5.11 Tactical’s yearly April Fool’s Day joke turned real product, the Tactical Duty Kilt, is available once again. This time, you can get it in the following colorways: Battle Brown, Black, Kryptek Mandrake, MultiCam, Storm, TDU Green, and TDU Khaki.
As always, this is a limited run product, so get yours while you can.
To 5.11’s credit, these aren’t called “Tactical Yoga Pants”, but that’s basically how they were introduced to me by the booth rep, so the title stays. These are actually called the Women’s Raven Range Capri. Described as the “perfect blend of traditional yoga pant and range apparel”, the Raven Range Capris are made of stretch Ponte di Roma fabric, and are antimicrobial and moisture-wicking. The Raven Range Capris come complete with belt loops and abrasion panels for a belt and holster, and also feature secure utility pockets.
The Capris come in Black and Tundra.
5.11 Tactical came up with their own ‘gun camo’, which is a camouflage-inspired design that uses the silhouettes of more than a few popular and/or iconic firearms. This cap in particular, which features the pattern, is made from polyester fabric with a dobby mesh six panel design, adjustable fit, and integrated sweatband.
The 5.11 Gun Camo Cap seems to be the only product currently available on the official 5.11 Tactical website that uses the Gun Camo, however they’ve also done a line of beanies, also available in Brown and Grey, that are available from numerous online retailers.
5.11 Tactical is getting into the Halloween spirit with the Gnome of the Living Dead shirt. Any purchase of $75 or more qualifies customers for the shirt, which is an athletic cut, preshrunk poly/cotton blend, with a tapered and shoulder line.
Use promo code ZGNOME with any qualifying order.
In case you missed the April Fool’s Day announcement, 5.11 Tactical is in fact bringing back the TDK – Tactical Duty Kilt. Originally started as their 2013 April Fool’s Day prank, demand for the TDK led 5.11 to actually release the product, albeit for a limited time only. Now, they’re releasing it again (for a limited time only, again) starting April 15th. Additionally, $10 from the sale of every TDK will go towards supporting We Salute You Veterans and the FIBNAA.
Companies Collaborate to Release 511 U.S. Manufactured Strider/5.11 Strider Military Folder Knife
MODESTO, Calif. (Feb. 13, 2014) — 5.11 Tactical®, the global innovator of tactical gear, today announced that the company has partnered with leading knife manufacturer, Strider™ Knives, to release the Strider/5.11 Strider Military Folder (SMF), a custom-designed tactical knife. Made in the U.S., the knife, which is manufactured with CTS-B75P steel for ultimate corrosion and wear resistance, brings together two companies with a common ethos—to make high-quality, functional products based on feedback from those who work in the field. As a limited-edition product, there will only be 511 knives made. Each piece, available at www.511tactical.com later this month, will include a custom nylon case, a “Raider” patch inspired by the WWII Marine Raiders’ patch and a certificate of authenticity signed by Tom Davin, 5.11 Tactical Chief Executive Officer, and Strider Knives Co-owner, Duane Dwyer.
“From the product’s design, to its durability and U.S. manufacturing, the Strider/5.11 SMF knife reflects the core values, mission and ethos of both 5.11 Tactical and Strider Knives,” said Davin. “We’ve long admired the work of Duane Dwyer and the whole Strider Knives team. Collaborating with the Strider experts to create a knife that fits the needs of our combined customer base has been a unique, yet organic, partnership resulting in a beautiful, limited-edition product.”
With a sleek design, rooted in simplicity, the Strider/5.11 SMF knife is engineered with minimum components while staying true to the key components Strider Knives have become known for, including a titanium slab frame lock, a glass epoxy laminate handle and a rough peel surface for positive grip. The blade design is a drop point, hand flat ground with a simple break on the spine and no false edge.
“The Strider/5.11 SMF knife is truly a work of craftsmanship,” said Dwyer. “By engineering with utilitarian requirements in mind, we’ve created a knife that is both a workhorse and a battlefield companion—regardless of where your battle takes place. The subtle yet impactful features are demonstrative of the commitment to quality both companies were founded on and remain committed to.”
The Strider/5.11 SMF knife boasts one-of-a-kind features including a custom-made pivot pin, custom fasteners and a Titanium handle with G10 scales. For durability and long-lasting performance, this is the first Strider knife to incorporate CTS-B75P steel—an alloy from Carpenter Technologies that that is highly resistant to corrosion and wear—allowing users to more easily maintain a sharp edge for an extended period of time.
The Strider/5.11 SMF knife can be purchased on 511tactical.com later this month and will retail for $599.99.
Many tactical gear manufacturers have taken to introducing various shades of Grey into their available color options, and 5.11 Tactical is no exception, with their own Storm Grey color. Developed from research proving its functionality in a range of urban and naval environments, Storm Grey has been integrated into 18 products in the 5.11 Tactical portfolio, including gear packs like the RUSH and MOAB series, TacTec protective chest products, VTAC mag and utility pouches, clothing options, boots, and more. The TacTec Plate Carrier and XPRT 2.0 Boot will also be available in Storm Grey later this year.
There’s a new IWB holster available from 5.11 Tactical. Details here.
I’m sure plenty of you remember 5.11’s April Fool’s Day joke, the Tactical Duty Kilt. I’m sure you also remember that the response was so positive that they were going to do an actual run of the kilts. Well, that day has come, or at least the day to pre-order your kilt has come. They’ll be available in three colors: TDU Khaki, TDU Green, and Black, in sizes 28 to 54. Sadly, 5.11 isn’t accommodating the purchasing of MultiCam kilts (my preferred choice) at this time, but one can only hope.
