Chicago 26" Hardened Steel Baton - Black
Chicago 26" Hardened Steel Baton - Black:This Chicago Tactical Baton comes with a black finish on the two extending steel shafts for a sleeker, more subtle look. Measuring up to 26” at full extension (our largest size for this model), this quality baton is best used for security and personal protection. Our friction locking Chicago Batons can be easily deployed with a firm outward swing and retracts by swiftly striking the tip straight down on the ground from a vertical position. The handle features a rubber diamond textured grip that helps maintain control under extreme conditions. Also includes a Nylon Baton Case fitted for your baton.
Didn't have very high expectations but was pleased upon arrival. Sturdy, nice grip, lacking some weight on it but not a bad buy at all.
I received the baton, but it did not come with the glass breaker. After notifying the company, they stated them would send it out so I'm happy!
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.
