Brigantes Presents – High Angled Solutions – Hilleberg Keron 4Gt

Wednesday, November 7th, 2018

The Hilleberg Keron (“grouse” in Sami ) 4 GT has been at the top of the list for explorers and arctic adventurers for many years. Its durability, stability, simplicity and roomy interior that made it popular in the civilian world are the same properties that make perfect for the military user. Being able to increase strength by using threading two 10mm poles into each pole sleeve, mean it can deal with the worst weather and wind.

The sand, nearer a coyote or tan, colour option means the tent can be easily used in a variety of environments. For the Arctic, the tent can be used in conjunction with the size specific multi-spectral camouflage nets from Saab Barracuda. The combination of the strong tent and the advanced, lightweight camouflage net combine to provide the military user with a reliable, concealed shelter, in the most challenging environments.

Brigantes Presents – High Angled Solutions – Exped 9xp Sleeping Mat

Wednesday, October 31st, 2018

Sleeping mats have moved a long way from the closed cell foam mats that are still in use in some units. Whilst light and cheap, they take up space and don’t insulate the individual, allowing the cold to penetrate up through the ground and chill the user. The initial response to being colder than expected, is upgrade to warmer, bulkier sleeping bags. This often doesn’t give the expected results, as the insulation under the user is compressed and doesn’t insulate as efficiently.

The answer is to move to a more advanced sleeping mat. Enter the Downmat XP 9, the revolutionary DownMat for extreme temperatures!

The Downmat XP 9 is exceedingly comfortable, extremely warm and packable! This enables the user to carry a smaller, lighter bag. Sleep warm and comfortable, recover and be ready for what lies ahead.
