PRACTACSYS: AKU Pilgrim High Leg Boots – used & abused

Practical Tactical Systems (Practacsys) came into being as the direct result of a group of like-minded people, who had banded together before on numerous specialist projects, deciding to bring a new kind of news and reviews website to the international tactical community.

Our friends at PracTacSys are professionals from diverse areas of the tactical and firearms industries, including those from the manufacturing side and those who are active operationally on a daily basis.  Together, their aim is to personally use, abuse, trial and evaluate over time and then report as objectively as possible on their findings and impressions.


They recently reported on their findings after stomping and yomping around in a pair of AKU’s Pilgrim High Leg Boots.  These boots are available in Black, Forest / MTP Brown and Desert Biege.  Check out the full report on PracTacSys.

Agilite’s NORSK “Mohawk” FAST helmet cover

Agilite has just released a variant of its Mohawk Ops Core FAST Helmet Cover in Norwegian Woodland Camo.  The Mohawk NORSK cover was designed specially for Norway’s Rigg As Tactical Group, a leading supplier of equipment to Norway’s Military.

Mohawk NORSK Square

Norway was the first country to adopt the Ops Core FAST Helmet on a wide-scale basis for regular troops.  The Mohawk NORSK is made with authentic Norwegian national camouflage pattern material, comes in two sizes, and will bring added helmet-borne functionality to Norwegian troops using the OpsCore FAST helment.

“We enjoyed working with Agilite on this project to allow us to provide another unique high quality tactical product to Norwegian forces. The combination of our experience with Norway’s Military, Law Enforcement and Security units and Agilite’s excellent level of design and manufacture not far from Europe, is always a winning combination.” said Joachim Riise, CEO of Rigg As Tactical Group.

UF PRO® “Silent Warrior” Sniper Smock and Trousers

Previously only available as a restricted, special item for European military and law enforcement special operations units, UF PRO is now offering their innovative, purpose-designed and built “Silent Warrior” Sniper Suit on the open market too.


The UF PRO® Silent Warrior Sniper Suit is designed to fulfill the highly demanding requirements of professional scouts and snipers.  As the functional, camouflaged outer-layer of a multiple-layer garment system, it has to provide all the specific features to support the user’s role;  it has to protect against the ingress of insects; and it has to provide superb camouflage and concealment performance in the visual and near-Infra-Red spectrum.


As the Silent Warrior suit is worn as an over garment it is tailored with a looser cut than UF PRO’s Striker XT BDU system, so that it can be easily adjusted to fit over different base, insulation, and wet weather protection layers.
