5.11 Tactical isn’t playing around. The Irvine, Calif.-based company is looking to continue its dominance in the gear, apparel and accessories space by unleashing a ton of new products at SHOT Show 2018. See the press release below to see what’s in store for this year.
inspired by 5.11’s battle-tested backpacks, the new Rapid Origin Pack is an ideal mission-ready pack. Lightweight and medium-sized, the Rapid Origin features multiple quick-release and adjustable straps to customize the fit. A web platform on the front allows pouches or gear to be added, and there is a secure CCW compartment and an internal admin panel. Built with a large, drop-front inverted U opening, the interior is easy to access and includes a padded laptop compartment. ($84.99)
The new Aerial Shirt is made using dissolving yarn technology, resulting in a highly breathable, moisture-wicking garment that features breathe-through ventilation and excellent air flow. The Aerial includes 5.11’s proprietary RAPIDraw placket for easy access to a concealed carry weapon. ($49.99) The Have a Knife Day Shirt is a button-down, built with a RAPIDraw placket for easy access to a concealed carry weapon. It features a subtle knife print pattern in its lightweight cotton/polyester fabric. Small bellows under the neck yoke offer easier movement for everyday wear. ($49.99)
5.11’s new Cupron Socks make the most of copper’s natural anti-microbial properties. Cupron’s anti-fungal fibers prevent the growth of, while also killing 99.9% of T mentagrophytes, athlete’s foot fungus. The socks feature moisture-wicking polyester with a Cupron copper heel and toe, as well as compression zones designed for fit and all-day comfort. ($24.99/3 pack)
