Also new for 2014 is the BTH-SPM100 wireless Bluetooth speaker microphone, which brings simplicity to the forefront and is excellent for use in industries outside of the first responder. Users can integrate the BTH-SPM100 with various Android (tablet and cell phone) apps, including Skype.

Pryme’s new CEL-QD1 adapter, a radio accessory supports the use of commercial grade earpieces with multiple two-way radios. With the CEL-QD1, standard Apple-product earpieces and noise-cancelling headsets can transmit radio communications, which is especially useful for undercover operations. The CEL-QD1 is also compatible with the PrymeBlu® Push-to-Talk device. A new aviation-style version of Pryme’s racing dual-muff headset, the HBB-EM series, was made after airport customers requested a noise-canceling version.

Released by 5.11 Tactical in May 2014

5.11 Tactical® ChromaFlex™ Badges

5.11 Tactical® introduced an exclusive line of ChromaFlex™ badges designed for law enforcement officers. A lightweight, comfortable and secure alternative to heavy metal or embroidered badges, ChromaFlex is a permanent, three-dimensional textile embellishment that allows officers to maintain the authoritative, metallic appearance of a traditional metal badge without sacrificing authenticity. After undergoing a number of quality-assurance tests, the permanent badge solution has been created to withstand the most demanding conditions officers encounter out in the field. For added convenience, the badge is both home laundry and dry clean friendly. All stock badge design templates include the option for a state seal insert and customized laser-etched text in one of several colors, providing savings when compared to traditional metal badge costs.

ChromaFlex is the newest addition to the established line of three-dimensional textile embellishments developed by FiberLok, the company responsible for creating an entirely new category of dimensional heat applied graphics. A ChromaFlex badge can now be added to apparel and accessories sold within 5.11 Tactical’s extensive line of law enforcement products. For more information, visit www.511tactical.com.
