LAS VEGAS, Jan. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SHOT SHOW® (Booth #13162) -- 5.11 Tactical®, the global innovator in tactical apparel and gear, today expands its line of tactical and stylish gear and apparel designed for women, by women.
"5.11 takes women's styles and fits, and we build in tactical features," said Tiffany Yerby, 5.11's director of design. "It begins with the Flex-Tac fabrics we use at 5.11. They have stretch, and I don't know a woman on this planet that doesn't want stretch in her pants."
During the design process, 5.11 reverse engineers the most popular women's silhouettes from the fashion runway and builds in tactical DNA. This ensures functionality, durability and comfort in fashion forward clothing and gear for tactically-minded women.
5.11 continues to expand its women's line as the demand grows. A 2015 report from the National Sporting Goods Association found that 5.4 million women said they went target shooting. That's up 60 percent since 2001.
