    EMT Shears
    The EMT Shears from Mil=Spec Monkey worked great for the new Trauma kit I put together. The shears fit very nicely into the small bag and they are always ready should they be needed in an emergency.
    ProsI really like the subdued black color of the metal and the color of the handles.
    ConsThe shears are a little long but that does not make them hard to store or use.

    Look and feel comparable to my other shears that were more expensive. I like the blacked out color.

    Nice Shears for the $$
    I'm not an EMT or FD or LE... just a guy who likes to be prepared and have gear that works. I haven't used these a ton yet, but I like what I see so far. First, you can't beat the price... especially for a non-professional. I like that there were a lot of color options; The bright orange I wanted was sold out (figured it would be easier to find at a campsite etc. if I dropped them), so I went with my stand-by gear color of OD Green. These are full size, but are a perfect fit in my Maxpidition Fatty Organizer. That makes it easy to keep on hand without being overt or putting them in an awkward spot. Since this is my first pair of EMT shears, I don't really have any to compare to, but I know the equipment's reputation from friends in the field that swear by having a good pair with you; on the job or off. I know these are all "tacticool" with the blacked out metal parts etc. and that's ok. I was more impressed with the price and color options. These cut right through a penny as they're reputed to do. The handles are comfortable in hand. But, the action on them is kinda stiff. I'm not sure if that's normal for these types of shears or if it is the black coating or the hinge or just the way these blades scissor. I'm hoping that they loosen up a little over time.
    ProsGreat price Good color options Full-size shears
    Consscissor action is a little stiff black finish does wear easily with use

    These EMT shears are of excellent quality. I like the non-reflective coating on the metal. They are comfortable to hold and cut through a pair of old jeans easily. Color choices and price are great?
    ProsNon-reflective coating on metal Lots of colors to choose from Reasonable price
