Some Cool New Patches from Platatac

Tuesday, July 8th, 2014


I gotta say, I’m a big fan of these two new limited edition patches from Australia’s Platatac.


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.

DSEi – Platatac

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013

Almost in stealth mode, we ran across this excellent bush hat from Platatac while visiting the Edgar Brothers booth. Dubbed the Grouse Bush Hat – Recon (Grouse is Australian for awesome) it’s part of a complete ensemble that includes a short and trousers.


And while it’s packed full of features like diagonal vents with mesh backing, a short brim and rear adjustment, that’s not the real story. This hat is 100% cotton ripstop in MultiCam. Platatac worked with Duro to produce this fabric based on the material used in the old jungle fatigues. That means cottony comfort gents.


That’s a good looking hat.

Arc'teryx LEAF Talos LT Halfshell

We recently recommended the Arc’teryx LEAF Talos LT Halfshell and we just got these photos from Haley Strategic Partners that give you some good all around shots of the Talos LT to help you get a better feel for it. As it turns out there are a whole lot of other great products in these photos like carbines from Bravo Company USA featuring parts from B5 Systems as well as armor carriers and pouches from Mayflower Research and Consulting along with holsters from G-Code. You may also notice a lot of Kryptek camouflage in these photos including some cool custom combat pants from Australia’s Platatac, not to mention some interesting gloves from Outdoor Research.
