5.11 Tactical Series Takes on the BDU with the NEW Tactical Dress Uniform™ (TDU™)

5.11 Tactical™ Series, a leading manufacturer of uniform and tactical apparel for law enforcement, military and public safety agencies for more than twenty five years announces a new cutting edge product for law enforcement. The Tactical Dress Uniform™ or TDU™ has been designed to replace the old style Battle Dress Uniforms or BDU of the past. Available in different fabrics and colors, the TDU™ is a vast improvement over the BDU. 5.11 Tactical Series product developers used several teams of police and corrections officers to provide input into the design of the new TDU™. Wear testing by street cops, tactical training units and overseas operators resulted in a number of unique features and officers commented that they would never wear a BDU again once the new TDU™’s were on the street.

The shirt features hidden document pockets on the front chest, triple stitching and 28 bartacks for strength. A bi-swing shoulder allows for greater mobility while on duty and the sleeves feature removable neoprene elbow pads. The entire garment is Dupont Teflon® treated for stain and water resistance.

The pant features removable neoprene knee pads, removable twill blousing straps, and a YKK zipper instead of a button fly to create that 5.11 fit. The new tunnel waist band provides maximum comfort and eliminates the antiquated side buckle and strap on the side. The waistband, belt loops and pocket flaps are all reinforced. The Backup Belt System™ cargo pockets have spare magazine pocket slots along with hook-andloop closures. The loop Velcro which lines the cargo pockets can be used to keep necessary tools from moving under extreme activity. The pants have a double seat and the rear utility pockets have hook-and-loop closures. Finally the pants are Dupont Teflon® treated for stain and water resistance

The TDU™ shirt and pant will retail for MSRP $39.99 each and come in either Poly Cotton Ripstop or Poly Cotton Twill.

5.11 Tactical™ Series, founded in 1968, develops products for the military and law enforcement markets based on a foundation of durability, functionality and quality at an affordable price. For local dealer locations or further information on 5.11 Tactical Series visit www.511tactical.com.
