Crye Precision ¿Gen. 4?

Todo el mundo conoce al fabricante Crye Precision, lo que no quiere decir que todos tengamos los recursos económicos para hacernos con uno de sus uniformes o chalecos. Pero volviendo sobre sus famosos uniformes de combate, una de las preguntas más repetidas por los jugadores que los ven en las tiendas es ¿cual es la diferencia entre el Gen.2 y el Gen.3?

Simplificando y siendo un poco muy bestias, podríamos arriesgarnos a de decir que si os fijais en las rodilleras podréis encontrar la manera más facil de identificar cada uno. Siendo la Gen.3 "de diseño partido" mientras que la Gen.2 es "de una pieza". Sí, realmente esto es solo un detalle y hay diferencias más significativas, pero para empezar por algún lado esto ayuda bastante ;)

¿Y a cuento de qué rescatamos esto ahora? Pues porque en el SHOT Show de Las Vegas hemos podido ver la Gen.4 del Combat Uniform de Crye. Y siguiendo con la linea que llevabamos hasta ahora os diremos que viene con rodilleras con rallas hexagonales :P

Para todos aquellos que entiendan inglés os dejamos aquí las novedades que supone frente a las generaciones anteriores para que no os quejéis porque no os contamos cosas nuevas:

G4 Combat PanTrouser:

-Front of thigh pocket is now internally mounted and mesh lined for ventilation with a zip closure. Specifically designed with a slanted base inside for carriage of smart phones.


-Main thigh cargo/side pocket has moved forward somewhat. No mesh lining, still 2 velcro tabs for closure. Lids on pockets now are extremely slim and stiff compared to G3, seemingly using some sort of fabric welding technique.


-Left pocket internal elastic is 2 small loops for retention for breaching charges with corresponding VTX loops above the pocket opening. Pleat/expansion billow is singular and found at the back edge of the pocket.
-Right leg cargo pocket has G3 style internal elastic sized for a magazine.


-Knee pad adjustment moved inside the main cargo pocket and now consists of just a single stand of bungee cord vs the G3's double strand arrangement. Now covered and routed with fabric inside of the pant leg instead of being exposed and causing you to fall about like an idiot when putting on your trousers which has definitely never happened.


-Ankle pocket is now a zip closure and is located more towards the back of the calf. Expansion pleat at the base.
-Slight material upgrade on waist adjustment tabs. Should give greater longevity in use.
-The panel of VTX in the area that was previously the lower back stretch is sewn in at 90 degrees to most of the rest of the pant to create an effect more in line with the old stretch panel.


-Crotch gusset remains present.
-Rear pockets are back to an AC style in a lot of ways. Same thin and rigid closure flap as the thigh cargo pockets. Single but wider velcro closure vs Gen 2. No mesh lining.
-Padded waist band remains. Now with wicking material lining around the inside of the waist, akin to that found in the collar of the G3 All-Weather combat shirt.

G4 Combat shirt:
-New, slightly lighter torso fabric (around 15-20%) with a more comfortable feel but apparently greater durability and capacity to breathe.

-Mesh was considered for the panels directly under the arms but air/moisture pass through rates on the new fabric were found to be so high that this idea was binned off.

-Full pattern torso in Multicam will be an option in some manner (whether for us mere, mortals I'm unsure) if you don't mind paying a higher price.

-Torso fabric continues behind the arm pockets for another ventilation option.


-VTX fabric fully encloses all the edges of the colour matched loop fields.


-Elbow pad pockets are now mounted internally.

Ahora bien, hasta marzo no empezará su producción. Y para las versiones para climas cálidos, frios y extremadamente fríos aún habrá que esperar más. Pero mientras tanto seguro que iremos encontrando fotos de operadores con esta nueva generacion de uniformes. Y claro, seguro que alguna marca también nos trae réplicas similares con un precio más adsequible a no mucho tardar...
