The UF PRO® Striker Stealth Smock merges the features of a combat jacket and a load bearing vest in a very unique way.»more info
This product has integrated 3-D spacers, which prevent thermal bridges and distribute weight.
An innovative hood technology, which allows perfect vision and almost unlimited comfort, while wearing a hood.
What is the UF PRO® Hood/Harness?
The UF PRO® Hood/Harness is a new development, featuring a technology that comfortably connects the hood with your head. This is the only hood on the market that enables you perfect vision, unlimited mobility and comfort in foul weather conditions. The length and height of the Hood/Harness can be adjusted with an integrated head band and if wearing a helmet, the UF PRO® Hood/Harness can be easily detached.
Why did we develop the UF PRO® Hood/Harness?
Conventional hoods have to be either uncomfortably strapped around ones´ head or they limit the vision. So it is to choose the lesser evil: Either loosing ventilation and wear comfort while strapping a noisy hood firmly around your head, or run the risk to look inside the inner part of your hood, whenever you turn your head.
How does the UF PRO® Hood/Harness work?
The Hood/Harness is integrated into the hood and connects it through a head band with the wearers head. It is either detachable or can be incorporated into the hoods´ lining.
Combining different face fabrics with complementary characteristics in order to optimize the garments properties.
Why do we use UF PRO® Hybrid/Design?
Usually garments are made of one certain type of face material, which defines the textile characteristics of the garment. To our mind this does not satisfy the performance requirements, as it usually offers just a compromise. Often the technical performance of just one material does not thoroughly fulfil all the complex functional and physiological requirements, of the human body in motion.
Therefore we have switched from the single outer fabric design to a more sophisticated technology that we call Hybrid/Design. This design technology uses the material properties of different and complementary materials in different areas of the garment, as it is required by the expected end use during which it is worn.
How does Hybrid/Design work?
The basic principle for UF PRO® Hybrid/Design is that the functional and physiological requirements of the expected end use, define also the characteristics of the materials of choice.
In areas for example, where elasticity is required, we use stretch materials usually coming from the Swiss premium manufacturer Schoeller®. In areas which require a rather solid platform for pockets and protectors, we choose solid materials without stretch. In areas, which require the best possible breathability, we use light and highly air permeable materials. Wherever durability is paramount we use highly abrasion resistant fabrics.

Our goal with the new Striker Stealth Smock was to design a combat jacket that doesn’t only allow you to stow away a huge capacity of gear, but also to make it extremely comfortable to wear when it is fully loaded.
That meant we had to reinvent the concept of how a smock is designed and built.
The result of it is not only a new smock. With a modular pocket configuration that can hold up to 15 kg of gear, an integrated load-bearing system which distributes and fixes the weight on the hips and tons of other features it sets the mark for a new generation of combat smocks.

SUFFICIENT STORAGE FOR ALL YOUR ESSENTIALS.
The cool thing about the Stealth Smock pocket configuration is that it is completely modular. The integrated front MOLLE system allows you to either attach your own or our UF PRO® Stealth pouches. And with the additional chest pockets, huge lower back pocket and arm pockets you’ll probably stow away so much gear that you might even consider leaving your backpack at home.
THE STRIKER STEALTH POCKET CONFIGURATION.
SPECIAL CLOSER SYSTEM.
With a Canadian button and a bungee elastic, you can easily and quietly open or close the UF PRO® Stealth pouches.
MOLLE CHANGING CAPABILITIES.
You can adjust the pocket configuration as you see fit, with a MOLLE system attached to the jacket's hip area.
ADJUSTING THE VOLUME.
You can adjust the volume of the pouches as well as the big lower back pocket, depending on how much gear you carry.
THE BREATHABLE LOAD BEARING SYSTEM.
The Stealth Smock can be loaded with as much as 12 - 15 kg of gear. In order to stay agile with a fully loaded jacket, we had to rethink the whole concept of a smock design. A substantial part of the new Stealth Smock is the breathable load-bearing system, which consists out of two modules: a waist belt which not only carries the weight but also fixes it onto the hip area, and a huge area of air/pac® inserts in the upper torso and back area which carries the remaining weight.
FIRE AND FORGET ELBOW PROTECTION.
Why do we call our protection “Fire and forget“? Because you simply insert the pads and since they are extremely lightweight and flexible you’ll soon forget that you are wearing them. But when you’ll need them, they will be in place offering you reliable protection.
