Direct Action – Tactical Equipment and Uniforms for Demanding Operators.
DIRECT ACTION ® is a project born from combining great design and manufacturing capabilities with an up-close-and-personal understanding of the specific end-user needs of special operations forces. DIRECT ACTION® a line which debuted at IWA 2014 in Nürnberg, Germany, is Helikon-Tex’s new independent brand. It consists of a full system of head gear, garments, load carrying equipment, gloves, and boots, all of which is available in a range of solid colors and camouflage patterns, including Hyde Definition’s PenCott patterns.
This combination has created the approach of an individual-as-a-system that is open and flexible with all necessary options, yet remains streamlined and avoids over-burdening. Each part of the system interfaces with the other components: weapons, load bearing equipment, backpacks, jackets, duty uniforms and even camouflage pattern – each of these is a part of a whole, and a key component that’s critical to mission success.
When creating DIRECT ACTION ® every detail was rigorously thought-out from this systemic perspective – no random choices, no compromises, no “same-old-stuff” design approach, no shying away from new technology – and all based on the firsthand, real world experience of elite special operations units.
Stay tuned for more information about new gear which is shortly to be presented!
