TAMPA, Fla., May 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, at SOFIC, Climashield® joined an elite group of military, government and industry partners in supporting our Special Operations Forces. At Booth 1648, Climashield exhibits its custom line of insulation known for its resiliency in extreme conditions.

"We are proud to manufacture a product that meets the high standards of the Special Forces. In testing, we continue to deliver more warmth at lighter weights, so the men and women serving our country do not have to sacrifice warmth for function," said Matt Schrantz, chief operating officer at Climashield®. "One thing we love about this show is the opportunity to connect with the soldiers using cold weather gear in the field, so we can learn about their greatest needs and in turn, offer them the very best solutions." 

For the new Protective Combat Uniform (PCU), Climashield® COMBAT insulation's unsurpassed warmth-to-weight ratio helped significantly reduce the weight of the jacket, pants and vest in Level 7.  The insulation also boasts AquaBan® technology for warmth and breathability in wet and humid conditions and Durable Warmth so that no matter how many times the product is stretched, packed or washed, it maintains thermal efficiency over time.

Made in the U.S.A., Climashield® is also featured in the Marine Modular Sleep System, the Marine 3 Season Sleeping Bag, the Marine Extreme Cold Weather, the Marine Poncho Liner and the Third Generation Extended Cold Weather Clothing System for the U.S. Army.
