DSEi 21 – Brigantes “On The Man”

This wedge at the front of the Brigantes booth demonstrated a breadth of soldier systems capabilities offers by Brigantes and was used extensively to walk DSEi visitors through a variety of options.

Manikins were set up for Mountain & Arctic Warfare as well as Jungle and Temeprate zones.

The fabrics are from Milliken and include Milliken TactX Stretch fabric in Multicam which is a durable base fabric for performance finishes and Milliken’s best-in-class printing and shade matching.

 It is a lightweight 98% plain weave nylon with 2% spandex with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. The elasticity of the fabric allows the wearer freedom of movement and gives more allowance in the action areas of the garment. The nylon face fabric offers great durability to the wearer who would be very often carrying and equipped with a heavy back pack and/or body armor plus the wearer will probably be carrying a weapon utilizing a harness/strap.

Additionally, it is highly breathable whilst at the same time providing a degree of weather protection. The garment can be used as part of a layering system or can be used as a stand-alone depending on the weather conditions. It’s a very tactile fabric and extremely pleasing and comfortable to wear.
