With nearly two decades of experience building reliable and robust gear, 5.11 Tactical is one of EDC's iconic brands. From bags that have stood the test of time to some of the most popular tactical apparel and accessories available on the market, the purpose-driven brand continues to offer exceptional everyday equipment at great values. And during this time of crisis they're offering even more by giving a steep discount on all of their products, along with a special gift for those serving on the front line. It's a good time to stock up on gear you've always wanted, and to help you get started we've picked out some of our favorites below.

RUSH 24 Backpack 37L

The RUSH 24 is arguably 5.11's most popular item, and continues to be an enduring tactical backpack suited for any mission for EDC and beyond. 29 individual compartments cover all your essentials, with a 37-liter clamshell opening main compartment and front admin pocket to organize your EDC. Up top, a fleece-lined stash pocket protects your sunglasses and other fragile items like your phone. Water-resistant 1050D nylon makes the RUSH ready for any environment, and self-repairing YKK zippers ensure your belongings stay secure. Personalizing the RUSH to your exact measurements and EDC contents is also easy thanks to its adjustable compression, shoulder, and sternum straps.

Buy $103.99 ($129.99)

AMPC Pack 16L

If you're looking for something a bit more compact for quick errands or a way to ease the load on your pockets, the AMPC is one of the latest iterations of 5.11's daypack design. While it carries the DNA of the RUSH packs that came before it, the 16L AMPC offers a few modern touches, such as its use of HEXGRID webbing on the front and stowable Hypalon straps to keep the bag compact when needed. It's built tough with a full suite of 420D/500D/1000D CORDURA nylon construction, and is fully expandable with moddable thanks to its compatibility with 5.11 platforms and pouches.

Buy $79.99 ($99.99)


We've talked before about building a first aid kit, and the UCR IFAK pouch is a reliable carrier for all your first aid equipment storing needs. And the best part: it works well as an expansion module to MOLLE-compatible web platforms like the rest of 5.11's bags (or even your vehicle's headrest). The UCR IFAK is built from the same 1050D nylon as its bigger brothers, with enough space for 1-2 blow out kits and other essentials within its 7" H x 5" L x 3" W capacity.

Buy: $27.99 ($34.99)

These are just a few of our favorite picks from 5.11 Tactical's entire catalog, which covers your needs from training to travel to footwear. Be sure to check out the entire sale at 5.11's website at the link below, and use code TOGETHER at checkout to avail of the 20% discount until Sunday May 10th. And if you're a first responder or essential worker, you also get a free survival tool along with your purchase.
