For many years US brand 5:11 Tactical have provided comfortable, durable and functional tactical clothing, footwear and gear, and they are constantly adding to what is already a very comprehensive range. As well as providing traditionally styled tactical clothing they have more recently developed out into more casual areas with fleeces and shirts that would be equally at home in the pub as on the range.
Keeping with the more relaxed vibe, a real favourite of mine amongst the new pieces in the clothing line is the Diablo Hoodie. Made from 100% anti-pilling 5.9oz brushed Polyester fleece, the Diablo features a classic kangaroo-style hand-warmer pocket at the front, large protective hood with integrated adjustable draw cord, a zip utility pocket on left sleeve for additional storage, a Velcro patch on upper right sleeve for your team patches and a tonal contrast stitching and subtle badging which gives it a great look.
The Diablo features genuine YKK zippers for extra durability. Thanks to its reinforced pockets and weather-resistant construction, it offers excellent freedom of movement with superb protection against the wind, rain, and weather.
It’s a super piece of clothing to wear, light yet very durable. As a layering piece it’s a great mid-layer garment, as although the cut is reasonably generous it’s still snug enough to wear over a base layer and under a shell garment if things turn really unpleasant. I’ve been putting it through its paces during my range testing sessions and thus far it’s standing up well to all I can throw at it!
The Diablo Hoodie is available in Fatigue (olive), Storm Grey, Tundra, and Cobalt Blue and Military1st have them at £47.70, which is a great price for the quality of the materials, design and attention to detail. If you’re in the market for something more casual for those cooler days then you should give the Diablo your fullest consideration.
