a second chance

It would seem that another batch of interns was unleashed at the 5.11 Tactical Factory recently. Really I have no basis for this assumption and it’s highly unlikely but I find it to be a lighthearted way to introduce their “Factory Second” merchandise.

Typically a factory second would be treated like a down and dirty closeout deal. No take backs. Our policy and disclaimer on the current batch of 5.11 Tactical Factory Seconds is a bit different. Take a look:

5.11 Factory Second – LA Police Gear has secured amazing deals on select 5.11 products that were deemed below 5.11’s amazingly high quality control standards. We bet that when you get these, you won’t even be able to tell that these are factory seconds! These jackets were deemed a factory second due to the color not being exactly up to 5.11’s expected standard.

Some colors are slightly darker and some slightly lighter than what it is supposed to be. This item is eligible for return if for any reason you are unhappy with it after receiving them. We know you won’t be unhappy, you will be thrilled that you got such a high quality product at an amazingly low price! This item does not qualify for promotional items.

5.11 Tactical Factory SecondsThese are stock photos of “normal” merchandise so don’t go sticking your nose to the screen trying to pick out any flaws or color variances. What you can do instead is look up the usual going price of the 5.11 Tactical Sabre 2.0 Jacket.

Once you’ve done that, come back here and revel in the $129.99 price tag for these 5.11 Tactical Sabre 2.0 Jacket Factory Seconds. The reviews on both our site and the 5.11 Tactical website are overwhelmingly positive. If people weren’t a fan of this jacket then it’s pretty obvious that a 2.0 version would have been unnecessary.

5.11 calls the Sabre their most popular, concealed carry jacket and this upgraded 2.0 version was engineered with direct feedback from 5.11 users in order to provide a covert and stylish appearance that hides a wealth of tactical features.

A high performance microfiber shell and a waterproof/breathable seam-sealed membrane keep you insulated from wind and weather without heating you up during periods of high activity.

5.11’s patented Quixip™ system provides immediate access to a holstered sidearm, and zipping handwarmer pockets are Backup Belt System™ compatible, allowing you to customize your accessories for the mission at hand.

Utility pockets at each shoulder and roomy internal pockets offer ample storage space, a secure lumbar pocket offers additional covert storage, and an integrated hood can be rolled up into the collar or removed entirely in warmer weather.

Integrated storm cuffs keep out rain and cold, and three zip-out ID panels allow you to go from covert to overt in seconds. You’ll find those panels both front and rear so you can display both badges and larger “Police” or “Sheriff” ID panels.

With winter finally waning despite trying to hang on again, it’s about time to prepare for those April showers that bring May flowers. Take advantage of these factory seconds while they last.
