ThruDark Technologies DIVISION
DEVELOP | INTEGRATE | TEST
TESTED BY FORMER UK SPECIAL FORCES
As UK Special Forces operators, we were equipped with the highest specification kit and clothing for the operation at hand. That said, we were always critical of the way it performed and we are at the forefront of developing it to meet our exacting demands. Our credible background and years of experience working within this high calibre environment, we feel, gives us a distinct advantage over our competitors. We know what works, and we strip the unnecessary excess to leave you with a product like no other. We put the hard yards in personally so you need only to embrace and enjoy the elements and adventure without worrying about your clothing compromising you.
FROM DOOR KICKING TO FABRIC PULLING
ThruDark co founders meticulously select each and every fabric for the products you see before you. In order to develop the best possible outerwear, we then follow this process from initial design and then first prototype/sample. This prototype garment is then tested in all weather extremes during various suitable activities to ascertain its overall functional capability. We then return the prototype (if it’s still in one piece) and implement any design and/or fabric changes required for the next prototype. This process then repeats, and then repeats some more, until we are completely happy with the final outcome. The finalised prototype then moves into production at out Italian factory. ThruDark garments aren’t simply replications of existing products sourced from Far East countries and re branded. Each and everyone of our products undergoes this same meticulous process.
Thrudark Patch System
Military call sign patches are utilised to indicate specific units, groups and individuals on the battlefield. These specific unit/squadron patches are worn by assaulters with tremendous pride. In most cases, these patches are earned by the respective individual and only issued once that individual has proven themselves worthy to carry the patch into battle. The ThruDark patch system was something we personally wished to bridge across into the civilian world. A feeling a brotherhood, of belonging. By including the ThruDark patch on to your garment you are proudly indicating your allegiance to the brand and carry forth with you that honour and pride.
Designed by Special Forces Sniper
ThruDark Heritage Camouflage Liner
Our bespoke ThruDark patented camouflage liner was designed personally by ourselves. Years of operating as a Special Forces sniper instructor meant selecting and designing our own camouflage was something unique to our brand heritage and story and is an incredible finishing touch to our products. Camouflage, and its application to real world environment, is something we are very accustomed to. To see and not been seen. This particular ThruDark camouflage includes wolf hair, water elements and stone blended together to create a truly unique print.
Be searchable: In case of avalanches and emergencies or if lost in the outdoors RECCO rescue reflectors make you searchable by organised rescue teams searching with RECCO detectors. RECCO TECHNOLOGY IS NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR AN AVALANCHE TRANSCEIVER.
THE COHAESIVE SYSTEM
The Cohæsive™ System embeds functional components into the fabric of a garment. It includes an engineered adhesive, tools and procedures to install the world’s best cord management hardware.
THE SPECIAL ABRASION-PROOF PROTECTIVE FABRIC. The outstanding Ceraspace™ technology from Schoeller® owes its outstanding protective properties to a unique composition of special ceramic particles anchored in a polymer matrix. The special ceramic particles are nearly as hard as diamonds and are firmly attached as a 3-dimensional coating to the textile.
Breathable shelter from the storm. At eVent, we believe that waterproof/breathable should also mean dry and comfortable. eVent fabrics was the first to engineer and use patented Direct Venting technology so rain can’t get in but sweat can get out instantly.
