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.

Basically, the upper arm pockets on the ACU jacket (or ‘coat’ as I believe it is called in the official terminology) will be changed to the same style as those of the Army Combat Shirt.
