    Which style do you prefer: nylon, plain, basketweave, or high gloss? Are you issued a certain type or do you choose?

    My vote is: plain (nice looking, but not cowboy-ish) :-)

        i'm partial to basketweave AND nylon. i wear plain now but when i get my class b in july i'm reverting to nylon. Nylon is just much lighter and more comfortable to wear.

          I wear nylon gear now, and will never go back to leather. Having said that, I still love the look of basketweave.

            Basketweave looks great when you have a formal occasion. Nylon works best for all occasions!

                I prefer nylon. Started out in Basketweave leather, went to nylon and have not looked back.

                  I prefer the accumold elite, basketweave look but with nylon performance.

                  Thats what I presently wear and am pretty happy with it. I will never wear real leather!

                    Nylon. It is just so much easier to maintain.

                      I got this same stuff. I like it...looks like real leather, wears like nylon. Easy to clean and maintain. Even has velcro on the back side of it so you can stick it to your velcro dress belt. I have worn it for about 6 years now. I lost my leather sam browne.

                        I wear nylon. It was what is provided to use and mandated in our policies. It is lightweight and comfortable.

                          I (we) wear basketweave with brass hardware. Polishing the brass can be a pain because you have to do it a lot in the humid regions. I have nylon stuff too, and frankly I hate it. I actually think the leather is far more comfortable, and it along with a real police uniform looks better than nylon and BDUs. Afterall, we're cops not commandos.
