A Polish company called Helikon-Tex is making some pretty kickass urban tactical clothing, and DefenseReview got to see some of it earlier this year at SHOT Show 2019. It’s called the Helikon-Tex Urban Line, and iDR really dug it when we viewed the products at the company’s booth. DR got to see shirts, pants, belts and a ballistic/armored pack (backpack). Everything we saw looked like to was well-designed, and well-made, using quality materials.

We’ll start witht he pants. Helikon offers a bunch, including UTP (Urban Tactical Pants) Jeans, UTP Denim Mid, UTP Flex (with 4-way-stretch fabric), UTP Canvas, and UTP Polycotton Ripstop. These are essentially urban tactical cargo pants designed for consealed carry (CCW), casual wear, and range wear for actual tactical shooting. So, these are triple-duty pants, and they look like they can fulfilll all three roles quite well. Click on the links above to go to the various product pages to see all the Helikon-Tex Urban Line UTP pants’ respective features.

Next up are the Urban Line urban tactical shirts, which come in both lightweight and flannel materials with casual-looking lo-pro/lo-vis (low-profile/low-visibility) solid and plaid patterns/colorways, so you can look stylish while you blend. DR particularly liked the solid charcoal grey and lighter grey plaid Urban Line lightweight shirts we saw, since we live in warm weather environments, but Helikon-Tex’s Urban Line plaid flannel shirts are nice, too. We believe the solid charcoal grey shirt we saw was the Defender MK2 Gentleman Shirt in Black/Grey Melange color scheme, but it’s also possible it was the Defender MK2 Tropical Shirt in Castle Rock color scheme (we think it was the former, though). And, we believe the light-grey-plaid shirt is called the Defender MK2 City Shirt, in Stone Plaid color scheme. Again, check out the respective product pages to see all the shirts’ features.

The Helikon-Tex Downtown Backpack armored/ballistic urban tactical pack is also interesting, in that it can accomodate an anti-rifle hard armor plate and pistol, and can be brought around to the wearer’s front for immediate front ballistic protection and quick weapon access in an emergency. Helikon-Tex has their own nice little video on this pack on the product page.

All in all, some nice urban tactical wear (and packs) from a good company.
