5.11 is having a “flash bang” sale, but this isn’t what my fellow tactical officers are thinking. No, there isn’t a sale on those wonderful flash, sound diversionary devices often called flash bangs. Instead 5.11 is offering great deals on some of their outstanding products in preparation for the holiday shopping season. The first item up is the Overwatch Bag.
You can’t be in American law enforcement and not have at least heard of 5.11. Though Royal Robbins, an avid mountain climber, started producing the durable clothing in the 1960’s, it wasn’t until Dan Costa bought a 51% share of the company that the 5.11 tactical brand skyrocketed in the law enforcement community. Taking a quick hold on training gear for FBI agents, the brand literally spread like a wildfire among other Federal, State, and Local law enforcement agencies. I can still remember getting my first pair of 5.11 tactical pants, and how awesome it was to train in purpose-built pants, that fit as comfortably as a good pair of jeans.
