FibroTex & Tactical Trim Team Up To Offer Operational Camouflage Workshop

Monday, March 14th, 2016


Earlier this month, during Enforce Tac, I met with German company Tactical Trim and one of the brands they represent, Israeli firm FibroTex. In addition to walking me through some of their multi-spectral camouflage solutions, they mentioned that they were hosting an Operational Camouflage Workshop in Germany this Spring in Winterberg and would be interested in attendees from qualified military/police organizations.


Attendees will get hands-on experience with items like the Nightwalker suit.

If you’re interested in attending (and yes, all attendees will be vetted) contact

Dutch SF Wearing Fibrotex Fightex Uniforms for Mali Deployment

Friday, March 11th, 2016

During Enforce Tac we shared a few photos of signature management products by Fibrotex. The uniform used in conjunction with the ghillie suit is an FR garment issued to Dutch SF in their new digital pattern.

Offered in the Netherlands by Profile Equipment, these garments are intended for wear in hot weather and the proprietary fabric is treated with Permethrin as well as being FR.


The ripstop weave fabric is a blend of four different fibers. Additionally, stress points and slotted buttons are bartacked and they’ve incorporated wide belt loops for duty belts as well as height adjustable kneepads in addition to easily removable labels and washing instructions to prevent irritation.

IWA – Kryptek Altitude Pattern

Sunday, March 6th, 2016

Kryptek is displaying garments in their new Altitude pattern.

Your prey takes form as a mist shrouded shape on a distant ridge. Above the tree line where the air is thin and cover is sparse, you need a camouflage that allows you to close the gap and retake the high ground.

One way to spot fakes is to look for the pattern’s name embedded in officially licensed Kryptek garments. If it’s not there, it’s not real.

Enforce Tac – Tactical Trim / FibroTex

Thursday, March 3rd, 2016


Tactical Trim is a Berlin company and is displaying their wares in another Berliner’s booth, TAC WRX. Tactical Trim represents the Israeli company FibroTex and their camouflage capabilities are some of the most exciting things I’ve seen at Enforce Tac. Above on the left is the Nightwalker suit which is a lightweight (550g) overgarment that can quickly be donned to provide IR suppression in the 3,000Nm-5,000Nm and 8,000Nm-12,000Nm ranges. It’s also breathable. Below, you can see the face veil made from the same material. To help protect the eyes from detection through the slits, they recommend wearing eye pro.


Offering full spectrum camouflage, FibroTex is vertically integrated. They not only mill their own fabric, but print it as well as manufacturing finished soft goods under the Fightex line which include such items as reversible uniforms.


They offer dual-sided printed fabrics as seen here in this hooped sniper’s hide bivy. Not only will they print different visual patterns but they’ll also use their library of patterns and reflectivity data to offer the correct level of reflectivity in the IR and UV spectrums as well. And that capability may differ per side. Everything they do is bespoke.


They are also displaying a FibroTex Ghillie suit.  The uniform is FR and in the new Dutch pattern.

Canadian Researcher Richard Webster Works On Disruptive Camouflage

Friday, February 26th, 2016

According to Exchange Magazine, an Ontario, Canada-based publication, Carleton University researcher Richard Webster has been researching Disruptive Camouflage, including how the wings of a moth are disrupted to conceal their overall shape. The intent of this research is to prove his thesis that disruptive camouflage is more effective in overall survival rate than background matching. Webster’s research led to an invitation to speak to the Canadian Department of National Defence’s Soldier Systems Unit.
