Consisting of a parka and over-trousers in snow camouflage, this waterproof and breathable severe weather uniform in GORE-TEX developed by VTN benefits from very good mechanical strength. It is worn over the uniform and equipment to protect the soldier from rain and snow.

Functional, operational and ergonomic, it can be taken off very quickly because of emergency zips. This light, compact uniform packs away into a waterproof bag and weighs less than 1.5 kg.

This uniforme features parka and over-trousers: 100% polyamide and Gore-Tex membrane and under Body-Armour Shirt (UBAS): Pyrad Technology This uniform can be easily obtained in other colours and types of camouflage (infantry, European theatre, etc.).

VTN is also spotlighting its Gore Pyrad shirt, which has been distributed to all instructors at the CNEC (National Commando Training Center). Shirt made of Gore Pyrad fabric, which has been specially developed to wear under a bulletproof vest. It provides optimum comfort to the wearer, thanks to its numerous vents.


- Technology integrated into the fabric which protects against burns while offering
all the advantages of a non-fireproof fabric.

- EN ISO 14116 - Index 3: Flame retardant: there is no flame propagation, the outer
layer carbonises to form a stable barrier that protects the soldier.

- Strength and durability: resists tearing and abrasions; colourfast.

- Comfortable: permeable to air, very light fabric that provides real comfort to the
wearer.

- Printability: can be printed in camouflage prints and with IR performance.

VTN has provided all the instructors at the centre with 22 shirt and trouser outfits free of charge, along with 5 guerilla vests for survival course instructors. This is an opportunity for GORE and VTN to promote these new products and create demand for this equipment from future commandos, since all French commandos go through CNEC to pass their training courses.
