Monday, February 1st, 2021

Irvine, Calif. (February 1, 2021) – 5.11, Inc., the global innovator of purpose-built gear, has revealed new packs, apparel, footwear and accessories to be launched in Spring and Fall 2021. The 2021 product line includes all-new items along with updates to previous product offerings for outdoor adventurers and tactical enthusiasts alike.

5.11’s brand mantra, Always Be Ready, has never been more relevant than it is today. In 2021, 5.11 supports this core message with products that enhance customers’ ability to stay healthy, prepared and self-reliant. 5.11’s most robust product offering across categories in years, the RUSH 2.0 collection provides users with versatility and functionality on the go, the A/T Series offers professionals a durable and highly technical support for all day performance and comfort, the PT-R series gives end users an opportunity to stay physically fit in any environment, and the covert Norris Low-Top Sneakers gives daily wearers the protection of a combat boot in a street shoe. Preparedness is the first priority, and 5.11’s new products for 2021 were engineered to get customers there.

“Our end-users depend on 5.11 products and gear to ensure they can live the mantra of Always Be Ready,” said 5.11’s CEO, Francisco Morales. “That fact is a guiding principle as we work to design, develop and introduce new items into our offering. From public safety professionals, operators, and outdoor enthusiasts, we spend years fine-tuning products to meet their needs. We couldn’t be more excited for the new gear we are bringing to market in 2021.”

“This year we are expanding the 5.11 product range to offer something for multiple aspects of life,” added Matt Page, Vice President, Global Product for 5.11. “We want to ensure our customers have 5.11 products to help them feel prepared and to perform their best, whether they’re on duty, at work, training or active in the outdoors. In order to meet that goal, we’ve extended or updated many existing product lines with some exciting new products and categories.”

5.11 GTI Capsule
5.11 is thrilled to announce new products in collaboration with special forces veteran and leader in the tactical cutlery industry, Justin Gingrich, who pioneered the modern tactical tomahawk and has developed some of the most sought-after tactical knife and tomahawk designs. Gingrich teamed with 5.11 to design the Peacemaker CFA with a heat-treated steel blade and pick head with full-tang steel construction that’s perfect for heavy field use. Best of all, the Peacemaker CFA swings with the accuracy and feel of a hammer. Its skeletonized frame reduces the weight (1 lb., 12.2 oz), which helps make short work bigger tasks. A textured handle, finished with a tactical pummel tip, provides a sure grip in wet and freezing conditions. It includes a protective sheath and four position belt/MOLLE clip with a 3” capacity. (MSRP: $149.99)

Gingrich also led the design of the CFK 7 Peacemaker (MSRP: $129.99). Thanks to the heat-treated steel blade and full-tang steel construction, the CFK 7 Peacemaker can handle tough jobs that lesser knives can’t touch. Blade perforations reduce weight to help make short work of cutting, batoning, and carving. The textured handle, finished with a tactical pummel tip, provides a sure grip in wet and freezing conditions. It also includes a protective sheath with updated two position 3-inch belt/MOLLE clips.

3M Carbon Black Embellishment for 5.11
5.11 is excited to announce the option for 3M™ Carbon Black embellishment now available through the 5.11 Custom Shop in Manteca, CA. This patented reflective film has a high level of durability while still maintaining flexibility which makes this glass bead technology a perfect candidate for application to uniform and outerwear alike. Officer Safety is the primary intent of this product giving off-angle brightness in low-light situations, however, remaining a muted appearance during daylight conditions. Unlike other treatments, 3M™ Carbon Black will not lose the dark coloration or reflective properties while still maintaining a peak performance for the life of the product. Capability for embellishment is near limitless from custom agency or standardized law enforcement callout. Additional recommendations are to include piping around sleeves and stripes down pant and pocket to allow more points of viability.

“Every new product from 5.11 is designed with a purpose and introduced to meet the needs of our end-users,” said 5.11 Chief Marketing Officer, Debra Radcliff. “At 5.11, we work closely with leading experts, professionals, and enthusiasts to offer gear capable of meeting or exceeding the high standards of our customers. Many of these new items are several years in the making, and we couldn’t be more excited to add them to our assortment.”
