“Given the green light back in 2005, MARS – an acronym for Military Alpine Recce System, is the product of what was dubbed “The Lost Arrow Project” by the US military’s Special Operations Command (SOCOM). Drafting in 45+ years of experience in manufacturing outdoor-ready garments, Patagonia’s MARS is a multi-level Protective Combat Uniform - or PCU for short - which comprises 6 “Levels” of protection for the wearer. Whilst it was developed as a full system, the pieces don’t necessarily have to be worn in conjunction with one another, wearers can pick and choose which items they’d like to reap the benefits of” (Ali George Hinkins, Purpose-Built and Field-Tested Apparel | Patagonia's MARS Project).
