The 26" Chicago brand steel baton is a great product. In my search for a defensive baton I investigated several brands I found offered on the internet. Posted reviews showed a number of people were disappointed with their orders from other sites. When I found Baton Warehouse it was clear they offered top-of-the-line products from various manufacturers. It seemed reasonable that they would know quality. They claimed their own baton was a very, good product at a more reasonable price. I ordered the 26" baton and was surprised to find a carry holster included. The baton works great and really is a quality product. Thank you.
I had originally intended to buy a Smith & Wesson baton, but the price of the comparable Chicago Baton product was so attractive that I decided to give it a try. I am very glad I did. The Chicago Baton appears to be an excellent product - solid, well-built, easy to deploy (and close, with a good straight downward impact on a hard surface). Best of all, it is manufactured in Taiwan (as opposed to mainland China). The shipping charge was fair and the package arrived much more quickly than I had anticipated.
Now, for a disclaimer. I am a prosecutor, not a police officer, so I won’t be carrying this baton every day. Those who constantly put themselves in harm’s way should talk with their fellow officers regarding whether a more expensive baton may be a better choice. But the Chicago Baton will serve my purposes and I commend Baton Warehouse for making it available.
