Written by Eugene Nielsen

TRU-SPEC® by Atlanco, one of the leading suppliers of uniforms and personal equipment to the military, law enforcement and public safety markets, has introduced several new products for 2014. These include the new MultiCam® Black pattern, 24/7 Series ECLIPSE Tactical Pant, 24/7 Series Camp Shirt, Weathershield 3-in-1 Element Jacket, and Circadian Backpack.

“At TRU-SPEC, we maintain an innovative and exciting approach to the apparel our first responders wear,” stated TRU-SPEC Vice President of Marketing, Darrell Jacks. “We not only want to offer our tier-one law enforcement units a line of trusted apparel that matches their performance in ensuring our safety, but to support all public safety and law enforcement professionals.”

 

MultiCam Black

First announced in November, the MultiCam® Black pattern was jointly developed by Crye Precision and DURO Industries to project a distinctly authoritative presence appropriate for domestic law enforcement operations. The pattern is designed to complement an officer’s existing equipment, while presenting a sharp, professional image.

MultiCam Black will be available in TRU-SPEC‘s high-tech Tactical Response Uniform (TRU). The TRU is constructed with Cordura NYCO fabric, which provides excellent durability, comfort and no-melt, no-drip thermal performance. MultiCam Black is available exclusively from TRU-SPEC.

 

ECLIPSE Tactical Pant

TRU-SPEC is also introducing the ECLIPSE Tactical Pant to their popular Men’s 24-7 Series. The 24/7 Series ECLIPSE Tactical Pant has all of the features of a traditional tactical pant, but in a casual jean style. It is equipped with eight pockets to carry gear; including deep front pockets with hidden utility pockets inside and spacious side pockets to accommodate accessories. The pant features articulated knees, a gusseted crotch, YKK® brass zipper, brass PRYM stud post button and rivets on front and back of pant.

The 24/7 Series ECLIPSE Tactical Pant is available in two fabrics: a quick-drying, breathable, moisture wicking, 100-percent durable nylon material or a 6.5-ounce 65/35 Teflon®-coated polyester cotton rip-stop. The ECLIPSE Tactical Pant retails for $49. Color options are Black, Khaki and Coyote.

 

24/7 Series Camp Shirt

The new TRU-SPEC 24/7 Series Camp Shirt is all about comfort and performance.  Constructed of durable, lightweight 100-percent polyester, this quick-drying high-performance shirt wicks away moisture. The 24/7 Series Camp Shirt has been designed to help keep you safe and comfortable in a number of ways. The shirt features quick-release front placket snaps that allow for immediate access to concealed weapons.

The Camp Shirt also features underarm and chest mesh vents to keep you cool and comfortable. The shoulder mesh is all one piece, creating a vent on the front and back yoke and forming the chest pocket. The underarm vents are angled to create a larger opening.

The 24/7 Series Camp Shirt features two large chest pockets with hook-n-loop closure and two lower zippered passport pockets for plenty of storage while on the go. The front yoke creates pocket flaps. There is no shoulder seam. The 24/7 Series Camp Shirt is a great shirt for plainclothes duty, training and everyday wear. The 24/7 Series Camp Shirt retails for $47. Color options are Khaki, Charcoal, Coyote and Navy. 

 

Weathershield 3-in-1 Element Jacket

The new Weathershield Element Jacket is another addition to the TRU-SPEC 24-7 Series. This versatile 3-in-1 jacket is equipped with inner and outer layers, which can be worn together or separately. The zip-in Inner Jacket features lightweight, synthetic fleece insulation for warmth and breathability and has 8-inch side zippers and deep front pockets for easy access to gear.

The Outer Jacket features a zip-off, adjustable hood and multiple pockets. It is waterproof, windproof and breathable. It has full-length side zippers for ventilation and weapon access.

The Weathershield Element Jacket has a detachable hood. It also features a back yoke with cape opening that has a detachable identification pane, zipper front closure with stand-up zip-through collar, a locker loop for securing detachable fleece lining, and radio mic loops on both shoulders. The chest pockets have hook & loop detachable ID tab with hidden zipper closure.

Other features include: vertical hidden chest pockets with hidden closure, articulated sleeves, and two signature TRU-SPEC 24-7 Series bellowed and flapped patch pockets with hook & loop closures. The Weathershield Element Jacket retails for $199. Color options are Black or Midnight Navy. 

 

Circadian Backpack

The Circadian Backpack is a brand-new addition to the TRU-SPEC family. Designed for versatility, this new pack expands to hold all of your gear, whether you are on the range or at work. It is an excellent pack for everyday carry.

The Circadian Backpack is equipped with front, rear and side storage pockets and features a full-zip main compartment. The pack is hydration compatible. The pack has exterior Universal straps for attaching optional pouches and padded adjustable, removable shoulder straps.
