BLACKHAWK! Tailors Conceal & Carry Clothing For Operators & Civilians Alike


Blackhawk! Tactical Softshell Jacket

Blackhawk! announced on May 18th that new apparel lines were to be debuted at the “NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits” in Louisville, Kentucky. Now Blackhawk! has declared their apparel is shipping or available in stores.

Blackhawk! has two lines of apparel they are going to produce under. One is a “Pursuit” collection that demands a higher price tag and is very detail-oriented:

The BLACKHAWK! Pursuit collection includes the new Pursuit Tactical Pant, Long Sleeve and Short Sleeve shirts, and the feature-packed Tactical Softshell Jacket. Pursuit styles feature durable ripstop fabric, new pocket system technologies and waterproof functionality. The garments are designed for operators and personnel who demand a reliable blend of function and security.

The other collection of clothing they released is an everyday, causal wear line:


The balance of the 2016 apparel line is designed to make every-day concealed carry more comfortable with well-designed features and innovative fabrics. Non-printing casual shirts and polos are designed for daily wear and to retain BLACKHAWK! functionality.

The expansion of their clothing line includes 14 new clothing styles that should cater to the needs of shooters and law enforcement. They have also increased their headwear offerings with 10 new pieces.

All of their clothing can be seen on their website, and hopefully as they state, in a store near you. To see all of the different apparel options Blackhawk! has to offer, visit their website HERE.

The outdoors, fitness and anything related to firearms are my passions. I am a S&W Armorer, Glock Armorer, reloader and am coping with an addiction to classic S&W and Colt revolvers (by buying more revolvers). I’ve been a guest writer for Sierra Bullets and love long walks to the gun range.

    Kinda dig that short sleeve shirt, not gonna lie.

    • Harry’s Holsters

      Patagonia and Sims have both made them in the past that look just like it. Not sure if they still do.

  • Tritro29

    Hahaha, conceal? This screams Hey Man, do I look like a cop/packing heat to you?

    • Harry’s Holsters

      The rain jacked doesn’t and nor does the short sleeve shirt but the the other shirt is very obvious.

      • Anonymoose

        Needs vents in the back, lighter/pastel colors, and velcro tabs to hold up rolled sleeves. Then I can take it fishing. lol

      • I think the long sleeved shirt is oriented toward more overt functions like security.

        Other than the Velcro patch area on the rain jacket it looks not much different from the REI rain jacket I own.

        • Harry’s Holsters

          Rain jacket looks like 90% of the outdoor brands on the market minus it’s not a bright neon color.

    • Phillip Cooper

      Yeah, totally agree. If they really want to market for concealed carry use, try removing the ruttin’ LOGO on the sleeves/pockets/hats. I’d consider buying a few if they didn’t look like a damned billboard.

    • truthsayer

      I have a couple of concealed carry shirts that have magnetic closure under false buttons. I love them for the speedy accessibility, but it seems to be an idea that just disappeared. Does anyone know why?

    “operators and civilians alike”

    I am getting pretty tired of the most over-used word right after “tactical”, which is “operator”.

    Who are these “operators”? What do they “operate”?

    These f***ing modern terms are getting out of hand: “consultants”, “operators”, “contractors”.

    • Rock or Something

      Operators operate operationally operations, duh.

      • JumpIf NotZero


  • Harry’s Holsters

    I looked at the line on their website and I’m still trying to figure out what it offers that regular off the rack name brand clothing doesn’t for the price. Button down shirts usually conceal extremely well due to the way they lay. The short sleeve button down is fine but the rest of the stuff screams operator and doesn’t add any function or price advantage over popular outdoor brands.

    • Phillip Cooper

      Concur. I wear Dickies work shirts and have no problem at all concealing.

      • Harry’s Holsters

        I wear slim fit sport style shirts form all the preppy brands like southern marsh/tide, vineyard vines and Charles Tyrwhitt. The latter fits the best and slimmest on me and I carry A Glock 19 AIWB. I could carry a 17 fine and my friends are constantly asking me if I am carrying and surprised to hear yes. T shirts seem to cling more and are more material dependent than cut as on wether or not they conceal. Most people with a good holster can conceal anything if wearing an untucked button down shirt.

        • Phillip Cooper

          Yeah, slim fit nothing works for me. Even when I was in shape (a shape that wasn’t more to the “round” spectrum), I’ve always been a husky kid.

    • Emperius

      These clothes, full mountaineer beard and “alpha” leg limp walk screams operator.

  • I’ll continue throwing my lcr in my bermuda shorts while at work. IWB if corporate is in the office.

    Half of these concealed clothing lines might as well have MOLLE straps sewn on the sleeves and chest of their so called casual wear. More camo too. Definitely more camo.

    • A bearded being from beyond ti

      MOLLE on a shirt like that would be pretty funny.

      • Wanna start a new business together? ☺

        • A bearded being from beyond ti

          MOLLE on your hawaiin shirt for tier-one operations in the casino lounge.

          • Tactical beer bandolier, too?

          • A bearded being from beyond ti

            Tactical beer goggles for night ops.

  • A bearded being from beyond ti

    nothing like some CAPSLOCK!

  • nova3930

    Shoot me first clothes? Reminds me of this….

    • Emperius

      Precisely. How about the gotdamn beard trend recently? Those like MilitaryArmsChannel guy wears?

  • Don Ward

    Do they come in size XXXXL for the operators who carry their rations pre-packed?

  • SlowJoeCrow

    I shop Columbia Sportswear or REI, then I look like everyone else in Oregon.
