; construction and quality are excellent. MSRP: $79.99.

I’d never heard of Rudy Project until recently. Guys who know swear by `em and now that I’ve tried them, I understand. Rudy Project made their bones in high-performance sports glasses and goggles (18 Rudy wearers just took medals at the Vancouver Winter Olympics), and only recently broke into the tactical field. The Rydon Tactical is just one of many models, but equipped with ImpactX Photochromic Clear (light-adjusting) transparent/gray lenses, it’s a top choice for all-day bright sun-to-shadow duty wear. For prescription lenses, you really need to study the info on their FreeForm TEK Rx Lenses, which are easily interchangeable like all their “regular” lenses and offer some unique features. Rudy Project’s website can answer all your questions. MSRPs vary; Rydon’s list for $204. For more info: www.rudyprojectusa.com 16 WWW.AMERICANCOPMAGAZINE.COM • JULY/AUGUST 2010
