3 Farben Flecktarn and SloCam are New Camouflage-Pattern Options for UF PRO’s Striker Gen.2 BDUs

Thursday, June 15th, 2017

JUNE 15, 2017 – Cutting-edge maker of tactical clothing UF PRO today announced that it is now offering its popular Striker Gen.2 BDU combat shirts and pants in two additional high-performance, widely acclaimed camouflage patterns – 3 Farben Flecktarn and SloCam.

Tactical operators have long been impressed with the capacity of 3 Farben Flecktarn and SloCam to blur human body contours in temperate-zone woodlands as well as in urban areas brimming with cultivated foliage, but disappointed that neither camouflage pattern was an option for the Striker Gen.2 BDU line, UF PRO said.

According to UF PRO, both 3 Farben Flecktarn is exclusively available at the company’s online store and through UF PRO’s distributor in Germany, TACWRK. SloCam, however, is sold only at the UF PRO online store, the company said.

3 Farben Flecktarn In Use Around the World

“Flecktarn” comes from a mash-up of the German words for “spotted” (fleck) and camouflage (tarnung), UF PRO explained.

Flecktarn is the regulation camouflage pattern worn in all branches of the German military, UF PRO said.

The 3-Farben Flecktarn is the desert version of the 5-Farben Flecktarn used by the Bundeswehr in arid and semi arid regions. The camouflage pattern consists of three colours that replicate those found in arid regions, UF PRO elaborated, adding that the specific colours employed in 3 Farben Flecktarn are green, brown, and black.

SloCam Wearers Difficult to See in Woodlands

SloCam is a camouflage pattern likewise engineered for use in forests and in urban areas where shrubs abound, UF PRO said.

SloCam was designed originally for use by the Slovenian army in response to its changing strategic role as a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, according to UF PRO. The idea was to provide for Slovenia’s troops a camouflage pattern that would permit greater uniformity and cohesion with forces from other NATO nations during joint operations, the company clarified.

More so, the Slovenian army needed camouflage pattern colours that would make detection of the wearer at a distance particularly difficult in heavily vegetated environments. SloCam succeeds in that objective with its light and dark olive greens and five shades of brown-green, the company said.

SloCam has earned accolades from tactical operators outside of Slovenia. For example, a German police special-forces unit selected SloCam as the top-choice pattern for sniper suits, UF Pro recounted.

UF PRO offers the Striker HT Combat Pants and the Striker XT Gen.2 Combat Shirt in 3-Farben Flecktarn. SloCam is available in the Striker XT Gen.2 Combat Pants and Combat Shirt.

Frost Grey is initially available in the Striker XT Gen.2 battle dress uniform.

• P-40 All-Terrain Pants

UF PRO Readies for Rollout of Frost Grey: New Colour Promises Superior Urban Damp-Down

Saturday, June 3rd, 2017

UF PRO, maker of innovative tactical clothing, today said it expects to roll out its much-anticipated urban shade Frost Grey by the end of May.

The new colour is engineered to make a wearer standing, crouching, or laying prone in proximity to buildings and infrastructure harder to spot than if he or she were clad in traditional black.

Frost Grey initially will be available only for the company’s Striker XT Gen.2 battle dress uniforms, according to Armin Wagner, head of product development at UF PRO. Later in 2017, Frost Grey will become a colour option for other top-rated UF PRO combat uniform products, including:

• P-40 All-Terrain Pants
• Hunter FZ Jacket
• Delta OL 3.0 Cold Weather Jacket
• Delta AcE Sweater

Frost Grey BDUs exhibited at UF PRO’s IWA OutdoorClassics trade fair booth earlier this year in Nuremberg, Germany, generated considerable excitement among the approximately 49,000 attendees, particularly those who work in law enforcement, Wagner reported.

“Wearing Frost Grey won’t turn you invisible, but it will definitely make you much harder to spot in an urban jungle,” he said. “We designed Frost Grey to allow the wearer to hide better, vanish faster, and more effortlessly blend in with immediate surroundings.”

MINIMIZES VISUAL SIGNATURES

Wagner explained that the ability to blend in is especially important for tactical clothing wearers engaged in surveillance activities.

“The better you blend in, the safer you are as you go about observing and documenting,” he said. “Colour is a very important part of this. We believe that Frost Grey is the colour that works best if the goal is to make you indistinguishable from the surrounding environment and what you’re surrounded by is an urban environment.”

Frost Grey – lighter than other shades of grey currently on the market – was engineered to minimize the visual signatures a person produces amidst a backdrop of granite-faced or

concrete buildings, Wagner said. He added that smaller signatures reduce the possibility of detection by suspects or hostiles whether nearby or at a distance.

Grey generally has in recent years emerged as a dominant color among producers of tactical equipment and clothing, Wagner indicated.

“Makers and users alike have more and more been aligning with the idea dating back to World War II that grey can damp down better than black in low-light conditions,” he said. “It’s why we say grey is the new black. Our Frost Grey is solid proof that it is.”

Sneak Peek – UF PRO’s Delta OL 3.0 Suit

Thursday, December 1st, 2016


Wearing comfortable clothing is essential when you want to stay focused, especially when operating outdoors in winter conditions with a full load-out, and the Delta OL 3.0 Jacket and Pant have been designed specifically with this in mind.

During activities in cold weather, the Delta OL 3.0 jacket will keep you protected against all kinds of cold weather hazards, offer you the necessary durability and most importantly, give you the comfort you need to focus on your tasking.

The Delta OL 3.0 jacket is due to its face material windproof and water-repellent. This means that the 2-layer ripstop laminate will stop wind-chill and also keep you dry during heavy snowfall and light drizzle.

A combination of G-Loft and WINDSTOPPER® means the Delta OL 3.0 uses the perfect technologies to protect you. The exceptional G-Loft thermal insulation created out of different hollow polyester fibres a 3D structure which can retain the maximum amount of dry air. This creates a warming thermal insulating layer between you and the cold environment. And the fibres keep their structure also when wet. Due to the so called “memory effect“, they always return to the original form, even after multiple washes and hard usage.


To keep your core warm and to give you extra movability in the arms area the jacket has two grades of thermal insulation. In the torso area it is lined with a 145 g/m² and in the sleeves with a 110 g/m² G-Loft insulation. Areas which are more prone to abrasion, like the elbows and the lower back area, are additionally reinforced with a 500 Denier Cordura® fabric.

The jacket offers in total 8 pockets, which allow you to stash most of the stuff you need within hands reach. Smaller gear can be stowed away in one of the 4 sleeve pockets. For bulkier gear you can use either one of the big front pockets or the two inner pockets. Due to the Delta OL 3.0 jacket’s anatomic cut, the jacket allows you freedom of movement, but at the same time it is tight enough so you can wear additional gear, like plate carriers or chest rigs over it.


The complementary Delta OL 3.0 pants are one of the very few thermal insulation pants on the market which offer a non-baggy cut, allowing you amazing movability and without compromise on thermal protection. Due to the special Flex/Zone construction and an integrated bi-elastic stretch part in the upper front and back, UF PRO can create anatomic fitted pants which follow all your moves and don’t compromise on thermal insulation protection.

The Delta OL 3.0 pants are thanks to their face fabric windproof and water-repellent. This means that the 2-layer ripstop laminate will stop wind-chill and also keep you dry during heavy snowfall and light drizzle. Just like the jacket they make use of G- Loft insulation and WINDSTOPPER® fabric to give optimal performance.

The pants are feature an adjustable waist, long YKK® water repellent side zips, belt loops and detachable suspenders; they also benefit from two fleece lined front pockets with YKK® water repellent zips, adjustable lower legs with boot hook, and Cordura® reinforcements in the knee and instep area.

If you need to be operating at the highest level in the worst winter conditions then the Delta OL 3.0 Jacket and Pant are the very tools for the job.
