  • Hi-Gloss Basketweave Duty Gear

    Just thinking.... does anyone make it? I love the hi-gloss look but I'm required to wear basketweave. No way in hell am I putting a spit shine on my basketweave gear to get it hi-gloss either.

    If it walks like a duck, sounds like a duck, and looks like a duck.....it's probably a duck!


    It is what it is!

    You know that would be amazing if someone made that. I mean I am not lazy but spit shining not only boots but all of your duty gear would be a pain in the butt. The only thing I hate to Hi-Gloss is when it gets scratched it is either impossible to get it our or it practically becomes a complete loss.

      I've seen one guy do it, but it didn't look as sharp as you would think. I think he used leather luster. I wouldn't use polish as it would get all over uniforms, seats, and equipment once it gets in the GA heat. When I was in basic training, we would be standing at attention for inspection and the polish would melt off till you had a 'puddle' of polish under your foot.

        You know what their is something you can try. Contact any smaller manufacturer that sells Hi-Gloss and also basket weave, just let them know what you are looking for and maybe you might be able to find a company to do it. No offense to them but I doubt a company like Safariland would be willing to give it a try. The main issue you might find is that these items might be expensive for a while since they would be sort of "one off" items. If you do find a company let me know too!

          Other officer: Oh that's right, I forgot, you're God's gift to police work.
          Me: At least someone recognizes it.

          Turns out basic police work isn't so hard, you just have to leave the station.

            Oddly, I used nylon for a while and was having back problems and then I switched to a full leather setup and (knock on wood) I have not had a single back problem since I started wearing it which was months ago...

            As far as Hi-Gloss Basketweave...well..as the old saying goes "you can't polish a turd...." ;-)
