Though 5.11 Tactical has been producing top-notch tactical wear and gear since 2003, accomplished mountain climber Royal Robbins developed clothing designed to handle the toughest outdoor tasks back in 1968, when no one else could manufacture apparel built for tactical purposes. With the motto "Always Be Ready," 5.11 Tactical Gear is essential for Law Enforcement Officers, Military Personnel and Firefighters.
Each jacket, vest, belt, uniform, holster, duty knife and piece of eye wear is designed with great innovation and a keen eye for functionality. This expansive collection of purpose-built gear will improve speed, safety, accuracy, and overall performance for the defender that can't afford to be slowed down. The name 5.11 comes from Robbins' days on the mountain trails when a climb rated as 5.10 was generally considered to be near-impossible, which is why 5.11 Tactical Gear has always been for the men and women looking to perform at higher levels than ordinary citizens typically dare.
5.11 has a mission, and that is to build on a foundation of durability, quality and value. They are Innovators who make purpose-built gear for the most demanding missions. 5.11 leads the industry in innovative gear and here at Sheplers.com we stand behind their mission, as well, and proudly carry 5.11 tactical which helps to serve and protect both on duty and off.
