We all know that there are some pretty tough women in Law Enforcement, Military and even some women that’ll kick your ass in IDPA. One of the biggest complaints we had from women 10yrs ago, when we first got into the tactical clothing industry was that all of the stuff they had access to was mens tactical clothing. Every once in awhile we might be sold out of a certain womans pant style or boot style, and they’ll happily walk out the door with mens pants or boots and just tough it out. Without turning this into an anatomy course on why women can’t wear the same clothing as men all the time, just be glad that there is a steady market out there geared towards women in Law Enforcement, Security and competition shooting. Just look at the pink AR15 accessories Magpul has out.
Recently we evaluated our footwear line and cut out styles that didn’t move as quickly but put in more of the Original Swat footwear for women. There aren’t many color options in the tactical boot line, but let’s be real, the majority of Original Swat boots are going to be for people that need to wear black boots. The new Chase Series footwear are available in tan and we will be testing those out to see if they sell as well as the 1152F side zip boots did. It seems that just like the men, women prefer side-zip boots over the tradition 9inch lace up boots. There is also a chase low style for women that will be listed shortly.
