These modern military gear examples range from space-age rain jackets to speed-enhancing jet packs that improve an individual's ability to run for long periods of time while enhancing their overall strength.

In addition to sophisticated weapons and compact utility tools, today's military gear is not only intended for combat but also targets gamers or extreme outdoorsmen with an appreciation for activities that fuel their adrenaline.

Standouts include backpacks that are designed to support injured soldiers during combat along with rugged smartphone cases and wireless chargers that keep military personnel connected even when on the battlefield. Other important military gear examples include re-designed military uniforms -- that keep soldiers hidden while behind enemy lines -- and fashion-forward army apparel that borrows from high performance uniform designs.
