This is my third year of going to the Robinsons Red Hot Sale and my first time to discover the 5.11 Tactical Series outlet. Although I believe in retail therapy, I rarely ever make purchases that are not on sale or are priced lower than they are elsewhere. Waiting for promotions like the Red Hot Sale of Robinsons Malls is always an exciting part of my retail therapy.
This year, I was pleasantly surprised to find myself seriously considering purchases from the 5.11 Tactical Series outlet even at regular prices. The quality of their merchandise is definitely something I would pay good money for. And besides, the freebies that they automatically give when you make a purchase are just as good as any discount.
According to their Marketing Associate, Ms. Jennie Ruzgal, you do not really have to be a hiker or a climber to shop at 5.11 Tactical Series. Some of their accessories and apparel can be worn in the urban jungle too. Take a look at some of the pieces that they have on their shelves and racks:
The MOAB Pack – the name is basically short for Mobile Operation Attachment Bag. These are packs that can be carried in a variety of ways to efficiently distribute the weight and make it convenient for you to carry the load.
Convertible Zip-Off Khakis – these pants are interestingly made in a unique concept. You can zip off the lower leg of these pants to convert them into tactical shorts. These pants are made of lightweight poly-cotton fabric that is fade-resistant and that is treated for stain and soil resistance.
Tactical Vests – these can be worn for outdoor activities where you need moderate protection against weather elements. This vest is constructed of sturdy material and is designed with multiple pockets to hold your essentials and protect them from weather damage as well.
The Cell Phone Carrier – keeping your mobile phone on a lanyard in a cute cushioned pouch is not always a wise choice. There are times when you need a hardy case such as this one from the 5.11 Tactical Series outlet to keep your phone safe and secure.
It’s funny how I’ve had a trusty piece of accessory from this hardy brand for quite a while and only discover the store now. Someone gifted me with a pair of 5.11 gloves that I have been using for wakeboarding. It was great finding the store while scurrying through the stores at the Robinsons Red Hot Sale. My day was full of pleasant surprises as I discovered loads of fabulous items at discounted prices – up to 70% mark down on most items from most of the stores participating in the Red Hot Sale. It’s always nice to discover something new like when I learned that you can avail life insurance quotes online no medical exam needed which I’ll tell you more next time. Perhaps, on my next blog post.
Anyway, the annual sale opened last August 10 and will run until August 31 together with other promotions like the Shopaholic Spotted and the Red Hot Giveaway.
