Winter Gear

In addition to breathable and windproof dual-layer construction, the Tru-Spec H2O Proof 3-in-1 Parka contains Bemis seam tapes providing waterproof protection that keeps you dry in inclement weather. Its inner liner is removable and can serve as a lightweight, water-resistant jacket. There’s even a detachable roll-and-stow hood with a wraparound chin guard and a flexible wire brim. Zippered chest and side pockets offer ample room for essential gear. MSRP: $270.95 truspec.com

Available in black or brown, the Voodoo Tactical Logo Beanie sports a one-size-fits-most, skull-cap design made from a 10-percent acrylic knit and 105 grams of Thinsulate insulation, both of which will keep your head cozy once the mercury falls. A branded skull logo adds a stylish aesthetic. MSRP: $9.95; voodootactical.com

Constructed from a robust material that is extremely resistant to abuse and the elements, the Safariland Model 7390 7TS ALS Mid Ride Duty Holster is readily concealable beneath winter garments and includes the company’s automatic-locking system (ALS). Once holstered, it anchors the pistol in place, and it is not released until a button is actuated by the strong-side thumb while pulling the pistol straight out. MSRP: $139; safariland.com

The latest iteration in the company’s popular outerwear line, Magpul Patrol 2.0 Gloves feature enhanced articulation at the palms, wrap-up finger patterns and flexible knuckle panels for enhanced dexterity. Lightweight construction consists of goatskin overlays on the palms for greater durability and welcome purchase, while corded nylon along the back of the hands offers additional protection. Available colors include black and FDE. MSRP: $49.95; magpul.com

At only 4.5 inches tall and weighing a scant 42 ounces, Danner Fullbore Boots are designed for hard use without sacrificing comfort. Their flexible outsole contains self-adapting lugs and a Megagrip compound that provides much-needed traction on wet or dry surfaces. The Danner Dry liner delivers a waterproof barrier that allows moisture to escape without letting any water in, keeping your feet warm and dry. Colors include black, coyote and gunmetal gray. MSRP: $170; danner.com
