First Look: New 5.11 Gear for 2021

Normally around this time of year, we EDCers would have our eyes glued to news from SHOT Show to scope out the latest and greatest gear right as it’s announced. But times have changed and just as 2021 isn’t quite back to normal, neither are the product release schedules for many EDC manufacturers. That’s why our friends at 5.11 teamed up with us to give you all a virtual Day 1 preview of their 2021 product lineup to look forward to this year.

This year, 5.11 is updating their venerable RUSH line of mission-ready backpacks with their new RUSH 2.0 series. A couple of quality of life improvements have been made to these bags to make them a great option if you’re looking for a hard-use bag for everyday carry. It starts with the RUSH12 2.0, with a carry capacity of 24 liters and a design that makes it well-suited for daybag use. It has enough space for your commute essentials, but with its 16 pockets and PALS webbing it can be easily extended further to suit your needs. That’s followed by the medium-sized RUSH24 2.0, with a carry capacity of 37 liters. The RUSH24 2.0 is best suited for overnight adventures away from home, whether that’s for travel or extended work trips. Both the RUSH12 2.0 and the RUSH24 2.0 have been given a new CCW compartment and a padded laptop sleeve for more versatility. Both models have had the size of the quick-access sunglass holder enlarged to be more useful, and the hydration tube ports have been moved to the rear to better mesh with your overall ensemble when you’re on the go. Rounding out the RUSH2.0 series is the RUSH72 2.0, boasting a generous 55 liters capacity that makes it the perfect bag for extended duty and deployment stints as well as for long-term travel and hiking use too. The contoured yoke makes it easier to carry around substantial loads with this bag, and its immense customization options with MOLLE compatibility make it a one-bag wonder.

The new 5.11 Ridge Pant has a slimmer, more low-profile cut compared to most other tactical pants on the market, helping you blend in with the crowd when you’re out and about. It’s made to be comfortable too, with a polyester cotton blend with elastane that’s offers a bit of stretch during more strenuous activity. It’s also built with security in mind, with a hidden cuff key pocket and hidden pockets that allow you to stash important essentials in places where pickpockets might not think you would have valuables.

The Norris sneaker has been updated with three new colors: Desert Multicam, Grey, and Coyote. The same great quality design remains the same, giving you the looks of a casual high-top sneaker that doesn’t look overly tactical despite its serious durability and ASTM certification against puncture resistance for safety. The Vibram Marbani outsole features XS Trek technology making it much more grippy and resistant against slipping on wet surfaces when compared to the standard fashion sneaker, and the Ortholite footbed makes them a comfortable choice for all-day wear too.

Clip & Carry Swiss LinQ Keychain Case

Few tools offer the sheer value and capability per square inch that a 58mm Swiss Army Knife does. For something small enough to sit on your keychain, you get an entire EDC’s worth of functionality, from tweezers to blades to scissors to so much more. But the tool does have its drawbacks. By dangling freely on your keychain it’s prone to making noise or get damaged by its proximity to your keys. And worse, it’s harder to use the tool itself with the rest of the keychain in the way of your task. Clip & Carry’s Swiss LinQ is a simple solution to all these problems. By offering a secure way to stash and deploy a Swiss Army Knife, it brings the tool to its full potential for EDC.

The efficiency of the Swiss LinQ is in its simplicity. Instead of hooking up your multi-tool onto your keychain, the Swiss LinQ instead allows you to dock the tool into its ABS and PC plastic shell. By taking the place of the SAK on your keychain, it protects it from damage and jangle, while at the same time giving you quick access when you need to deal with a task. When duty calls, you can detach the tool itself without the burden of the rest of your keys.

Its durable construction lets the Swiss LinQ withstand the rigors of daily use, and retains its shape even after extended use. It measures 76mm tall by 11.5mm wide, making it compatible with the Victorinox Classic SD, Jetsetter, and Rally 58mm models. It weighs 0.025 oz and is designed to to fit your multi-tool like a glove, saving your keychain from any extra bulk.

Clip & Carry is a brand by StatGear, who have published and fulfilled over a dozen successful Kickstarter campaigns. If the Swiss LinQ’s caught your eye, you can get one (or more) at a special price at their fully funded campaign at the link below.
