In 2016 ProApto Pattern n.9 is the first ever fully waterproof and breathable multispectral leaf-suit (leafy-suit / 3D ghillie) introduced in the market. We designed it to fulfill the continuous demand of a lightweight "leafy Ghillie" capable to maintain 3D shape even under heavy rains and amphibious operations. Thanks to our waterproof Infra Red Camouflage (WIRC) fabric we became capable to achieve effective multispectral camouflage while keeping extremely low weight and modular efficiency.
Although specifically designed for broad-leaved woodlands in the spring and summer months, the baseline also works extremely well during winter, thanks to the ivy and oak shades of WIRC fabric. Pattern n.9 is a fully waterproof and breathable leafsuit, NIR-compliant under both active and passive IR systems. It's particularly lightweight: the Ghillie suit in the photo above weighs 450gr. A further advantage is its reduced propensity to getting caught in bushes and vegetation compared to cotton and mesh fabric, and its permanent 3D depth effect.

The WIRC fabric get not stuck in the bush as cotton and mesh fabrics and does not loose the 3D shape of depth even after prolonged compression, abrasions and heavy humidity and rain.
