5.11

The best April Fools joke this year:

Honestly I can’t stand April Fools day on the internet.  Most of the memes and marketing stunts companies pull are just low hanging fruit trash, and the social network feeds are FULL of the stuff for two days.  5.11 did a nice job on these patch pants though 😂..

If you guys remember, back in 2012 they did a “tactical duty kilt” as a joke.. then TONS of people wanted them so they ended up producing them.  They brought it back a couple more times after that.  I just checked their site and it looks like it now is a permanent fixture.   I have a feeling these morale patch pants are going to follow the same trend; people love gag stuff that is also functional and high enough quality to actually use regularly.

How long until we see Instructor Zero in these?

Honestly those look good, and I like their functionality. I always expect to “talk my shit” on tactical related fashion posts, but a lot of the stuff coming out lately looks pretty good.

1:17 – ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

1:23 – Oh shit!  That calf zipper is very YSL.  I like it, but I wish it was just open, a bit shorter, and not with the fabric flap behind.  LOL at “bootcut” tho.

Hope you took your blood pressure medication today:

Why do tactical videos always have to have the most UN-CHILL music ever?  Shit stresses me out.  Do yourself a favor and mute it and put on Yung Lean – Ginseng Strip 2002 in the background.

0:33 inspired me to do this meme:

If you’re not kicking doors in the NEWEST 5.11 you’re probably not operating at max efficiency I guess?

Every time I see Rudy Reyes in something new, it reminds me how I need to revisit Generation Kill:

511-Tactial-Duty-KiltIf you remember, this 5.11 tactical kilt thing started as an April fools joke a handful of years back, and people were like “I WANT THAT *throwing money at screen*”, so they started making them.  Glad to see 5.11 has a sense of humor anyway.  You can pick up a tactical duty kilt for $90 if you need more genital grazing breezes in your life.

How long you spent at the mall?  How long it take you to get this fly? (All day trigga.)  5.11 with that new new:

Stupid_Sexy_FlandersRemember when Instructor Zero wore tactical yoga pants and did drills with a damn parachute attached to him?  Yes that actually happened.  Saying it out loud though is like talking about when Fabio got his nose bloodied by a flying goose on a roller coaster at Busch Gardens in VA.  It’s almost too hilarious to be real.

If you want to hit the range feelin’ like you’re “wearing nothing at all” looking like a sexy Flanders then 5.11 is the plug.  I’m about to cop, then instagram a “tactical deep lunges while engaging target” thirst trap video for your viewing pleasure. hahah :P
