We reported back before the show that this year there was a huge increase in the number of companies that would be featuring products in PenCott™ patterns on their booths. And indeed, visitors to IWA 2015 certainly would have seen plenty of it – as this round-up shows below.
In no special order, here is a run-down on all the PenCott™ products that were on display in Nuremburg.
New things on their booth this year were the ventilated CPU Boonie Hat and the PCS Smock – both items were displayed in the GreenZone™ pattern.

Making its debut as a full, stand-alone brand under the Helikon-Tex stable, the Direct Action team displayed the full range of their gear designed for professional special operations forces end-users. Interestingly, they are only offering two camouflage patterns; GreenZone™ and MultiCam®.

A small company from a small country – but very big on innovation and quality – UF PRO rolled out their latest developments at IWA 2015. Included on the display were their ‘Hunter Sweater’ and ‘SmallPac Monsoon’ in GreenZone™ and the new and improved ‘HT’ version of their ‘Striker’ BDU pants and shirt in BadLands™.

ZentauroN (German for ‘Centaur’) produce a wide range of equipment and bags for a variety of applications. Their range includes products for military and law enforcement, civil protection and security, search and rescue, outdoor pursuits and sports.
Well know for their Vulcan Plate Carrier system (seen below) which is in use with German special forces, ZentauroN recently developed a new Multi-Mission Plate Carrier / Body Armor System for the Italian ‘Incursori’ special forces.
They also recently launched the Vulcan and a number of their other core military products in Hyde Definition’s PenCott-GreenZone™ camouflage pattern.
The Optimal Performance System (OPS) brand was stablished in 2005 and has become a fairly well-known international tactical gear brand.
The OPS brand continuously pursues creativity and quality in product development and uses only genuine and first-quality materials to ensure the durability of their offering and the protection of the user. To date, OPS customers include troops deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, Law Enforcement SWAT Teams and Private Security Companies. OPS products also featured in the ‘Terminator 4’ movie.
OPS added the GreenZone™ and BadLands™ colorways from Hyde Definition’s PenCott™ camo family to their line-up a while back, and they’ve been building up a nice full portfolio of PenCott™ products rapidly since. Most recently, they released one of their most eagerly awaited PenCott™ products – their very popular ‘Gen2 Ultimate Direct Action Pants’. Already available in GreenZone™, watch out for BadLands™ to follow soon.
