5.11 Tactical hasn’t left out the ladies and this is apparent in their T-Shirt line. With a good variety of both male and female T-Shirts any female LEO, military personnel or firearms enthusiast will be covered for a casual look. If you are a gun loving girl with a casual and comfortable fashion style you will like some of the T’s that 5.11 Tactical has designed just for the ladies.
These graphic tees are new for 2013 and there are a number of choices as everybody knows the ladies need a good amount of choices. They are made from 100% pre-shunk cotton so they fit very comfortably. They also have a tapered neck and shoulders which makes them ultra comfortable for all day wear and are built sturdy and to last you can expect from 5.11 Tactical products.
One of the shirts features the newest 5.11 Motto – “Always Be Ready“. This T-Shirt is available in both black and powder blue here at Range Master and in sizes x-small to x-large. Then there is the “Smokin, Hot Shirt” that is available in black and pink and also in sizes x-small to x-large. I really like the design on the latter since the smoke from the smoking gun turns into the 5.11 cross hairs logo in a really neat way. Here’s a close-up of that so you can have a good look.
If you are not the girly girl type then you can definitely leave these T’s and check out some of the regular shirts from 5.11 Tactical. These offer a wider variety for you to choose from and they are just as cool but just may fit a little bit different than those specifically for the ladies.

If you are new here or if you just haven’t noticed, we carry a wide array of 5.11 Tactical products. They are one of the biggest names in the manufacture of tactical clothing, offering clothes for Firefighters, Emergency Medical Technician’s, Law Enforcement Officers, Private Military Contractors and firearm and outdoor enthusiasts. One thing that has been proven over the years is that their clothing and products are made with great care and provide versatility.
The 5.11 Tactical company started with mountain climbers. They started with pants bearing the 5.11 name, named after the hardest level of rock climbing at Yosemite. They are thus most famous fro their cargo pants that were built initially for climbing but soon the world came to see how durability, high quality and most of all versatile these were and started using them for other applications – tactical applications.
The pant had a lot of cross over appeal. For instance the tactical strap that is now used for radios and handcuffs was designed to hold runners and carabineers. Another feature is their double stitched and reinforced needs that are initially designed to withstand the rigors that the knees undergo during rock climbing. Also they had slanted pockets designed so that the pockets could be easily accessed when someone was wearing a climbing harness.
The 5.11 Tactical pants were first used as tactical pants when a couple FBI agents who also did some recreational rock climbing discovered that the pants would work just as well in their job duties and for everyday wear. They wore them in Quantico, Virgina at the FBI Academy and other agents noticed and the rest is history as they say.
In 1999 Dan Costa a Modesto entrepreneur purchased 51% of the Royal Robbins company and then purchased the remainder of the company in 2001 naming the whole thing 5.11 Tactical. Over the years the design of the pants have been tweaked. The edges of the pockets now feature double reinforced stitching and so you can carry a pocket knife without having to worry about the pockets fraying. They also moved the accessory pouch from the right leg onto the left to provide storage for a spare cell phone or magazine. They have also added other colors outside of khaki over the years as well.
5.11 Tactical not only makes pants these days but also makes shirts, shorts, jackets and vests. They have expanded beyond clothing items as well to now include a number of different tactical bags, rucksacks, knives, footwear, eye wear and flashlights. They continue to remain successful by using the feedback they receive from their end users to improve their current products to create new products.
