Arktis Ltd launches new website

Established in 1985, Arktis Ltd. is one of the Founding Fathers of the revolution in soldiers’ equipment that has been going on for the past 25+ years.  But, whilst Arktis have always been known for great products, they’ve never had a great web presence.  Well, that changed today – with the launch of their all-new website!


The new website is easy and intuitive to navigate through, offering several different ways in fact to quickly and easily get to the section or product that you’re interested in, and it also features great hi-quality product imagery throughout.  The one thing that I find a bit a bit surprising / confusing is that they now list everything by its model number rather than its name – its only when you click on the item that you discover, for example, that “A110” is the “Hot Climate Shirt”.

SEALS Action Gear trials PenCott™

SEALS Action Gear of Canada is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year – and its no wonder they’ve been in business so long, besides stocking products from leading brands they also make great products under their own label.  Case in point – their “4.3 Tactical Field Pants” and “4.0 Combat Anorak” in PenCott-GreenZone™ seen below (BadLands and SnowDrift are under evaluation as well).

4.3 Tactical Field Pants – The 4.3 Tactical Field Pants feature SEALS unique waist adjustment system using a patented velcro waist band, large belt loops, a heavy duty nylon zipper in the fly, two large thigh pockets, two slant front pockets, two rear pockets and two calf pockets provide for plenty of load carrying capacity.  ‘Double’ pocket flaps cover the buttons on the thigh and calf pockets.

The anorak is generously sized to allow an insulated liner to be worn underneath and features a high collar combined with a generous drawstring hood. Drawstrings at both the waist and bottom hem round off the design.

Stronghold Group introduces T.I. ZERO-PALS Chest Rig

Following the very well-received launch of their innovative T.I. (Tactical Insert) magazine pouch design, Poland’s Stronghold Group have now launched their laser-cut Tactical Insert ZERO-PALS Chest Rig.

Made from double-layered 500D or 1000D Cordura fabric, the ZERO-PALS Chest Rig features laser-cut slots rather than PALS webbing for securing pouches to the rig.  Consequently, the ZERO-PALS Chest Rig is both lightweight and durable, fully compatible with standard MOLLE pouches and fittings, and is adjustable to fit sizes Small to Extra-Large.


The ZERO-PALS rig features 14 attachment slots on the front panel and 6 on the back panel, a Velcro strip on the front for a nametape, and loops on the shoulder straps for antenna, cable and/or tube management.
