5.11’s New Fall EDC Line – Last Minute Stocking Stuffers!

COSTA MESA, Calif. (Dec. 14, 2023)5.11 Tactical, the global innovator of Purpose-Built Gear™ is thrilled to announce new everyday carry (EDC) products for Fall 2023. Built with functionality and durability in mind, these new products are designed to meet the needs of first responders, outdoor enthusiasts, and everyday individuals who prioritize preparedness in their daily lives.

“EDC items are essential pieces of gear for anyone who intends to be prepared for any situation or challenge that might arise,” said 5.11’s Matt Page, Vice President, Global Product. “These are items that need to be dependable and durable enough for professional use while also being able to perform without failure in everyday emergencies. Our product team created each of these items to meet those standards without compromise.”

Customers in search of a reliable pocketknife can look to the Braddock DP Full ($50). Ideal for EDC and nimble enough for daily tasks, it features a 3.5-inch, drop-point blade constructed with edge-retaining D2 steel that includes a swedge for reduced point thickness. Its 2.7-mm thickness provides blade durability and the G10 handle ensures solid grip for years of daily use. The liner-locking folder measures 8.125 inches when open but folds to a pocket-friendly 4.875 inches. It also offers a reversible deep-carry pocket clip.

A more compact option is found with the Braddock DP Mini ($40). It utilizes the same materials but offers a 3-inch blade and measures 7 inches when open, but folds to a pocket-friendly 4 inches and comes with a deep-carry pocket clip that can be installed on either side.

The Halon FR Glove ($50) is made with inherently fire-resistant goatskin leather in the palms for abrasive tasks and fire-resistant Polartec® Power Grid™ FR on the back for increased flexibility, warmth, and breathability while also reducing the glove’s weight. The hook-and-loop fasteners at the wrist provide a snug seal. With a comfortable fit, extreme dexterity, and touchscreen capability, users will never feel the urge to take these gloves off.

For extreme durability and functionality, the Patrol CR Insulated Glove ($60) is constructed with goatskin leather in the palm and back of the hand and features a level 3 cut-resistant liner at the palm. Touchscreen compatibility and 40 grams density of warmth-retaining PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation on the back of the hand make it a comfortable, warm and tough option that’s ideal for duty and tough tasks outdoors when the temperature drops.

The Adiron Insulated Glove ($60) is built to keep users warm and dry with 170g Primaloft® Gold Insulation in the back of the glove and 100g insulation in the palm, plus the 5.11® Tac Dry® membrane that is waterproof, breathable and bloodborne-pathogen resistant. A brushed-fleece lining adds additional comfort and warmth. It also features touchscreen-compatible palms and fingers and an elastic wrist with a cinch strap.

For those in search of versatile hand protection in frigid conditions, the URSA 3-in-1 Glove ($110) and URSA 3-in-1 Mitt ($105) are two outstanding options. Both options include a removable, touchscreen compatible Polartec® FR Dry five-finger liner glove that delivers dexterity, fire-resistance, and ring-cut feature. When the temperature really drops, the gauntlet-style outer shells made from 5K/10K waterproof and breathable nylon and PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation ramp up warmth. All-day comfort is created by the keystone thumb, pre-curved ergonomic fit, and soft, brushed polyester lining. The Tac Dry® waterproof/breathable/bloodborne pathogen-resistant membrane keeps hands dry and safe while the goatskin leather construction on the palm and fingers makes them touch-screen compatible and durable. For ease of wear and comfort, they both feature one-handed closure/release systems plus retention loops.

5.11 Tactical remains committed to providing individuals with the tools and gear they need to face any challenge confidently. With the launch of the new EDC items for Fall 2023, the brand continues to set the standard for innovation, quality, and performance in the everyday carry category.

    D2 steel and a linerlock?
    Real cutting edge stuff there 5.11. Lets party like it's 1965
    I guess the poors need a better selection than the gas station knives they love.

    For those who don’t know, D2 steel will rust very quickly, especially if used as a pocket knife. You do get better edge retention compared to the cheaper alternatives though.

      @Heat is overrated I have about a dozen knives in D2, and carry them regularly. Not one has any rust on them, and I don't treat them any differently than my knives in 154CM, S30V, S35VN or S45VN. D2 has been a great knife steel for me.
