“5.11’s roots are in Yosemite National Park, where Royal and Liz Robbins began designing purpose-built apparel for the climbing community scaling iconic landmarks like El Capitan and Half Dome. They also had a deep respect for our environment as advocates of climbing techniques that left little or no damage to the rocks they climbed. Today at 5.11, we do our best to carry on their vision through our product designs, manufacturing processes, quality control, and environmental mindfulness.”5.11 Tactical
