First Tactical – Defender Series

Wednesday, July 26th, 2017

During SHOT Show I had an opportunity to check out First Tactical’s new Defender Series. I was impressed by the fabric choice as well as the design features.

First off, the Defender series is the first to use a new NYCO fabric featuring mechanical stretch. The fabric was engineered for wear in warm and humid weather and is moisture wicking. First Tactical added features like vented crotch, knee, side gussets, and mesh pockets to help make life more bearable during hot weather wear. In addition to the fabric’s mechanical stretch, First Tactical designers also created a garment with running gussets throughout, a comfort waist, and articulated knees and elbows.

The Defender series is designed to be fully-functional for SWAT teams, but not look overly militaristic. The ensemble boasts over 30 pockets, with 25 in the pants and 8 in the shirt.

The Defender Shirt is a Combat-style. It’s made with a 6.5 oz, 100% polyester jersey body, offering snag and wrinkle resistance with moisture wicking fibers and an anti-microbial finish. The Sleeves and Collar are made from the 6.9 oz DuPont NYCO fabric (45% Nylon/ 55% Cotton) mechanical 2-way stretch micro double ripstop with moisture wicking finish. This material in the collar offers a stretch panel. Interestingly, they used a different fabric for the Side Panels. It’s a 4-way stretch (85% nylon/15% spandex)that won’t snag with moisture wicking properties and an anti-microbial finish. ??
The Defender Shirt has a 1/4 zip front with professional fold-down collar and a yoke with off shoulder seams for a comfortable load/carry. The zippered sleeve pockets incorporate Velcro panels and a pen holder. The Elbow Patches FT Elbow Pads and the Sleeves are finished off with rollable cuff. ?

The Defender Pants are made from the 6.9 oz (55% Cotton, 45% Cordura® Nylon) mechanical 2-way stretch double ripstop, with moisture wicking finish.

Design features include welded reinforced knees with zippered side access for FT Defender Knee Pad integration, Comfort Flex Action Waist, riveted reinforced belt loops, nylon reinforced mesh pocket bags, knife clip protection pocket to prevent snagging, zip secure cargo pocket with internal organization which will accept up to 3 pistol mags, running gusset with articulation at the knees for maximum movement, and lower secure leg pocket.


Introducing First Tactical’s 2017 4th Of July Patch

Thursday, June 22nd, 2017

4th of July

When First Tactical initially launched their limited run patch promotions the main request for future patches was something patriotic.

As Independence Day nears First Tactical wanted to make the request a reality and are proud to debut their U.S.-made 4th Of July Patch. The patch is laser cut and features a 100% polyester thread on poly twill fabric that provides rugged durability and a lustrous sheen.

As with most of First Tactical’s patch promotions supplies are limited and will not be reordered. First Tactical plans to update their designs yearly.

The 4th of July Patch is available now for $9.99. Click here to see First Tactical’s entire patch collection.


Jumping In: The First Tactical Jump Bags

Thursday, June 15th, 2017

I saw these at SHOT Show and am very impressed. They worked with EMS professionals to introduce features not often found in soft bags.

First Tactical is excited to announce the launch of their new EMS Jump Bags.

The Large Jump Bag is 22” x 12” x 12” and is perfect for an ALS set up. The Medium Jump Bag is 22” x 10” x 10” and is an ideal BLS medical bag.

First Tactical’s design team worked hand-in-hand with end users to create a bag that would work in any situation.

A TPU molded bottom allows users to enter a situation and place their bag down without worry. The easy-clean bottom is light grey in color allowing users to take a decon wipe and quickly decontaminate their bag. The bottom is also waterproof and features oversized lugs providing flexibility based on situation: from being dragged across concrete to being set down on a wet carpet in a house with too many cats, this bag has you covered.

Traditional bags require operators “yard sale” their equipment when looking for what they need. The Jump Bags feature a “three-quarter zip” opening that minimizes the amount of the “lid” on the ground while allowing medics to open their bag and see everything they need quickly.

Boasting countless other features including a hook and loop interior, simple silhouette, and gurney hooks these bags will work as hard as you do. See all details here.

Both Jump Bags are available now and come in red and hi-vis yellow. The Large Jump Bag is priced at $199.99, the Medium Jump Bag is available for $179.99. First Tactical’s complete EMS Kit collection is also available.
