New From 5.11 Tactical at Shot Show

Postby Matt » Tue Jan 17, 2012 7:40 pm

The folks at 5.11 Tactical were kind enough to take us to a meeting room and show us the latest and greatest new prototype products slated for release around August or September. A lot of folks were curious about some photos we took of a 5.11 tactical plate carrier from Media Day at the Range yesterday, our video goes into detail about what this plate carrier is and how much it might cost.

The most surprising thing to us was the price points on these high quality items. Mind you, these are estimated, but still:

5.11 Tactical Brokos Belt (Under $100)
5.11 Tactical Chest Rig ($80)
5.11 Tactical Tac-Tec Plate Carrier ($170)

I'm very impressed by the plate carrier, it may very well be my next plate carrier purchase. Great range of motion and a great overall design.

This... this is so cool. Forget all the manly hoo-rah-ing, this just makes the little girl inside me giggle.

Want. Plate. Carrier.

I was already looking at the Brokos belt for my real steel shooting setup, but now I can get a plate carrier to match. Glad to see more companies are trying to get that JPC-style side plate area, with as little material as possible while retaining its structural integrity. Will definitely be saving my pennies for its release; 5.11 makes great gear.

Looks flimsy and over relying on velcro.
