Blackhawk will launch its new fall apparel line at the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting this weekend in Atlanta, Georgia, the apparel and gear maker announced Monday.

The new line features eight new clothing styles to include a “perfect” shirt collection, a pair of pants and two jackets.

The Purpose Shirt, Precision Shirt and Verity Shirt are among the new additions. The series was developed with concealed carry consumer input to suit the comfort and needs of carry enthusiasts.

Each shirt is fine-tuned with its own set of attributes. The Purpose Shirt utilizes Tac Flow 2.0 fabric — a lightweight, quick-dry material that is designed for breathability and movement — while the Precision Shirt includes a stain resistant coating to resist oil, water and stains. The Verity Shirt offers a plaid design with snaps for wannabe hipsters or those who prefer less printing and quicker access to weaponry. The Cool Reach Polo rounds out the shirt offerings, boasting sweat activated technology which creates a cooling sensation to keep wearers both cool and dry.

“We are excited about the extensions to the apparel line for Fall 2017 season,” Jamie Lindberg, Blackhawk Senior Manager of Apparel Merchandising, said in a 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.”

Though no pricing or official availability timeline has been released, Blackhawk’s current line of men’s apparel falls within the $50 to $100 range.
