PenCott-BadLands™ camouflage features in upcoming “Halo: Nightfall” series

Scott Free Productions and 343 Industries Press Release, July 24, 2014:

San Diego Comic-Con - 343 Industries and Scott Free Productions gave show-goers and the Halo Nation a first look at “Halo: Nightfall”, the original live-action digital series executive produced by Ridley Scott set to release this November on Xbox.


Taking place between the events of “Halo 4″ and “Halo 5: Guardians”, “Halo: Nightfall” follows the original story of legendary manhunter Jameson Locke (Mike Colter) and his team as they are caught in a horrific terrorist attack while investigating terrorist activity on the distant colony world of Sedra. Led by Locke, the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) agents are forced to coordinate with a Sedran commander with a remarkable history and deep-rooted mistrust of ONI.


As the plot unravels, they’re drawn to an ancient, hellish artifact where they’re forced to fight for their survival, question everything, and ultimately choose between their loyalties and their lives. Agent Locke is a new character in the Halo universe poised to play a major role in “Halo 5: Guardians” releasing on Xbox One in 2015.

TRU-SPEC : Two New MultiCam Patterns Join TRU Line

Press Release, 24 July 2014:

TRU-SPEC®, one of the leading suppliers of uniforms and personal equipment to the military, law enforcement and public safety markets, has added the MultiCam Tropic™ and MultiCam Arid™ patterns, developed by Crye Precision, to their popular Tactical Response Uniform selections, designed to meet the unique needs of Tactical Professionals, Law Enforcement and Special Operations personnel operating in high-risk environments.

The MultiCam Arid™ pattern was developed to effectively reduce the visual and near-IR signature of a person operating in desert environments, which predominantly consist of open sand and rock. This particular palette compliments and overlaps portions of the main MultiCam® pattern; so pairing the apparel results in a well coordinated, functional concealment system.

The MultiCam Tropic™ pattern was developed to reduce the visual and near-IR signature of a person operating in dense jungle environments; areas that predominantly consist of lush vegetation that remains relatively unaffected by seasonal changes. Much like that of the MultiCam Arid™, the pattern’s palette compliments and overlaps portions of the main MultiCam® pattern; allowing for overlapping and coordination.

Camo Comparison – GreenZone, Tropic, Flecktarn, Mandrake

There are more new military and “military-grade” camouflage patterns around now than you can shake a stick at – particularly on the commercial market that was fueled by the US Army’s quest for a new family of patterns.

Unlike the US Army, you probably don’t have millions of dollars, state-of-the-art testing facilities and hundreds of soldiers at your disposal.  So, if you’re looking to make an informed, objective decision regarding selecting a new and more effective camouflage pattern for your AO then you need to see how well it might work for you.


Luckily, our friends at Pine Survey in Austria have done a nice survey of different patterns and fabrics under natural conditions.  See for yourself what their conclusions were: Pine Survey Camo Comparison.

Agilite’s NORSK “Mohawk” FAST helmet cover

Agilite has just released a variant of its Mohawk Ops Core FAST Helmet Cover in Norwegian Woodland Camo.  The Mohawk NORSK cover was designed specially for Norway’s Rigg As Tactical Group, a leading supplier of equipment to Norway’s Military.

Mohawk NORSK Square

Norway was the first country to adopt the Ops Core FAST Helmet on a wide-scale basis for regular troops.  The Mohawk NORSK is made with authentic Norwegian national camouflage pattern material, comes in two sizes, and will bring added helmet-borne functionality to Norwegian troops using the OpsCore FAST helment.

“We enjoyed working with Agilite on this project to allow us to provide another unique high quality tactical product to Norwegian forces. The combination of our experience with Norway’s Military, Law Enforcement and Security units and Agilite’s excellent level of design and manufacture not far from Europe, is always a winning combination.” said Joachim Riise, CEO of Rigg As Tactical Group.

UF PRO® “Silent Warrior” Sniper Smock and Trousers

Previously only available as a restricted, special item for European military and law enforcement special operations units, UF PRO is now offering their innovative, purpose-designed and built “Silent Warrior” Sniper Suit on the open market too.


The UF PRO® Silent Warrior Sniper Suit is designed to fulfill the highly demanding requirements of professional scouts and snipers.  As the functional, camouflaged outer-layer of a multiple-layer garment system, it has to provide all the specific features to support the user’s role;  it has to protect against the ingress of insects; and it has to provide superb camouflage and concealment performance in the visual and near-Infra-Red spectrum.


As the Silent Warrior suit is worn as an over garment it is tailored with a looser cut than UF PRO’s Striker XT BDU system, so that it can be easily adjusted to fit over different base, insulation, and wet weather protection layers.
