AROO has produced the Extreme Cold Weather Clothing System (ECWCS) for the first time in India for the Indian Army.
Munish Hinduja, Co-founder, AROO says, “The manufacturing lines at our OEM’s facility combined with our quality standards and rigorous raw material testing conducted at our OEM's in-house testing facility, provide us with real-time product performance, with an eye on the CLO value (warmth level) and waterproofness of the garment our production supply outperform foreign specifications by 20% to 75% on key performance parameters.”
AROO's first product was ECWCS where they passed field trials in 2017 and are currently manufacturing this product in India through its OEM based out of Bengaluru. ECWCS is a 3-layer modular clothing system worn together, which is designed to operate in temperatures of up to -50 degrees Celsius. This product is used by Indian soldiers at high altitude regions including the Siachin Glacier which is the highest battlefield in the world. This clothing system was being imported for over 25 years.
AROO claims the low-cost ECWCS outperforms the imported clothing systems provided to the Indian Army.
AROO is also in advanced field trials with the Indian Army for the new Trouser ECC (extreme cold clothing) which operates in temperatures up to -30 degrees Celsius.
