I am glad to see an integrated belt which loops around the entire waist of the pants in the omnipat range, instead of just the front section, on my old pair they only looped around the front half which would see them sliding down every time I knelt down. It’s good to see the stitching has improved in the omnipat range and that the new ultralites now come with a Velcro zip. The elastic waist is still there in the rear half of the pants, which will give some take for those with some junk in the trunk.



Onto the pant leg, in the old ultralites they had a draw string which I believe was a good idea, one which I believe shouldn’t have been messed with, to be honest it should have been made an elastic draw string with a toggle, I like the idea of the Velcro seem at the bottom as it will help putting knee pants, which previous ultralites didn’t have, however there isn’t much to tighten them up around the ankle, so I have had to modify the pant legs with a elastic loop with toggle, as I am paranoid about nasty crawling up my leg. Yes I should get over it however I just don’t like the idea of anything crawling up my leg whilst hiding in ambush….considering Australia has most of the creatures that make up a top 10 deadliest snakes/spiders etc Its something I am concerned about

On the jacket, I removed the Velcro patches, as I thought they were a little too big and stood out too much from the rest of the uniform…… I did put them to good use though on the elastic band on my dagger vest to prevent the Velcro pulling threads over time on the vest and on garments.



I had to remove the Velcro from one of the back pockets as I use this to store a barrel swab during play, good idea if you have to take your wallet or keys onto the field though….which I might have to do when traveling events. Also the front pockets have Velcro on them to help prevent anything falling out of your pockets.





I like the new collars on the neck and wrist, nice and tight and will help prevent the arms sliding up or nasty creatures getting in under your uniform.

Products Used:
BDUs
Marker Setup: A-5 w. R/T on remote, J&J Edge barrel, SAW stock
Strengths: Pattern disruption, breathability, comfort are excellent. Great for scenario or woodsball.
Weaknesses: The velcro can damage them; they may let in sand, dirt, and ticks.
Review: I used OMNIPAT ultralites all summer and had nothing but good results. Generally, they work well in semi-arid, open field, and pine forest environments. Also provide decent camo in hardwood forests. Only time they stood out a little was in green underbrush back in June.

They made humid days bearable and any breeze was felt and appreciated. I rolled down a hillside in these, shook off the dirt with no rips or tears, and played on. After crawling through wet grass, I dried off quickly. Much better than sweat soaked BDUs.

The design has the knees reinforced but not elbows or shoulders. Swab pocket, cargos with velcro closures. Velcro tends to catch fabric if not properly closed. internal belt not as useful as it seemed it would be. Internal mesh short is ok, but white back of fabric shows through some at pockets. Not cut for movement as much as I would like. Velcro cuff on pants works if you also use elastic bands from military surplus on top of boots.

I washed them a half dozen times by hand and on gentle cycle with Woolite and with dish soap. Air dry. Little to no problems except occasionally with velcro catching and with some slight wear under arm where vest chaffed.

Expensive but unique.
Conclusion: If you can afford to spend the money, and you play in humid or hot conditions regularly, pick these up. Don't expect them to be as indestructable as your BDUs. The design has not been perfected yet, but they do make a difference in hot games. If you play a slow, deliberate game or fixed defense, the OMNIPAT is a clear advantage. Overall, I am very happy with OMNIPAT Ultralites.
