First Tactical’s Defender Series pant and shirt
First Tactical’s Defender Series maintains the professional look needed when on normal patrol but also boasts specialized pockets for oversized gear, a specialized yoke to eliminate unwanted bulk, and oversized sleeve pockets that can accept patches or embroidery.
The Defender Series is the first to use a two-way, mechanical stretch NYCO fabric with wicking, according to the company. Articulated elbows, running gussets, and vented mesh locations provide “advanced movement and breathability that make hot days with full gear a little easier.”
The Defender Shirt is made with a 6.5oz, 100 per cent polyester jersey body and the pants are a cotton and Cordura nylon mix with a mechanical two-way stretch double ripstop and moisture wicking finish. First Tactical also notes its “Double Tough Knee” features an extra layer of welded reinforcement and a zippered side access pocket that accepts First Tactical’s Defender Knee Pad. The pants also feature a Comfort Flex Action Waist, reinforced belt loops, and more than 25 pockets.
