I’ve always found it difficult to buy gifts for my friends in the military and that are cops. The type of gear they’re into isn’t exactly something I’m interested in, so finding the right gift can be hard.
I was recently introduced to 5.11 Tactical, which to my surprise had a lot of cool gear I could see myself using. They have a wide variety of products to choose from in the tactical field, from boots to bags to knives and belts.
Below you will find a few items I picked out that I think would make great gifts not just this holiday season, but for whenever.
1. A.T.A.C. 8″ SIDE ZIP BOOT
Anyone in the tactical field will love the A.T.A.C. 8″ Side-Zip Boot. This high performance footwear features an injection-molded Phylon midsole, a cushioned insole, and a non-metallic shank. Inside is treated to keep you cool with a moisture-wicking lining for when times get tough and the job heats up. 5.11 uses their Shock Mitigation System with an oil and slip resistant outsole to provide enhanced speed and traction.
2. TACLITE UNIFORM CAP
The Taclite Uniform Cap looks pretty bland and basic at first glance, but look a little closer and you will see it’s all about the fabric. It’s crafted out of Taclite ripstop fabric for lightweight and durability, featuring a traditional six-panel construction and fully adjustable hook-and-loop rear strap. The front panel is left blank for emblems and graphics.
3. RUSH MOAB 10
This might be one of my favorite items from 5.11 Tactical. The MOAB 10 (Mobile Operations Attachment Bag) provides ample room for your gear and accessories you need with you while on the go. Inside you will find modular storage expandability, allowing you to fully customize how you want your gear to be organized. Its padded strap is fully adjustable, good for both lefties and righties. The covert pocket on the back is TacTec System compatible and large enough for a sidearm. Best of all, when you need to expand your storage even further, the MOAB 10 is equipped with the 5.11 Tier System, allowing you to integrate MOAB with other RUSH series bags.
4. DOUBLE DUTY RESPONDER KNIFE
The Double Duty Responder Knife features a 3.7″ blade with a combo edge blunt-tip sheepsfoot design. Its secondary seatbelt cutter blade offers a carbide glass breaker for emergency vehicle extractions. The rubber FRN handle ensures a strong grip in both wet and dry conditions.
5. GAME STALKER FOLDER
5.11 teamed up with Kyle Lamb, a highly decorated U.S. Army Special Operations veteran, to create the Game Stalker Folder Knife. This collaborative product features a satin finished AUS8 steel blade and textured Fiberglass Reinforced Nylon (FRN) handle for a secure grip in all conditions. A IWB sheath is sold separately.
