I purchased these not expecting much, and just to have an extra emergency set, in case my normal duty cuffs grew legs and walked away, as they tend to sometimes do in our large department. I expected the normal, flimsy feeling cuffs you get on amazon for the same price; I couldnt have been more wrong.These are easily my main cuffs now, and have thus far performed way better than the usual suspects or brands we all use. Solid construction, absolutely no need tobreak them in”, and I feel confident relying on these cuffs being my main cuffs, because the reality of any handcuffs we buy, is that lives are very much depending upon them. That being said, I doubt I will buy another brand ever again, over the next 22 years left of my career (but who is counting?).
I for one am a bit of a fan of Chicago Handcuffs. Quality and price! My uses are lighter duty, working outside, long storage time, so I opt for stainless. Chicago Handcuffs are the best balance for the price.
