"We are excited about the extensions to the apparel line for fall 2017 season," said Jamie Lindberg, Blackhawk senior manager of apparel merchandising. "We feel confident we have a comprehensive line that really aligns with our consumer expectations of performance and quality, as well as brings a modern design aesthetic to the market."
The new lineup will include pants, shirts and jackets that provide comfortable performance gear for end users. The collection features the company's Purpose, Precision and Verity Shirts, all designed based on Blackhawk's consumer survey on the qualities needed for an ideal concealed-carry shirt.
Several features of the shirts include the company's proprietary Tac Flow 2.0 fabric, designed for movement and breathability. The Precision Shirt incorporates a special coating that resists staining from oil, water and other materials. The Verity Shirt uses plaid patterns to reduce gun printing, as well as snap plackets that ensure easy accessibility to a concealed-carry gun.
The company also plans to roll out a Cool React Polo that incorporates a proprietary technology that creates a cooling sensation on the inside of the shirt when it is activated by sweat. The line will also include two jackets and one pair of pants that work to provide extra comfort and concealment to the end user.
