This high-caliber and dependable line of products has many advantages over the competition. A new reservoir closer developed by IGLOO overcame limitations of the previous one, which had failed to pass rigorous US Army testing for withstanding pressure. The new closer provides superior performance but costs no more to produce. More comfortable and easier to use, the new system meets stringent US Army standards. IGLOO's solution provided Source with the potential to increase sales exponentially. Some of the products in the line have won prestigious design awards in Israel and Europe.
