UF PRO to Unveil Breakthrough Invisible Cloaking Pattern

Monday, April 1st, 2019

Invisible Camo Flatlay

TRZIN, SLOVENIA (1 April 2019)— UF PRO® today announced it has discovered the Holy Grail of camouflage, a pattern impossible to see even when standing within arm’s length of the wearer.

The maker of advanced-technology tactical jackets, shirts, pants, hats, caps, and accessories said it plans to show off this camouflage at a private unveiling ceremony set at an undisclosed location. The company added that defence ministers and top military commanders from around the world are expected to attend for a first-hand look.

“There’s never been anything like this fully invisible camouflage because, to the human eye, there’s not anything there at all,” said a beaming Armin Wagner, head of UF PRO® product development.

“At UF PRO® we always strive to challenge the status quo,” he continued. “That’s why we decided to develop full-invisibility camouflage—and in so doing take our European and worldwide reputation as a best-in-class camouflage resource to a unique, new level. Specifically, a UF PRO® level.”

Wagner hailed the new product as a “masterpiece of invisibility.” He said the technical craftsmanship involved in its creation was unprecedented among makers of combat uniforms.

UF PRO to Spotlight Super-Effective Camo Patterns, Next-Gen BDU, Cool New Colour at 2019 Enforce Tac and IWA

Monday, March 4th, 2019

TRZIN, SLOVENIA (4th March 2019) — UF PRO® today announced plans to exhibit its newest military-focused product lineup at both the Enforce Tac and IWA Outdoor Classics trade shows in Germany during the month of March.

Spotlighted at both events will be an innovative camouflage pattern that sows confusion in the subconscious mind by wildly scrambling the brain’s ability to correctly interpret what the eyes see, said the maker of advanced-technology jackets, shirts, pants, hats, caps, and accessories for military and law-enforcement units.

Prym1 Striker BDU

UF PRO® said it also will premier at the two shows a next-generation combat uniform. The new BDU is part of the company’s popular Striker range of tactical wear. It offers a super-rugged design, reconfigurable special pockets, and exceptionally easy field-repair capability, the company reported.

Additionally, UF PRO® indicated it intends to introduce the Hunter Gen.2 FZ Jacket, an upgraded version of its acclaimed light-shelled Hunter FZ jacket for damp and cold spring days. The Hunter Gen.2 FZ Jacket features reinforced sides, extra Velcro® covers on the upper arms, an improved hem design, the company said.

Steel Grey Striker BDU

Further, UF PRO® promised to trot out Steel Grey, a new colour option for a select range of the company’s garments.

Phantom LEAF Striker BDU

Meanwhile, attendees of Enforce Tac will get a glimpse of what a BDU from UF PRO®’s current catalogue looks like when decked out in the highly flexible PHANTOMLEAF camouflage pattern. PHANTOMLEAF is an algorithmically designed, auto-adaptive camouflage pattern that can be modularly combined to produce a total camouflage system suited to virtually any environment or condition. The company cautioned that only government organizations can purchase this pattern, available on demand, from UF PRO®.

Another camouflage pattern set for viewing is PRYM1, which will only be shown to UF PRO® booth visitors at IWA. The company said it will demonstrate using a currently available UF PRO® BDU how PRYM1’s tiny, differently shaped dots of various pure colours fragment visible light to create a blending effect similar to that which enables wildlife predators—leopards, for example—to go totally unnoticed by their quarry.

CONCAMO Striker BDU

The camouflage pattern UF PRO® will exhibit at both Enforce Tac and IWA is called CONCAMO. Developed in Germany, CONCAMO is short for “confusion camouflage”—a name that reflects the pattern’s ability to trick observers at the subconscious level, said Armin Wagner, head of product development for UF PRO®.

“The pattern features eight colours blended through various elements and shadings to produce more than 60 layers of perceivable depth,” Wagner explained. “We’re very excited to be able to offer CONCAMO. It’s an incredibly effective concealment system that works beautifully in a spectrum of environments—forests, grasslands, deserts, snow country, even urban areas.”

Wagner indicated that the Striker Combat Uniform in CONCAMO can already be acquired on the company’s website and selected UF PRO distribution partners.

The Enforce Tac show is set for 6-7 March at the exhibition centre in Nuremberg.

The UF PRO® booth will be located in hall 12 at booth 418.

“Enforce Tac is where police, security officials, and members of the military from across Europe and beyond gather to see what’s new and exciting in the way of products and ideas to help them do their jobs more successfully and safely,” said Wagner. “This is an event we are extremely pleased to be part of and we look forward to meeting lots of old friends there as well as making many new ones.”

The IWA Outdoor Classics show follows right on the heels of Enforce Tac. IWA starts 8 March and continues for the next three days. It, too, takes place at the Nuremberg exhibition centre.

The UF PRO® booth will be located in hall 9, stand 301.

“IWA is a major trade fair where vendors display products for hunting, sport shooting, self-defense, camping, and other outdoor recreational activities,” Wagner said. “This event attracts civilians, but it also typically draws huge crowds of military and law-enforcement personnel. We’re honored to be exhibiting there again this year.”

UF PRO – Delta AcE Plus Gen.2 Jacket

New UF PRO® Delta AcE Plus Gen.2 Tactical Jacket Offers Enhanced Protection from Cold Weather

The Delta AcE Plus Gen.2 Tactical Jacket from UF PRO® is set to debut. The jacket’s design and materials provide extra warmth in extreme cold weather without overheating the wearer or causing loss of focus.

TRZIN, SLOVENIA (2 October 2018)—Soon to be available from UF PRO® is the long-awaited Delta AcE Plus Gen.2 Tactical Jacket, which the maker of innovative clothing for military and law enforcement personnel said today will prove ideal for wear while engaging in heavy physical activities at or below freezing temperatures.

“Extreme cold weather has always been a challenge to work in because it shifts your focus away from whatever vital tasks you’re doing and puts it instead on just trying to stay warm,” said UF PRO® head of product development Armin Wagner.

“Our new Delta AcE Plus Gen.2 Tactical Jacket solves this problem by providing the extra warmth you need in order to stay focused on the mission,” Wagner said. “And, the jacket does this without causing you to become overheated.”

Wagner predicted purchasers will discover so much to like about the UF PRO® Delta AcE Plus Gen.2 that they will make it their go-to tactical jacket.

Weighing less than a single kilogram, the new version of the jacket builds on the high-performance characteristics of the original UF PRO® Delta AcE upper-body outerwear, Wagner disclosed.

“Its face material is still 100-percent windproof and water-repellent, and we continue to use the special lightweight thermal-insulation lining that works even when wet,” he said. “But now, this tactical jacket is more of a workhorse than ever—and it’s as much at home in the cold as it is in dust and dirt,” he said.

One of the key improvements of the UF PRO® Delta AcE Plus Gen.2 Tactical Jacket is better moisture management. The sleeves, for example, are lined with merino wool—a fiber acclaimed for its exceptional comfort and moisture wicking properties.

“These sleeve liners absorb body moisture and transport it outside the jacket extremely fast,” Wagner explained.

Also big: the UF PRO® Delta AcE Plus Gen.2 Tactical Jacket features detachable air/pac® inserts in the shoulder and upper back.

“The air/pac® inserts create an 8mm-thick air barrier between wearer and outer fabric,” Wagner noted. “This traps hot air, providing needed heat and super-rapid drying.”

Another major improvement is the abrasion-resistance capabilities of the sleeves and side-stretch panels.

“We reinforced the elbows with CORDURA®, which is just about the toughest and longest-lasting synthetic fabric available,” Wagner said. “And we also added ultra-strong nylon mesh to the side-stretch panels. The result is a tactical jacket that holds up exceptionally well, even under the load of a heavy plate-carrier and backpack.”

Responding to user wishes, UF PRO® designed the Delta AcE Plus Gen.2 Tactical Jacket to include an adjustable collar. Said Wagner, “You can regulate the amount of protection your neck gets while you’re being blasted by icy wind. This feature is meant to let you stay comfortable at all times and in all conditions.”

Yet another enhancement is the addition of a strap to make it easier to open the jacket’s zippered upper-sleeve pocket.

“If you don’t have a free hand to work the zipper, you can just grab the strap with your teeth and pull on it by tilting your head—the zipper will slide right open,” Wagner said.

Topping it all off, the UF PRO® Delta AcE Plus Gen.2 Tactical Jacket now comes with wrist warmers that have openings sized to let the face of a wristwatch peek through.

“Keeping an eye on the time is essential in almost every type of situation, and the way we’ve designed the wrist warmers allows you to easily do just that,” said Wagner. “No need to fumble around with the sleeves to get a look at your watch. You simply glance down and there’s the time.”

The UF PRO® Delta AcE Plus Gen.2 Tactical Jacket soon will be available at the company’s online shop and at its distribution partners, according to Wagner.

He added that subscribers of the UF PRO® newsletter can look forward to being the first to receive word of the exact date of initial availability.

After facing three gruelling rounds of closely-contested ‘camo clash matches’, Prym1 Camo, a new breed of non-directional hybrid camouflage, comes of age defeating the more established patterns of MultiCam (USA), PenCott™ Greenzone (UK), Flecktarn (GER) and Vegetato (ITA) to be crowned the most popular camouflage pattern of UF PRO®’s 100,000-strong social media fan base.

The Prym1® patterns are a range of camouflage colourways for multiple environments, that have been professionally designed with the idea of allowing you to move through various terrains by utilizing the depth, colours, shadows, highlights and organic shapes found on predators in the wild. The Prym1® tactical camo patterns have been developed for personnel that want to be concealed and blend into their surroundings at all times, whether on the move or from a hide site.

What does this mean for Prym1 Camo?

Obviously backed by an army of passionate supporters who are demanding a sense of change from the more established, traditional camouflage patterns in the tactical world, the new-age Prym1 Camo pattern will soon be available as a limited edition piece in UF PRO®’s most popular collection, the Striker BDU.

UF PRO®, developer and producer of high quality high-performance tactical clothing for special police and military units worldwide, welcomes Summer 2018 with its brand-new Striker Gen.2 Boonie Hat, designed to protect you against the sun, allow air circulation and break the silhouette and camouflage you with the surroundings.

The new Striker Gen.2 Boonie Hat holds up well to abuse, packs easily and gives great 360-degree sun protection. Made of a lightweight, yet durable 35% Polyester, 65% Cotton Ripstop fabric in Flecktarn; 50% Nylon, 50% Cotton Ripstop in PenCott™ GreenZone and MultiCam®; and 67% Polyester, 33% Cotton Ripstop in Brown Grey, SloCam, it features a Mesh sweatband to create maximum airflow to help you keep a cool head.

To further keep your temperature down as the heat index rises, the UF PRO® Striker Gen.2 Boonie Hat includes two mesh ventilation openings in the front and the back to allow for air circulation. The adjustable chin strap, made of Paracord, provides a secure fit and can be used (the chord goes through the hat’s brim) to adjust the circumference of the hat by the intuitive secure toggle in the back.

UF PRO®’s Striker Gen.2 Boonie Hat features a wide brim that can be moulded so that it fits your head perfectly, allowing you to adjust it as you see fit. The hatband offers two rows of straps with loops for threading pieces of foliage as natural camouflage to further break up the outline of the wearer, helping them blend into their surroundings. These are also constructed of the company’s high-performance Polyester, Cotton Ripstop blend. As there are never enough pockets, UF PRO® integrated an ingenious mesh pocket on the inside of the hat for those very important documents (concealing a thin, flat object like an ID card or plans for your secret mission) and three Velcro pads for attaching ID patches.

The lightweight Striker Gen.2 Boonie Hat is engineered to help you stay cool, comfortable and provides visual concealment, coming in the popular Flecktarn, PenCott™ GreenZone and MultiCam®, and SloCam patterns, as well as in brown grey for those in an urban environment.
