EXTREME TEMPERATURES, EXTREME MEASURES
From the frigid forests of Northern Europe to the snow-capped mountain ranges of Korea, any force with the foresight to stockpile and train with the right gear won’t just survive the cold—they’ll turn an extreme environment into a game-changing force multiplier. Simply equipping your operators with effective over-snow mobility options and reliable cold weather gear gives them a massive edge over a peer adversary.
ADS understands your budget rarely includes a separate line item for cold weather gear. Not to mention, official DoD cold weather requirements guidance is riddled with capability gaps at extreme temperatures, especially for individual mobility and mountaineering needs.
Our custom kitted solutions take the guesswork out of unstandardized acquisition of cold weather gear by using proven commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) equipment—ensuring maximum compatibility with your current equipment and operational doctrine. Purchase environmental protection systems, boots, and gloves—all under one cost-effective invoice that can be applied to multiple budget categories. Spend less time in the office and more time training.
Beyond Clothing’s A7 Cold Jacket and Pants is built with a DWR coated nylon ripstop shell over Climashield® APEX Insulation.

The A7 Cold Jacket is oversized and designed to be worn over layers A1-A5 while static in arctic climates.
