AG Cilander x armasuisse

AG Cilander and three other Swiss companies produce camouflage fabric for the army's new combat clothing.


Quality and innovative spirit pay off: We are proud to be allowed to finish camouflage fabrics for the army's new combat clothing. As one of four Swiss companies, the Federal Office of Armament armasuisse awarded us the contract. The contract is for modular clothing and equipment (MBAS).

In a series of finishing processes, we waterproof the polyurethane-coated ripstop fabric for the new rain ponchos. A water resistance of 10 metres water column in combination with tapeable seams brings optimal performance for the army's rainwear. In addition, outstanding strength meets very low weight.

The new camouflage suit "Fighter", made of a blended fabric of polyester and cotton in a robust ripstop weave, also receives an easy-care finish. This combination guarantees excellent strength with a tactile feel and a pleasant wearing comfort. We thus ensure hard-wearing textiles with a long product life cycle.
