Helikon-Tex began in Poland in 1983 as a military and outdoor surplus company, and is today one of the most prevalent tactical and outdoor clothing and gear brands in Europe. For the past few years they have also been nibbling at the US market and slowly building up brand awareness and a loyal cadre of followers.
Also over the past few years Helikon-Tex has successfully expanded their range of products and their manufacturing base. They have also organized their diverse product portfolio into distinct, purpose-oriented product lines (such as Urban Line, Range Line, Patrol Line, Bushcraft Line, etc.) and standardized their clothing sizes to the US model. However, the lack of a US-based operation and the need to buy from overseas distributors, or from Helikon-Tex direct in Poland, had limited the brand’s appeal and growth potential in the US.
However, that looks all set to change now. Helikon-Tex recently announced that as of the second half of this month Helikon-Tex USA is alive and kicking! Along with a dedicated English language and US $ ecommerce front-end at www.helikon-tex.us the company also has a dedicated warehouse and office on the East Coast of the US staffed by English speaking personnel and open from 9am-5pm Eastern Standard Time Monday-Friday.
The Helikon-Tex US e-store includes all product lines and most of the company’s new products (with more being added all the time). This includes such best-sellers as the Outdoor Tactical Pants (OTP), the innovative new Modernized Battle Dress Uniform (MBDU), lots of well thought-out gear in the Range Line and Bushcraft Line, and lots more besides!
Check out all the goods on the US website, and also look out for Helikon-Tex to be exhibiting at the SHOT Show, NRAAM, and other US trade shows and events over the coming year as well.
