5.11 Tactical is a brand of outdoor clothing and tactical equipment. This American manufacturer took its name from the difficulty scale used in rock climbing - 5.11 which was once the most difficult level.
The company's history dates back to the 1960s, when the climber Royal Robbins noticed that the trousers he was wearing were not suitable for climbing and decided to design something more durable and more functional.
This is how the first 5.11 pants were made. The company gained more publicity in 1992, when 5.11 pants were adopted as a basic element of clothing at the FBI academy.
In 2003, the 5.11 Tactical company developed a wide range of products for law enforcement.
The local designers collaborated with public safety specialists to create equipment that would meet the needs of the most demanding users.
In 2012, they took up the challenge of designing a wider range of products and expanding their portfolio not only to services, but also to the civil market.
The company's slogan is "Always be ready" and according to this idea, 5.11 products are characterized by high functionality, durability, freedom of movement and comfort in all conditions.
