REVISION MILITARY SNOWHAWK™ GOGGLE SYSTEM

Cold climate operations have become an essential tactical focus for militaries around the world, with many dedicating more resources to training in the Arctic and other cold weather regions. This shift has generated a growing demand for gear that can withstand harsh conditions and function in extreme environments.

To that end, Revision Military developed the SnowHawk™ Cold Weather Goggle System in collaboration with Anon Optics, a leader in goggle design for snow sports and a brand owned by Burton Snowboards, the world’s leading snowboard company. The SnowHawk™ is the first-ever fully integrated ballistic goggle and balaclava system offering complete face coverage, superior anti-fog performance, and ballistic protection.

Extensive time, attention, and resources were dedicated to ensure breathability as well as warmth and anti-fogging:

  • Mesh over the mouth and nose directs breath away from the goggle; the dual-pane thermal gasket lens creates an insulated barrier; built-in top and lateral forced-air vents provide constant airflow; and, Revision’s leading OcuMax© Plus coating is applied on the inside of the lens to prevent fogging, plus a hard-coat is on the outside of the lens to resist scratching.
  • The SnowHawk system’s balaclava design utilizes Anon’s Magnetic Facemask Integration (MFI®) technology to seamlessly integrate the goggle and balaclava, ensuring stabilization and seal, with no skin exposed. The system achieves total face and head coverage, but is also intuitively designed for ease of use and swift removal when necessary.

Revision unveiled the SnowHawk™ at SOFIC 2016 and will also be showing the system at the Defence Vehicle Dynamics (DVD) trade show in the UK in September and at AUSA in Washington, D.C. in October.  The demonstrator model is shown in our SnowDrift® camo pattern as market-tester and capability demonstration.

‘Infection’ trousers from ZombieHunter.eu

Something new, and quite a bit different from the usual…

Is it fashion, is it tactical? Is it something in between – like, um, ‘fashtical‘? However you want to describe it, ZombieHunter.eu is a new brand out of Slovakia that is leveraging their team’s combined experience in selling tactical and sportwear clothes to produce tactical fashion for women.

This young company has high ambitions and fresh ideas and the ‘Infection’ pants are their first product.  The ‘Infection’ pants feature many practical, tactical design features – but in a more female-friendly and fashionable cut. The pants are made with high-quality branded components such as YKK®, Velcro®, and Cordura®, and use genuine, military-grade PenCott® camouflage 50/50 NyCo ripstop fabric as well.

Tactical Tracking Operations School

Tactical Tracking Operations School has been around for over 20 years – for many years, they were the only company in the US that delivered specialised tracking courses for law enforcement and military units and personnal.  The company now offers the most complete, experienced, dedicated, professional and effective range of specialized training packages available today.

New Cover

TTOS might well qualify as the longest-running company that you’ve never heard of, and that’s becuase for many years the company deliberately kept a very low public profile.  That is all changing now as the company has just built and released a new website that provides a virtual encyclopedia of information about the company’s background, its subject matter experts, and the wide range of training packages that the company delivers at locations around the world.  Also included on the website are details about the company’s long-running anti-poaching training and support efforts.

img_2455

Finally, if you’re wondering why we’re publishing this update about TTOS on our page, its becuase we are very honored by the fact that the company has been extensively trialling our camouflage patterns on training deployments around the US and the rest of the world and has chosen to adopt PenCott® as the most effective camouflage patterns available today.

12745866_10154487593663238_6724879393803728342_n

As TTOS continues to update their website and Facebook page with more information and photos, you’ll be seeing more and more evidence of PenCott’s effectiveness.

Austrian newspaper gives a rare inside look at ‘Einsatzkommando COBRA’

Yesterday’s online and paper editions of the Austrian newspaper ‘Heute’ (Today) featured an article and photo gallery of the Austrian Interior Ministry’s anti-terrorist / special operations unit ‘Einsatzkommando COBRA’.

In the photos below, we see a two-man sniper team in their standard-issue GreenZonecamouflage smocks and trousers from SABRE in Germany.  COBRA has been using a range of GreenZone™ camouflage clothing and equipment made by SABRE since 2012.

10978586_10153211456115984_4654890507144130955_n10994221_10152849709329340_6525364236386029911_n

Einsatzkommando (EKO) COBRA is a member unit of the ATLAS Network of European police special operations units.  EKO COBRA regularly conducts training exercises together with colleagues from Germany’s GSG9, France’s GIGN and RAID, Britain’s SCO19, and others.  Within 28 member states of the ATLAS Network, EKO COBRA is said to provide the subject matter expertise in the area of raids on buildings.
