5.11 Tactical has introduced four packs and pouches designed for the undercover operative that allow officers to stow necessary gear while maintaining their anonymity.

The new packs and pouches arrive this month in the company's COVRT and Concealed Carry product lines — the COVRT  M4, COVRT Z.A.P. (Zone Assault Pack), COVRT Pistol Pouch, and COVRT Tech Sleeve.

The packs are ideal for drug operatives, gang task forces, surveillance, and VIP security, according to the company.


The COVRT M4 is a "sleek new street backpack" that conceals a collapsed-stock, loaded, M4 rifle with a 30-round AR magazine, according to the company. Features an internal padded barrel pocket, internal retention strap, lockable zippers, and two external pockets: one large enough to carry and conceal a bail-out bag and the other with the Roll-down Assault Compartment (R.A.C.).

The R.A.C. rolls down like a tent flap revealing a hook-and-loop ID panel and rows of web platform for attaching additional pouches. The ambidextrous sling-style bag fits comfortably over the shoulder and includes a sternum strap attachment and front Velcro QuickTact compatible strap. Available in Asphalt/Black or True Navy/Asphalt. Starting at $149.99.

COVRT Z.A.P (Zone Assault Pack)

The new COVRT Z.A.P. is an ambidextrous carry pack that conceals essential first response or off-duty gear and doubles as a compact plate carrier. The Z.A.P. fills dual roles with organization for work or play. It includes a hydration compartment and pass-through hydration valve channels; mesh water bottle pockets; aerospace mesh padding on the shoulder and body-side panels to maintain comfort, protection, and venting; an admin pocket with internal organization for pens, highlighters, business cards, cords, and key-chain fobs; tech-pocket sleeve with eyelet pass-through for ear buds; large main compartment with padded tablet PC sleeve with retention strap; and two internal zippered pockets. The oversized, fleece-lined sunglass pocket protects eyewear or small hand-held devices from getting scratched.

When the situation changes, be ready with the ambidextrous Back-up Belt System holster pocket, hidden channels for flex-cuff storage, and pull-out hidden agenda ID panel. Available in Asphalt/Black. Starting at $119.99.

COVRT Pistol Pouch

There are three ways to carry the new 5.11 COVRT Pistol Pouch: on a QuickTact sleeve, Back-up Belt System, or on Bladetech's Molle-Lok System (sold separately) attached to web platform. Ambidextrous pull-tabs on the main compartment will conceal a compact pistol with a four-inch barrel or less. Hidden agenda pull-tab for ID plate or Velcro badge. Outer pocket fits two pistol mags. Available in Asphalt/Black. Starting at $34.99.

COVRT Tech Sleeve

Similar to the COVRT Pistol Pouch, the new 5.11 Tech Sleeve is compatible with the QuickTact sleeve, the Back-up Belt System, or on Bladetech's Molle-Lok System (sold separately) attached to web platform. Tech sleeve will safely store a Smartphone, GPS, iPod, or MP3 player by holding it in place with an elastic retention band. Hidden agenda pull-out tab for ID plate or Velcro badge. Available in Asphalt/Black. Starting at $17.99.
