UF PRO® P-40 Camou Pants reviewed by SPARTAN.AT

Our friends at the SPARTAN.AT blog recently reviewed the UF PRO® P-40 Camou Pants.  Here we present an English language translation of that article.


If you go into the forest and almost lose your pants, it’s probably because they’re in PenCott camouflage.

At any rate we were glad that we did find our pants again, because they were the outstanding P-40 Camou pants from Slovenian manufacturer UF PRO.

In addition to their commercial products, UF PRO also produces uniforms for the Slovenian Army, Prison Services and Customs Department.  At the IWA 2013, these guys from the southern edge of the Alps showed a bunch of new gear that thrilled all visitors their stand – and not only because of the outstanding camouflage effect of the PenCott series of patterns, but also because of the cutting edge materials and features UF PRO packs into their products. Plenty of reasons then for SPARTAN.AT to take a close look at these new pants from the house of UF PRO.

Atalanta Modular Armor Carrier in PenCott-BadLands™

Here’s a look at another innovative gear solution – this time courtesy of our friends at Predator Armament.

We first had Ares Armor develop the Combat XII-MEC Pack with Hyde Definition’s PenCott Multi-environment Camouflage Patterns and have now carried this over to more of their products including the Atalanta Modular Armor Carrier seen here in the BadLands transitional variant.

This version of the Atalanta Modular Armor Carrier includes all of the same features as the original including 1000 Denier Cordura Nylon with the PenCott BadLands Pattern and matching Quiet Loop at the front and rear for identification and to secure waistband.

The Atalanta Armor Carrier is designed as a concealed armor carrier and can take on full combat loads in addition to Soft Armor or SAPI Plates. Spacer mesh is integrated for a comfortable wear and easily takes on the Combat XII Pack for a lightweight load carry.


UW Gear Minuteman chest-rig in PenCott-GreenZone™ – with matching webbing

The picture tells the story…

UW Gear AR Minuteman Chest Rig

According to John Ammons of UW Gear, the pull tabs on the mag pouch flaps were deliberately made from solid color Coyote Brown webbing.  The reason for that was because, “The printed webbing matches the material and blends with it so well, it really makes the tabs hard to see if you had to look down for them in a hurry.”

Silent Heroes Foundation Specialized Interdiction Unit selects BadLands™ camouflage – Marsh Mokhtari and Mykel Hawke supporting TV documentary

The Silent Heroes Foundation is committed to support efforts to improve both animal and human health in Africa, as well as to aid in the protection and conservation of its wildlife and endangered species.

Poaching of Africa’s wildlife, particulary of its vulnerable and endangered species such as elephant and rhino, is currently at crisis level.  Illegal trade in wildlife products such as ivory and rhino horn is coordinated by well-organized crime syndicates which transport the horns primarily to Viet Nam and China, in order to fuel the demand for the use of horn as a medicinal treatment, a status symbol for the growing middle class, or a hangover cure.

Compounding the problem is the fact that most park rangers and wildlife reserve security teams are neither properly trained nor equipped to combat this war on Africa’s wildlife.

To deal with this dual challenge, the Silent Heroes Foundation is forming an elite, professional Specialized Interdiction Unit that can be deployed on an as-needed and fast-reaction basis throughout South Africa, in an effort to increase overall security, and to help decrease the rate of poaching deaths in the country.  The Specialized Interdiction Unit will be led by Anton du Plessis, Founder of the South African Tactical Association.  Anton has a 20 year background in the South African military, law enforcement and security sectors, and has trained a variety of specialized units over the years.
