    During IWA I met the guys from the Austrian gear blog, SPARTANAT. They mentioned that they had been conducting interviews with various European gear manufacturers. They thought SSD readers might be interested and I agreed. Please let us know what you think.

    GEAR Made in Europe: VERDANDE.EU

    SPARTANAT: Verdande is a small gear manufacturer from Denmmark. What do you specialize in?
    Verdande: Verdande specializes in designing and producing custom products for Military, Police and EMS persons/units. We are starting slowly to design standard products, in preparation to sell to international dealers, but most work we do is still custom based.

    SPARTANAT: How long have you manufactured gear?
    Verdande: As a company we started aprox 2014. But the footwork started around 2006 when we was in the Danish infantry and had reached a point when the gear we needed to get the job done, either was very bad or did not excist. So started to learn how to sew on a old Pfaff 230 sewingmachine. And then learning everything by ourself and slowly getting better and better machines to make the gear.

    SPARTANAT: You have a significant feeling for design. Where does this come from?
    Verdande: It is a mix of our personal experience from deployments to KFOR, Iraq, ISAF and seeing the different needs to different missions ranging from a Police mission to combat. Trying on your own body to walk with gear that you could easily remove 40% of the weight if it was made in a different way.

    But it is also a mix of our customers idea when they come with an idea that will make their job easier so they can focus on keeping themself and their collegues alive.

    SPARTANAT: Anything you want to tell costumers?
    Verdande: Our design goal is to make products that are lightweight, because the heavier your gear is the less ammo you can bring to the fight. Our products is also lowprofile because its hard to attack through small compound doors if your kit is to bulky. And we try to make things to the highest level of quality as possible because people lifes depend on it. In the Danish infantry we are being trained to be transparent and tell new soldiers from your own mistakes and experinences to make each other better. This is something we have also taking with us into our company and we know there is a lot of new gearmakers around Europe and while other companies might not be willing to share information how to do things then you are always velcome to ask us a question. We see a lot of european gearmakers that are still on a hobby based platform but have potential to something bigger. We are just a message away :-)

    SOLSYS: Why Verdande?
    Verdande: The name Verdande was chosen because we wanted something from the Norse mythology because this is a part of our country’s history and we chose the Norse name Verdande and our logo is the tree Yggdrasil.

    Interview by

    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.

    Congrats To Guy Cramer, CEO Of HyperStealth Biotechnology Corp

    Monday, May 2nd, 2016

    Wealth and Finance International magazine (with a global audience of 130,000 subscribers) just awarded Guy Cramer of Hyperstealth Biotechnology Corp. “CEO of the Year in Canada for 2016”!
