We get it – finding the perfect gift can be challenging, no matter who you’re shopping for. Those of us here at Tactical Distributors want to help, which is why we created this gift guide featuring the must have tactical gear for 2023. In this post, we’ll be sharing our top picks for cool tactical gear that you can find right here at TD. By the time we’re through, you’ll have plenty of ideas and inspiration for choosing a gift that they’ll truly love.
  1. Multitasker TWIST
    The first piece of must have tactical gear that we want to highlight is the Multitasker TWIST Phantom Grey. This is a pen-shaped multitool that comes with everything you need for weapon maintenance and optic/sight adjustments. It’s been CNC machined from T-6061 aluminum and then given a Type 3 Mil-Spec Hard Anodized finish for enhanced durability. Multitools make great gifts for the tactical lover in your life since they’re practical and can be helpful in a variety of scenarios.

  2. Tactical Gloves
    Speaking of practical gifts, let’s talk about tactical gloves! People who work in tactical environments are always using their hands, so they need to keep them safe and protected. If they need to be able to pull their weapon and make the shot when it matters most or be able to use their radio or other communication devices, wearing the wrong gloves can sometimes be the difference between life and death. So when it comes to choosing a pair of tactical gloves to give as a gift, you want to make sure you’re selecting a high-quality pair. At Tactical Distributors, we have a wide variety of gloves specifically designed for tactical use. The Viktos Coldshot Glove and the next gen PIG Full Dexterity Tactical (FDT) Alpha Gloves are great options. 

  3. First Aid Kits
    First aid kits are a must-have for anyone working in a tactical field, so if the person you’re shopping for doesn’t have one (or theirs needs an upgrade), this can be a great gift that they’ll really appreciate. We have a few different kit options to choose from, depending on their needs. The NAR Green Mini First Aid Kit (M-FAK) with Combat Gauze is a solid option that packs essential equipment, so they are ready for any situation. Another great EDC kit that we recommend is the BFG Belt Mounted Micro Trauma Advanced Kit. Whether they’re dealing with a combat injury, a first responder incident, or a hunting accident, this kit has everything they’d need to patch things up.

  4. Tactical Socks 
    Socks might seem like a relatively simple gift, but they’re something that most people wear every day. And for the tactical gear lover in your life, a high-quality pair of socks can make all the difference, especially for long days at work or in the field. At Tactical Distributors, we offer a wide variety of socks to choose from, so you’re sure to find the perfect pair. For those who prefer a traditional look, the TD Bolt Socks 3-Pack – Ranger Green and Coyote Tan are very comfortable and offer plenty of support. If you feel like changing things up, choose a pair of colorful Battle Briefs socks in funky patterns, such as the Battle Briefs Socks Unicorn.

  5. Sunglasses
    You can never go wrong with a pair of sunglasses, and our selection of tactical eyewear includes a wide variety of styles to choose from. Check out classic silhouettes like the Oakley SI Ojector Matte Black w/ Prizm Grey Polarized glasses, or go for something unique like the Heat Wave Lazer Face 787 Sunblast Polarized ones. No matter your budget, you’ll find a great pair of sunglasses here! 

  6. Military and Tactical Backpacks 
    If you’re looking for cool tactical gear to gift to a loved one, a new tactical backpack is a great choice. Whether they’re in the field, on a mission, or on an outdoor adventure, a high-quality backpack can help give them peace of mind, knowing that their belongings are safe and secure. The Viktos 25L Backpack and the Bravo Co. Sierra Block I are two of our favorites. No matter which option you choose, just keep in mind that tactical backpacks can be on the pricier side. You definitely get what you’re paying for in terms of quality and durability.
