Looking for a new spot to get outdoor gear and more? A new 5.11 Tactical outpost has opened for business at 2150 Wible Road in Benton Park.

The retail store initially began as the FBI Training Academy's main provider for training pants, according to the franchise's website. Eventually, the brand expanded beyond providing clothing for law enforcement to providing outdoor and fitness clothing and gear for all. 

At 5.11 Tactical, you'll find women's and men's clothing, bags and backpacks, footwear, luggage, uniforms and more. 

With a five-star rating out of three reviews on Yelp so far, 5.11 Tactical has been warmly received by patrons.

Ramiro V., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on September 6, wrote, "I've been using 5.11 gear now since 2012 for work, and just causal gear, and I love the quality and the durability of this product. I'm happy and glad I don't have to go all the way to Fresno or order it online anymore."

Yelper Ron W. added, “If you want everything you buy to last, this is the place to shop. Great service from friendly, energetic staff that strives to give you a great shopping experience."

Swing on by to take a peek for yourself: 5.11 Tactical is open from 10 a.m.–8 p.m. on Monday-Saturday and 11 a.m.–6 p.m. on Sunday.
