ASP has paired 7075 Grade Aluminum tubing and the exclusive 4140 steel tubing to create the Airweight Expandable baton. The Airweight weighs about 45% less than the other ASP Friction Loc batons yet it loses only 2% of its striking potential.

The 7075 Grade Aluminum is custom made to ASP strict tolerances. It is the same material used in the M16 receiver. The striking surface of the baton is made of 4140 Steel. This combination allows for a faster “bridge” between strikes. The Airweight is extremely strong and noticeably lighter making it easier to carry for extended periods.

No other company has produced a lightweight baton with the strength and striking potential of the ASP Airweight.

Durable Black Chrome Finish

The Black Chrome coating on this baton is a state of the art black finish for steel surfaces. It is a a true black plating and not just a paint. The final result is an extremely hard surface that will not scratch or rust. It is exceptionally durable and does not flake or peel. The Black Chrome Finish is smooth to the touch while being deep and rich in appearance.

3 Effective Grips to choose from:

Foam Grip for a more comfortable, cushioned hold. This grip is replaceable with our replacement grip kit.

Duratec Grip-These Grips are injection molded directly onto the handle of the baton. The comfortable cushioned grip is easily retained in the hand and has the feel of a custom knife or handgun grip. Internal rings lock the handle into position to prevent shifting.

The DuraTec has a clean, smooth appearance, improved grip durability, rubberized gun grip feel, and a soft textured surface.

Wavemaster Grip for increased retention in hot, wet and humid environments.The geometric arcs on the Wavemaster Grip provide raised ribs that secure the grip of the baton to the users hand. The geometrically opposed wave pattern ensures both linear and lateral retention during the most intense encounters.

The Wavemaster Grip has a soft feel and is tear resistant. The internal positioning rings make sure the grip does not become dislodged.

    I purchased the 21″ baton with the Duratec grip. It is smooth in its operation. Some practice, not a lot, is necessary in order to dial in the action necessary for consistent extension. I was on the fence about the grip and ultimately decided on the Duratec, I am glad that I did. It is comfortable and not at all slippery. While I like the extended length of the 21″ baton, at some point I will probably pick up the 16″ baton with the same grip.

    Very handy to have around. However, if you get one, get some training on how to use it.

    I recive the bastão today, I liked the quality and the weight. About the performance I still not abble to comment, because I haven’t used yet, but it seems very resistant and powerful, enough to stop the agressor.
    gostei do peso leve, e provavelmente muito resistente, pode solucionar os problemas com um fututo agressor e pode ser muito util para atividade policial, porem deve usar com moderação.

    I have always wanted an extendable baton for the obvious defensive capabilities it offers.
    I cannot speak highly enough about the quality of construction and engineering of this baton.
    I’ve learned how to easily ‘restore’ the baton into its handle and my confidence with this implement grows daily.
    If you are at all interested in an expandable defensive baton I would recommend the ASP Airweight 26″ without reservation.

    The ASP Airtight Baton is superior in craftsmanship. When deployed the balance is perfect. A side note with the Wavemaster grip using the ASP back pocket scabbard. It is necessary to use a twisting motion to draw the baton when attached horizontally on your belt. I believe the Durance grip would have been a better choice

    I rated this 4 stars simply because of the price. I feel that this tactical baton would be fairly priced at around $50.00, not almost $100.00. Other than that, this baton appears to be as promised…solid, excellent grip, quality from end to end, lightweight in comparison to the damage it can do/does, and reliable because that is by far the most important factor!

    I really like this light weight ASP. Much nicer than the heavy one it is seems like it’s just as formidable as the large, heavy one.

    I am satisfied with this baton. I bought it to carry when I go jogging. It is light weight enough to care in my hand and inconspicuous enough that people do not look twice at me.

    I walk each day and carry the baton. The weight of this baton makes it very easy to carry. Expanding it to its full length is very easy. I am most happy with the purchase and I would recommend the product.

    The airweight is super-light, but I can tell it has nearly the striking force of the full-weight models. I definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a close-contact self-defense weapon.

    I am familiar with ASP products for many years now, but have never experienced the airweight line. They are magnificent. I carry one in my pocket now when walking the dog and hardly know it’s there.

    the baton I ordered is great . I especially like the help I got from your sales department . when there was a problem with my order an email was sent to me and an alternative was given to me. I will continue to use your store for treat prices and the knowledge of the people who sell your products.

    A fantastic peacemaker. Money well spent. This is a nice addition to my self-defense arsenal. Currently, I always carry an Emerson LaGiraffe neck knife, Guardian pepper spray, and sometimes my Glock 32 (.357 sig) with Galco holster. The 21 inch ASP baton was a recomendation from “Jim Grover” aka Kelly McCann. We are both former Marine Infantry officers and have some exposure to the reality of violence. Semper Fi!

    I have used ASP batons for several years performing security work overseas. They are well-constructed, reliable and proven in the field. The Airweight 21″ baton with foam grip is the best ASP baton I have owned to date. The purchase through Baton Defense was easy and the baton was shipped quickly. Highly recommended product and dealer.

    I was very satisfied with the baton. I had a steel one, gave it to my wife and she felt it was too heavy to carry in her purse. thus my most recent purchase of the aluminum baton. the scabbard looked great but was too bulky for my uses. I will make a slimmer case.

    Lightweight, excellence quality baton. Smooth action when expanding baton and it doesn’t rattle when not expanded. I had a cheaper brand of baton before getting this one and it was heavy, didn’t expand smoothly, rattled when walking if retracted and didn’t always lock when expanded.

    I recently purchased the 16 inch Airweight Baton and couldn’t be happier. The closed size is perfect to carry in either a front or back pocket and is so light you hardly even know it’s there. The quality is outstanding and well made.

    I was, at first, very skeptical at purchasing this baton. I had heard a lot of reviews from nay-sayers about how they are poorly made and lock up all the time. Obviously they were wrong about the ASP. I have had mine for a while now, and I am very pleased with it.
    The quality is superb and it extends with very little effort. Like most people said, it does require a lot of effort to collapse. However, you get used to it, and I think this only shows how durable it is in action; it won’t collapse when you don’t want it to. It fits very nicely inside your jacket and is barely noticeable (to you; its completely unnoticeable to others).
    I have actually used it in a self-defense situation. This is a true story; I was surrounded by about 6 guys who were either going to rob me or hurt me. One had a knife. I pulled out my baton. Just that action alone, I believe, gave them a second thought and I was able to run away quickly. I like to think that showing the baton caused them to back down a little. I sure would not fight someone with one, even if I had a knife. Now, because of that incident, I always carry it wherever I go. It’s worth it.
    I have the 21″ Aluminum, with rubber handle, and I love it. My dad has the 26 inch Chrome, and he loves it, but I find it too heavy and big for easy concealed carry. Keep in mind, you need a CHL to carry it in your jacket.
    Excellent product.

    The 21″ model is small enough to fit in your jacket pocket and very lightweight. It opens smoothly with a solid feel. I keep one in each car to discourage road rage. The service provided by Miles Tactical has been excellent. It would be nice if an instructional DVD were easily available.

    .. but a bit too difficult to close (I know that this can be the norm and there are ways around this)

    In any case – I’m happy with my purchase!
