Announcing PenCott-BlackOps™

With our innovative PenCott™ family of patterns Hyde Definition aims to provide the most effective multi-environment camouflage schemes available on the commercial and military markets. 

BW_PenCott logo VERDANA_square edgeThe PenCott™ patterns are unique in the way they combine the best of analogue and digital camouflage design principles, and include the following unique features and advantages:

  • 3-in-1 / 360° pattern geometry – the inclusion of large, medium and small fractal shapes makes the patterns effective at close, mid, and long range.
  • Depth + Blending + Disruption – the combination of multi-sized fractal shapes, high-difference boundaries and hypoacuitive dithering creates the illusion of depth and disrupts the shape of the wearer.
  • Complex tones and textures – the complex pattern textures and tones deliver superior disruption and blending performance than other patterns.
