Newest Generation of Combat and Field Apparel
Crye Precision, one of the leading suppliers of uniforms and personal equipment to the military, law enforcement and public safety markets, features several new products at their booth (#1742) during the 2018 Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC), in Tampa, FL, this week. Items on display include the next generation in their Combat and Field Apparel line, G4, which was introduced at 2018 SHOT Show.
G4, Crye’s next generation of Combat Apparel, features the stretch VTX Ripstop fabric, constructed with Invista’s T420 high-tenacity nylon fibre, allowing the uniform to be light yet strong. The integrated stretch allows for a slimmer cut with maximum mobility. Pockets are low profile and engineered to reduce bulk while still allowing room for all essential gear. Mesh venting is incorporated throughout the garments for maximum air-flow and breathability.
The G4 Combat Shirt, features a set-in shoulder pocket with internal expansion, set-in loop with a low profile pen pocket. With VELCRO tab closures at the cuff, a longer shaped hem in the back and a flatlock seam at both the front and back of the side panels. Enhanced fit and function are the top priorities. Underarm panels are shaped for enhanced mobility, sleeves are darted for an ergonomic fit, and the internal elbow pad pocket is minimal and lightweight.
The G4 Combat Pant features multiple pass-throughs to the low-profile cargo pocket to secure charges. The adjustable padded waist features a low-profile die cut VELCRO adjust tab, and is lined with moisture wicking material. Front thigh pockets are larger, mesh lined and have a secure zip closure. A dedicated knife holder is included with a reinforced opening. The G4 Field Uniform also features VTX Ripstop fabric. The integrated stretch allows for a slimmer cut while maintaining maximum mobility – even under body armor.
The G4 Field Shirt, like the Combat Shirt, was created with maximum comfort and functionality as priority. Designed as a tailored utility shirt, the chest pockets are noticeably sleek, with flaps engineered to be tucked in for ease of access, along with zippered shoulder pockets that reduce bulk while still allowing room for all essential gear.
The G4 Field Pants were also constructed with Invista’s T420 high tenacity nylon fibre, to be light yet strong. Like the Combat Pants, pockets are carefully located and intentionally engineered to reduce excess material and weight. There’s an adjustable waistband and mesh venting throughout the pant for maximum air-flow and breathability, providing the maximum comfort even under the most stressful situations.
Both the G4 Combat and Field Uniforms are available in a brand new innovative FR Fabric, called High Strength Commando Twill, providing lightweight FR protection with a high strength-to-weight ratio. The unique TWILLSTOP construction is made with inherently FR fibers, and has high tear and tensile strength tested in both wet and dry environments. The fabric quickly self-extinguishes and maintains 8.5 times higher air permeability and faster dry time than 50/50 NYCO, according to the company. The Coolderm moisture management technology wicks sweat away from skin, and the overall construction is lightweight with an ultra comfortable feel.
Another new addition is the innovative AIRLITE SPC (Structural Plate Carrier), which incorporates the lightweight mobility of the favorite JPC and the structural support of the AVS & CPC. This minimal armour vest is designed for maximum mobility, weight savings and packability. The vest is designed to provide a variety of configuration options to suit an operator’s needs in protection, modularity and comfort. The vest features the AIRLITE STRUCTURAL CUMMERBUND system with an Integrated Attachment System that allows pouches to be mounted internally and externally. The cummerbund can be used with Structural Kinetic Support System (StKSS), allowing for the wearer to relieve the load bearing on the shoulders, without compromising additional weight and bulk, and while improving comfort and ventilation.
Crye Precision also highlights:
The AIRLITE SLC BELT, which provides comfortable support with a streamlined fit while reducing weight using the patented AIRLITE system for mounting pouches. Side flaps with snaps allow for quick and easy attachment and removal of drop holster systems. Inside reinforced pockets allow the belt to integrate seamlessly with StKSS.
The AIRLITE SLC BLAST BELT provides level IIIA ballistic protection in a low profile package allowing for a streamlined fit while reducing weight. It uses the patented AIRLITE material for mounting pouches. Side flaps with snaps allows for quick and easy attachment and removal of drop holster systems.
