Beyond Tactical CLS-PCU - Camber Layering System (CLS-PCU)


Camber Layering System 
Beyond Tactical PCU - Customization System (PCU-CS)



In July 2007, Beyond was announced as the official manufacturer and supplier of the U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) Custom PCU Cold Weather Layering System.
This is based on the current PCU (Protective Combat Uniform) system, but integrated with Beyond's custom manufacturing and fit system, their garments and PCU-specific fabrics and materials. 


Scott Jones, owner and founder of Beyond, headed the design team for all 16 specialized garments. “With the incredible help of the folks at Natick and within the Special Forces community, the PCU-CS is the system of the future. Through custom fit, advanced fabrics, and layers that become more than the sum of their parts, the end user is able to be more comfortable, in more conditions, with less bulk and weight.” The system is officially available to those members of Special Operations Forces (SOF) who do not fit into the standard grades of the original PCU kit.

In the field, the custom made layers will be mixed and matched depending on the variables of the current environment. They include long underwear briefs, pants and shirts, fleece tops and bottoms, a wind shirt, technical soft shell jacket and pant, waterproof/breathable suit, and a choice of 4 Primaloft Synthetic Down products, for a total package of 26 integrated garments. Fabrics chosen are made by Polartec®, EPIC by Nextec®, W.L. Gore®, and Primaloft®.
