Just what I wanted. Holder doesn't meet department policy but knew that from start.Light wait comfortable for a big guy to wear.
Baton is Great ! Holder is nice and solid ! Great Belt Snap Option ! The only issue is that the baton sounds shaky when you walk , like something is loose inside . Could make it Quieter in the future ?
Rattles quite a bit in the collapsed position in the case when walking. Hard to be stealth on foot. I would also prefer a holster that allows for a better access to the baton grip. The aggressive grip while good for tactical applications created a challenge for deploying quickly as the holster is pretty deep
Pretty impressed with this 21" baton. Solidly constructed and built to withstand the intended use. It is easily deployed and will remain deployed until forcefully closed on a firm surface. The grip is secure allowing a tactile feel with zero slippage. While the included holster works well as is, I would prefer a holster that is horizontally mounted(it is modifiable to do so at least). It shipped quickly and was in hand within days. Quiet comfort for times when a louder option isn't desired.
Handle/grip is really what separates this from my old straight baton (asp), lost my old one from slipping out my hand (during a work incident) but this one has a much more secure grip and will not slip. Only issue is the holder for the gun belt could be made a little bit smaller, feel it diggin' in my back when sitting
