Big Screen Tactical
In 1995, HEAT captivated audiences with a new take on the classic cops and robbers motif.
In an era dominated by pithy one liners, wacky villians, and invincible main characters, HEAT's action hinges on grounded, realistic violence.
The pacing is excruciating. The villians are competent. Michael Mann's gunfights are loud, unforgiving, and claustraphobic.
That One Scene
HEAT culminates in a nearly 15 minute bank heist (and shootout) in the center of downtown Los Angeles.
This sequence was heavily influenced by the film's ex-SAS technical advisors — as showcased by Val Kilmer's beautiful reloads and bounding movements.
This moment is also notable for the sheer variety of modern fireams on display: from the FN FAL and FNC to the Galil ARM, and Colt 733.
The Heat Rig
Over the years the bank heist sequence also gained recognition for it's props. Specifically the concealable vest used by De Niros' crew.
Fans of the film all react the same way when they see it: "OK, I need that. Badly." And we can't blame them. The 'Heat' rig reflects the sort of improvised proto-tactical that inspired a generation of modern webbing we take for granted today.
Our custom-run mesh has the perfect balance of flexibility & firmness.
The thin, supportive material conceals well, breathes easily, and naturally moves with your body.
Our strapping mimics modern soft amor, with flat elastic webbing that conceals well and won't catch on cover garments.
Unlike 'lace corset' designs, our vest wont loosen or tangle.
Made in the USA
Our rig is cut and sewn in the USA by an experienced Berry compliant manufacturer.
