With the series FronTier One, BE-X entered a new chapter of apparel with all garments made from high-quality fabric commission printed especially for BE-X . What’s more, all closures and buckles are from ITW Nexus, and all zippers from YKK. Construction is top-notch as well, all loaded seams are bar tacked. And finally, no need to second guess the sizing – all sizes and fit follow the standard, tried-and-tested EU & US model.
The new Tactical BDU (TBDU) trousers build the bridge between the Basic Combat Uniform trousers in the lower price segment, and the Infantry trousers in the premium segment. For BE-X it was important however that achieving a mid-range price point was not achieved by sacrificing the quality of materials or construction. The pants are built 1: 1 to the same high quality standards that BE-X delivers in the full FronTier One clothing line. The lower price point for the TBDU trousers was achieved instead by using a rugged “tactical” ripstop fabric without the additional cost of milspec NIR treatments and tests.
The comfortably cut TBDU trousers have two side and two back pockets, as well as two large thigh-level cargo pockets with pleats and a lower leg pocket for a first-aid kit. In the double knee area knee pads can be inserted (which are available as an option). Knee pad placement and tension is adjusted by way of tabs with Velcro fasteners on either side of the legs.
The BE-X TBDU trousers are now available in PenCott-GreenZone and Bundeswehr Flecktarn camouflage patterns.
