The belt and equipment aren't too bad. Now hauling my fat butt after someone is a bit of a trial. ;)

You get used to it, after a while you don't even notice it's there. Until it gets caught on something during the chase.

You dont notice the belt being on until something falls off. The weight depends 10 to 20 lbs, I guess?

I agree with the others, after awhile you get use to it. I notice mine the most when I'm running up a long set of stairs. My entire uniform weighs about 15 lbs.

At least 20 pounds. But when I chase I usually am not thinking of how heavy my belt is or how far I have run. But the only thing I am thinking about is I hope he stops soon. Why chase? You have a car.

LOL, you get use to carrying all that crap. Although over the years I have managed to lighten the load, smaller flashlights, different equipment material etc.

I got a small waist so I don't have all the NEAT TOYS to bring with me. I'm the runner in our group. With all the adrenilin pumping, you really don't think about it until you need it. Weight 10.3 lbs.

doesn't it suck having a small waist / being thin?

lol when i worked security my belt fell down a lot. i cant imagine how bad it'll be when i attach more than just a flashlight and a radio in a couple months as a deputy.

All thats is needed for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.
