BLACKHAWK! is set to launch a new fall apparel line designed for concealed carry applications. The new line features eight new clothing styles, including multiple shirts, two jackets and a pair of pants.

The “perfect” shirt collection features the Purpose shirt, Precision shirt and Verity shirt, all of which were developed after BLACKHAWK! asked customers what would make a shirt ideal for concealed carry. The Purpose shirt boasts a Tac Flow 2.0 fabric, which is a lightweight, fast-drying fabric designed for movement and breathability. The Precision shirt includes a stain resistant coating to resist oil, water and stains, while the Verity shirt has a plaid fabric that reduces printing, as well as breakaway snap plackets for quick access to the firearm. There’s also a new polo called the Cool React Polo that sports sweat activated technology on the fabric’s interior, creating a cooling sensation to keep the end user cool and dry.
The press release doesn’t include much information on the two jackets and pair of pants, only to say that they’re also included in the new line and are designed for those who require function and security in their garments.
“We are excited about the extensions to the apparel line for Fall 2017 season,” Jamie Lindberg, BLACKHAWK! Senior Manager of Apparel Merchandising, said in the press release. “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.”

There’s no word yet on the MSRP, but, as Guns.com points out, given the fact that BLACKHAWK!’s current men’s apparel line will run you somewhere in the $25 to $100 range, it seems safe to assume the new line will fall somewhere in there as well.
