Insulation proves durable enough to stand up to the extreme requirements of a brand known for providing the ultimate protection
MUNICH, Feb. 4, 2013 – Today, at ISPO MUNICH, Climashield® (Hall C2, Stand 362) announced that Helikon-Tex® has selected its brand of insulation for the Level VII Coyote jacket.
Having developed numerous insulation applications for the U.S. Armed Forces, Climashield® has a long history of working with customers to develop a custom product for tactical and military gear.

“By partnering with Helikon-Tex®, we are aligning with a company that shares our dedication to provide the best in performance and design for the men and women who protect their country and community. We look forward to a continued relationship with this premium brand,” said Matt Schrantz, chief operating officer at Climashield®.
