Rangers Lead The Way: with OCP

In case you missed it on Friday – the Ranger Regiment has officially become the first US Army unit authorized to wear OCP uniforms in garrison State-side.  Below is a photo of Rangers wearing ACUs in OCP camo on the occasion of the Ranger Regiment’s 30th Anniversary parade on Friday of last week.

But wait there’s more!  Check out this interesting story on Soldier Systems Daily about how the Rangers were able to get enough sets of ACUs in time for the parade….

Direct Action® launched

You might have heard about or seen the first prototypes of the Direct Action® line of professional gear during the IWA trade fair in Nuremberg, Germany in March 2014.  Over the next months, interest in the Direct Action® line grew quickly – especially among special operations forces units.

Building on this interest, and the potential that new technologies offered, Helikon-Tex® quickly turned what had begun as a project into a fully-functioning independent brand with a dedicated team of design and production professionals.  Leveraging the over 30 years of experience of Helikon-Tex®, over the next few months the Direct Action® team established a new R&D, built a strong professional team of designers, prototype makers and production specialists to create a range of products for the Direct Action® brand.

All of the gear they designed, after initial in-house testing, was then fielded to special operations units for end-user trials and evaluations. Their input and suggestions were critical and were incorporated into the final designs at a speed never seen before in the Polish defense industry.
