Arktis at ESS2022
We had a great time showing at this year's Emergency service show this year at Birmingham's NEC. We got a lot of attention over the two days, with our stand being one of the busiest for a lot of the first day, due in no part to our very cool collection of free patches, stickers and lanyards.
We had a lot of visitors from police officers from all over, from Guernsey to Yorkshire, coming by to check out our gear and share their love for the ever-popular B315 Avenger Coat.
There was also a lot of interest in the E9, our newest designed tac vest. Designed and built using research we conducted alongside Lincoln university and Lincolnshire Police.
The vest uses our propriety harness system to reduce head acceleration and harness movement by 46% and 15%, respectively. That means significantly reducing the associated muscular skeletal injuries associated with load-bearing systems. To learn more, watch our video, or download a spec sheet here.
Aside from all the police attention, we also got a lot of interest from fire & rescue workers for our Arktis Medical - Air Ambulance Flight Suit. The suit, built with antistatic and FR fibres, is wind and water-resistant, which was a big plus for these guys on the stand, as well as the Vibram knee pads of the Mk2.
We also got a lot of Arktis fans visiting to say hi and check out some of our upcoming items like the Vulcan and Stealth. These new lightweight layers are designed to work in tandem. One is the insulation, the other providing high water and wind proofing in an incredible lightweight form factor.
It was also great to tour the hall and see some great new tech and innovations across the industry. It's an exciting time, and we're glad to be a part of it. We are looking forward to next year's show.
Our next event is in Vegas for the Shot Show from 17-20th January.
If you're a stateside Arktis fan. Don't miss the chance to come by and meet the team.
Afterwards, we'll be heading to Nuremberg, Germany, 2-5th March for the IWA Outdoor Classic 2023.
Now, it's been a long week, and we could all do with some well-earned rest. Till next time!
