Tru-Spec® Expands 24-7® Apparel Line with Several New Rip-Stop Items

Untitled Document

(Marietta, Georgia) TRU-SPEC by Atlanco has added several ultra-comfortable, lightweight items  to its extremely popular 24-7 Series of duty/casual apparel. Like the original 24-7 cotton pants which were first introduced at the 2008 SHOT Show and quickly carved out a large share of the market, the new 24-7 items have been inspired by the multi-function trousers and other apparel commonly worn by many police tactical teams, but all 24-7 items have been designed for both style and function and they easily cross the line between on-duty and off-duty wear.

To ensure maximum wearability in virtually any environment, these new additions are all manufactured from  rugged, lightweight  6.5oz. 65/35 polyester/ cotton rip-stop (the originals are 8.5 oz. 100% cotton canvas). The fabric is Teflon TM coated to protect against stains.

Tru-Spec’s new 24-7 Rip-Stop items include:
