Czech, family run outdoor label make some incredible clothing. Wether it's their mountain sports range, their technical lifestyle range "Poutnik" or their collaborations with creative brands like ACRNYM Tilak know that outdoor clothing needs to be relied upon.
For some of Tilak's customers the reliability of their clothing could be the difference between making it home alive and well, or not. None more so than for their military gear customers.
For these special customers Tilak produce a range of products designed specifically for use by military and special forces and as such used by some of the military worlds elite operators.
This is about as practical as gear can get. Little to no branding and using the highest quality materials they cut out anything that might get in the way of performing and focus on delivering amazing products that can be relied upon when it might matter most.
We've been lucky to be granted access to a select pick of some of these military spec products and we think they're some of the best we've had for their specific uses.
The Stinger MiG is a super lightweight fully waterproof jacket that utilises Gore Tex Paclite Plus fabric. The perfect jacket for fast lightweight hiking trips it's kept fully watertight using an AquaGuard® Vislon front zip and two waterproof pocket zips. Anatomical shaping for ease of movement and minimal visible external branding. An instant favourite with this Thing Of Ours its on our Christmas list already.
Working side by side with the Stinger MiG is the Ketil MiG a lightweight insulated jacket that utilises Climashield Apex synthetic fleece fabric. It's the perfect insulation layer when moving light and fast is the plan so perfect for lightweight hiking or just travelling light of any kind. Again anatomically shaped for easy movement the shoulders and forearms are reinforced and minimal branding keeps it as low profile as possible. A non nonsense insulation layer that does the business and looks great too.
We've always been suitably impressed with Tilak gear but this no nonsense Military Spec stuff has raised the bar even further. We can't speak highly enough for the brand and products we've had our hands one. Whilst we love some of the big name outdoor brands if you want something different from the crowd that you know can be relied upon in the harshest conditions then you can't go wrong with Tilak and their MiG products will go toe to toe with any on the market.
