5.11 Tactics to Celebrate the 20th Anniversary

The brand officially celebrates 20 years serving customers on January 29, 2023

5.11 Tactical, the global innovator of Purpose-Built Gear™, will celebrate two decades of service to customers when it marks its official 20-year anniversary on Sunday, January 29, 2023.

“This month, we are celebrating two decades of using consumer feedback to produce innovative Purpose-Built Gear™,” said 5.11 Tactical CEO Francisco J. Morales. “Since 2003, it has been a privilege to empower clients to be always ready. Whether you depend on our gear in the line of duty or for everyday use, we’d like to thank you for counting on us as we pass this milestone and look to the future.”

Founded in California in 2003, 5.11 Tactical began with a pair of rock climbing pants named after the 5.11 difficulty rating for rock climbing. Eventually, consumers sought to use the durability and technical features of those pants for other aspects of life. As a result, the brand expanded its product offerings and grew in popularity, especially among public safety professionals such as first responders, fire and emergency services, law enforcement, and military personnel.

“Serving those who serve will always be at the forefront of what we do,” Morales said. “Whether through brand partnerships, special events like our annual 5.11 Day Celebration, or simply building trusted equipment, we will always strive to support public safety professionals and military personnel and show our gratitude for their service.” .

Today, the company works directly with end-users to design Purpose-Built Gear™ to improve safety, comfort, and performance for service providers, outdoor adventurers, fitness enthusiasts, and customers who want to live the mantra of the mark of be always ready.
5.11 Tactical Products may be purchased online, through authorized distributors and retailers, as well as at more than 100 company-owned retail stores across the U.S. For more information on the brand and special anniversary celebrations that are held throughout the year, visit www.511tactical.com .
