Warrior East – 5.11 XPRT Uniform

Friday, July 15th, 2016

There was a sneak peek of 5.11 Tactical’s new XPRT uniform at SHOT Show but the actual public debut at IWA in Germany earlier this year. It only seems fitting as the features were hammered out in conjunction with a European national police CT unit. I got to check it out the but the only sample was in Dark Navy, making it difficult to discern details, and the booth was swamped with customers.

The uniform’s first American appearance was during SOFIC, but 5.11 asked me not to show it yet.

Finally, at Warrior East, I’m able to show you this new three-piece uniform. It includes Tactical and Rapid shirts as well as Tactical Pant.

5.11 has put a lot of innovation into the XPRT uniform. For example, they are the first adopters of the new NYCO Tactical fabric from Invista which also offers Cordura fabric. It still features a rip-stop weave but  it’s lighter than the standard 50/50 NYCO we are now used to, and has a more comfortable hand.  

And then, there’s the whole design. It’s unlike anything else 5.11 has ever offered.

Black and Dark Navy have landed in the US and should be on 5.11 Tactical’s website shortly. MultiCam will be available around SHOT Show 2017.

Warrior East – High Ground Gear Ballistic Shield

Friday, July 15th, 2016

High Geound Gear hadn’t planned on releasing this ballistic shield yet, but based on recent events, they moved it up. The handle is a boltless design that doesn’t compromise the integrity of the armor, but rather clamps at the bottom and sides.  It offers Level 3+ protection and the screenshot below details the threats from the ballistic lab test.

Available in 30 days from www.highgroundgear.com.

Warrior East – Ops-Core FAST Side Armor

Thursday, July 14th, 2016

The Ops-Core FAST Side Armor is a low profile add-on which allows the user to still get a cheekweld on his weapon. Additionally, it is easy to configure the helmet thanks to its simple attachment system.

This is the reverse side of the Side Armor. You can see the hexagonal attachment cleat which slides into the track on the ARC rail. Once it is rotated, the shape won’t fall out of the track. To secure the Side Armor the lever is rotated to lock it in place.

This chart characterizes the FAST Side Armor’s ballistic protection.

Offered in slim or wide profile in high-cut or super high-cut in Urban Tan, Foliage Green or Black.


Warrior East – Under Armour

Thursday, July 14th, 2016

Under Armour is introducing an AR 670-1 compliant boot called the NFP. Although it’s not Berry compliant, it does combines rough out cow leather with 1000D Cordura upper. There’s also a padded area in the ankle for comfort and medial drainage ports. They finish the No Feel Pain with a dual denisty PU midsole.

Coyote, Black and Sage.


Warrior East – Beyond Level A9E

Thursday, July 14th, 2016

The level A9E (E=Equatorial) is Beyond’s Hot Wet uniform. Made from the USSOCOM-validated jungle fabric from Burlington, Beyond has kept the design simple, with a few specialized features.

For example, the Jungle Blouse has a mesh lined, rear vented yoke.

One feature that I haven’t seen in a jungle uniform before is the mesh underwear liner. It’s much like you’ll find in swimwear. There are also mesh gaiters sewn into the legs of the pants.
