Blue Force Gear and their Helium Whisper Technology are on a roll! The latest manufacturer to license Helium Whisper technology for use on their own pouches is STRATAGEM! They also happen to be the first manufacturer to license Helium Whisper technology that is based outside of the USA. If you don’t think Flecktarn camo and Helium Whisper are cool, I can’t help you…
SAVANNAH, GA—March 11, 2013—Blue Force Gear® announced today that they will provide their weight-slashing Helium Whisper™ pouch attachment system to STRATAGEM®. While other U.S. companies have already begun licensing this technology, STRATAGEM takes the lead as the first overseas manufacturer to license Blue Force Gear’s Patent pending Helium Whisper.
“We at STRATAGEM® are proud to be working with Blue Force Gear and use Helium Whisper™ as a component of our products,” said Markus Jahn, STRATAGEM’s CEO. “Helium Whisper allows us to grant our customers access to an outstanding technology, giving them the benefit of lighter and more efficient equipment by reducing the weight of our pouches dramatically. It enables us to raise the level of our pouches and to fulfill our aspiration of providing cutting edge products to today’s warfighter.”
“STRATAGEM is a top quality German company who services the elite with quality gear. We’re proud they’ve chosen Helium Whisper to help lighten the load of their customers,” said Doug Duggan, Blue Force Gear’s International Business Development Manager.
Helium Whisper allows modular pouch backs to be constructed from a single piece of high-performance laminate versus the multiple straps and snaps of outdated designs. This amazing breakthrough increases strength and durability of pouches while eliminating failure points and reducing weight by up to 60 percent. Helium Whisper licensing allows OEM customers to reduce sewing costs, minimize alignment errors, maintain or increase durability, and stay relevant to today’s weight-conscious military customers.
