Enforce Tac 2015: Arc'teryx Premiers New Kit

At Enforce Tac 2015, Arc'teryx is presenting new equipment - backpack, uniform and glove.
Building on the heritage of the original Khard pack 30 and 45, the larger volume Khard 60 remains lightweight and durable, with sufficient load capacity for reconnaisance tasks with a concealed carbine carry option.

The Recce Shirt has buttons under cover – the buttons were a requirement of some SOF units, that helped develop the uniform. As colours are available Ranger Green, Crocodile (another green) and wolf (grey). 

Industry partners have developed custom accessories and pouches to fit the all Velcro lining. Limitless internal configurations make it is adaptable for communication specialists, breachers, snipers and other applications.

Less is more: less visibility, less weight, less restriction. More function, more versatility and more capacity. The Khard 60 is  hybrid Assault/Patrol Pack capable of carrying a carbine in a concealed manner. A clamshell opening facilitates easy access into the compartment that is configurated for the aftermarket modular pouches, and also incorporates a drop down extension in order to accommodate carbines with longer upper receivers.

Two large volume side pockets open wide for fast entry. Hydration compartment carries either 3L bladder or elongated equipment. The stable suspension system provides molded padding on shoulder straps and waist belt for sustained long-haul comfort.
