Tactical Products - Know the Difference: Commercial Use vs Berry Compliant

Posted: 3/2/2017

By: Collin Barnwell

Our customers might request that a product be defined as Mil-Spec or Military Specification. This requested specification tells our staff two things about the product:

  1. Mil Spec items are generally are made with a higher construction count and higher tenacity yarn that allow the product to perform at a high level, often times higher than a commercial version item
  2. Most often Armed Forces or Department of Defense contracts require Mil Spec Products

DirecTex’s Pro Force Tactical™ product line offers compliant product for one, or both, of these needs.
