Kryptek Is Now Doing The Dew

Monday, July 14th, 2014

20140714-085442.jpg

I was ‘out and about’ last night, and I happened to spot these ‘Limited Edition Kryptek Military Heroes Pack’ boxes of Mountain Dew. Reportedly, only the boxes get the camo, not the cans. You can pick these up anywhere they sell Mountain Dew.

The Real Masters Of Urban Camouflage? Disney

Tuesday, June 10th, 2014

There’s been a big push recently for gray colored gear thanks to its ability to “blend” into the urban landscape. Well, as it turns out, Disney’s practically perfected this ideal in their own proprietary Go Away Green and No See-um Gray colors. They coat their utility and auxiliary buildings in their various parks with the colors so that the guests pass by the buildings without noticing them.

Crye Precision Releases New MultiCam Patterns and Reinvents Website

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013

Just in case you missed it, SSD ran a story on Crye Precision’s expansion of the MultiCam line to include new patterns.

MultiCam

Today, Crye Precision officially released four new variant camouflage patterns based on the ever popular MultiCam; Arid, Tropical, Alpine and Black. Each is designed for specialized use while the classic MultiCam transitional pattern continues to be great for more universal wear as it tends to blend into most any environment. While Transitional and Black are available for order now, Duro Textiles will have the other new patterns available for order soon.

One new feature you may notice is that the MultiCam family of patterns all feature branding embedded in the print.

20131125-190711.jpg

MultiCam is the combat-proven solution for concealment when operating in widely varied and mixed terrain. While MultiCam is suited to an extremely wide selection of environments, we have developed three new patterns that are optimized for narrower areas of operation. These new patterns work well with the primary MultiCam pattern to meet the needs of these extreme environments, thus expanding the performance envelope of the MultiCam family to cover nearly every possible environmental condition. The MultiCam patterns can be used alone or in conjunction with each other to meet nearly any operational requirement.

multicam_graph

The same user now has more system-level options. For instance, a MultiCam chest rig can be paired with a MultiCam Tropic uniform for a known jungle deployment. Similarly, a MultiCam vest and pack can be paired with a MultiCam Arid uniform for activity within an open sand and rock desert. MultiCam Alpine is best suited for any environment encountering significant snowfall, while MultiCam Black is designed to offer domestic agencies a distinct and authoritative presence suited to law enforcement operations.

The MultiCam patterns were developed to provide maximum effectiveness across diverse operating environments with a minimum logistical burden. The patterns all have distinct roles but are designed to work together as a system to meet the needs of nearly any operating environment, all while helping the wearer do so with the least amount of kit possible.

multicam patterns

THE MULTICAM FAMILY OF PATTERNS CONSISTS OF:

MultiCam: The base – the original combat-proven pattern that offers the widest range of environmental effectiveness – ideally suited for apparel & gear that must be employed throughout mixed or varied environments.

MultiCam Arid: A pattern intended for open sand and rock – ideally suited for apparel when working exclusively in bright open desert terrain.

MultiCam Tropic: A pattern intended for deep verdant jungle use – ideally suited for apparel when working exclusively in a dense jungle environment.

MultiCam Alpine: A pattern intended for snow-covered areas – ideally suited for over-garments and gear covers when/where snow cover is present.

MultiCam Black: While not a geographically-based pattern, MultiCam Black gives law enforcement groups a sharp and authoritative presence suited to domestic L.E. operations where projecting a strong and distinct image is a critical concern. MultiCam Black is designed to complement a wide range of existing armor and gear colors (for instance, green or black vests both look well-matched when paired with MultiCam Black uniforms).

Along with the release of the new patterns, MultiCamPattern.com has been updated.

Tactical Tailor now building in PenCott

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

Lakewood, WA — 05 NOV 13 – Tactical Tailor, supplier of rugged, 100% American-made tactical equipment to Warfighters around the world, is proud to announce it will be building equipment in the PenCott family of camouflage patterns.

The effectiveness camouflage should not gauged by popularity, nor aesthetic appeal. Camouflage is measured by its ability to mask shape and form to prevent detection. The successful use of camouflage—or its compromise—often determines mission success, mission failure and even mission completion. It is for this reason that Hyde Definition calls their patterns Mission Critical Camouflage, and it’s because of PenCott’s efficacy that TT added the Badlands and GreenZone variants to its equipment camo pattern options.

“We haven’t just looked at T&E results,” says Tactical Tailor’s GW Ayers, “We did our own research. We took it to the field and sent it overseas…the results are in. We need to offer PenCott.”

“Tactical Tailor makes some of the most rock solid and effective gear on the planet,” says Lawrence Holsworth, Hyde Definition’s Director of Business Development. “It’s a great honor to be working with them—and a testament to the effectiveness of PenCott’s patterns that they chose us.”

Hyde Definition’s family of patterns features a unique, hybrid, 3-in1 pattern geometry that is more organic and natural looking than typical camouflages. It provides superior concealment at all ranges. Founder Dominic Hyde realized the deficiencies of many such patterns years ago and set out to design a new pattern geometry that would be more effective and adaptable than any other patterns available.

“The PenCott patterns are enjoying great growth internationally,” Holsworth advises, “so teaming up with Tactical Tailor will help us consolidate and build on that success in the US market as well.”

Tactical Tailor will initially be offering equipment in BadLands (for dry, upland, bushland, semi-arid and transitional terrain) and GreenZone (for verdant temperate, tropical and semi-tropical operations). There are two other patterns, with a fifth in development: SandStorm (for arid, desert terrain) and SnowDrift (for snow and winter terrain). The last pattern is called MetroPolis. It’s an urban/industrial/low-light pattern scheduled for release in 2014.

“Sandstorm and SnowDrift are great patterns, no doubt,” Ayers continues, shading his eyes with a grin and looking into the distance. “and MetroPolis is intriguing. However, I can neither confirm nor deny we’ll be doing anything with those in the future.”

North Korean Camouflage In Action

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

ku-bigpic

This and other images of NK camouflage popped up on 2ch, Japan’s largest image board. This particular pattern is a “duck hunter” camo based on a Chinese pattern. Not all of their uniforms are this revealing, however. They also field a uniform with a pattern very similar to US Woodland BDUs for their special forces troops, and a few other odds and ends.

WG_Catalog_2014_s-15

Wrong Gear’s Warrior Masks are deeply inspired by the Arabian shemagh. They’re made of light weight 100% cotton with a polyester nose mesh area to wick away moisture and allow unrestricted breathing. Warrior Masks feature a high thread count and tight knit with custom colors specially made for Wrong Gear. The masks strap on using Velcro hook and loop. The versatility of Warrior Masks means they can be used as a face veil, sunshade/sand/dust cover, neck warmer, sweat mop, dust wipe, field towel, foot wrap, short rope, emergency bandage material, etc.

They’re hand cut and sewn in Los Angeles, and no two masks are exactly alike.
