5.11 Introduces 3 New Pants Styles for Fall
Coming soon are the Stryke Pant with Flex-Tac™, Taclite Jean-Cut, and Covert Khaki 2.0

Modesto, CA- 5.11 Tactical Series is once again at the forefront of their field, leading the industry in tactical innovation. 5.11 Tactical is releasing three new and updated pants styles this fall, each with cutting-edge elements and elevating industry standards. The new pants and styles are designed to fit a wide range of unique public safety situations: hands-on duty situations, range training, office tasks, or a mix of all of these. These pants will be the new look for the tactical professional.

A revolutionary new cargo, the 5.11 Stryke Pant with Flex-Tac™ is the next generation
of the 5.11 Tactical Pant. Flex-Tac™ is a revolutionary fabric utilizing proprietary fibers and developed  exclusively for 5.11 Tactical. The lightweight, breathable, poly/cotton ripstop incorporates mechanical stretch yarns, meaning the stretch and recovery of the fabric is achieved without the use of spandex. As a result, the breathability, color retention, and durability of the Flex-Tac is superior to other cotton/spandex fabrics currently in the market.

The 5.11 Stryke Pant with Flex-Tac is soil, stain and fade resistant, and comes out of the wash ready-to-wear. There are 10 pockets in all: 2 off-seam side pockets, 2 accessory pockets on each side, 2 back flap Velcro® secured wallet pockets, and low slanted cargo pockets with easy accessibility are on featured on each leg. The knees are discreetly reinforced with knee pad access inside. The self adjusting comfort waist will make these your favorite casual pants, and the front belt loops double as a badge holder. Available in Black, Khaki, and TDU Green. $69.99

5.11 TacticaTaclite Jean-Cut Pantl has taken a traditional jean and given it tactical functionality: the new 5.11 Taclite Jean-Cut is made of the popular Taclite fabric but with cut and styling like a 5-pocket jean. A new 5+4 pocket style was created, as there are 9 pockets total, including 4 multi-use pockets that can store magazines, cell phones or knives.

Made of 6.14 oz ploy/cotton ripstop, this pant is wrinkle and fade resistant fabric and treated with Teflon®, perfect for wash and wear performance. Discreet reinforced knee panels allow for ease at the range, and a diamond gusset increases the range of motion. This pant is a relaxed fit with a fixed waistband and has a straight leg that fits easily over boots, keeping its structure no matter the circumstances. A hybrid of the best of a denim jean and the Taclite pant, the revolutionary Taclite Jean-Cut will change the way you think of “off-duty.” Available in Khaki, Charcoal, TDU Green, and Dark Navy. $49.99

A popular khaki for covert purposes has been reenginnered with 5.11 innovation. The Covert Khaki 2.0 was created with end-user feedback to create the ideal law enforcement profeCovert Khaki 2.0ssional covert pant. Designed for undercover operators or plain clothes officers, the 5.11 Covert Khaki 2.0 cleverly disguises features designed for situations from VIP security to undercover work.

5.11 Tactical has hidden the pockets so that the Covert Khaki 2.0 look like a regular pair of casual dress slacks, while keeping performance features and on-the-job functionality. Permanent creases and a flat front ensure that a professional look right out of the dryer. Made with a midweight 7.25 ounce, wrinkle and fade resistant blend of poly/cotton twill and treated with Teflon®, the 5.11 Covert Khaki 2.0 pants are soil and stain resistant and come out of the wash ready-to-wear. A genuine YKK® zipper and bartacks in high stress areas mean that the pants will stand up to any job. A tunnel waistband allows for some flexibility in sizing and comfort and the belt loops can accommodate a 1.5 inch casual leather belt for concealed carry.

The Covert Khaki 2.0 pants feature a total of 6 pockets: two traditional style front pockets, two standard rear pockets with button closure, and two concealed vertical thigh pockets with zippers hidden along the side seams. These pockets are great for concealing keys, a Smartphone, documents, or a 5.11 Tactical® knife for quick access when needed. Perfect to wear while on security detail for the President. Available in Black and Khaki. $49.99
