5.11 Tactical revamps its 2019 apparel lineup with more colors and a more fitted look for both its spring and fall collections.
5.11 Tactical’s Kristen Gooding told Guns.com that the company is continuing its trend of creating apparel that works on or off the range, without an overtly tactical theme. In an effort to further revamp its clothing, 5.11 Tactical is offering slimmer and trimmer fits with a tapered look for both its pants, jackets and shirts.
Appearing on both the women’s and men’s sides, the pants have been redesigned with a more modern fit that tapers as it continues down the body. The apparel still retains key features 5.11 Tactical is known for like extra pockets for magazine storage, wide belt loops, reinforced knee areas and different blends of material to allow for flex and movement.

Gooding said that after listening to consumers, the company made the move to revamp its current lineup with more modern fits. “A lot of people feel that previous apparel is a little saggy and baggy, but you’re not going to have any problems with that anymore,” she said.
