5.11 Tactical Outfits Law Enforcement
Headquartered in Modesto, California, 5.11 Tactical, Inc. is a premier designer and manufacturer of purpose-built gear including flashlights, gun cases, range bags, pants, watches, and eyewear. The company caters to the law enforcement and fire/EMS markets. Established in 2003 as an offshoot of the Royal Robbins (established in 1968) brand of outdoor and travel clothing, 5.11 Tactical is today the number one supplier of tactical clothing to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
Like its legacy company Royal Robbins, 5.11 Tactical is built on a foundation of durability and got its name from rock-climbing. “5.11” is the most grueling rock-climbing difficulty level as listed on the Yosemite Decimal System. 5.11 Tactical’s pants are part of the standard issue uniform to the law enforcement officers who come to train at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia.
The fact that 5.11 Tactical is a leading supplier to the FBI is highlighted in the 2007 Peter Berg-directed action film The Kingdom. The film depicts a team of FBI agents sent to investigate the bombing of a foreign-workers facility in Saudi Arabia. The actors playing the FBI agents were all outfitted in 5.11 Tactical gear. In 2007, Inc. Magazine ranked 5.11 Tactical as Number 211 on its list of the 500 fastest growing private companies in the nation. Today, 5.11 Tactical employs a 170-strong workforce and takes in approximately US$95 million in sales.
