DSEi 21 – Taiga

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2021

Know as Taiga in Europe and Torraka in the US, this Swedish clothing company offers some great cold weather options. But one of their newer items at DSEi were these pants designed for Swedish Police.

You’ll notice the Grey color and the fabric is not FR but rather no-melt, no-drip.


DSEi 21 – Molliflex

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2021

Sometimes at a trade show you zig instead of zag? and when I turned left instead of right on my last say at DSEi I ran smack dab into the Intelligent Textiles Limited stand and their Molliflex cables.

The lady in the stand read my badge aloud, “soldier systems” and as she did it I looked at what they were doing and replied?, “you’re right in my wheelhouse.” Turns out, this is the gem I was searching for at DSEi, that one product I didn’t expect to find, but has great potential.

They’ve done such a good job with their Molliflex cable, that you probably didn’t even notice it in the photo at first or maybe even second glance.

The cable is just 2mm thick and can be woven into PALS compatible platforms. Due to how things it is, pouches can be added over Molliflex. Molliflex lays flat even when folded for 90 degree turns. In fact, it can be folded over two million times before the internal connection is broken. Additionally, it is IP68 rated. The connector is a standard Glenair Mighty Mouse which is Nett Warrior compliant.

Attachments to devices include an Ejector QD plug and Hardpoint attachment plate.

It is rated for power at 5amps,<50voltsDC1 and data at USB 2.0, 480 Mbps.

The outer material is DWR coated nylons me available in Multicam, Coyote, Flecktarn, CADPAT, and Black.

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.

DSEi 21 – Brigantes “On The Man”

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2021

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.
