Gear

To be able to operate and be protected in CQB environments the right gear is essential

Flame Retardant Undergarments
Worn directly next to the skin the undergarments protect the operator from non flame retardant materials. They also protect against heat transfer and possible injury to the wearer. On top of that a one-piece assault suit made of flame-retardant material, that includes a hood, reinforced knee / elbow pads, colour tag pouch, nomex balaclava and gloves.

Bullet-proof Vest
Designed to stop a round and also absorb its kinetic energy, ceramic armour plates cover the front and back.
Rappelling harness, that allows the operator to descend down buildings if needed. A braking device that automatically stop the descend if the operator let's go of the device.  

Assault Vest
Assault vests have many features. These include magazine pouches/ rings for attaching stun and tear gas grenades.
Pistol holsters that support mounted light on the gun. On the belt a weapon catch to secure the weapon when not in use. On the back a first aid pouch.
Thigh rigs with two stun grenades and one mp5 magazine.

When deciding what to use for head protection there are many choices. Some teams always use
respirators providing protection against CS and CN gas and smoke. It can be fitted with anti-Flash lenses, internal mic and interfaces for external oxygen supply and radio systems. If not in use the respirator the will be will shoved up the operator's arm.
There are two types of helmets, armoured which is able to stop a 9mm round at close range, and light that only provide protection against bumps. All operators use some form of ear protection.

Newer vests that combine armour protection and Modular pouches are getting more popular
