On the industry's biggest stage, BLACKHAWK! will unveil duty/tactical offerings, off-duty options and active wear designed especially for women. Show attendees can also meet new BLACKHAWK! spokeswoman Aysha Webb. The tactical firearms instructor will give a live presentation in booth #14562 at 3:00 PM PST on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Fit, Function and Performance for WomenBLACKHAWK's new offerings aren't men's clothing in smaller sizes-they're all new garments cut, fit and designed especially for the female body. For those that protect and serve the clothing they wear means more than comfort. They need it to allow them to do their job to the best of their ability every time. This clothing line takes that into consideration and gives women never-seen-before quality, comfort and performance.

"We are proud of this new line," said Director of Apparel Development Pat Christianson. "We started from scratch with these garments to find options that really catered to women. Our duty and tactical gear is designed with performance in mind. And we also added style and comfort into options ladies can wear when they're not working or training. This line is off to a great start, and will only continue to grow."

Train Hard or Relax in ComfortActive wear introductions include antimicrobial technology, moisture-wicking and compression to give women excellent options for the gym or next training session. For time off duty or just out and about, BLACKHAWK! offers women's tops and pants.

These stylish pieces factor in everything from concealed carry to wrinkle-resistant and moisture-wicking fabrics. Features like this have made BLACKHAWK's men's clothing very popular, and are sure to be a hit in a line designed especially for the modern female.

Aysha Webb at SHOT 2012BLACKHAWK! spokeswoman Aysha Webb will be at the 2012 SHOT Show. This tactical firearm instructor is a natural fit for the brand. Webb trains shooters at LAX Firing Range in Inglewood, California. She's also an acclaimed jazz singer. SHOT Show attendees can meet this multi-talented shooter, instructor and performer at the BLACKHAWK! booth #14562 at 3:00 PM the first three days of the show.

This new line is expected to be on shelves by mid-April 2012. Stay tuned to www.blackhawk.com and www.facebook.com/blackhawkpg to learn more about the new women's apparel.
