COATESVILLE, PA—theEMSstore.com delivers protection, performance and durability with 5.11 EMS apparel's built-in, user-driven features. From the newest Taclite EMS Pants and Taclite EMS Jumpsuit to their original EMS pants, 5.11 has engineered apparel that can stand up to the demanding environments faced by EMTs and paramedics on a daily basis.
New to 5.11's EMS line, the Taclite EMS Pants and Jumpsuit are constructed of advanced 6 oz. 65% polyester/35% cotton ripstop fabric to stay cool and comfortable, even under the hottest conditions. The fabric has been treated with DuPont HP Teflon fabric protector which adds a durable finish and repels stains, soil and fluid. This light, but tough, fabric is highly breathable and fast-drying. It is also machine washable in cold water for the easiest possible care.
Both the Taclite pants and jumpsuit have a gusseted crotch for enhanced movement and plenty of purposefully designed EMS-specific pockets and gear holders. Two unique, smaller cargo pockets are conveniently positioned on the lower legs for faster access to critical gear when you are kneeling over a patient. An extra fabric layer on the knees adds durability and creates interior pockets for low-profile neoprene kneepads—provided FREE from 5.11 using a mail-in coupon.
Taclite EMS Pants feature an action waist—a self-adjusting tunnel waistband that moves with you, keeping you comfortable as you maneuver in and around patients. The pants also feature Double-Time belt loops which feature an extra-wide 1.5-inch belt loop, which can support a riggers/rescue belt, or a 2.25-inch duty belt to comfortably carry the weight of a radio, flashlight, EMS holster sets, tools and other critical gear. A thinner 3/8-inch loop is centered over each main loop to provide convenient additional attachment points for a radio strap, lanyards, carabiners and other accessories.
EMS cargo pockets on both thighs provide specialized storage and easy access to critical gear. The pant's popular, extra-deep front pockets have been redesigned with additional support and reinforcement at the bottom edges to carry a clip-on knife or flashlight, and protect the material from wear. Patented rear slash pockets and rear web strap are standard and a new welted wallet pocket on the left side adds to the storage options.
Heavy duty durability comes from several elements including genuine YKK zippers, Prym snaps, tough cuff hems, double and triple-needle stitching, and bartacks in high-stress areas. These 5.11 Taclite EMS Pants are available in dark navy only. Men's sizes fit 28–44-inch waist and 30–36-inch inseams, while women's sizes fit 2–16 and are available in regular or long lengths.
The Taclite EMS Jumpsuit has been designed specifically for EMS personnel to deliver one-piece protection and comfort. With many of the same features as the Taclite EMS Pants the jumpsuit has a two-way, full-length front zipper that opens from the top or bottom, for fast access and easy on and off. In addition, it features an expandable waist and side seams, a bi-swing back to allow for superior comfort, and virtually full range of motion—even when down on one knee. The Velcro adjustable belt loops can accommodate belts up to 2.25-inches, while the elasticized waistband moves with you and adjusts to your body. The side belt loops have utility loops to attach additional equipment or an ID.
