Two Worlds Collide

Back in November there was a big announcement made that didn’t make much headlines but got me pretty excited. If you follow the Absolute BS or Valkyrie Defense Group on Facebook then you probably have seen plenty of photos of me on the range sporting 5.11 Taclite Pro pants. At the risk of sounding looking and sounding like the Tacticool fan boy they by far they are the most comfortable pants I own. I generally wear them between training on the range, working in the woods cutting timber, hinting, and even while teaching. Not once have the pants let me down.

So knowing I have had such great luck with my 5.11 pants it should be no surprise that I was excited to see the joining of 5.11 with NASCAR. I usually attend at least one NASCAR race each year. (There is nothing like Bristol under the lights!!!) With this new partnership 5.11 will be utilizing their cutting edge designs and durability to design the new uniform the NASCAR Officials.

Jim O’Connell, NASCAR chief sales officer had this to say about the partnership,

“The hard-working men and women that are tasked with officiating nearly 200 NASCAR sanctioned races each year should be outfitted with uniforms that ensure optimum performance and comfort throughout the demanding 10-month race season… 5.11 Tactical has proven to be a leader in developing tactical apparel and we are proud to add yet another brand to our family of Official Partners this year.”

5.11 is now in the process of designing a complete NASCAR line of apparel and will have all their tactical (or tacticool) line on display at each NASCAR event. I am kind of excited what 5.11 rolls out and how it will transfer over into the tactical line.

Again be sure to like the Facebook page and join all the fun.
