The Hatch D1 Patrol Police Supply Bag

by Jeff on December 12, 2011

One key to being a successful law enforcement officer is keeping your police equipment organized in a single location. This allows you to be ready to go at a moment’s notice and also ensures that you don’t misplace your flashlight, codebook, or other essential gear after going off duty or switching fleet cars.

The best way to stay organized is to use a heavy-duty police supply bag such as the Hatch D1 model. This bag is constructed of 840 denier nylon for toughness and durability, and is water resistant to protect your police equipment from the elements. And, as Rob Pincus points out in his video review, the D1 comes with the following useful features:

  • Spacious main compartment. The main interior compartment on the D1 measures 18″L x 8″W x 12″H (45.7cm x 20.3 cm x 30.5cm), which is large enough to accommodate all your necessary gear. There is also an adjustable divider that is perfect for securing a laptop or tablet.
  • Handy interior compartments. The D1 has two zippered cargo pockets and six pen/pencil pockets attached to the interior part of the lid. This design allows everything to stay in place regardless of how many times you open or close the bag.
  • Adjustable Velcro loop straps. These straps are located on the padded top of the D1 police supply bag, and help keep your baton or flashlight conveniently within reach.
  • Numerous exterior pockets. The D1 comes with seven pockets strategically placed around the exterior of the bag. These include two zippered cargo pockets that can hold a trauma kit or other police equipment; three open-top pockets for quick storage of keys or backup restraints; and two flip-top pockets for cell phones, iPods, and other gadgets.
  • Removable shoulder strap. Having a shoulder strap on your police supply bag is an underrated convenience that allows you to keep your hands free or carry additional gear while toting your regular stuff with ease.

Go ahead and watch Rob’s entire video to see his final assessment of the Hatch D1 police supply bag. Then, when you’re ready to finally get your own police equipment organized, head on over to to make your purchase!
