First Tactical have now launched into the european market as planned and the UK is particularly lucky as they have announced the opening of their first ‘shop in shop’, which is on the first floor of the long established and well respected Trekitt mountaineering and outdoor store, which you’ll find at 51 Eign Gate in Hereford. You can also check this out via www.trekitthereford.co.uk.
First Tactical offers a full range of clothing and complementary equipment for a diverse range of users across all fields. The First Tactical range encompasses boots, trousers, technical shirts, outerwear, gloves, knives, flashlights, socks, packs and bags, with more categories to follow. Many of the clothing and footwear models are also available in ladies fit, which I think is tremendous.
The Men’s Tactix Series System Jacket is the ultimate go-to for all of your tactical jacket needs, and as we’re now properly into Autumn I can see I’m going to be using my test sample extensively. The outer shell is 100% waterproof, breathable, blood-borne pathogen resistant, fully seam sealed wind resistant nylon, designed to move and breathe while keeping you guarded from the elements.
The design is cut specifically to fit snugly, and a revolutionary 3-way adjustable hood design and a zip-in Softshell give this jacket the edge you need in the field. The tough seam-sealed outer shell is made of 100% nylon and is waterproof, breathable, and wind repellent. This superior material is sealed tight against the elements, while zippered ventilation provides breathability, and the special underarm design allows for freedom of movement. The zip-out Softshell offers an additional layer of protection and comfort with water and wind resistant exterior and warm, soft brushed fleece interior. This is perfect for wearing on its own in warmer conditions or zipped into the shell for extra warmth and comfort when the mercury drops. Priced at £219.95, this is a lot of jacket for the money, but if you require a longer length shell, then there is also a Parka version available at £229.95.
Now, as good as the clothing, footwear and accessories are, the First Tactical ‘nylon’ is absolutely first rate. I’ve been using the Tactix 1 Day Plus Pack on a daily basis now for a little over six months and have subjected it to much abuse; it’s still looking great and I’ve no negatives to report.
First Tactical offer a full range of pouches, packs, guns bags and EDC items, and from this last category I really like the Ascend Messenger Bag; this messenger style office-to-field bag is designed to provide all of the room and durability you require to carry out any tasks; it’s great for lugging your laptop and all your office gear around, but serves equally well out on the range.
The nylon fabric and premium YKK® hardware give you a sturdy exterior you can rely on. Foam padded main and computer compartments keep items separate and protected, while three inner drop pockets and zip-out water bottle/gear pockets provide extra storage space with organisation. These features, along with the hidden CCW pocket, set this case apart from many other tactical bags. Made from a combination of 500D and 1000D Cordura, this is a tough as you need bag, and at £79.95 is very well-priced.
I’m gradually working my way through the samples that First Tactical generously supplied for me to look at and thus far I have to say that I’m very impressed with all of them. The kit is beautifully designed, and meticulously put together from high quality materials and components; I can’t see any of it letting me down any time soon!
With SHOT Show and IWA now ‘just around the corner’ I’m very interested to see what First Tactical will be showing me in the New Year.
