Avatar photo

With the end of the year coming and the holidays at hand, it’s important to gear up for one of the most important missions of the year: getting everyone on your list a thoughtful EDC gift that matches them perfectly. 5.11 is a one-stop-shop for your holiday list this year thanks to a wide variety of quality everyday carry gear. From hard-use tactical bags and practical slings, to innovative accessories and smartly-designed clothing to help anyone accomplish their mission, they’ve got the bases covered. To help you out during crunch time, we’ve put together our favorite picks from 5.11 this year, so read on below to find the perfect gift for everyday carry.

Rapid Sling Pack 10L

5.11’s new Rapid Sling Pack features maximum versatility and quick access to the essential gear placed within, making it a great gift choice for light travelers and quick missions. Its CenterLine design offers stable carry whether on their back or at their side in sling mode, and the carry options are further enhanced with 270-degree quad zip access and either-sided access to the external zippered areas. There’s a compartment in the front for small items, and a discreet rear area that’s CCW compatible for hook and loop holsters and mag holders.

Loading and unloading the 10-liter capacity bag is easy since the bag lies flat fully unzipped, and there’s lots of internal organization like mesh zippered pockets and a hydration bladder carrier that works fine with small tablets to sort out their essentials. Side compression straps help with sizing the bag down when it isn’t full, and the front MOLLE-compatible webbing makes it easy to add modular pouches when more space is needed.

Halo Neck Gaiter

Neck gaiters have always been a great choice for a stocking stuffer gift for any hiking and camping aficionados on your list, but this year makes them even more useful for anyone in your family or circle who could use a well-designed face covering. Unlike bandanas or other makeshift coverings, the Halo Neck Gaiter features a tubular, seamless construction from high-stretch recovery breathable material with laser-cut edges for more comfort, and features a unique woodland camo pattern designed by 5.11.

The multi-function gaiter can do more than protect their mouth: the stretchable design lets you slip it down to protect their neck, or up on their head to keep hair out of their face and give their scalp a bit more shelter.

Mission Ready Chukka

Whether they’re off to the beach, headed to a desert hotzone, or out on a daily errand, the person you gift the Mission Ready Chukka to will enjoy having these boots on their feet. They feature a classy full-grain leather upper that looks even better when you use the included high-contrast red laces.

The Ortholite X-25 footbed paired with the D30 Lite EVA midsole offers great comfort for all-day wear, and the Vibram XS Trek outsole is ready to provide excellent grip even when things get slippery on the road. It’s a tactical-ready boot that fits right at home in an office, and its comfort goes well with casual clothes like shorts and jeans for the weekend, too.

Vehicle Ready Hexgrid Seat

The Hexgrid Seat is a great gift option for anybody on your gift list who spends a lot of time on the road thanks to the modular storage it can provide to any car seat. It uses 5.11’s special MOLLE-compatible Hexgrid system that allows more mounting options than straight vertical and horizontal orientation for any gear rigged up to the system. The Hexgrid starts them off with an included hook and loop mesh bag, but it’s designed to be compatible with the rest of 5.11’s Gear Set attachments.

It’s also easily adjustable for any size car seat (and it works on both their front and back as well thanks to removable straps and seat wedges) and offers the secure mounting of pouches, first aid kits, and tactical gear to give their vehicle a well-stocked emergency loadout ready for any excursion.

Surplus Jacket

True to its name, the Surplus Jacket evokes the look of a vintage military surplus jacket, but modern features and a contemporary design take it a step above what you’ll find at your local surplus shop.. The shell is made out of a mix of Teflon-coated polyester for water resistance and Flex-Tac canvas that provides comfortable mechanical stretch properties suitable for active wear. The combination of materials keeps the Surplus Jacket comfortable while protecting itself from dirt, stains, and the elements.

There’s an adjustable hood in the collar for when things get wet, and hidden side entry RAPIDraw pockets give the wearer access to EDC essentials or their CCW. The four large front panel pockets give the jacket its signature field jacket aesthetic, while articulated sleeves and and adjustable cuffs give it the comfort to perform well as an everyday outer shell.

Peak Long Sleeve Shirt

The Peak Long Sleeve Shirt features the classic plaid styling that goes well with any casual outfit, and its 100% cotton yarn twill construction is made to be soft against the skin. Unlike a standard off-the-rack shirt, the Peak Long Sleeve is designed for easy access to side pockets (and IWB/OWB concealed carry holsters too) thanks to the RAPIDraw placket venting.

Button-down chest pockets let the wearer secure smaller essentials, while its squared-off hem lets you dress the shirt up or down as needed. Its ability to move with the wearer from tactical to practical and all points in between make it a thoughtful addition to any wardrobe.
