Woolrich, PA., September 14, 2011 — Woolrich Elite Series™ is proud to be named the official clothing of the International Defensive Pistol Association’s inaugural World Championship match to be held at the Universal Shooting Academy in Frostproof, Fla., September 21-24.
Limited to the top 400 IDPA shooters, the IDPA World Championship will showcase the best defensive handgunners from around the world.
“The principles of IDPA, with its focus on concealment, tactics and defensive shooting skills, makes it a natural fit for Woolrich Elite Series,” said Jerry Rinder, vice president of sales. “We believe that our concealed carry products are tools that are just as important for the armed citizen as a holster or even a firearm.”
Woolrich Elite Series will outfit the match’s directors, range staff and range officers with Elite Pants, Elite Short-Sleeve Tactical Polos and Operator Hats.
“Woolrich Elite products are widely used in our sport and they have a well-deserved reputation for quality,” said Robert Ray, IDPA’s membership director. “This is also a major reason why we carry Elite products in our Pro Shop and are proud to have Woolrich as the sponsor of our Safety Officer wardrobe.
IDPA competitors use service pistols and full-power ammunition to solve self-defense scenarios. Shooters use cover and draw from concealment. Many competitors use the same gear they carry daily.
Woolrich Elite Series offers a full line of concealed carry clothing designed for the needs of the armed citizen or off-duty law enforcement officer. Drawing from the company’s vast sportswear catalog, each
garment has a number of tactical features added to the design. No other tactical clothing company can offer more than 180 years of experience in clothing design and manufacturing. At Woolrich Elite Series, clothing is the sole focus.
