Your feet carry your weight every day. Putting your feet under stress by wearing the wrong footwear or carrying a heavy load every day can lead to foot pain, which can also result in knee and lower back alignment issues in the long run. One in 10 people seeks treatment for Plantar Fasciitis at some point in their life according to the Pedorthic Association of Canada. People who have Plantar Fasciitis often experience foot pain, usually concentrated in the heels, that intensifies as the day goes on. It is usually caused by straining the ligament that supports your arch. This is more likely to happen:

• if you have excessive pronation when you walk
• if you have high arches or flat feet
• if you are overweight or carrying a heavy load all the time.
• if you walk, stand, or run for long periods, especially on hard surfaces or uneven terrains.

While having a great pair of footwear would help prevent and relieve any discomfort in the feet, an excellent pair of insoles will ensure your feet can have the best support and comfort. FORM Insoles are designed to alleviate and often eliminate Plantar Fasciitis. Its unique shape cradles your foot, minimizing friction to reduce blisters and the arch support prevents overpronation while you walk. Their reinforced heel support helps absorb shock, so you can move faster with confidence. Treatment for Plantar Fasciitis includes prescribed custom orthotics, which could cost around $200-$800 a pair, FORM insoles provide an extremely affordable alternative to prescriptions. There are two ways to customize your insoles. FORM insoles can go to work right out of the box. Within a few days of normal wear, your insoles will naturally form to your unique foot shape. For faster customization, you can warm up your insoles in an oven, watch this video to see a more detailed explanation.

Besides the more competitive price point, FORM insoles create a more rigid and durable structure to the footwear. They often will also increase the lifespan of your footwear. FORM insoles are re-usable and can be re-moulded to be used in multiple pairs of shoes. They can be heat-mould up to 5 times.

911 Supply offers two version of the FORM insoles: FORM insole Maximum and FORM insole Reinforced. Both versions are suitable for all work boots, hiking boots and winter boots. The reinforced model is designed for users over 200 lbs. This also includes users below 200lbs who plan on carrying weight in excess of that. (For examples, backpacks.) If you are interested in trying them out, please stop by our store, we can also heat-mould your new insoles for you so you can put them to work right away!

Monthly Dispatch August 2019

It has been a tremendously busy year for the Cleveland-based Team Wendy, which researches and develops high-quality head borne systems.  

The Carbon helmet has undergone some design changes which makes it even better than before. 911 Supply is also pleased to be awarded the contract to supply these new helmets to the Department of National Defence and specialized RCMP units. For more info on this, check out the link below from a recent Soldier Systems media release. 
Read the Media Release
Team Wendy has also released some pretty innovative accessories. The EXFIL All-Terrain Mandible (non-ballistic) provides the added protection for the face and ears from blunt impacts. There is also the EXFIL Ballistic Mandible that is the next step up for individuals wanting fragmentation protection. Ballistic helmets now have the ability to mount a full-face shield. The EXFIL Face Shield is a great accessory for any individual who requires face protection with unhindered visibility for situational awareness. The protection offered by a full-cut helmet has not been lost on Team Wendy. The new EXFIL Ballistic Ears provides scalable ballistic protection that offers greater coverage than a full cut helmet with modular quick installs without any tools. 

For more details on these new and exciting Team Wendy gear, please see the specification below. (Click on photos to zoom in) For you wish to contact someone at 911 Supply, please feel free to reach out to us at
The EXFIL® Carbon shell is made of high-strength, lightweight carbon fibre and features a Wilcox® W shroud for mounting night vision devices. The Zorbium® foam liner provides the highest level of comfort and ultimate impact protection. The CAM FIT™ retention with Boa® Fit System and Cam-Lock sliders ensures a secure fit and is compatible with tactical communication headsets. The EXFIL® Rail 2.0 Accessory Kit is compatible with all EXFIL® accessories and features T-slots for custom mounting.
The EXFIL® Face Shield is a low-profile, lightweight face shield system that mounts quickly and tool-free to the front section of the EXFIL® Rail 3.0. The EXFIL® Face Shield comes standard with a flexible upper flange to prevent debris and liquid from seeping into the wearer’s eyes from the brim of the helmet. It quickly adjusts into three preset positions (down, up and stowed), allowing the wearer to fully utilize the Wilcox® W shroud for headlamps, cameras, night vision or thermal imaging devices while also running the face shield.
The EXFIL® Ballistic Mandible mounts quickly and tool-free to the front section of the EXFIL® Rail 2.0 or EXFIL® Rail 3.0, protecting the face and ears from fragmentation while still allowing the user to cheek his/her weapon. It is compatible with the EXFIL® Ballistic or EXFIL® Ballistic SL of respective size fitted with either accessory rail system.

The EXFIL® Ballistic Mandible comes standard with two interchangeable nose pieces: a ballistic nose with a Cordura® and nylon/spandex blend cover, and a non-ballistic, all-terrain nose with vents to allow for additional airflow.
EXFIL® Ballistic Ear Covers (set of two) provide scalable ballistic protection and are quickly and easily installed without tools onto any EXFIL® Ballistic or EXFIL® Ballistic SL helmet.
