Spiritus Systems Introduces NIR-Neutral Black Laminate Tegris to Designs

Thursday, January 26th, 2023

Spiritus Systems has released this statement regarding their use of Tegris material.

Our product refinement process never dies. This week we are phasing in updates to a few of our products that use Milliken Thermoplastic Composite Tegris. This ballistic material is used as a semi-rigid framework for a lot of our load-bearing components. It’s the hard carbon fiber-esque material on products like the Thing 2 and MOLLE Back Panel. It’s bomb-proof, light, and easy to maintain.

Until now, we used two color variations (coyote laminate and raw uncoated). Moving forward we’re going to be implementing a NIR-neutral black laminate to replace the raw, uncoated, color variant. This new laminate coating is the first of its kind and was developed in partnership with our supplier. It gets rid of the exposed silver weave and has a NIR signature profile that won’t give you away under NODs.

Spiritus Systems products are always under the microscope, no matter how established they are. We’re constantly poking, prodding, testing, and scrutinizing materials and design choices to find incremental improvements. Over time, these really add up, and it’s a big reason why so many of our systems are the go-to option for people who depend on the gear.
