HyperStealth to Introduce INVISIB – Commercial Variant of Quantum Stealth

Friday, April 11th, 2014

HyperStealth announced on their Facebook page earlier today that they would release a commercial version of their long promised Quantum Stealth. I for one am looking forward to the release simply so I can finally speak openly about the technology.


With authorization from the U.S. Military last week, Hyperstealth INVISIB will be the first commercial variant of Quantum Stealth (Light Bending Material). A confidential version with a higher capability will be available for Law Enforcement/Military Regular Forces and a highly advanced classified version will be available for Tier 1 and Tier 2 Special Forces Teams in Canada and the U.S. only.

Hyperstealth is now in the process of establishing the Intellectual Property (IP) for INVISIB, and only after the IP is secured will the product be demonstrated to the public.

Hyperstealth was not allowed to pursue the IP prior to this recent authorization as Canada does not allow patents to be taken out on classified technology and while the U.S. does allow patents on classified technology, it would have to be stamped secret and would not allow Hyperstealth to secure worldwide protection.

Platatac H Smock Available in Limited Edition Colors

Thursday, April 3rd, 2014


Platatac’s new H Smock is made from 50/50 NyCo ripstop fabric. It features a wealth of storage space: 4 throated cargo pockets with taped buttons, 2 zippered map/document pockets on chest, 3 internal poachers pockets at the rear, and 2 bicep mesh bottomed pockets with internal zippered ID/Notebook space.

The hood is adjustable with retention strap and shaping wire trim.

The waist and hem feature draw cords for sizing retention. The garment is loose cut, for freedom of movement in arms and torso, ensuring ventilation and room for extreme cold weather equipment to be worn underneath. The cuffs feature a double elastic throat to stop wind.

All major seam lines are double stitched and feature Bar tacking for increased durability. The elbow pads feature a reinforced double layer. The H Smock also utilizes YYK zippers and ITW Nexus hardware.

For a limited time, the H Smock will be available in AOR1 (I believe this is seconds fabric, because the material is controlled). Also available in A-TACS AU and FG.
