UF PRO to Spotlight New Striker X Combat Pants & Other Tactical Gear at Milipol
TRZIN, SLOVENIA (11 Nov. 2019)—Homeland Security officials and other attendees will get eyes on the newest and best tactical garments and accessories from UF PRO at the Milipol international fair set for 19-22 Nov. in Paris, UF PRO today announced.
UF PRO, which makes advanced-technology tactical garments and related gear for military special-forces teams and for law-enforcement agencies worldwide, said it plans to display at its exhibit booth (5D 083) a soon-to-debut range of highly anticipated combat shirts and pants known as Striker X.
“Our Striker X range is built to meet the demanding needs of military operators, whose input we drew on in designing both the shirts and pants,” said Armin Wagner, head of UF PRO product development. “Milipol is the big international gathering of homeland security players, the leading event of its kind in Europe.”
According to Wagner, the Striker X range is notable for extreme ruggedness combined with remarkable comfort.
“Striker X combat pants and shirts are made with high-tech, best-in-class materials that offer no-melt/no-drip,” Wagner explained. “All the seams are streamlined, and the places most vulnerable to rips and damage from abrasion are super-reinforced.
“Yet, they’re also exceptionally breathable. And, thanks to their anatomic fit, they move freely as though they’re part of the wearer’s body.”
Along with the new Striker X combat garments, UF PRO will showcase the special Striker FR range which can only be purchased by government entities, Wagner said.
However, those two patterns will not be the only ones to make an appearance at the UF PRO exhibit station, Wagner assured.
“We have a number of other new colours we want to parade past our guests at the booth,” he said. “One of these is Steel Grey, and it will be presented on our upcoming Delta OL 3.0 winter jackets and pants, as well as on our already available Striker BDUs.
“Another new colour is PHANTOMLEAF. A novel algorithm was employed in designing this adaptive pattern, which is why it can cause a wearer to visually blend in against almost any background. The surrounding landscape or environment may change, but this one pattern works in them all. It’s available only to governments in this pattern, but the WASP II Z3a pattern is developed for civilian usage as well.”
One more camouflage pattern expected to garner an abundance of interest is CONCAMO, which will be shown on UF PRO’s Striker HT combat pants, Wagner said.
“CONCAMO is short for ‘confusion camouflage,’” he explained. “And confusion is exactly what it produces in the brain of someone looking in the direction of a CONCAMO wearer. Its eight blended colours combined with an array of scientifically structured shapes toss a wrench into the subconscious mind, preventing awareness of what’s practically right in front of your face.”
Other major attractions announced for the UF PRO exhibit:
- Monsoon XT Gen.2 Rain Jacket and Monsoon XT Rain Pants. The jacket features a unique hood-harnessing system that doesn’t restrict the wearer’s field of view. UF PRO air/pac® inserts in the shoulders help better distribute the weight of a plate carrier or backpack. Both the jacket and pants are made of 100-percent waterproof laminates and include functional elements such as ventilation zippers, zippers for easy access of pockets beneath outerwear, and boot hooks to prevent the pants from bunching or riding up along the wearer’s legs.
- AcE Winter Combat Shirt & Delta AcE Plus Gen.2 Jacket. Both are designed for bitter cold-weather conditions by wearers engaged in a significant amount of sweat-breaking physical activity. Functional elements common to both include air/pac® inserts, highly water-repellent and windproof face fabric, and the ability to accommodate a plate carrier and backpack. The jacket offers abrasion-resistant side ventilation panels, while the shirt comes with a zipper side ventilation system.
- Delta ML Gen.2 Jacket. This feather-light, thermal-insulated tactical jacket is making its public debut at Milipol. It’s suited for use as either a middle or outer layer, and features abrasion-resistant side panels, G-Loft thermal insulation filling, and moisture-wicking microfleece lining. The face fabric is water-repellent and windproof.
Wagner extended an invitation to Milipol 2019 attendees to not only visit the UF PRO booth but also arrange one-on-one meetings with the company’s top executives to talk in a relaxed setting about tactical gear and other matters related to homeland security needs.
