opening2

Nuremberg, 05.03.2016. UF PRO revealed 7 new products at the annual IWA exhibition in Nuremberg. If you didn’t have the opportunity to visit their “jungle” booth in hall 9, here is some news straight from the UF PRO booth.

“Tough gear for rough weather.“ That’s the mantra for the new generation of Monsoon rain jackets, which were designed to offer extreme reliability and functionality during extreme weather conditions.

Monsoon

“Does 100g lighter gear compensate for less reliability and functionality? We don’t think so. That is why, during the design process of our new Monsoon jackets we focused on guaranteeing superb waterproof reliability, comfort and functionality, rather then saving grams and thus not including crucial functional elements, like the air/pac inserts or our Hood/Harness system“ said head of product development at UF PRO, Armin Wagner.

UF PRO is going to add 3 new jackets to their Monsoon rain gear; the more civilian styled Monsoon jacket, the heavy duty Monsoon XT jacket and the lightweight Monsoon Rain Shirt, which has been designed to be worn underneath a plate carrier.

“Our specialty has always been the designing of waterproof gear and with the new generation of Monsoon jackets, I really think that we are bringing a game changer to the waterproof garment market“ added Armin.

UF PRO also introduced their updated Striker XT combat pants and shirt, which should be available by the end of May. One of the biggest updates with the new generation of Striker XT pants is that the camouflage version is going to have the stretch panels also in camouflage. This was until now only the case with the Striker HT pants in MultiCam, where UF PRO combined the MultiCam NyCo fabric with the Schoeller-dynamic stretch material in SloCam.

Smock

A complete novelty to the UF PRO product range is the new addition to their Striker combat range- the new Stealth Smock.

“We wanted to design a smock, which would allow you to stow everything you need for a 24 -36 hour mission in it, without the need to carry an additional backpack or a chest rig. It was of course clear from the start that the problem isn’t going to be how to design a jacket with large pockets, but how to make sure the jacket stays comfortable to wear, even loaded with all that gear. That’s why we integrated a special air permeable load-bearing system into the jacket, which fixes the pockets onto your hip and thus helps to distribute the weight evenly.“ Armin reflected on the design process of the new Smock, which is going to be available in Flecktarn, MultiCam, PenCott GreenZone and RAL 7013 Brown-Grey.

UF PRO also introduced their new summer products, consisting out of the P-40 Shorts and the P-40 Shirt.

The shorts offer the known pocket configuration from the P-40 All-Terrain pants. The knee can be adjusted in length and can either cover the knee or stay above it.

The P-40 Shirt has integrated breathable mesh material in areas of high perspiration, air/pac inserts in the shoulder area and a high collar for extra sun protection and protection against abrasion in case of wearing a rifle sling.
