Kryptek Knee Pad

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

As Kryptek works on their new tactical line, they’ve introduced some new technologies from several materials suppliers. For example, this bi-component kneepad which was developed under a cooperation between Vibram and D3O. Vibram is now working as D3O’s Berry partner to manufacture their shock absorbing foams here in the US.

Here, you can see how the Vibram kneecap is applied to the trouser. The D3O pad is placed in a pocket in the knee of the trouser.

Here is the reverse of the two knee pad components.


The Cat’s Out Of The Bag On The Kryptek Plate Carrier

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

At the recent Enforce Tac show in Nürnberg, Germany, I had the opportunity to check out Kryptek’s new tactical line of clothing and equipment which was on display in Precision Tecnhnic Defense’s stand. One of the items is a new lightweight plate carrier which joins the line of PALS compatible pouches they released earlier this year. As it was a prototype, they were not yet ready for me to share it with the world. However, German blog Strategie Technik shared a photo of the carrier.

It is extremely lightweight with integrated Admin Pouch at the upper chest along with three magazine pouches.  However, they mentioned that the integrated Admin Pouch would be removed to make way for PALS compatibility in that space. You may also spy Tubes connectors on this carrier which have been licensed from FirstSpear.  You’ll also notice a radio pouch attached to the cummerbund. My favorite feature is the rigid opening on the ammo pouches which make it much easier to replace magazines one-handed.

Monday, January 23rd, 2017

Kryptek had quite a few new items for 2017 but by the time I was able to check them out, they had already shipped the tactical clothing home. However, I did see this Fleece Anorak and I love anoraks. Insulated with PrimaLoft, it’s water and wind proof and incorporates a chest mounted hand warmer pocket along with drawstring waist and hem.  Looking forward to picking one up.

Kryptek Outdoor Group Announces Final Judgement In Copyright, Patent, and Trademark Infringement Case Against Salt Armour, Inc., Alpha Defense, Inc. And Thomas J. De Sernia.

Thursday, May 5th, 2016

Defendants found guilty of willful infringement

BEAUMONT, TX, May 4, 2016. Kryptek Outdoor Group, LLC, a cutting-edge camouflage and apparel solutions company founded by U.S. Army veterans, today announced that the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas has rendered a Final Judgment and Permanent Injunction against Defendants Salt Armour, Inc., Alpha Defense, Inc. and Thomas J. DeSernia for infringement of Kryptek’s intellectual property, resolving a lawsuit filed by Kryptek on September 9, 2015.

Kryptek filed the lawsuit after Defendants ignored Kryptek’s multiple requests to cease and desist brazenly creating, offering for sale, and selling counterfeit copies of Kryptek’s camouflage patterns and products in an attempt to capitalize on the uniqueness and popularity the Kryptek patterns. Kryptek developed and released its innovative patterns and products in connection with the U.S. Army Camouflage Improvement Effort begun in 2011. Defendants further falsely claimed on their websites that the counterfeited patterns were their exclusive creations and tried to conceal their true origin by renaming them.

The Court’s Final Judgment and Permanent Injunction of March 29, 2016 found that Defendants had infringed on Kryptek’s copyrighted and patented camouflage patterns and willfully infringed on Kryptek’s trademarks, and ordered Defendants to pay One Million, Seventy-Five Thousand Dollars ($1,075,000.00) as damages for the infringement, plus attorneys’ fees and costs of court. The Court also permanently enjoined Defendants from further infringing activities.

“Blatant attempts to misappropriate and capitalize on others’ innovative creations do not garner a lot of respect in my book,” said Butch Whiting, CEO/Co-founder of Kryptek. “We are pleased that the Court put a stop to this and is holding the Defendants accountable for their actions. We also hope this judgment sends a clear signal of our intentions to vigorously defend against further theft of our creations moving forward, both domestically and abroad.”

The case is Kryptek Outdoor Group, LLC v. Salt Armour, Inc., Alpha Defense, Inc., and Thomas J. De Sernia, case number 1:15-cv-00348-RC, in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Beaumont Division. Kryptek is represented by Stewart Mesher and Darlene Ghavimi of Conley Rose P.C.


IWA – Kryptek Altitude Pattern

Sunday, March 6th, 2016

Kryptek is displaying garments in their new Altitude pattern.

Your prey takes form as a mist shrouded shape on a distant ridge. Above the tree line where the air is thin and cover is sparse, you need a camouflage that allows you to close the gap and retake the high ground.

One way to spot fakes is to look for the pattern’s name embedded in officially licensed Kryptek garments. If it’s not there, it’s not real.
