Let’s be blunt: there’s definitely some overlap between the demographic that consumes Mountain Dew soda, and the demographic that owns a fair bit of products covered in hunting camouflage. Still, it’s a bit surreal to see the MD logo plastered on Lost Camo XD pattern camouflage, even if that logo is also logically plastered on a cooler. Then again, this is the soda that had a licensing deal with Kryptek a while back.

Wish the upcoming release of ‘Rogue One’ we thought it was a good time to share this Star Wars inspired Camo pattern.
If you’re curious where it comes from, it’s actually part of a bed sheet set; that’s right, you can sleep on this pattern!
For a limited time, Source Hydration is offering the Rider, Kangaroo, Tactical 3L, and Razor hydration packs in German Flecktarn Desert and Woodland.
Los Angeles, CA (August 2016) – Mechanix Wear is proud to present The Original, FastFit and M-Pact tactical gloves in Woodland camouflage. Mechanix Wear has partnered with 1947, LLC to bring you Woodland camouflage tactical gloves with a 60% larger disruptive pattern and improved irregularity to prevent the camouflage from blotting at distance in the field.
Woodland camouflage combines irregular markings in green, brown, black, and sand to effectively disguise the wearer in mountainous regions with varying vegetation. The integration of Woodland camouflage into Mechanix Wear tactical gloves expand our line of color-ways and camo patterns for military professionals operating in mountainous

You may have went to the theater to watch the new movie, “Suicide Squad”. Although it’s not prominently featured in the movie, you may have noticed an interesting camouflage pattern worn by the SEALs. Referred to as Bravoflauge, it was reportedly created by combining four different existing patterns.
According to SSD (and TFB) friend Spartan117GW, Vance and Brown may be introducing a cap on the pattern soon.
A reader sent in a pic of a Roark Revival ‘Fear The Sea’ mesh snapback hat they found at Sun Diego Board Shop in Mission Beach, San Diego. The hat itself is a “premium trucker hat”, with front panel “Fear the Sea” patch, adjustable snapback, and foam front and mesh back. What’s of real interest is the camo pattern, and how it differs from the one presented on the company’s website. This in-store variant sports an interesting blended woodland-esque pattern, however the example shown on the website is clearly different:
The example on the site (in the ‘Cam-Cam’ variant) shows a pattern that has more than a passing resemblance to Brookwood Transitional pattern. If I saw a hat more like the one on the site, I’d pick it up in a heartbeat. I don’t wear trucker caps very well, but Brookwood’s camo patterns are pretty cool.
Thanks to A.J. for the tip!

Literally the only soda you can’t see while innawoods; well, maybe that Kryptek Mountain Dew would work as well…
Shinesty’s Rogue Gentleman Camo Dress Suit is 100% polyester composite, and features a camo pattern which will allow you to blend into a wooded environment while looking sharply dressed; sorry to say in the business world you’d stick out like a sore thumb, but, hey, you can’t win ’em all.
A reader has sent in info on an interesting camouflage shirt they procured at the Tahoe Hemp Company in Tahoe, CA. The shirt is made of 55/45 Hemp/Organic Cotton, hand-dyed by Divine Tribe in their proprietary Cannaflage pattern. The camo itself is reminiscent of digital Woodland, with cannabis leaves interspersed within the pattern. The reader claims the heavy, natural fibers allow the shirt to work well as a base layer, and although it took several washings to cut down on the scratchy texture, the shirt keeps warm when its cool, cool when its warm, and has great moisture wicking attributes.
Thanks to ‘JL’ for the tip and pics!
Featuring the use of Helikon-Tex CPUs in PenCott-BadLands camouflage pattern, Halo: Nightfall will become a feature-length film scheduled to release on March 17 this year for DVD, Blue-ray and on digital channels including iTunes.

For this (I Can’t Believe It’s Not) MultiCam Monday, we’re reposting an old classic from three years ago. Why is it always during Halloween that the MultiCam ripoffs come out of the woodwork?
Available at Target, the boy’s Army Command Costume consists of two pieces, the uniform and helmet. It’s made from 70% polyester and is available in small, medium and large sizes. My favorite aspect of this costume is the ‘Army’ tag; it’s a nice touch that lets other people know: “Yes, I am pretending to be an Army Commando this fine Halloween’s night. Candy, please!” There’s also something familiar about the camouflage that I can’t quite put my finger on…
This costume USMC Cover I found today on sale at a Halloween supply store features a camo pattern that is very reminiscent of Crye precision’s standard MultiCam. As expected from a costume piece, it features a few defects, however it’s a pretty decent piece especially for the five dollars I got it for.
5.11 Tactical came up with their own ‘gun camo’, which is a camouflage-inspired design that uses the silhouettes of more than a few popular and/or iconic firearms. This cap in particular, which features the pattern, is made from polyester fabric with a dobby mesh six panel design, adjustable fit, and integrated sweatband.
The 5.11 Gun Camo Cap seems to be the only product currently available on the official 5.11 Tactical website that uses the Gun Camo, however they’ve also done a line of beanies, also available in Brown and Grey, that are available from numerous online retailers.
These images were sent to us by TFB reader Case Jumper via Facebook. They’re of a Mandalorian (that’s Boba Fett’s race for those not in the know) armor that’s been given the ole Crye treatment. Great stuff Case! You can see more on his Facebook profile page, linked above.
CamoTrading.com is a website that sells hundreds of wildlife-themed home decor and clothing items. Everything from camo bedding to glasswear to handbags and more is on offer, in camouflages such as Realtree AP. They also sell other hunting themed items, such as deer clocks, a shotgun shell bird feeder, and camo cooking utensils.
Just in case that whole Scorpion thing with printers blows up in their face, I suggest PEO Soldier take a hard look at MultiDoge as a backup plan.

Under Armour’s Mobtown basketball shoe features a slim athletic cut designed to offer better mobility by eliminating the bulk of extra fabric. The camouflage upper, called Dune (it’s not licensed MultiCam, but it’s certainly inspired by Crye’s pattern), is made from water-resistant canvas. The ultra-soft collar lining and full-length Micro G sockliner make up the inside of the shoe.
Also available with a Black full-grain leather upper.
