What’s in it for me?
The secret of well-functioning armies is in the details. To meet the high army standards, every element has to be thought through. First of all, soldiers need to be protected from the elements of nature. Uniforms require water and oil repellency to keep their wearers dry, and flame retardancy to keep them safe. As they’re exposed to insects daily, you need to offer clever ways of protecting them against everything that buzzes and bites. Fabric finishes with impregnated permethrin insecticides, for example, have proven to be a very effective method to repel insects. Apart from protection, military need comfortable clothing that enables them to move freely. Fabrics need to be light-weight, breathable and have moisture-wicking properties. Additionally, garments should have a comfortable feel to enhance mobility and boost performance. On top of that, fabrics should be long-lasting, with colours that stay and coatings that repel mud and dirt, even after frequent washing.
