UF PRO, a firm favourite for many of the Airsoft Action crew, have just announced they are using a next-generation MultiCam fabric to produce an upgraded range of high-performance winter tactical garments, what perfect timing!
The garments—forming UF PRO’s new “MultiCam Low-Temperature Line”—go on sale 20 Oct. The line consists of upgraded versions of four existing UF PRO products:
- Delta AcE Plus Gen.2 Winter Tactical Jacket
- Delta OL 3.0 Winter Tactical Jacket
- AcE Winter Combat Shirt
- Hunter FZ Gen.2 Softshell Jacket (available later this year)
Each of the four in its upgraded form is designed for use in conditions from mild to well-below zero degrees Centigrade; additionally, the new MultiCam fabric from which the quartet is constructed promises significant performance advantages, said Armin Wagner, head of UF PRO product development.
“This new MultiCam fabric allows wearers to operate more comfortably and efficiently in extreme cold environments characterized by everything from icy winds to snow or drizzling rain,” Armin has stated.
Among the performance advantages offered by the MultiCam Low-Temperature Line are greater durability and a dramatically lower noise signature.
“The material is a laminate,” he said. “The outer face-fabric is made of texturised, soft-to-the-touch, 100-percent polyamide that overlays a highly breathable inner polyurethane membrane. The outer layer is woven together by a special ripstop technique. Consequently, these garments last longer—they’re just way more durable, as seen in their greater resistance to tearing, peeling, and friction.”
The other major performance edge offered by the MultiCam Low-Temperature Line is its quietness.
“These upgraded garments make very little noise while the wearer is walking or running,” he advised. “Normally, laminate material makes an unmistakable sound that can be easily heard. But this new MultiCam fabric, because of its composition and softness, doesn’t give off that telltale noise. The Delta AcE Plus Gen.2 Winter Tactical Winter Jacket is meant to be worn when you’re going to engage in strenuous activities in very cold conditions,” he said. “To help you feel just the right amount of warmth from the jacket, we’ve put thermal-insulating G-Loft filling in the sleeves and used 37.5™ microfleece as a lining. Meanwhile, the Delta OL 3.0 Tactical Winter Jacket is for anyone who wants the ultimate in cold-weather outerwear. It’s designed for scenarios where you’re going to be stationary for a long time while icy winds relentlessly pummel you with driven rain or snow. We’ve also reinforced the elbows with CORDURA fabric. “Lastly, our AcE Winter Combat Shirt is the one to wear in low, low temperatures. It features all the perks of a combat shirt, but is extremely well suited for low temperatures when you have to carry a plate carrier or a backpack.”
Later this year the company is going to add also the Hunter FZ Gen.2 Softshell Jacket to the MultiCam Low-Temperature Line-up.
