Magnum Boots – The updated 2016 (almost) definitive guide to fit

Written by RSS Poster CopShopUK Blog on the 04th April 2016 at 11:55 - Posted in Police Blogs

My definitive guide to the fit on the Magnum range has proved to be one of our most popular blog posts and clearly helpful for you guys, so I’ll continue to update it.  Since 2014 when I last posted the Magnum range continues to change year on year, so here’s our feedback on the fit for Magnum’s latest offerings, based upon our experience here in Cop Shop UK offices, and the ‘feet on’ experiences of our local Kent officers. As ever, the Magnum range continues to evolve and...

LED Lenser torches are brilliant, but which one should I choose …

Written by RSS Poster CopShopUK Blog on the 08th March 2016 at 16:24 - Posted in Police Blogs

LED Lenser torches are now pretty well established as the torch of choice for security and law enforcement officers, certainly one of our local Forces has bitten the ‘we need a decent torch’ bullet and issued a chunk of their officers with the P7.2, so it seemed like a good time to pen one of my popular overview guides to the brand, in a bid to help our customers make the right choice. The LED Lenser range is now pretty big, and specification, price and style ranges significantly. ...

Magnum’s New Clothing Range

Written by RSS Poster CopShopUK Blog on the 23rd April 2014 at 11:00 - Posted in Police Blogs

We’ve been selling Magnum boots for nearly a decade now, and over the years Magnum have dabbled with a tactical or patrol clothing range to run alongside their ever popular patrol footwear, but this is the first time we’ve really seen what could be described as a comprehensive quality range of garments from Magnum – it will be interesting to gauge our officer’s reaction to the range, but here are a few of the early front runners for us … Magnum Base Pack (3 pack of socks)...

Magnum Boots – The brand new (almost) definitive guide to fit

Written by RSS Poster CopShopUK Blog on the 24th February 2014 at 12:25 - Posted in Police Blogs

It’s been almost three years since I posted my definitive guide to the fit on the Magnum range, and it proved to be one of our most popular blog posts.  Since 2011 the Magnum range has changed drastically, so I thought it high time to re-visit this theme and give my opinion on the fit for the new wave of Magnums, based upon our experience here in Cop Shop UK offices, and the ‘feet on’ experiences of our local Kent officers. As ever, the Magnum range continues to evolve and develop...

The New LED Lenser P7.2 – All Round Brilliance!

Written by RSS Poster CopShopUK Blog on the 25th September 2013 at 12:10 - Posted in Police Blogs

UPDATE: The new LED Lenser T7.2 is now available as well, featuring pretty much the same spec as below but with a few minor additions. The P7 (and T7) have been extremely popular amongst our police and military customers, so I suppose it was inevitable that LED Lenser would eventually release a new version of the classic design. And here it is, the LED Lenser P7.2, and very nice it looks too. The same recognisable shape, very slightly larger, some rather attractive red detailing around the head...

Is there something missing in the Magnum range?

Written by RSS Poster CopShopUK Blog on the 20th August 2013 at 11:41 - Posted in Police Blogs

We’re getting a lot of faithful Magnum customers asking for recently discontinued styles, such as the much loved Magnum Stealth Force boot range (Stealth 8″ side zip, Stealth 8″ leather and nylon) and the Magnum Spider boots. Unfortunately all but a few unpopular sizes are now gone forever, although Magnum have retained the Stealth range in its 4 safety styles – Magnum Stealth 8″ and 6″ CT CP and Zip CT Wpi. For those not wanting a safety toe cap though, it’s...

Zippy Patrol Pouches from Tactical Jack …. a pouch less ordinary!

Written by RSS Poster CopShopUK Blog on the 19th July 2013 at 12:41 - Posted in Police Blogs

If you’re a seasoned officer you’ll know that nylon patrol pouches traditionally come in three or four generic shapes and styles, with a basic velcro flap securing the contents. It’s a tried and tested formula, and works well, but they are pretty basic and I’ve often wondered why some of the military and outdoors brands seem to come up with such better designs and gadgetry … Now I’m pleased to say that a Police and Security brand has finally come up with something...

After 5 years away and by popular demand … they’re back! Turtleskin gloves and why you need a pair

Written by RSS Poster CopShopUK Blog on the 03rd July 2013 at 13:53 - Posted in Police Blogs

Good needle/puncture resistant search gloves are hard to come by – by that I mean gloves that have been tested and certified, and that have a decent level of wearer comfort and fit in the fingers.  By its nature, hypodermic needle resistant fabric tends to be dense and ‘cardboardy’ to be finely woven enough to stop a sharp, and so finding a duty glove that offers an officer dexterity as well as protection is an art form.  After all it’s all very well having a ‘suit...

LED Lenser Torches – World Record Holders!

Written by RSS Poster CopShopUK Blog on the 18th October 2011 at 16:15 - Posted in Police Blogs

We’d recently updated our range of LED Lenser torches with all the latest models and I was mulling over what I could say about them that was a bit more interesting than just the usual tech specs. Then, out of the blue, I received this fascinating nugget directly from LED Lenser themselves. Apparently their mad German designers have knocked up the largest torch in the world! This beast of a torch measures about 4 metres long (that’s about the size of a VW Golf). Here is the press release...

Magnum Boots – The (almost) definitive guide to fit

Written by RSS Poster CopShopUK Blog on the 26th July 2011 at 11:23 - Posted in Police Blogs

New post added for the 2014 Magnum boot range… Following on from my last post about all the different styles of Magnum boots available, I thought I’d post a quick run down of how they measure up, as not all Magnum boots have exactly the same fit and feel. As the range has expanded over the years, new styles have been introduced which can vary in terms of comfort and fit depending on your own foot shape.  Foot shape can have a big impact on the comfort of a boot, even if you have picked...
