Hey everyone!

So a few months back I reviewed the Valken Tango Combat uniform (which you can read for the pants here and shirt here), and today I’m back to review its sister uniform, the Kilo Combat uniform. The main difference between the two is that the Kilo Combat uniform isn’t padded like the Tango which makes it a great option for a casual/lightweight loadout.

The Kilo Combat shirt is a hybrid combat shirt made of both ripstop fabric and full camo sublimated breathable moisture wicking fabric that is similar to the material used for paintball jerseys. One thing I cannot stress enough about the Valken uniforms is just how soft the material is. It’s my favourite thing about them.

Even though this camo shirt doesn’t have padding like its Tango counterpart it still has a lot of the features found on it, including sleeve pockets on both arms (perfect size for keeping intel etc) and Velcro panels on the pockets for those tacticool patches. This shirt, however, has rib knit cuffs and a rib knit collar which promotes comfort and a laid-back feel but it still has ripstop reinforced shoulders, elbows, and forearms to give you ample protection on the field.

How does the shirt fit? It has a longline body that we see on paintball jerseys which is easily tucked into trousers and it fits well along the shoulders but the arms are a little long. Overall I think the fit is good and the only improvement I think Valken could make on the shirt would be to swap the rib knit cuffs for an adjustable Velcro closure which would mean a more customised fit on the arms.

The Kilo Combat pants, however, are simply made of the tough ripstop fabric. In regards to features, the pants are a pretty simple design but do allow for adjustment and have a good selection of pockets. To adjust the fit, the pants have a drawstring inner waist that comes in pretty tight and drawstrings on the boot cuffs. For the pockets, they have low profile cargo pockets, deep front hand pockets, concealed zippered front pockets also and rear pockets, giving the users loads of storage on the field.

How do the pants fit? Thanks to the inner waist drawstring the waist pulls in tight which is my main issue I have with combat pants, the leg length is good and they are loose overall without being baggy around the thighs/buttocks/knees. They definitely give you the movement you need on the field.

Both the combat shirt and pants are available in 3 camo options: Woodland, Tiger Stripe and V-Cam and the size range is super inclusive too, with both available in small to 4XL.

As for pricing the shirt retails at $34.95 (£27) and pants $49.95 (£38) from the Valken website.
