In this episode of TFBTV’s coverage of SHOT Show 2018, James meets with 5.11 to talk about their new gear, and more importantly, their new GEO-7 proprietary camouflage pattern. From 5.11’s press release:
5.11 Tactical, the global innovator of tactical apparel and gear, will showcase its largest line of new products in the brand’s 15-year history at the annual SHOT Show in Las Vegas, January 23-26, 2018. In addition to debuting collections of new packs and bags, professional uniforms, tactical apparel, boots and accessories to help both on and off-duty consumers “Always Be Ready®”, 5.11 will also be announcing several new innovation partners and 2018 brand initiatives.
Inspired by 5.11’s battle-tested backpacks, the new Rapid Origin Pack is an ideal mission-ready pack. Lightweight and medium-sized, the Rapid Origin features multiple quick-release and adjustable straps to customize the fit. A web platform on the front allows pouches or gear to be added, and there is a secure CCW compartment and an internal admin panel. Built with a large, drop-front inverted U opening, the interior is easy to access and includes a padded laptop compartment. ($84.99)
5.11 will introduce a new color way (dark coyote/dark brown) in two of its most popular and technologically advanced footwear styles. The Apex Waterproof 8” Boot features a resoleable Vibram® Megagrip outsole, a D30® Lite midsole, a D30 support footbed, an eVent™ breathable blood borne pathogen waterproof membrane lining, and a Kevlar® reinforced heel. ($249.99) The XPRT® 3.0 Waterproof 6” Boot features the Vibram® Megagrip outsole to help grip on dry and wet terrains, along with an OrthoLite® Imperial footbed for higher energy return and less fatigue. It also features a Kevlar® heel, side ankle abrasion protection and an eVent® waterproof breathable and BBP resistant membrane lining. ($209.99)
In Fall 2018, 5.11 will be the first apparel brand to introduce its exclusive GEO7™ Camo providing users with advanced concealment technology founded by using mathematical principles. Developed in an exclusive partnership with Veil Camo™, the line includes Tactical Duty Uniform Shirts, Pants, Jackets, Hats, a Plate Carrier and additional gear. Each piece features a combination of macro and micro visual disruption and color palettes that work in tandem across light conditions and environments to give users a tactical time advantage in remaining concealed. Offered in two colors, GEO7™ Terrain and GEO7™ Night, GEO7™ is a revolutionary technology designed using both fractal and chaos mathematical principles. These principles fuel the visual biases found in the natural world. This approach lends to the color and visual disruption which makes GEO7™ so effective.
New styles will be featured at 5.11’s booth (#13162) at SHOT Show 2018 at the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
