Another great European brand we had a chance to chat with at DSEI was Austria-based Carinthia. They manufacture a range of sleeping bags, shelters and environmental clothing systems. Several of their items are used by European SOF units and they often create special make up variants of their products such as those shown below.
This is a Gore-Tex shell that has been adopted by a European SOF organization. It’s a modified version of the Carinthia Tactical Rain Garment which includes Trousers. It utilizes a Topaz ePTFE membrane with a polyamide shell.
That same unit also issues this jacket was an insulated garment. It’s a variant of Carinthia’s Extreme Cold Insulation Jacket and includes Trousers. It uses G-loft ISO+ polyester insulation with a polyamide shell featuring a GORE Windstopper membrane.
