REVIEW: UF PRO SmallPac Monsoon rain suit- Part 1

Nobody else does kit reviews quite as full-on, in-depth and hard-core as Project Gecko does.  In their latest review they get (literally) ‘under the hood’ with the SmallPac Monsoon rain suit from UF PRO.

Paratroopers with U.S. Army Alaska’s 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), 25th Infantry Division, descend to the ground under T-11 parachute canopies during Exercise Spartan Pegasus Feb. 24, 2015 at Deadhorse, Alaska.

The extremely cold demonstration in airborne operations and arctic mobility took place in one of the northern-most territories of Alaska, well north of the Earth’s Arctic Circle. Spartan Pegasus allows USARAK the ability to maximize training resources across multiple units to maintain readiness in a wide array of mission sets across the Arctic and Pacific region.

Enforce Tac / IWA 2015 PenCott™ “Shoppers’ Guide”

Hyde Definition seems to be marching steadily on towards conquering Europe with their PenCott™ family of camouflage patterns – at least it looks that way according to this list of exhibitors at the 2015 Enforce Tac and IWA…

S.O.D. Gear

Italy’s renowned S.O.D. Gear was one of the very first high-end, real-deal manufacturers to pick up on the PenCott patterns, and sent them off with some pretty cool dudes to open doors and meet people in some interesting places…  S.O.D. Gear will be at Enforce Tac for the first time this year.
