Maximalist Footwear: Boots That Protect Your Feet & Back

You’ve heard of minimalist footwear? Well, now there’s Maximalist footwear for those of us who don’t want to run barefoot, especially on the job.

New FATT MAXX Tactical Research Boots at Captain Dave's

The Fatt Maxx line from Tactical Research by Belleville Boots is designed to maximize the cushioning between your feet and the ground, increasing both comfort and rebound when you walk, run, stand, or march. Great for the field, but also a welcome relief when you have to pull a double shift and spend most of it on your feet.

 

How do they do it? By combining the exclusive Vibram® Ballistic outsole and an ultra cushioning, shock absorbing Fatt Maxx midsole, the Maxx Series allows your foot to sink deeply into the sole and offers more shock absorbancy than other leading athletic tactical boots. For added comfort, boot-wearers with high arches or flat feet have the option to replace the top insole for the ultimate customized fit.

New FATT MAXX Boots from Tactical Research

If you are law enforcement or EMS, this brand new line is the perfect investment for those of you looking to protect your feet and back.

 

Captain Dave’s is proud to be one of the first to offer the Fatt Maxx line on our website and storefront. If you’ve been waiting to pull the trigger on a new pair of boots, now is the perfect time to stop in and experience this ultimate performance gear.

 

Two New Voodoo Packs Offer Options

We are pleased to offer two new packs from Voodoo Tactical, the Low Drag backpack and the Versa All Weather Ruck. Both packs are available in black, olive green and coyote tan.

LowDragPackThe Low Drag pack is designed for those who want a more compact, shortened pack without sacrificing carrying capacity. Stout where other packs are tall, the low drag pack allows you to carry a significant load higher on your back. This makes it a good option for shorter customers who may find large bags like the Tobago too tall.

Voodoo’s Low Drag pack is a great size for a bug out bag – large enough to carry plenty of gear, but not so large you need a crew of three to carry it. It features three fields of MOLLE PALS webbing that allow you to selectively add additional pouches and tie down points on the bottom to attach a bedroll, sleeping bag or tent.

It would also make an ideal travel or every day carry pack for those who want the durability and performance of a tactical bag but do not wish to look too “military.”

HSGI Double Decker TacoMaybe you have heard of High Speed Gear, or maybe you’ve seen photos of of their products in magazines such as Recoil, but you really can’t fully understand how well made their products are and how slick they work until you’ve put your hands on it. Their pouches start where most of the others have left off, thanks to an innovative design that expands and contracts to safely and securely hold its contents.

 

The HSGI line of TACOs is the next step in the evolution of the tactical magazine pouch. Each TACO – and they come in multiple configurations – is flexible enough to fit a wide range of sizes. For example, their standard TACO designed to hold one rifle pouch will hold your standard AR15/M4 magazine as well as polymer magazines like the Magpul, which are sometimes a tight fit in other brands. But the same TACO pouch will also hold an AK47 magazine, and an AR10 magazine. Of course, it fits mags for the FAL, M14 and H&Ks as well. It’s also flexible enough to hold flash bangs, smoke grenades and other equipment.

Tru-Spec 24-7 Tactical Pants are Now 25% Off

Tru-Spec 24-7 Tactical PantsStop by our store and it’s a good bet that at least one employee – and sometimes three or four – is wearing a pair of Tru-Spec’s 24-7 tactical pants. Sometimes it’s a pair of their Eclipse jean-style tactical pants or the Tru-Spec classic pants, but most of us prefer the original 24-7 pants.

 

And what’s not to like? They are comfortable and useful, with deep front pockets capable of concealing a revolver or pocket pistol, plus two cargo pockets, each of which is large enough to hold two AR15 magazines or the world’s largest wallet. There are two smaller flap pockets in the front and a matched set of rear pockets, all protected with a flap that is secure by a good amount of Velcro. There is also a thin knife pocket on each side that also can hold a flashlight or a tool.

 

If you wear an IWB holster, the expandable waistband of these pants will allow you to be as comfortable with it on as you were without it, and there is an internal pouch at the knees that will allow you to slip a knee pad inside.  The teflon coating helps keep them clean and makes a splash of water bead up and roll off, usually before it soaks you.
