5.11 Tactical

As a privately held, independent company, 5.11 Tactical gets its name from a term generally reserved for rock climbing, as listed in the Yosemite Decimal System.

According to 5.11 Tactical, “With skill levels ranging from 5.0 (easy) to 5.10 (difficult), 5.11 is even more grueling. After thorough inspection, you conclude this move is obviously impossible; however, occasionally someone actually accomplishes it.”

It’s this mindset of accomplishing the impossible that drives their product line, from their extensive law enforcement gear to fire and EMS tools and apparel.
