Army Camouflage Improvement Effort Update

The letters have been sent…winners and losers, as well as an odd third category that we’ll cover, have been informed of their status and are quickly formulating plans of action.

We look forward to the Army (hopefully) making a formal announcement soon to disclose the finalists and their patterns.

We also fully expect to see a lot of new camouflage patterns hitting the market. Remember, just because a pattern wasn’t selected as a finalist doesn’t mean it isn’t viable. There were only so many spots available and the Army’s selections were based on their requirements. While we want to see the US Army choose the best family of patterns for their needs, we’ll report what we observe as the market judges the rest.

    We already have to live with the Mossy Oak vs Realtree Hardwoods fashion showdown in the Mall, right down to mom’s purse and Junior’s sneakers. Oh, boy, can’t wait for the ATACS vs Multicam flamewars.

    I’m reminded some units deliberately mixed different patterns to achieve more impact on the macro scale. It was literally their butt on the line, I’ll keep that in mind when tempted to pick one or the other. The Army institutional answer is still going to be one fitz all pattern on gear anyway, that’s going to cover the torso and head.

    A-TACS has pulled out of selection

    I bet that the Pencott family of patterns will blow away most competitors.

    Roggenwolf was not selected for further evaluation:

    “…You might recall that Roggenwolf Tiwazâ„¢ was developed specifically as a possible answer the U.S. Army’s identified need for a family of camouflage patterns. Unfortunately, we have been advised that Tiwazâ„¢ has been eliminated from the final down-select, and will no longer be a participant in the U.S. Army camouflage improvement effort.

    We know that this news will be just as disappointing to our supporters as it was to us. However, it must be said that we actually achieved more than we thought was possible, back in June; and that those achievements are largely due to the support and encouragement of our enterprise partners…”

      Keep up the good work, and hope to see more from you in the future.
