Irvine, Calif. (January 20, 2020) – 5.11, the global innovator of purpose-built gear, will unveil new packs, apparel, footwear and accessories at SHOT in Las Vegas, January 21 to 24, 2020. The 2020 product line will offer technical performance for everyday consumers and professionals alike.
True to the brand’s mantra, Always Be Ready, the 2020 product line offers solutions to the challenges its customers – professionals, operators, and outdoor adventurers – face in their everyday lives. 5.11’s new gear, including the A.T.L.A.S. footwear series and the Defender-Flex Range Pant, incorporate end user feedback and professional testing to ensure the gear will perform at its peak in life’s toughest environments.
After its wild success in 2019, 5.11 is continuing its Norris Sneaker line with its new colorway, Black Multicam. The casual high-top sneaker is stacked even higher with style, comfort, and tactical intelligence. The Vibram® outsole with XS Trek provides the optimal balance of traction and durability, particularly on wet surfaces, and Ortholite® technology cushions your feet in total support and comfort. The Norris is ASTM certified for puncture resistance and built with a super-strong Welmax board that guards your feet against up to 1,200 newtons of force. From the outside in, this shoe is more than show. (MSRP: $99.99).
The AMP (All Missions Pack) System continues to be a big story for 5.11 heading into 2020. The fully versatile system is introducing 2 new gear sets this year: The Utility Gear 9×9 Set™ and AMP Covert Panel. The Utility 9×9 Gear Set expands the list of options with 249 cu. in. of organized cargo space to separate and access gear. Two primary compartments and a front zippered pocket provide rugged compartmentalization, with a forward tilting 90deg maximum front compartment wall to create a work platform (MSRP: $54.99). The mission of the AMP Covert Panel is simple – to provide cover for your mission by covering up the front loop panel on AMP bags for the ultimate covert/low-vis missions. This is good for those occasions when you need to maintain a lower profile or for those jobs better served with a more streamlined pack (MSRP: $16.99). The new Prime Plate Carrier is also being introduced with the capability for Gear Set and AMPC Pack attachment. (MSRP: $109.99)
Capable and comfortable pants have been a signature of 5.11 apparel since its inception and continue to be a priority in 2020. The new Defender-Flex Range Pant in Spring 2020 adds to the bestselling line of Defender-Flex pants and jeans, built for those who require tactical performance from a casual-looking pant. The five-pocket jean styling is coupled with two additional back mag/ utility pockets with reinforced seams. A touch of elastane ensures these tough pants are also comfortable (MSRP: $74.99). The Delta Pant is a slim fit cargo pant that works as hard as you do. They allow you to climb fields of scree or hike overgrown trails without worrying about snags, tears, or busted seams. Of the Delta Pant’s nine total pockets, four – the low-profile cargo pockets and back pockets – are zip secured to hold your immediate necessities secure. Two more pockets have been hidden away in the rear yoke seams, and the hand pockets have been up-armored with Nylon 6 reinforcement (MSRP: $89.99).
New pants for women include the Women’s Apex Pant, Women’s ABR Pro Pant, and Women’s Icon Pant. The Apex, ABR Pro Pant, and Icon are adopted from the men’s line and updated with a women’s fit. The Apex offers low profile, but utilitarian, pockets and a comfort waistband (MSRP $84.99). The ABR Pro was developed with input from female professionals and boasts 5.11’s updated fade resistant utility strap, reinforced seat and knees, and an inseam gusset (MSRP $59.99). The Icon, also developed with feedback from female professionals in a wide range of careers, sports 12 pockets in a streamlined cut and features a comfort waistband and gusseted construction (MSRP $84.99).
Also new for women, the Ascent Pant is a skinny-fit, urban pant made with stretch fabric and ten low-profile pockets, including two in the back for mags and a hidden pocket at the fly (MSRP $84.99). Functional, stretchable mobility is the key asset of the slim fit Avalon Pant. Precision designed with input from female professionals at every level, this slim fit pant features reinforced back belt loops, eight pockets for your everyday carry including two hidden rear mag/ utility pockets (MSRP $64.99). 5.11 is also releasing a new Natasha Tight for 2020. The nylon spandex tight features a hidden pocket in the waistband and reverse coil zippered pockets at the hips for your EDC. The wide diamond mesh waistband maximizes support and comfort while you run or lift (MSRP $74.99).
In outerwear, several 5.11 jackets get upgrades for 2020 including 3 professional jackets – the 3-in-1 Parka 2.0, 4-in-1 Patrol Jacket 2.0, and the 5-in-1 Jacket 2.0. While all three jackets feature blood borne pathogen resistance and updated, improved fits providing full range of motion, the 3-in-1 Parka 2.0 offers an improved 10k waterproof and 10k breathable DWR-treated fabric featuring a six-pocket outer shell along with the warm and breathable fleece liner (MSRP: $264.99). At 27% lighter than its original version, the 4-in-1 Patrol Jacket 2.0 boasts an eight-pocket outer shell in addition to a fully removable fleece liner that can act as a standalone three-pocket jacket itself (MSRP: $264.99). The 5-in-1 Jacket 2.0 is lighter and more flexible than its predecessor, while also offering added versatility with its removable interior fleece liner also featuring zip-off sleeves (MSRP: $264.99). For the off-duty consumer, the 2019 Surplus jacket gets an upgrade with the Surplus Camo Jacket for 2020. The jacket features the same utilitarian design in a stylized camo pattern ($129.99).
After several lighting updates the past couple years, new for 2020, 5.11 is debuting two new headlamps. The Rapid HL Headlamp features 200 lumens using AA alkaline batteries, or lumens can be increased to 330 when using 14500 rechargeable li ion batteries. The sturdy and durable aluminum body will easily withstand extensive use. The headlamp can also be removed and used as a right-angle flashlight (MSRP $54.99). Pushing 1000 lumens at peak spot mode, the Response HL XR1 is a powerful but unobtrusive wearable headlamp that can throw significant illumination for long periods upon command, but is small and light enough to ride easily in an EDC pack or utility pouch until needed (MSRP $84.99).
In partnership with Vibram®, 5.11 is releasing the K-9 Rope Glove new for 2020. Engineered and designed with direct input from active K-9 teams and rappelling rope operations, this glove pairs a Vibram® anti-friction palm overlay with raised rail sections and a high abrasion synthetic suede palm to provide superior grip to rope or webbing for superior gripping (MSRP $47.99).
New styles will be showcased at SHOT Show 2020, January 21-24, at the 5.11 booth (#13162) in Las Vegas’ Sands Expo Center.
“At 5.11, we continue to collaborate with our core consumers and top professionals to design products that outwork and outlast the competition,” said 5.11 Chief Marketing Officer, Debra Radcliff. “Relationships are key to our business, and we are excited to be at SHOT Show 2020, with our valued partners, dealers, operators, media and customers can get a first-hand look at what we’re working on. I am confident our 2020 product line will not disappoint.”
