UF PRO’s Successful Online Shop Joined by Walk-in Store Where Customers Can Now “Try Before Buying,” Says Company

Friday, June 30th, 2017

The brand new retail outlet is now open for business in the heart of Trzin, Slovenia. UF PRO has designed it as a showcase for popular lines of cutting-edge tactical clothing and as preview house for innovative products working their way through the development pipeline.

TRZIN, SLOVENIA (JUNE 29, 2017) – It used to be that shoppers’ only option for procuring merchandise direct from innovative tactical clothing maker UF PRO was to go online and “buy before trying”, but as of now they can also “try before buying” thanks to the company’s decision to open a walk-in retail store in the heart of Trzin, Slovenia, UF PRO today announced.

The 140-square-meter retail space serves as a showcase of UF PRO’s most in-demand tactical clothing lines. On the ground floor, shoppers can browse the full collections of Striker Combat gear, Monsoon Waterproof garments, Delta Cold Weather gear and more, according to the company.

One floor up, displays of the company’s newest offerings await. Among them are the newly introduced Frost Grey range, Striker XT BDU in SloCam, and 3-Farben Flecktarn, UF PRO said.

Adds Exciting Dimension to UF PRO “The physical store will add an exciting dimension to the UF PRO shopping experience,” added Nejc Zavrl, who heads the company’s marketing department.

“We’ve been very successfully offering our products through our web shop and through our partners all over the world for the past several years, so creating a walk-in environment where clients could experience UF PRO gear up close and personal like this was the next logical step for us,” Zavrl explained.

The sleek, upscale, high-energy interior of the store is brightly lit and, on its main wall, features a map of the world with the names of various nations’ special-forces units stretched into the shape of each continent, Zavrl indicated.

“It took us a considerable investment of time and effort to pull together the concepts for this store, but we believe we now have a physical site worthy of the name UF PRO – a place where people can fully took us a considerable investment of time and effort to pull together the concepts for this store, but experience the vibe of UF PRO,” said Zavrl.

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.

UF PRO – Frost Grey Now Available

Friday, June 9th, 2017

UF pro unveiled their new Urban Grey color at IWA. It is engineered to make a wearer standing, crouching, or laying prone in proximity to buildings and infrastructure harder to spot than if clad in traditional black.

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.

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

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

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.”
