SOFIC – Torraka Snow Camo Cold Weather Clothing System

Thursday, May 26th, 2016

Known in Europe as Taiga, the Swedish brand uses the name Torraka in North America. As you’d imagine, they’ve got some interesting cold weather clothing, although it’s a little different than what we are used to.

Designed for conditions between 5 deg and -45 deg Celsius, the Torraka system starts with fishnet top and boxer base layer as well a level two long underwear.

When you need more insulation, they offer a fleece jacket and knicker length pant which can be donned and doffed even while wearing boots.

This is their cold weather combat uniform which constructed with a Gore-Tex membrane rather than offering an additional Gore-Tex outer layer.

For even colder condistions, they offer a reversible (Torraka Multi Terrain Pattern to Torraka Snow UV Pattern) insulation level which can be quickly dried. You may also notice that the trousers are boot height rather than full length. With the addition of this level, you can go down to -45 Degrees Celsius.

Torraka also offers a variety of head, hand and footwear to help you deal with these extreme conditions.  The loft insulation throughout was referred to as Thermalight.

SixKa Brand By 707 Tactical Gear Now Featuring PenCott Camo Clothing And Boots

Wednesday, May 11th, 2016

Although fabrics in the PenCott family of advanced camouflage patterns have been printed in the USA since July 2011, finished products in the patterns have been harder to obtain in the Americas than they have in Europe – especially garments.


That situation has begun to noticeably improve this year, and there is also now a US-based company making a wide range of tactical clothing and boots in PenCott camouflage patterns. That company is 707 Tactical Gear out of Miami, Florida with their SixKa brand of tactical garments and gear. 707 Tactical Gear designs products specifically to their clients requests and cuts-and-sews them from U.S.-made milspec materials in their wholly owned factories in Mexico.

Speed-Tac 9 PENCOTT

707 Tactical Gear provided the first sneak-peak look at SixKa products in PenCott patterns at the SHOT Show. Now they are going into full production with a range of tactical garments and boots in the PenCott GreenZone and BadLands camo patterns.

All PenCott camouflage fabrics are made and printed in the USA to US Army Milspec standards and include robust, comfortable and highly fade resistant, vat-dyed, Cordura brand Nylon-Cotton ripstop and ultra-strong, abrasion resistant, acid-dyed Cordura brand nylon.


Products that are now in production, and available to order in PenCott camo patterns, include the following:

  • Eon 6k Combat Pants
  • Eon 6k Combat Shirt
  • 707 Camo BDU Pants
  • Advanced Tactical Shirt
  • Speed-Tac 9 Boot
  • D-Force Boot
  • 707 Tactical Gear will be displaying an even wider range of their SixKa brand products at the NTOA Conference and Exhibition at the end of August, and this will include additional products, such as:

  • SixKa Combat Pant
  • Classic Gear Shirt
  • TESTAC Multicap
  • Kourass Vest Carrier
  • Nomad Chest Rig
  • Recon Fanny Pouch
  • You can view full product details, download a PDF catalog, or place an order at

    The PenCott family of camouflage patterns was developed by Dom Hyde of Hyde Definition Ltd. in response to the US Army’s Camouflage Improvement Initiative. The patterns have since gone on to achieve considerable commercial success and have also been in use with many of the western world’s top military and law enforcement special operations forces. PenCott camouflage fabrics and trims are stocked and distributed globally by MMI Textiles in Westlake, Ohio.

    Warrior West – Canadian Urban Environment Type III

    Monday, May 9th, 2016

    Here you can see Hyperstealth’s Guy Cramer wearing their Urban Environment Type III developed for a Canadian requirement which originated in 2009 by the Department of National Defence, Defence Research and Development Canada – Suffield, (DRDC-S) in Alberta to develop a Canadian Urban Environment Pattern (CUEPAT) based on the unique requirements of Canada’s three major metropolitan areas, Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal. CUEPAT was intended for use on CBRNE suits.

    Back in 2012, we showed you their developmental Types I & II.


    Both are seen here along with arid coloration samples (CUEPAT 2 is left, CUEPAT 1 is right). While Types I amd II were meant for use in highly urbanized areas, the Type III at the top is tuned for use in the suburbs where concrete transitions to greenway.
