UNIFORM MODIFICATION SERVICES – E-FCHP, FCHP, FCHS & RAID

UNCONVENTIONAL UNIFORM MODIFICATIONS/CONVERSIONS

For your project requests, contact me at unctac@yahoo.com

Intro:

The idea behind my innovations is to provide a lower cost alternative for those who want/need a customizable “combat” uniform or combat shirt or pants… that is functional, allows fitment of various brands of insertable hard-cap combat knee pads and/or hard-cap elbow pads and is adjustable. Furthermore, the person is not limited to just a few types of camo or color options as found through major retailers…they can have just about any uniform modified based on the streamlined options I provide or via a custom configuration per the users request.  The most common project requests are for modifications to a persons (or teams) military issue field uniforms (current issue or other type), as well as other types of tactical pants or shirts, such as international camo pattern uniforms or flat color based tactical clothing…which are converted into E-FCHP’s (Enhanced Field/Combat Hybrid Pants), FCHP’s ( Field/Combat Hybrid Pants)  and FCHS (Field Combat/Hybrid Shirt) shirts. None of my conversions or modifications are copy’s of name brand designs. They may have similar features that the name brand designs have but are, in no way, copy’s of other peoples/companies designs. I also offer repair, additions and/or modifications to existing (in-service) law enforcement tactical uniforms and issue conventional military and military SOF uniforms and soft gear  

* The uniforms and kit shown in the photos on this page and in this blog are for demonstration purposes only and are not meant to portray an accurate representation of any US or foreign military, LE, EMS or PMC entity * Any and all knee pads, elbow pads, riggers belts, chem sticks and other items shown in the photos are not included in the conversions/modifications and are for demo purposes only, however, I can source particular items at an additional cost, at reasonable prices, if you need them.

I  OFFER SIX VERSIONS OF PANTS CONVERSIONS:

E-FCHP PATRIOT (military, LE, EMS/SAR, PMC’s only !)

* This  pants conversion is specifically for law enforcement, military, EMS, SAR and PMC personnel only and is generally for those who are donning specific items on their person for dynamic entry, EOD, recon or other specific/unusual operations.  …see SWAT/SRT page for sample of a past SWAT team order * the options will be discussed privately, via my paid for, private e-mail.  E-mail me first, at  unctac@yahoo.com  if interested in the E-FCHP Patriot pants conversion. When I receive an e-mail from you regarding the E-FCHP Patriot pants conversion…I will then contact you through my more secure, private, paid for e-mail address and discuss what your needs are regarding what custom additions you would like done to your pants..etc. After the options and features are discussed and you have decided on what you want, I will then send you a Pending Quote that will reflect the modifications/additions you want, pricing, shipping cost, payment methods and shipping/receiving etc.

About Unconventional - Tactical

Since my initial start of working in a protective service occupation (stateside only) and also being employed in the surveillance investigator field, conducting quite a lot of assignments involving technical surveillance operations in suburban and mountain regions, I became increasingly aware of just how well (and not so well) different types of field equipment, concealment patterns, clothing and other gear worked. Instead of simply talking about all of the gear and equipment with friends and acquaintances all the time, I decided to start a web page where folks can discuss how much they like or dislike various gear that they have used or that they are interested in purchasing but want other peoples opinions based on their own personal accounts of the gear they used. Types of gear and equipment on my page ranges from basic protective occupations gear/equipment and surveillance/concealment operations clothing/gear...all the way to military special operations equipment and gear. I have also custom made a few items that I have sold to a few good friends and acquaintances that can be used reliably in MIL-SIM & TAC-SIM events and training as well as "real deal" operations..etc. My son and I became avid tactical simulation attendees after my son introduced me to organized scenario-based air-soft events. Needless to say, he got me hooked on it and I find it to be a great way for fathers and son's and friends to function as a team and employ real world tactics in a safe and non-lethal environment.
