Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What makes the FRISKER protective glove different from other brands? Most others I’ve tried actually tear and cut in a matter of weeks.
-Sgt L. Brine
A: Our use of Honeywell™ lining guarantees the highest quality of materials is used in protecting operative’s hands. We do not settle for ‘cheaper’ imitations lining or reduce the overall quality of the inner and outer materials.
Q: Our agency has tried different brands of ammunition/magazine cases and cannot find one that suits multiple brands of magazines? – Lt A. Norton
A: Our BLACKBEAR range of ammunition/magazine case is unique. They have an adjustable securing flap with a plastic insert for quick deployment and added security fastens which help with any popular brand of magazine, I.e. H&K, S&W, GLOCK, SIG SAUER and many more
Q: Do you have a molle type backpack we can use for multiple operations? – H.E Wells
A: In our backpack and bag section you will find an array of various backpacks which are three way-carries capable. In addition our unique molle attached packs easily assemble with any of the individual pouches or cases available. The C-61001 also has weapon carry capabilities for urban escorts.
Q: Why is your range of duty belts more pliable than other brands? – B. Hughes
A: Our Duty Belts are designed with a unique ‘air-tube’ system which allows all the appointments attached to the belt to float and disperse weighted pressure evenly along the circumference of the belt. Our range is preferred by many physiotherapists and chiropractors for officers with back concerns.
Q: Do you have a multiple use glove for Police work, to save me carrying three to four different pairs? – S. Lucie
A: Most other manufacturers will design and produce individual gloves for each use, for obvious sales reasons. Our range of FRISKER gloves can accommodate any specialist operational application. More so I think the FRISKER H-PBG glove will suit Police work as it’s the only glove on the market with MPS. (Multiple protection systems) Cut Puncture and Fluid protection all in one glove. The H-PBG still allows dexterity and the ability to ‘search’ without falls readings. If cost is important then look at our entry level glove with similiar features, with a corser outer skin, H-G04.
Q: Looking at an ‘all terrain tactical’ boot which won’t wear out? – Cpl. T. Bergman
A: With regards to ‘wear’ our range of boots comply to EN 12770 Outsole Abrasion resistance standards, which not too many other brands meet such strict standard testing protocol. If footwear is wearing out quickly in most cases it may be the brands use of cheap outsole rubber choice as a key factor.
Our ranges use ‘full grade leather’ only and no synthetics.
Q: We are in need of duty gear which can transition between LH & RH operatives during training without too much time? – Training Co. A Hummel
A: Our BLACKBEAR duty belts and accessory pouches will do just that, due to their unique ability. We have a two tiered attachment feature so you can transition and move any pouch into position without detaching the pouch or risking its retention capabilities.
Q: Does your range fit woman shapes as well as men? – A. Redwood
A: Our duty gear is designed for unisex fitting. If anything we receive a lot of positive feedback from female officers who breathe a sigh of relief that there is now a product made for all body shapes and sizes.
