Why not top off the day with a trifecta of Camouflage news, and announce our next Camo Comparison!
Later next week, I’ll be heading down to Big Bend National Park with my friend Jack from The Survival Podcast to not only take the next round of comparison photos, but also to work on some collaboration articles we’ve been talking about doing.
This next comparison will forgo solid colors and feature MultiCam, Mirage, A-TACS, Pencott, Desert MARPAT, Woodland MARPAT, SAF Digital (Singapore), UCP (ACU), Three Color Desert, and Japanese Flecktarn.
We’ve been working closely with Rian Rossouw, who is well known in Camouflage circles, to bring on board some testing procedures that will not only evaluate the different camouflage uniforms on what you’d feel would work the best in the environment, but will also evaluate colors and micro/macro patterns.
We’re excited about the next round of testing, and can’t wait to bring you the results!
In other Camouflage news today, an A-TACS press release recently went out with the announcement that after many months of stage two development, their berry compliant Nylon Cordura fabric, webbing and hook and loop is now available for purchase.
A fantastic release, and something we’d never seen first hand with any camo pattern until SHOT Show this year, is printed loop velcro. A-TACS recently sent us over an exclusive uniform to use in our upcoming Camouflage Comparison that features the printed loop.
Be sure to click on the photos below and get a good view of how great the loop matches. It’s even better in person, as the photos don’t do it justice. [Read More…]
We received a press release yesterday from Dana over at Bulldog Tactical Equipment letting us know that the Venom Industries Website is now live.
Venom Industries is a sister site to Bulldog Tactical and was created to open another avenue of sales to not only the Military, Government and Law Enforcement, but civilians as well.
While there’s an excellent product line up already on the Venom Website, absent are their Mirage Camouflage uniforms for civilian sale, which according to Dana, are “still a possibility for the future.” While we at ITS understand their reasoning behind keeping uniforms restricted to select individuals, we know many were looking forward to their availability through Venom.
As we’ve previously mentioned, they have been releasing Mirage Camouflage fabric to vendors such as OC Tactical, and also carry select items in Mirage on the Venom site.
We’ll keep you posted with further developments on Mirage, which will again be included in our upcoming Camo Comparison and seemed to dominate Multicam in the environment of our last comparison.
I just received an email from Steve at A-TACS who informed me that the A-TACS pattern is officially available for Water Transfer Printing!
We’ve all been huge advocates of the A-TACS pattern here at ITS and are excited about all the ways its now being offered and getting hands on with it during our next Camo Comparison. I’ll definitely be sending some stuff in to get dipped in A-TACS and write up the results.
Dom over at Hyde Definition just sent us over the first public photo of the new PenCott colorways they’ve developed.
These were designed to address arid, mountain, urban, snow and low-light operational needs. They look fantastic and we can’t wait to see the production versions! You may remember PenCott from our Camouflage Comparison a few months back.
Dom will be attending the Internationale Waffen Ausstellung (IWA), an annual trade-show for the shooting, hunting and firearms industry taking place in Nuremberg, Germany, from the 12th to the 15th of March 2010 to promote Hyde Definition and the new concealment solutions.
The IWA is the second largest trade show of its kind behind the SHOT Show in the United States.
