High gloss duty gear is somewhat popular here in Michigan. Grand Rapids PD, Kent County SD, Lansing PD, Kalamazoo PD, Portage PD and many others use it. Depending on what the uni looks like, it can look great or not so great :uc:
It is a bit more difficult to run; breeches are actually looser in the crotch and seat then regular slacks, but very tight in the knees. We deal with it :wink: , I've caught many a running suspect in my ol' boots and breeches. The field boots are far more comfortable then the regular summer jump boots we wear, probably because they are custom-fitted . I could wear them all day and night with no complaints. As far as duty gear goes, we all wear high-gloss clarino, as most of you know.
