Direct Action is a Polish company set up in 2014, that from the outset sought to combine great design and manufacturing capabilities with an up-close-and-personal understanding of the specific end-user needs. From the very beginning Direct Action have been a very tight unit, and their R&D team in Poland consists of just a few good people; each member has his or her own area of expertise and is responsible for the tasks and projects that relate to that. As one example, the guy responsible for their innovation and testing is a recently retired GROM combat medic with almost 20 years of service, and several tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan!
When creating Direct Action gear every detail is rigorously thought-out using a systemic perspective, and there are no random choices, no compromises, no ‘same-old stuff’ design approach, no shying away from new technology; all items are based on first-hand, real world experience of elite special operations units. Direct Action uses the highest quality materials available and the production process itself is subject to rigorous control. The whole line of combat equipment is designed and manufactured in Poland.
But at last they’ve also started getting into clothing, and whilst not cheap at €179, as expected the VANGUARD pants are absolutely top-notch! Comfortable and durable clothing is one of the most important things you can buy, and therefore the VANGUARD combat trousers from Direct Action have been made specially to provide as much freedom of movement as possible without compromising any toughness. Made of NYCO fabric with Cordura 500D reinforcements on the knees, these trousers will serve you well in any shooting or training situation. Numerous pockets, including classic hip pockets, zippered front pockets and hook & loop closed pockets on thighs will allow you to carry all your necessities safely and securely, whilst keeping them 100% accessible at all times; the hook & loop pockets can even be used as improvised dump pouches should the need arise! There are also hook & loop flaps on the lower leg cuffs and behind the knees which allow you to adjust the pants exactly as you like them, and to provide even more freedom of movement the pants feature numerous gussets made of 4-way elastic softshell fabric.
It’s incredibly exciting to watch a brand grow from the ground up, and from humble beginnings Direct Action have grown in the very best way possible, enlarging their offering sensibly to now include comfortable and durable clothing, and moving things on when new ideas or technologies become available right across their range.
