New lightweight and breathable Combat Shirt to be worn under body armor. RAP4's bold new layer of protection for your most important piece of equipment: your body. The new RAP4 Combat Shirt is specifically designed to keep you comfortable, protected from the environment, and well concealed.
Take the best parts of a BDU jacket - rip-stop fabric, mil-standard camo patterns, Velcro-tightening cuffs (to keep out snow, sand, dirt, and bugs), pockets, loop attachment points for patches - and blend that with a water-wicking base layer for your chest and back, and you get the RAP4 Combat Shirt.
The moisture-wicking fabric covers your torso and back, and is engineered to draw sweat and rain away from your body and hold it on the outside surface, where it can evaporate away without bothering you - unlike cotton BDU jackets. Plus, the RAP4 Under Vests And Body Armor BDU moisture-wicking fabric is soft and incredibly comfortable.
This is especially important when working with a tactical vest, as that extra gear presses against your skin and secures tightly around your torso. You want the fabric in between to be as comfortable as possible...and you need it to get rid of that sweat so your vest doesn't chafe you.
That means you need a specially-designed garment to go under those vests, and you need it to coordinate with your existing camo patterns so you blend into your environment. We hear you. that's why we designed the RAP4 Combat Shirt.
These dynamic base layers stand alone as the only top you need for sun and basic environment protection. Under winter clothing, the moisture-wicking front and back panels keep the sweat and snow-melt away from your skin. When the snow, sand or dust starts blowing, zip up the quarter-zip neck and fasten the cuffs tight to keep nature where it belongs: away from your body. that's real-world protection, and it's designed to work under a tactical vest, as your only top layer, or as a light top layer.
You've got enough things to worry about. Play comfortably...and focus on winning.
RAP4 is proud to announce a bold new all-terrain pattern designed by a military veteran for combat operators and players who need to keep it as real as it gets. The All Terrain Pattern—ATPAT—was developed by veteran Patrick Pongracz as a hybrid style combining the most effective elements, colors, and styles, of the military’s leading camouflage patterns into one RAP4-exclusive pattern. ATPAT is combat-ready for an unprecedented variety of environments, and uses cutting-edge science to make you practically invisible.
ATPAT is based on a digital hexagon, rather than digital squares, which creates a pattern completely free of straight lines formed by adjoining cells. This is crucial, because the human eye is extremely adept at picking out shapes, and it does so by identifying lines and contours.
Your brain associates lines and contours with known shapes, and is very good at using tiny clues—like the straight edge of a barrel, the edge of a leg, or even the straight line where your BDU top overhangs your BDU pants—to identify elements of interest and then discern larger objects from their environment.There is an entire branch of perceptual psychology that the military—and RAP4—uses to understand how we detect hidden things…and to use that knowledge to keep our personnel from being detected!
Years of development have improved upon the original camouflage patterns, most recently with Digicam and its derivatives…
…and now, with ATPAT. The tiny hexagons deny observers any chance to pick up a straight line from the pattern. Overlapping pieces of ATPAT gear—like a pack over an ATPAT BDU top or a mag pouch on an ATPAT vest—seem to seamlessly blend into each other when observed from more than a few feet away.
Then the whole of the wearer blends into the environment with a color scheme that is chosen to reflect the more easily overlookedcolors in the background of most tactical environments—which is exactly what you want to blend into when you’re trying not to be seen.
Thus, ATPAT combines a revolutionary design with scientifically chosen and field test proven colors. It took Pongracz and RAP4 more than two years to perfect that blend…and now it’s ready, and available exclusively from RAP4.
You can select ATPAT as your go-to pattern for use in the deep woods, and expect it to work extremely well even as you charge onto urban fields. Blend into southwestern landscapes, disappear in the weeds, and haunt the darkest corners of your opponents’ minds, with the confidence that ATPAT will keep you safe from prying eyes.
Even in plain sight.
ATPAT is now available as a pattern on clothing and select tactical accessories, and is quickly spreading throughout our product line. If you don’t see ATPAT as an option on the gear you want, just call us and ask—we can probably make it happenfor you now, or very, very soon.
Get in on the leading edge of concealment technology…and be the best-dressed combatant your opponents will never see.
RAP4—As Real as it Gets!
