Fibrotex Technologies has announced that it will supply its FIGHTEX combat uniforms for an elite unit of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) as part of an add-on order from the Israel Ministry of Defense (MoD) announced on 27 November.

Fibrotex Technologies provides advanced static and mobile camouflage and deception systems for armies and security forces worldwide. According to the company, the smart, next generation, two-sided FIGHTEX uniforms were selected for the IDF over various international competitors following extensive rigorous tests that were conducted under extreme environmental, climatic, and combat conditions.

The durable, combat-proven uniforms are lightweight and provide visual and near infra-red concealment. The reversible fabrics are printed with a different camouflage pattern on each side, enabling the adjustment of uniforms to any type of environment and enhancing the soldiers' survivability. For example, one side of the fabric can provide camouflage for green areas such as forests, while the other side camouflages soldiers in desert or urban environments.  Patterns and properties can be fully customized to precisely match any other requirements.
Yosef Kraus, Fibrotex Technologies VP marketing and sales, said: ‘We are pleased to have been selected once again to supply smart uniforms to one of the elite units of the IDF. We regard this repeat selection of our uniforms as a reflection of the quality of our solutions, and of the IDF's full confidence in them. We will begin delivery of the order at the end of this year and will continue the supply during the first quarter of 2013.’
