When the 5.11 started it only had one product to sell a pair of mountaineering trousers with heavily reinforced knees and backend with a sewed-on strap for hanging carabineers, How ever these same features plus a few more began to appeal to those in the law enforcement industry. The strap sown to the back of the trouser originally designed to hold the carabineers ended up being used to hold the bottom of a holster tight against the body and keep it from “printing” under a shirt. There was also a small pocket on the right side, which ended up being used as a spare magazine pocket. It was these multi-purpose designed trousers (all be it done by mistake) that gave 5.11 the very foundation they needed to become a specialist in tactical equipment.
