Today at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market, 5.11 Tactical announced three new additions to its line of purpose-built tactical apparel and accessories. Debuting as part of the company's brand new Fall/Winter 2015 catalog are the Ignitor Backpack—a load-bearing bag that provides comfort and durability during long treks—the Taclite Anorak Jacket—a versatile piece that's exceptionally useful for changing environments—and the Rapid Response Long Sleeve Polo, which offers a combination of moisture-wicking and flexibility for full range of motion.
"Innovation drives every level of our product development at 5.11 and our Fall collection is no exception," said 5.11 Tactical CEO Tom Davin. "Each new product is crafted with precision to outfit professionals and enthusiasts who share our mindset of preparedness."
Each product is designed for maximum functionality and comfort, while demonstrating the durable and high-quality features of 5.11 Tactical. Additional features include:
- Ignitor Backpack— a lightweight, structurally-enhanced backpack with new tactical features. The belt panels are both Thumbdrive holster and SlickStick compatible. Constructed from a rugged Zephyr suspension system with aerospace mesh for improved ventilation and comfort, the Ignitor Backpack allows for comfort, even while carrying heavy loads and a hydration compartment fitting standard water bladder systems. The pack goes further in adaptability in offering both a RUSH Tier scabbard platform and MOLLE compatible exterior. Retails for $184.99, available in Black and Sandstone.
- Taclite Anorak—the Anorak is a functional jacket made of 5.11's exclusive poly-cotton blend Taclite fabric which offers durability and comfort for versatile environments. Featuring a 100% cotton flannel lining offering 40g of insulation and Quixip patented technology for two-way zipping that extends through the sleeve to allow for underarm venting, the Taclite Anorak easily transitions from cool climates to hot conditions while maintaining comfort. Added durability comes from a Teflon finish for stain and soil resistance. Functionality is found in the jacket's kangaroo-style pockets that feature 5.11's Rapiddraw pass-through access to a concealed firearm. Retails for $149.99, available in Stone, Brown, and Tundra.
- Rapid Response Long Sleeve Polo—perfect for all-day wear, the Rapid Response polo wicks away moisture to keep dry and the two-way mechanical stretch fabric found on the collar and shoulders along with the full gusseted construction ensures complete range of motion. Snag resistant, the Rapid Response LS Polo is equipped with anti-microbial technology that inhibits growth of bacteria, a YKK zip secure chest pocket, and Duraflex ring snaps to be prepared for any situation. Retails for $64.99, available in Volcanic, Silver Pine, and Sage Green.
