NEW Gerber: StrongArm Fixed Blade Knife

It never hurts to have a great knife on you, especially as an EMT when emergencies arrive and you need a reliable knife in a pinch. Why not carry a great survival knife Gerber made that's a brand the military has been using and trusting since 1968?

The StrongArm Fixed Blade is a wonderful knife that carries on Gerber's legacy-- to make a tough-as-hell blade for combat and survival applications. The sheath that it comes with can be mounted in a variety of ways making this knife reliable whether on duty or off.

The Gerber StrongArm features a fine edge, full tang 420HC blade that has a black ceramic coating. It helps you obtain a solid grip on the knife in all conditions with the diamond-texture rubberized handle. There's a striking pommel that's at the base of the handle which functions to break through hard surfaces for effective rescue ops. The blade should be corrosion-free for the long life of the blade thanks to the ceramic coating.

Now let's talk about the sheath--since the StrongArm's sheath system is as important as the knife itself. The sheath has a snap-together component that the operator can choose to mount the knife vertically on MOLLE or horizontal on a standard tactical belt or drop-leg belt mount fashion.

You can choose this pretty little knife in a Coyote color or Black, and with a Fine edge or Serrated edge, depending on your needs and preferences.

Features:
  • Fine or serrated edge full tang 420HC steel blade
  • Ceramic blade coating
  • Rubberized diamond-texture grip
  • Striking pommel
  • Nylon webbing for drop-leg carry and secondary retention
  • Detachable belt hoops for horizontal belt carry

DUPONT™: Tyvek Coverall, with a super fit.


In this day and age, a durable, superior protection is available in the Dupont Tyvek Coverall. The best part about this suit is it fits

Because when it comes to hazardous particulates like mold, lead, asbestos--- protection and safety come first. But the best protection doesn't matter if it gets in the way of doing a good job, this is why Tyvek garments with the new comfort fit design are so well loved. You get durability, protection, and an even more comfortable fit.

They're made of a flash spun high density polyethlene which creates a unique, non-woven material only available from DuPont. It gives you that ideal balance of protection, durability and comfort of any limited use fabric technology. 

Protection is literally built into the fabric itself, and there are no films or laminates to abrade or wear away. Tyvek fabric's durability advantage over microporous film fabrics delivers a consistently better barrier, even after wear and abrasion.
  • Comfort fit design based on extensive wearer input to provide our most comfortable garment design that: enables a greater range of movement while stretching and bending, provides a more tailored fit, offers reinforcement in high stress areas for fewer blowouts, utilizes a longer zipper for easier donning and doffing and an elastic waist to better position the garment.
  • Attached respirator-fit hood with elastic around face opening, designed to cover neck and chin and fit around respirator face mask
  • Longer zipper extends to chin for complete coverage of neck area
  • Elastic opening for tighter fit at wrist
  • Attached Tyvek® FC boots have special coating to provide added skid-resistance
  • Coveralls are sold only by the case (25 per case).
Add some of these suits to your crew, for those situations you need to be extra cautious. You won't be sorry!
