Industry leader in product innovation and gear, 5.11 Tactical has partnered with The Woolmark Company to create professional uniforms for summer. The association will develop A Flex-Tac Poly/Wool uniform collection, comprising of men’s and women’s short sleeve and long sleeve shirts and pants. The collection will be unveiled at 2018 SHOT Show in Las Vegas.

5.11’s uniform line consistently provides a professional look, fade resistant fabric, Teflon finish, and home laundry friendly qualities. The addition of Flex-Tac Poly/Wool technology elevates 5.11’s uniforms’ functionality and durability by absorbing moisture vapor and controlling odour naturally. The garments resist soiling and staining, and deliver natural thermoregulation and UV protection.

The Flex-Tac Poly/Wool line is the first ever Class A uniform with mechanical stretch that also has a Teflon finish and is home laundry friendly. Australian Merino wool provides next to skin softness, while also resisting abrasion, and features natural stretch properties, while retaining shape and color.

"5.11 leads with innovation in the design and development of all of our products – and our uniform line specifically demands the highest levels of functionality and durability,” said David Hein, vice president of 5.11’s professional division.

"Collaborating with The Woolmark Company shows 5.11’s commitment to providing the highest levels of performance in our uniform offering. We are excited to be working with Woolmark on our Flex-Tac Poly/Wool collection and look forward to exploring additional opportunities to partner together in the future," Hein added.

"Our alignment with 5.11 Tactical not only highlights the versatility of Australian Merino wool, but is also a nod to the fiber's heritage," said The Woolmark Company managing director Stuart McCullough. "Traditionally, wool has been used in a variety of uniforms, so it is nice to see the fiber return to this important industry. Highly breathable with superb thermoregulation properties and resistance to odor, Merino wool is the natural choice for purpose-built gear and well-placed to tackle the most demanding missions."

“A partnership between 5.11 and The Woolmark Company creates a true pinnacle for uniform design and innovation," said vice president of global marketing for 5.11, Willem Driessen. "5.11 is an industry leader in product innovation, and Woolmark is a world authority on fabrication technology. Together through the Flex-Tac Poly/Wool Uniform Collection, we are offering the best performing, most technically advanced Class A uniform on the planet." (RR)
