Arc’teryx Gear Protects Norwegian SF During SAR

Photo – Norrbotten Polis

There was a horrible plane crash during the NATO winter exercise earlier this year in Norway. A C-130 Hercules crashed into the highest mountain in Sweden in really bad weather conditions. Norwegian Special Forces, who are equipped with Arc’teryx clothing, assisted with the multi-day Search and Rescue effort. In the photo above you can see these troops wearing the Alpha Jacket and Pants.

    I think this article is a bit insensitive.
    It’s pretty recent, and no-one came out alive, and I don’t think the kit of the searchparty should matter in a case like this. :-l

      No disrespect meant to the fallen. If you went to the link you would see the article which criticizes Swedish forces for not being equipped for the mission. I didn’t want to beat them over the head with it.
