Crye Precision®, one of the leading suppliers of uniforms and personal equipment to the military, law enforcement and public safety markets, has announced the release of their new G4 Female Fit line.
Women throughout history have been striving for acceptance in traditionally male roles. Today, the number of brave women in combat roles and tactical law enforcement positions continues to rise, and with that comes the need for apparel suited to meet their specific demands and body types. For years, the traditional combat uniform has catered to the male form – with longer leg inseams, narrower hip shaping and broad chest and shoulder width, compromising a female’s comfort and performance alongside her male counterparts. The Crye Precision® G4 Female Fit line’s goal was to address these issues to afford women the same level of performance, comfort, and mobility afforded a male.
The Crye Precision® design team met extensively with women serving in the military and law enforcement to better understand their needs. Each in-depth interview consisted of understanding operational needs, reviewing currently issued uniforms, taking a wide range of measurements and documenting the wearers’ requests. Based on the end-user feedback and size evaluations, the adjusted uniforms increase comfort, mobility and functionality for a woman’s fit. The result is a female-specific uniform that is unmatched in the industry.
In addition to conversations with women serving in the military and law enforcement, the design team also took an in-depth look into the lives of female civilians who require cutting-edge technology and performance in other arenas. From shooting sports to advanced carbine training, the G4 Female Fit line is designed to work for the women who take their range time seriously and require top-tier range apparel.
The G4 Female Fit Line features the same innovative qualities and custom stretch VTX RIPSTOP™ fabric as the standard G4 line with a design that is specifically patterned to fit our female customers. The Combat & Field Shirts feature sleeves with a reduced circumference and raised armholes for enhanced mobility and a more ergonomic female fit, with bust shaping and minimized shoulder width providing a slimmer profile. The reduced neck opening, and collar height were designed for a female form without compromising function. The Combat & Field Pants feature dedicated shaping around the hips to allow for a slimmer cut with maximum mobility. Reduced fly/zipper height and length, front and back rise and inseam lengths provide a more tailored fit throughout.
Women’s roles in the military and law enforcement have continued to evolve. Their jobs require that they perform at the best of their ability at all times. Our new G4 Female Fit series of uniforms are a direct result of listening to specific user needs and building designs around them, from the fabric to each feature and detail. We’re honored to supply those who put themselves on the line to keep the rest of us safe, and we’re proud to be making all of our products right here in the USA.
