Delta ComPac Jacket is Newest Release from UF PRO; Highly Compressible Winter Thermal Insulation Jacket

Friday, September 24th, 2021

TRZIN, SLOVENIA (23 Sept. 2021)—UF PRO today announced it will begin selling a new tactical winter jacket—the Delta ComPac—on 7 Oct., just a few months before the freezing weather begins sweeping down.

A key feature of the Delta ComPac jacket is its ability to easily fold into its own pocket so that when stowed in a backpack it consumes little space. This makes it convenient to stow the jacket everywhere so that it’s always at the ready. Beyond its small form-factor, the lightweight jacket is also noteworthy for its ability to keep wearers comfortably warm in bitter-cold conditions.

The jacket is constructed with a water-repellent, wind-resistant face fabric and is lined with high-performance G-LOFT® thermal-insulation filling. Incorporated with the jacket’s design is UF PRO’s unique Hood/Harness system. The system lets the jacket’s hood precisely follow side-to-side rotations of the head, for an unimpeded view of their surroundings. The problem with conventional hoods is they block wearers’ line of sight by continuing to face forward when the head is turned, UF PRO said.

The Delta ComPac features insulated pockets for the hands and a pen-holding pocket secured with hook-and-loop fastener fabric—these are in addition to the large inner pocket for stowing the folded jacket.

Another Delta ComPac attribute is the jacket’s waist adjusters. These optimise comfort as well as styling by permitting wearers to define how tightly or loosely the new outerwear conforms to their body shape.

The Delta ComPac tactical winter jacket—available in Black or Brown-Grey—is priced at 189€.

Thursday, September 23rd, 2021

GORE-TEX Stretch Fabric

Altama Apex Boots with GORE-TEX THERMIUM™ Insulation

The updated FREE EWOL GORE-TEX PYRAD® Ensemble
Elkton, MD, (September 2021) – W. L. Gore & Associates will be highlighting new product concepts intended to protect and support the Armed Forces in extreme and unpredictable situations. Products using GORE-TEX Stretch Fabric, GORE-TEX PYRAD® Fabric, and GORE-TEX THERMIUM™ Insulation will be on display at the GORE-TEX Professional booth #2617 during AUSA October 11 – 13, 2021 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. During the three-day meeting & exposition, GORE-TEX Products will be highlighting Garments, Footwear, and Gloves designed with these technologies in addition to other protective technologies including GORE® CHEMPAK® fabrics.

GORE-TEX Stretch combines the highest level of protection with optimized comfort to deliver protection in the most demanding environments. Building on the recognized performances of durable waterproof, windproof, and breathability, GORE-TEX stretch fabric technology offers the additional benefits; reduced thermal burden, high agility and mobility, and improved equipment integration. This is achieved through an adaptive fit that reduces air gaps and leads to a more optimized design with less bulk. The fabric also delivers high flexibility in cold climates, and noise reduction. The stretch ePTFE membrane technology enables the design and construction of garments to have a more tailored fit, which improves the garments evaporative resistance and increases breathability by 25%.

Garments designed with GORE-TEX PYRAD® technology provide heat, flame, and flash-fire protection for defense personnel. To highlight this technology at AUSA, the updated Flame-Resistant Environmental Ensemble (FREE) EWOL jacket and trouser will be on display. This updated version will be leveraging GORE-TEX PYRAD® technology. This versatile technology offers the durable waterproof, windproof, and breathable protection you would expect of GORE-TEX products and provides some of the lightest weight, low bulk, flame-retardant garments on the market.

Building on Gore’s history of leveraging technology and science to improve comfort and functionality, GORE-TEX PYRAD® Fabric advances performance while maintaining protection. Products made with GORE-TEX PYRAD® Technology are breathable, lightweight, and flexible, and offer improved comfort during the most demanding tasks. The fabrics also pick up less water and dry faster than alternative flame-retardant fabrics.

Leveraging silica aerogel – the world’s best solid insulator – GORE-TEX THERMIUM™ insulation can provide unparalleled warmth without adding bulk. GORE-TEX THERMIUM™ Insulation can be strategically integrated into areas where it’s needed the most. Gore will feature the technology at AUSA in both Gloves and Footwear. A fully insulated boot from Belleville along with the uniquely designed APEX boot from ALTAMA will be on display. The ALTAMA APEX boot will showcase our most breathable GORE-TEX laminate with strategically placed THERMIUM™ insulation. Combined with new soling technology from Michelin, the ALTAMA APEX boot will provide a more versatile combat boot offering performance within a wider temperature range.

W. L. Gore & Associates is a global materials science company dedicated to transforming industries and improving lives. Since 1958, Gore has solved complex technical challenges in demanding environments, from outer space to the world’s highest peaks to the inner workings of the human body. With more than 10,500 Associates and strong, team-oriented culture, Gore generates annual revenues of $3.7 billion.


DSEi 21 – Platatac Tactical Trauma Shears

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2021

Platatac had a lot going on in their small kiosk within the Edgar Brothers stand. You could consider Platatac a one-stop tactical shop in their own right, but Edgar Brothers is the conduit for this Australian into UK government sales.

One of those many items is the Platatac Tactical Trauma Shears, shown above next a PMAG for scale. They’re a bit shorter? than standard trauma shears.

Made from Stainless Steel, these shears feature a serrated lower cutting edge, subdued coloring and a P.P. Plastic handle (for the Autoclave 143 Degree C requirement).

Finally, the price is great at A$15.
