Tactical Gear

I don't know if it's got anything to do with the seemingly endless war in the dessert, but it just seems to me that more and more people are into military stuff lately. There are these huge events of real time role playing where people get into military gear and actually play out strategies with painball or similar weapons.

In any case, if you are into role playing or are actually in the profession, 5.11 Tactical Outdoors is a website geared specifically for 511 Tactical customers. The 5.11 Tactical Pants are designed for durability and functionality. If, like me, you are wondering what 5.11 is, it is a rating that is based on the Yosemite Decimal Rating Scale for rock climbing which sets the level of difficulty on a scale of 5.0 being easy to 5.10 being difficult. That means that 5.11 exceeds the expectations for products that are geared for this level of difficulty.
