5.11 Tactical Is Everyday Gear You can Count On

5.11 Tactical built its stellar reputation on purpose-built tactical gear and clothing for a variety of applications.

We put their latest collection to the test on a weekend trip to Bridgeport, CA. We did some hiking, exploring, and training using a variety of 5.11 Tactical products–and these were our favorites.

5.11 Tactical Defender Flex Range Tactical Pant

We’re big fans of the 5.11 Quest and ARB pants, but the new Defender Flex Range Pant might be our new favorite.

They proved to be extremely comfortable when flexing and kneeling, as well as durable when scraped or brushed.

The five-pocket slim-fit profile works great on the range, city, or outdoor applications. The reinforced belt loops and pockets easily support EDC items and whatever else you want to carry.

It can also of course be used as a ballistic plate carrier for the ultimate torso protection.

5.11 Tactical Response XR1 Flashlight

BP CH 4857

This flashlight is small enough to be used as an EDC and is IP68 making it dust and waterproof up to 2 meters. We found it extremely useful when on the trail and sorting out some possible suspension issues with our land cruiser.
