ClawGear RAIDER MK.IV Pants

ClawGear has released the latest version of their popular RAIDER Pant.  The Raider MK.IV is a lighweight and versatile “mission” pant design with improved fit and comfort.


Designed to be simple and lightweight – yet still packing useful features and extras with the greatest comfort – the MK.IV version includes an improved waist adjustment system with elastic components for better comfort and freedom of movement.  The pocket layout has also been improved with extended cargo pockets that feature an additional compartment accessible from outside that holds a 30-round STANAG magazine for rapid access.


The most profound change in the MK.IV version however is in the knee area.  The new knee design features an inner height adjustment capability, and a new modular knee pad compartment that allows the use of a wide range of different knee pad inserts – although ClawGear recommends the TRUST HP knee pad system from D3O, which is available as an orderable option with the pants.


Currently only available in MultiCam and RAL 7013 (Brown-Grey).
