UF PRO® at IWA 2013

Slovenian company Uni&Forma was founded in 1997 with the mission of making high performance garment systems for professional users.  Under the brand name of UF PRO®, their garment systems are today worn by various military and law enforcement special operations units – both in Slovenia and abroad.

The UF PRO range is known for innovative design and industry-leading materials, high quality and reliability, comfort and durability – and all at an affordable price.  UF PRO only works with proven, leading-edge solution partners, and all of their products are thoroughly tested and evaluated on their performance for their intended use before they’re brought to market.

UF PRO showcased a wide range of their garment systems at the IWA this year including their P-40 Commando Pants and the new Striker Battledress System.

P-40 Camo Pants

The P-40 is a new breed of tactical pant that features an ergonomic cut for a performance fit, panels of robust stretch fabric for extreme mobility, and a detachable WINDSTOPPER® lining for year-round comfort.  They’ve quickly acquired the nick-name of “kick ass pants” because of the imagery used in their promotional campaign.

IWA 2013 Round-up

Hyde Definition Ltd. exhibited for the first time at the Internationale Waffen Ausstellung & Outdoor Classics 2013 trade fair (more commonly known as simply “IWA 2013” or “Eevah” as they call it in Germany).

The show ran from 8-11 March and was held in Nuremberg, Germany.  By any measure, we had a great time at the show, made some great new friends and laid the foundations for some great business over the next months.  We will take an in-depth look separately at each of our partner’s offerings at the show, but first we present some highlights below.
