The photo shoot was done by top Israeli tactical photographer Benny Levin, and Agilite also teamed up with IWI to showcase the latest suppressed X95, Uzi Pro, the Galil Ace and other weapons from IWI used by Israeli Special Forces.

UF PRO® Striker Field Shirt now available in RAL 7013 color

With its anatomical cut, hook-and-loop chest pocket closures, and the typical UF PRO® Striker sleeve pocket configuration, the Striker Field Shirt can be comfortably worn underneath chest rigs or plate carriers.

It also works very well as a stand-alone shirt or in combination with the UF PRO® Striker XT BDU, P-40 or Tac 2 trousers. The shirt can also be equipped with Flex Elbow Protectors for comfortable and effective elbow protection.

Previously available in PenCott-GreenZone™ camouflage, the UF PRO® Striker Field Shirt is now also available the chameleon-esque RAL 7013 color shade as well.

So, what exactly is the RAL 7013 color?  Officially, its also known as brown-grey – but it actually has a different look depending on the lighting and surrounding terrain.  Sometimes it looks very grey, sometimes it has a brownish cast to it, and sometimes it looks more like a darker, greyer, shade of olive green (with some muddy brown thrown into the mix).  I like to think of it as ‘Feld-Grau’ that’s a bit more to the grey end of the spectrum and has a bit of brown mixed into it to flatten it out.  At any rate, its such a versatile, shade-shifting color that the Austrian Army literally uses it for everything from uniforms and equipment to small arms and vehicles.

And now its UF PRO’s response to the ’50 shades of tactical grey’ trend as well – which is just fine.


UF PRO recently announced their new P-40 All-Terrain and Tac-2 Pants, the perfect all-round functional performance pants for tactical environments and activities.

The new P-40 All-Terrain and Tac-2 pants are designed to follow all of your moves – while still providing full functionality thanks to the ergonomic layout of the pants’ features.  An anatomic cut, as well as a breathable and hardwearing Schoeller-dynamic stretch material in the seat of the pants provides these exceptional performance  characteristics.



The P-40 All-Terrain and Tac-2 Pants offer different kind of pocket configuration for maximum functionality and accessibility.


The P-40 All-Terrain Pants offer a two way access side pocket with huge storage capacity, inner compartments and an attached gear pocket with a security flap.

Caution, this announcement carries a SPOILER ALERT…

Seen in a crucial and dramatic segment of Season 3; PenCott™ camouflage patterns are seen in use by ‘Russian’ soldiers taking part in a peacekeeping  mission in the Middle East.   The Russian soldiers are seen wearing BadLands™ uniforms, whereas GreenZone™ uniforms are worn by the Russian officers and by Russian President Petrov.  All of the PenCott camouflage uniforms used are the CPU (Combat Patrol Uniform) model made by Polish company Helikon-Tex.
