Rampart Range Day – Serket

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015

Serket’s new Extreme Cold Weather Hinge Balaclava has been tested in Alaska by the U.S. Army where it offered protection down to -40 deg F. While it isn’t a membrane fabric it does offer excellent wind resistance (4.5 cfm) on par with membrane fabrics.  

The material has a fleece on the inside for comfort and is water resistance. The real innovation is the stiffenes in the external shroud that not only directs the exhale down and away from goggles but also keeps exhaled air from flowing upward and fogging eye wear. The balaclava is not FR but Serket is investigating appropriate materials pending a requirement from the field.

MDM – Serket

Thursday, September 26th, 2013

Serket showed us their new Integrated Knee Pad developed in conjunction with Unequal Technologies. Serket relies smart engineering and solid partnerships with others industry to offer a better mousetrap but you may not have heard of Unequal Technologies. Their mission is to develop products to protect the human body from pain and injury by offering unique impact attenuation technologies originally developed to offer high-impact protection for those in the military. Interestingly, they were quickly adapted for innumerable sports applications. Today, you’re just as likely to find Unequal Technologies on a Soldier in theater as you are on an NFL quarterback.

Serket and Unequal joined forces to offer a state-of-the-art 3-Layer composite technology. The Serket-Unequal Integrated Knee Pad (IKP) system offers up improved comfort and performance over existing knee/extremity systems – including ballistic protection – an important feature that is missing from commercially available systems currently on the market. Additionally, that same Kevlar insert also resists punctures. Despite these advantages, the Serket-Unequal IKP is about the price as existing systems.

You can see the Kevlar layers embedded in this cross section of the IKP.

Serket-Unequal IKP spec details:
• Integrated ballistics available in two systems:
o 2 grain – 1,000 feet per second frag protection
o 17 grain – 1,150 feet per second frag protection
• Puncture resistance at least four-times higher than existing commercially available systems – including hard shell systems
• State-of-the-art plastomer material is comfortable, soft and pliable in a variety of temperatures, so it easily bends with the wearer’s knee
• Impact protection minimization of energy severity index and G force vs exiting commercially available systems
• Flame resistant
• Anti-microbial and anti-fungal
• One piece closed cell construction won’t absorb water/perspiration – avoiding weight gain and induction of bacterial/fungi
• Cost: comparable to other existing commercially available systems

The Serket-Unequal IKP will work in conjunction with traditional IKP-ready combat pants, and this fall, Serket will introduce its own combat pant that not only works with the IKP, but can be used with existing pants.

The Serket-Unequal IKP is available now as a COTS solution.

“Serket set out to find the best wool sock in the outdoor industry and all roads led straight to Point6,”said Serket President, Trey Harris. “Point6 founder Peter Duke is one of the originators of the high-performance, high-quality Merino wool sock. This partnership allows Serket to bring the best the outdoor industry has to offer to the men and women of the armed forces.”

The Serket line of socks use the highest quality Merino wool fibers combined with state-of-the-art spinning and knitting techniques to create exceptionally soft Merino products. A high-tech spinning process allows for implementation of more Merino fibers per inch, creating remarkably soft wool that is never scratchy, itchy or bulky and more resistant to pilling and wear than traditional wool. I’ve been wearing the two models shown in the photos for the past few weeks and they are great. Granted, I’m quite familiar with the Point6 brand, and won’t hesitate to recommend them. My experience with Point6 is that they are heardwearing yet very comfortable.
