I envy some of the uniforms here, tactical onesies, external vest carriers.....

Talking about changing a uniform around here is blasphemy. It's strictly verboten!

We are issued these Blumenthal produced jumpsuits. Great stuff and quite a few Depts in the PAC-NW going to them. Summer weight and winter. They are Nylon/Lycra. Do just fine running or climbing and have integrated belt keepers.
They are made in the USA. Highly recommended.

I heard pretty much the same from our Admin. We can, in inclement weather or other "unusual circumstances" wear the 5.11 two-piece soft uniforms but jumpsuits are a no-go. Harrumph!

This place makes me wanna open a business and GTFO of LE.

Figures the Tri-Spec stuff will fade.

What a bunch of dumbasses.

And yet I'm sure that it doesn't even begin to compete with my place.

You know what got the jumpsuits over the top here? Per the contract, the city was on the hook for dry cleaning patrol uniforms. They were looking for ways to cut costs and viola! Wash and wear = significantly reduced dry cleaning costs.

Could someone please post some good photos of officers actually wearing these things? The Bratwear website sucks for photos. I'm trying to put together some uniform proposals and am having trouble. Thanks in advance.

The city also pays to have our uniforms dry cleaned and insists on going with crappy uniforms from local suppliers that are dry clean only. They also switch manufacturers every few years that go with slightly different colour uniforms. I hate having pants and shirts that don't match exactly.
