Combat knives are very handy because they are small in size and are very easy to hide. These knives are mainly designed for self-defense, but can also be used for plenty of other activities, like cleaning fish!
The blade used to make combat knives is usually made of pure stainless steel, but may vary in cases where the usage of the knives is not only self-defense. The handles offer a very firm and secure grip. Some handles contain holes for fingers to ensure that the knife does not slip out when the palms are sweaty.
In recent years, there has been an increase in the demand for Combat boots, especially in the civil sector, as they are very useful, waterproof, durable, and comfortable for rough terrain activities. 
Different varieties of boots are available depending on geographical locations and climatic conditions, namely for desert conditions or extreme cold weather. The heels and soles are carefully molded so that the boots offer a high level of comfort and stability along with ample support for the ankle.
Combat boots with rubber outsoles are considered more comfortable than those without them, since shocks are better absorbed and movement is very easy. One of the most important companies that produce soles for combat boots is Vibram, a leader company in the market.
Night Vision, Thermals, Lasers, and Weapon Sights are used and available solely to military personnel. Night vision weapon sights are portable, battery operated, and electro-optical instruments that are used for observation and aimed fire of weapons at night.
It basically amplifies reflected light, such as the light from the moon and the stars, so that the viewed scene becomes clearly visible to the operator. As these devices do not emit any visible or infrared light that can be detected by the enemy, they are safe to use.
Gas Masks used are usually available with a 3-filter port, and six adjustable straps. The airflow is controlled in a manner such that the visor does not fog.
The masks provide full visibility and protection from flying debris. They are also heat-resistant, and hence, do not catch fire or melt.
In this very competitive market, Blackhawk is the most respected, and is also known to use the most advanced technology in terms of equipment supplies for army operations. They include almost any type of material necessary to a professional market. The company is also very well-recognized for the advantageous warranty policy that they offer.
For adventurers to men in combat, tactical gear is a necessity, which everyone must have. Protection against the enemy and forces of nature is now readily available, and must be used to the fullest extent possible. It is always better to be prepared!
