5.11 Tactical Sabre 2.0 Jacket Review


5.11 has just introduced its new Sabre 2.0 jacket.  After years of research this new update to the original Sabre will not disappoint.

Sabre 2.0
If you have worn the original 5.11 Sabre Jacket you are going to love the new Sabre 2.0.
Taking all of the end user feedback and comments received, 5.11 is introducing the next level of performance and design in its new Sabre 2.0.
With its upgraded fully waterproof, completely breathable, seam sealed membrane this jacket is sure to outperform almost every jacket on the market today.  The new updated mesh and nylon liner has been added for more breathability than ever, while still maintaining its fast undercover and conceal carry look.
Upgraded YKK fully waterproof zippers in a matte finish, allow for a sleek and fast look.  Increases in size to the shoulder patches allow for larger or multiple patches.  With its new updated front vertical chest pockets and back up belt system compatible hand warmer pockets, this jacket has more storage than ever.  Add to that the right and left shoulder pockets and this jacket can store just about anything.
With its two front pull out ID panels and one large back ID panel, you can go from a covert to overt operation in seconds.   An updated fit and storeable or removable hood that is completely waterproof for extra protection.  We’ve also added a vertical zipped back pocket right near the lumbar for storage if you choose to remove the hood or not roll it up in the collar.
And for one of the final additions, 5.11 added its new Quixip side access system to the Sabre 2.0 which allows for conceal and covert carry, for the quickest access to a concealed sidearm on the market today.
