5.11 Tactical to Celebrate 20th Anniversary

Brand officially hits 20 years of serving customers on January 29, 2023


COSTA MESA, Calif. (Jan. 29, 2023) – 5.11 Tactical, the global innovator of Purpose-Built Gear™,  will celebrate two decades of serving customers when it reaches its official 20-year anniversary on Sunday, January 29, 2023. 

“This month, we’re celebrating two decades utilizing consumer feedback to produce innovative Purpose-Built Gear™,” said the CEO of 5.11 Tactical Francisco J. Morales. “Since 2003, it has been a privilege empowering customers to Always Be Ready.  Whether they depend on our gear in the line of duty or for everyday use, we’d like to say thank you for counting on us as we pass this milestone and look forward to the future.”

Founded in California in 2003, 5.11 Tactical got its start from a pair of rock-climbing pants that were named after the 5.11 difficulty rating for rock climbing. Eventually, consumers sought to utilize the durability and technical features of those pants for other aspects of life. As a result, the brand expanded its product offering and grew in popularity, especially with 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,” said Morales. “Whether it's through brand partnerships, special events like our annual 5.11 Days celebration, or simply developing dependable gear, 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™ for enhancing the safety, comfort and performance of those who serve, outdoor adventurers, training enthusiasts and customers who wish to live the brand’s mantra of Always Be Ready. 

5.11 Tactical products can be purchased online, through authorized dealers and retailers, as well as at more than 100 company-owned retail stores across the U.S. To learn more about the brand and special anniversary celebrations taking place throughout the year visit www.511tactical.com

Company of Heroes 3: Tactical Pause

The long-awaited strategy title Company of Heroes 3 comes out next month, promising to bring new factions, units, and gameplay features to the franchise. One of the most interesting of these new features is Full Tactical Pause.  

As the old military adage goes; “No plan survives contact with the enemy”—veteran players of the RTS (Real-Time Strategy) genre will know just how true this is. No matter how good your gameplan is, your success will depend on how well you can adapt to and counter your opponent’s strategy.

In earlier Company of Heroes games, every decision ranging from what to build or where to move all the way down to micromanaging individual units in combat had to be made in the heat of the moment, but now, the developers behind Company of Heroes 3 have sought to give newer players to the genre more control, by providing them as much time as they need to think through their next move.

In Single Player Campaigns and vs AI Skirmish, Tactical Pause allows players to pause the game at any point during a battle, queue up orders for multiple units, and then press play and watch the action unfold. It also allows players to call in fire support, expand their bases, and scan around the map all while paused effectively relieving the “real-time” pressure of making decisions on the fly.

Company of Heroes 3 is currently available for pre-order and launches on February 23rd on PC.

Want to win a free copy of the game along with some 5.11 gear? We’re giving away a game codes plus $2,500 worth of 5.11 gear in celebration of the game’s release. Enter now for your chance to win through the link below:
