Best Selling 5.11 Gear
My new favorite jacket
This jacket is so comfortable and warm, I love it! It’s my new fav jacket.
Correctional officer so heard raves about 5.11's. Good boot so far with being on your feet. Only issue is a white film that showed up on the leather around the toe area. I polished them and with in few hours the film is back.
Great Lightweight Boots
Two things first: 1. The boots do run a bit small, so order at least a half size bigger than you normally wear. (I wear size 11 and ordered an 11.5 and they fit perfectly). 2. The soles on the boots are not shiny like the picture displays. With that said, the boots are very lightweight and very comfortable. The zipper access is also a plus as I am getting older and it's becoming more of a challenge to push my foot into boots without that access. Also, I've never been a fan of speed lacing. Too much work and trouble. These boots don't have that. What they do have is the traditional eyelets all the way up and with those eyelets, I can just tie the boot strings, forget about it, and then put them on and off via the side zip method. Work smarter, not harder as it were. I cannot give any rating on durability because I just received them. However, my initial rating is 5 stars because: - Lightweight - Look and feel - Side zip access - Traditional eyelets as opposed to the speed lacing Providing the durability holds up for what I have planned for these boots (normal wear and hiking around my wooded property), I will be buying more of the 5.11's from this site.

The 5.11 Tactical Headquarters
One of the original providers of military and tactical clothing and gear, 5.11 has innovation and resilience at its core. The company takes its name from rock climbing. The Yosemite Decimal System initially ranked the difficulty level of a climb on a scale with 5.0 as the easiest and 5.10 as the hardest. A climb that ranked as a 5.11 was considered impossible–but occasionally, someone did it. 5.11 wants all its tactical clothing and equipment to inspire this conquer-the-impossible mentality. The company first focused its attention on creating clothing tough enough for rock climbing, but dressy enough for work. This durable, all-day wear caught the attention of FBI agents, who started ordering it for tactical operations. 5.11 shifted its focus to providing servicemen and public safety professionals with everything they need to perform at their best in any situation.
