Walking through the SHOT Show Industry day you can’t help but to notice all the tactical cargo pants, velcro and molle webbing sewn to every square inch of nylon. I was pleasantly surprised walking up to the 5.11 Tactical tent. Yes they are known for their uber tactical clothing and gear, but this year (2017) they have an expanded line of non-descript clothing and gear available.
Visiting the 5.11 Tactical booth at SHOT Show 2017, we got a glimpse at their line of clothing meant to blend in with any urban environment. Instead of the typical baggy cargo pants that scream tactical, you can now wear a pair of 5.11 Defender Flex Jeans that are cut for a normal fit without all the cargo pockets. They are manufactured to allow for stretch during everyday movements or a day on the range. These are the perfect addition to your wardrobe if you’re looking to remain non-descript and blend in. Stay tuned for a full review of these new jeans.
From 5.11 Tactical
Whether it’s a weekend in the backcountry or a night out on the town, the Defender Flex Jeans roll with you. An innovative cotton/polyester (Lycra T400 Tough Max) mechanical stretch denim means better stretch and recovery. Five pocket styling plus two mag pockets up your tactical game.
