Tactics are what you use to achieve your goal. Strategy is what you tell people you used so they’ll write books about you. This apparel is what you wear to look good while you’re involved with tactics. That’s strategy! So we suppose it works for both.

boy oh boy would I love one of those flannels, too bad the pictures aren’t labeled with the color name and I have no idea what kind of colors “Ox Blood”, “Regatta”, and “Captain” would translate to in normal color language…
I own a lot of 5.11 apparel incl. T-Shirts, workout shirts, polos and tactical SS shirts and I can tell you everything they make is top notch! But, sorry Woot, even though $19.95 is a good price for their performance polo shirts, right now the charcoal and silver/tan polos are selling at Field Supply in a blow out deal for $9.99 each. However the picture of the polo your showing as “charcoal” is not even close to the color Field Supply shows as charcoal, theirs looks well, basically black, yours looks more like it’s some shade of blue. Anyway, one of you are wrong. And they are selling the flannel long sleeves for $19.99 but it looks like they might all be sold out. Woot’s prices are a little better for the range vests and the RealTree shirts, providing they are apple to apple comparisons, but I didn’t check that. But again, for anyone who has never owned any 5.11 gear, it is high quality durable stuff!
I was just jumping back and forth between sites and wasn’t being very accurate re: the data on the flannels because it looked like they were sold out so I really shouldn’t have mentioned them at all, thanks for pointing out there were significant differences anyway. I caught myself later and let everyone with interest know they would have to determine for themselves what was and wasn’t apples to apples. I own a number or their polos but like and don’t have the green and if I hadn’t just made some large purchases I’d jump on it because $19.99 is a good price and 5.11 garb is good stuff. But, because of my recent purchases, I might just have to sneak up on it. But re: the charcoal coloring question, the answer is the shirts on Field Supply are actually lighter than what’s shown in their picture but not as light as the picture of Woot’s charcoal shirt.
Any company that labels a flannel shirt as ‘tactical’ apparel loses all credibility to me, and is just adding buzzwords onto crap. This is almost as bad as the ‘Teton Sports bags’ that were poorly built backpacks without waterbottle holder, sternum or waist straps, and zippers that exploded at the first sign of stress.
