IWA – Two New Patterns Join PenCott Camo Family Of Patterns: Wildwood And MetroPolis

Helikon-Tex showcased two new PenCott camouflage patterns, WildWood® and MetroPolis®, at IWA 2017.

WildWood® was developed at the request of Polish Special Forces, through a deep collaboration between Hyde Definition and Helikon-Tex. It is optimized for the moderate climate woodland areas of Central and Eastern Europe and was created by adjusting the tonal values of GreenZone® by adding more brown shades, and de-saturating the bright green.  WildWood® is also compatible with GreenZone® clothing and gear – making it ideal for users who’ve already invested in GreenZone®. WildWood® pattern garments and gear will be available exclusively through Helikon-Tex.

IMG_9924-440x557IMG_9921-440x820MetroPolis® is optimized for industrial / built-up environments, and low-light / night operations. The overall tone of MetroPolis® is lighter than many other ‘urban’ patterns because lighter colors darken in low light levels, but still maintain disruption and blending performance. Patterns which use predominantly dark colors tend to ‘blob out’ under low light conditions, which lessens their performance. The pattern’s unique color palette was derived from an extensive analysis of scientific research by NATO and the US military forces.  MetroPolis® is the result of 5 years of development effort by Hyde Definition Ltd.

IMG_9923-440x604IMG_9922-440x816Both WildWood® and MetroPolis® incorporate all of the key features and advantages of the PenCott® family of patterns:

  • 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 – and, because of its non-linear orientation, the full effectiveness of the pattern is retained whether the wearer is standing, kneeling or prone, within cover or in the open.
  • Depth + Blending + Disruption: the combination of multi-sized fractal shapes, high-difference boundary layers and a hypoacuitively dithered micro-pattern creates the illusion of depth, whilst also creating a pattern that both blends into the terrain and disrupts the shape of the wearer.
  • Natural tones and textures: the complex organic pattern texture, combined with colors sampled from the target environments, delivers superior disruption and blending across a wider range of terrain and distances than other patterns.

MetroPolis® and WildWood® join the existing family of GreenZone®, BadLands®, SnowDrift®, and SandStorm®.

UF PRO® – Monsoon Rain Shirt®

UF PRO® has introduced a new addition to their Monsoon waterproof range – the new Monsoon Rain Shirt® .

monsoon_rain_shirt_greenzone

The lightweight, low bulk Monsoon Rain Shirt® from UF PRO® is specifically designed to be worn underneath a plate carrier, chest rig or other load-bearing gear. It’s made out of a special laminate mix, which makes the jacket thin, breathable and lightweight where it is covered with gear and very robust and extra durable wherever it is not.

monsoon_rain_shirt_laminates

Exposed areas, like shoulders, lower back and sleeves are made out of a robust and durable 3-layer laminate. The rest of the jacket is made out of an extremely lightweight and low bulk 2.5-layer laminate. Both laminates are based on a super breathable and reliably waterproof high-tech membrane. For better wear comfort and reduced risk of secondary fragments, there are no pockets or zipper pulls in the torso area.

monsoon_rain_shirt_airpacs

In order to avoid the formation of so called “thermal bridges“ between your skin and the outside air, the Monsoon Rain Shirt has built-in air/pac inserts in the shoulder area. These 8mm thick mesh inserts give you the necessary insulation between your skin and the outside temperature and thus prevent cold air to transfer from the outside to your skin. Due to their 3D foam structure, the air/pac inserts also distribute the weight of plate carriers or rucksacks.

monsoon_rain_shirt_hood_harness

For unhindered vision and uncompromised hearing, the jacket has a special integrated hood system called the Hood/Harness. The harness comfortably connects your head to the hood and follows your head movements, allowing you unhindered vision in extreme weather conditions. And since there is no strapping needed, the space between your head and the laminate is kept clear for air circulation and doesn’t limit your hearing.

monsoon_rain_shirt_The Monsoon Rain Shirt® is currently available in PenCott-GreenZone® camouflage and in Brown-Grey.

The Monsoon Rain Shirt® is entirely made in Europe from premium, US and European military-grade, field-proven fabrics combined with UF PRO’s unique advanced lamination technology and design aesthetic.

UF PRO ‘STRIKER STEALTH SMOCK’ NOW AVAILABLE!

Limited quantities were made, so get one while they last!

UF PRO’s goal with the new Striker Stealth Smock was to design a combat jacket that not only allows you to stow a lot of gear, but that is also extremely comfortable to wear when it is fully loaded.  The result is not only a new smock, its a completely new load carriage system. With its modular pocket configuration, the Striker Stealth Smock can hold up to 15kg of gear, and its integrated load bearing system distributes and carries the weight more comfortably and stable when the smock is loaded up.

greenzone-striker-stealth-smock

The pocket configuration is another key element of the Stealth Smock. With an integrated PALS system it allows the set up of at least 4 pouches*, and with the built-in 7 pockets it provides sufficient space for storing all your essential gear for a short term mission.

*The UF PRO® Stealth pouches are not included and can be ordered separately.
