SOFIC 22 – Forgeline Solutions

Friday, May 20th, 2022

In the SOFIC SELECT pavilion Forgeline Solutions offered us a sneak peek of their FR 3-season uniform.

It features the same cut of their 3-season uniform but in a new FR performance fabric. Forgeline envisions that it will run about the same price as their NYCO uniform and will include combat pant, combat shirt and field shirt. They can keep costs low because the uniform was designed from the outset for manufacturability, costing less to make.

If you feel clammy in a NYCO uniform that’s because the fabric is 3 CFM, meaning a very low breathability. This fabric offers 70 CFM, being much more breathable.

Note: the color of the photo is due to the lighting in the room.

Next Generation of UF PRO’s Top-Performing, High-Comfort Combat Shirt and Pants Available for Purchase Soon

Thursday, May 19th, 2022

TRZIN, SLOVENIA (19 May 2022)—Tactical garment innovator UF PRO today announced they will soon start selling Striker XT Gen.3 Combat Shirt and Striker XT Gen.3 Combat Pants for military and law-enforcement personnel.

The much-anticipated combat shirt and combat pants embody next-generation advances in tactical garment performance and comfort. UF PRO said its Striker XT Gen.3 garments were developed in response to the increasingly demanding requirements of today’s armed forces and police units.

“As the name indicates, the Striker XT Gen.3 Combat Pants and Striker XT Gen.3 Combat Shirt are third-generation products with a proud heritage,” a UF PRO executive explained. “They each build on the strengths of our successful Striker XT Gen.2 line, which has become synonymous with rugged performance and remarkable comfort.

“What we have achieved with the Gen.3 line is a continuation of the excellence at the heart of all our work here at UF PRO.”

Per UF PRO, key features of the Striker XT Gen.3 Combat Shirt include:

Critical-area mesh ventilation for extreme breathability

Fast-drying torso material for greater comfort

Breathable, air-permeable padding around the hips

air/pac® shoulder inserts for efficient weight distribution of heavy backpacks and plate carriers

Extra-long front zipper

Enhanced softness inside the collar

Slide-in pockets to accommodate protective UF PRO Elbow Pads

Large upper-arm pockets

Velcro® fastener-secured patches and pen pocket

Long zipper with soft padding

“Torso material clings to the wearer’s body for a perfect fit, and rapidly absorbs and dries sweat,” the company said. “3D mesh in the armpits and in the inside of the elbow joints helps wearers cool down to maintain optimal core body temperature. Breathable, air-permeable padding in the area of the pelvic crest prevents hip discomfort when carrying heavy loads, and a reinforced lower neck prevents the shirt from sliding around beneath those loads.”

UF PRO added that its signature air/pac® inserts prevent the occurrence of thermal bridging and help evenly distribute the weight of fully loaded plate carriers and heavy backpacks.

The Striker XT Gen.3 Combat Shirt will be offered in a selection of colours. They are MultiCam®, Brown Grey, Black, Steel Grey, and Navy Blue.

Meanwhile, key features of the Striker XT Gen.3 Combat Pants were described by UF PRO as follows:

Waist/Flex System for ensuring continuously optimal fit as the wearer’s body changes shape throughout the day

Interchangeable belt buckle

Extra Velcro® fasteners inside the belt loops

Dual points of access to a ventilated large side-pocket

Double knife-pocket with detachable retention strap

Five-level vertical adjustment system at the knees

Opening along the bottom of the knees for easy insertion of a protective UF PRO Solid Pad

Adjustable lower-leg width

Expanded use of schoeller®-dynamic stretch material for greater freedom of movement

WINDSTOPPER® liner compatibility

Boot hooks

Striker XT Gen.3 Combat Pants will come in these colours: Flecktarn, SloCam, Brown Grey, Black, Steel Grey, and Navy Blue.

“The Striker XT Gen.3 Combat Pants and Striker XT Gen.3 Combat Shirt product development team pushed things to the limit in order to endow these garments with highest-level performance capabilities,” UF PRO said. “We can very confidently say that our team succeeded in that regard.”
