First Tactical's Defender Series is performance built to handle all high-level missions while maintaining the professional look needed when on normal patrol. In the performance department, specialized pockets provide ample space for oversized gear, a specialized yoke helps eliminate unwanted bulk, and oversized sleeve pockets accept patches or embroidery.

The Defender Series uses a two-way, mechanical stretch NYCO fabric with wicking that is ideal for warm weather. Articulated elbows, running gussets, and vented mesh locations provide advanced movement and breathability to make hot days with full gear a little easier.

The Defender Shirt is made with a 6.5oz, 100% polyester jersey body designed to be snag- and wrinkle resistant and moisture-wicking fibers and a anti-microbial finish. The professional quarter-zip front features a fold-down collar and yoke made to maintain its shape throughout the life of the product. Zippered sleeve pockets feature a large Velcro panel that accepts embroidery or large patches. An elbow pad compartment works hand-in-hand with First Tactical Elbow Pads (currently available) and the coming-soon Defender Elbow Pads.

The Defender Pants are a cotton and Cordura nylon mix with a mechanical 2-way stretch double ripstop and moisture-wicking finish. First Tactical's "Double Tough Knee" features an extra layer of welded reinforcement and a zippered side access pocket that accepts First Tactical's Defender Knee Pads (coming soon). The pants feature a Comfort Flex Action Waist, reinforced belt loops, and over 25 pockets.
