The Defender Mk2 long sleeve Shirt is an update to the older Defender model and was reconfigured to fit into Helikon-Tex’ Urban line. The target group is law enforcement, security personnel and/or active people. The shirt aims to combine a functional and tactical design with enough room for movement and low profile body armor underneath. […]
Tilak is one of my favorite technical apparel companies since I was introduced to them in 2015 and got one of their jackets the same year: the Tilak Loke (you can read about it here). Since the Loke is not lined, I was never able to use it through the colder seasons – which I […]
Introduction Regular readers of mine, as well as followers on Facebook and Instagram might know that I got hold of several camouflage uniforms this year – courtesy of Helikon Tex. With this means available to me, I was able to shoot several comparison pictures throughout the year. With the following review I want to show […]
For several weeks now, I am using a Helikon-Tex Windrunner shirt and would like to take the opportunity to give you my impression of this very lightweight piece of gear. According to Helikon-Tex it is designed to be an outer layer for athletic activities like running, or as an additional layer over your clothes, if […]
In previous camouflage comparisons I have focused mainly on the newest and/or dominant patterns available and those in use by „western“ militaries. At the same time I was restricted to what was at hand. As you know, I got my hands on quite a lot of camouflage patterns in the previous months so I am […]
In my last review I took a closer look at three different semi-arid, transitional camouflage patterns: PenCott BadLands, Camogrom and Kryptek Highlander. For the sake of readability I split it in two parts – after all I had compiled around 30 pictures. Part 1 put the various camouflage patterns under absolute extreme exposure, showing the […]
Some time has passed since my last camouflage comparison and to be honest, I was quite surprised by the attention my last fieldtest attracted. The article was a little bit provoking to be honest, but apparently that was what started a very fruitful exchange on various platforms. One thing let to another and the team […]

In the meantime two years have passed and this jacket has undergone some […]
If Pine Survey is notorious of something in this huge universe of review blogs it is camouflage reviews. Those reports of mine are still among those with the highest hit count and if I get asked something via PM or mail it is about camouflage with a 75% chance.
With that being said I want to present you yet another small contribution to the list of camouflage evaluations. I have introduced SloCam to you guys before in 1-2 reviews. Those were done with a sole cloth of fabric, which is nice to get an first impression of the pattern itself, but it only tells half of the story.
After speaking with my friends at UF PRO, they were kind enough to field me a set of SloCam apparel. With that I was able to shoot some more pictures for you guys to give you an impression on how this camouflage pattern actually looks in the wild. This will only be a small part of a coming series of reviews I am now able to do.
