Autumn GearA. The Tru-Spec Polar Fleece Jacket features machine-washable, 100-percent polyester microfleece construction to offer all the warmth of wool at a fraction of the weight. The jacket contains a zip-thru collar, a zipper front placket and elastic cuffs that help keep the wearer toasty. Loops along the sleeves allow the jacket to be integrated with the company’s H20 Proof Parkas. Colors include black, blue, coyote, foliage and tan. MSRP: $41.95; truspec.com

B. Precision-molded Kydex construction and an exacting curvature make the DeSantis Veiled Partner Holster ideal for discreet carry. An adjustable design permits several elements of the holster to be customized to the user, including height and cant, using 1.5- or 1.75-inch loop openings. It is available in right- and left-handed models for various models of SIG Sauer, Smith & Wesson, Glock, Springfield Armory and Taurus handguns. MSRP: $59.99; desantisholster.com

C. Available in three configurations, LA Police Gear Terrain Flex Jeans are constructed from 13-ounce stretch denim and include a brass, locking YKK zipper; reinforced, boot-friendly, double-heel fabric and high-end stitching. The nine-pocket design includes two front pockets with internal hidden-clip reinforcement, two front watch pockets modified to fit pistol magazines and two rear hip pockets sized for rifle magazines/smartphones. Colors include black, charcoal, dark wash, medium wash and vintage wash. MSRP: $39.99; lapolicegear.com

D. While not as thick as typical duty- or carry-style offerings, the Blackhawk Universal BDU Belt features a 1.75-inch width and one-size-fits-all design that will accommodate up to a 52-inch waist. The metal friction buckle allows gear to be anchored securely, offering unmatched adjustability—without becoming bulky or compromising mobility. Color options include black and coyote. MSRP: $15.45; blackhawk.com

E. Danner Caliper 6-inch Black Aluminum Toe Boots provide glove-like comfort and protection for your feet. Rubber soles are oil- and slip-resistant to enhance traction, whether indoors or traversing debris-covered/uneven terrain. Dual layers of plush memory foam and polyurethane line the footbed for enhanced comfort, while a Strobel memory-foam sock along the bottom further enhances coziness and cushioning. MSRP: $150; danner.com
