SEALS Action Gear is pleased to announce that they are now stocking the full range of UF PRO® Tactical apparel.  This European made, high quality clothing is second-to-none in construction, functionality and striking design; and includes the following key products:

The flagship of the range – the XT pants are setting new industry standards for operational uniforms.

Striker XT Combat Pants

Giving specialists a significant increase in usefulness and efficiency was the highest priority during the development of the Striker XT Combat Pants.

The stretch areas have been expanded and new and ergonomically perfected knee protection has been introduced. This is made using an intelligent combination of technologies that enable highly efficient protection of the knee and tibia areas without fitting the protection system with a Velcro strap.

The width-adjustable lower leg area enables the effective fixing of objects in the lower leg pocket, including during rapid movement.

The large side pocket with inner compartments can be accessed in two ways.

The stretch areas in the hip/buttocks area and above and below the knee protection are made of an extremely resilient Schoeller®-dynamic stretch material.

In the torso area, the mix of polyester and merino wool offers extraordinary durability, wearing comfort and odor-inhibition.  The cut of the sleeve and the slide-in pockets have been ergonomically improved so that you will always land on the inserted elbow pads. Furthermore, this optimized cut allows users to pull up their sleeves comfortably for medical access.

An additional elastic ribbon in the underarm pocket offers better fixing for inserted equipment.

New ‘Multitarn’ camouflage for the Bundeswehr

A couple of days ago we presented the first English-language news about the new snow and multi-terrain camouflage patterns being adopted by the German Bundeswehr.  Today, we are able to bring you some further details about the so-called ‘Multitarn’ multi-terrain pattern.

First, it appears that the pattern is being called ‘Multitarn’ – thereby connecting the ‘multi’-terrain colours of the pattern with the legacy ‘tarn’ (camouflage) of the ‘Flecktarn’ pattern geometry it is based on.

The development of the Multitarn pattern was initially driven by a request from the German special forces, and the new pattern will be made available to them first.  In the longer term,  other units will also receive the new pattern.  Equipping all in-theatre soldiers with a common camouflage uniform pattern makes obvious sense, as it is then more difficult for the enemy to specifically target special forces troops due to their different uniform.

New Camouflage Patterns for the Bundeswehr

According to an article published today on the German-language ‘Strategie & Technik’ blog, the German Armed Forces have had two new camouflage patterns added to their Flecktarn repertoire – a new 3-color snow camo pattern and a 6-color ‘multi-terrain’ pattern.

00-neue Tarndrucke

‘Strategie & Technik’ reports that the patterns were developed by the Wehrwissenschaftliche Institut für Werk- und Betriebsstoffe der Bundeswehr (WIWeB) and that research and development efforts on the new patterns began as far back as 2012.

Based on the well-known Flecktarn pattern geometry, the snow camo pattern uses white, grey and dark green colors; whereas the multi-terrain pattern uses light green, dark green, brown, beige, grey and off-white colors.
