Helikon-Tex from Poland has been serving the tactical, law enforcement & security, outdoor and enthusiast markets in one way or another since 1983. The company currently provides a wide range of options – from shorts and t-shirts to cold and wet weather gear – which are available in a broad assortment of solid colors and camouflage patterns.
Some major new developments appear to be on their way to market though… Over the past week the company has been posting a series of teasers on their Facebook page, that hint at the shape of things to come.
Be sure to stop by their booth if you’re there…. In the meantime, we’ve included the full series of ‘teasers’ below:
BE-X (‘BEgadi eXclusive) is an in-house brand of BEGADI GmbH, Germany and aims to close the gap between high-end military-grade tactical gear and low-cost commercial gear.
BE-X recently started working with the PenCott-GreenZone® camouflage pattern and have begun releasing a range of products featuring this camo scheme. Some of the products are new designs and some are classics from their line-up, such as BE-X’s modernized interpretation of the IDF ‘EPHOD’ rig (see our detailed review from 2010 here).
Also included in the BE-X GreenZone® line-up are their modular Chest Harness and light Plate Carrier, as well as a wide range of pouches.
Besides load carrying gear, BE-X have also already brought out their pocket-transportable ‘LRRP Tarp’ system (seen below) and are also preparing a line of field/tactical garments for release soon too.
The full BE-X range can be found here: www.begadishop.de
Direct Action unveiled their full line of next-generation gear at Enforce Tac / IWA (we even got a special sneak-peak at some of their next gen + gear that’s still under wraps!) – you will be impressed.
The full line is expected to be available for general purchase by June / July of this year. In the meantime, download their catalog and feast your eyes on all the goodness that is Direct Action gear… GO LOUD!

We reported back before the show that this year there was a huge increase in the number of companies that would be featuring products in PenCott™ patterns on their booths. And indeed, visitors to IWA 2015 certainly would have seen plenty of it – as this round-up shows below.
In no special order, here is a run-down on all the PenCott™ products that were on display in Nuremburg.
New things on their booth this year were the ventilated CPU Boonie Hat and the PCS Smock – both items were displayed in the GreenZone™ pattern.
