    “What do you think?”

    I think that a camoed rifle, and Coyote/Tan holster and gloves will make a big difference. It is going to be interesting to see Kryptek and ODG releasing their patterns for purchase and see what the market decides.

      I’m thinking that the black rifle and gloves are there to first attract the eye then offer some (intentional) contrast.

      If the camo works TOO well you’ll take no time to ponder its effectiveness…

    definitely a cool ad and i dig the kryptek stuff. however im most interested in what rifle that is, anyone know?

    Great patterns for a wide variety of environments and situations. They are straight shooters over there, good to work with!

    I don’t see how they can accurately claim that is has been “rigorously tested by the US Government”. They should say, “Will be rigorously tested…”

    I think I’d like to see the Crye entry.

    • Greg says:

      The crye entery is or was a desert version of MultiCam, and the supposed woodland version wasn’t that different from MC now. Just with a bit more green like ATACS FG.

  6. Greg says:

    Cost and effectiveness, in another words it probably works too well and likely over priced because it looks really advanced (perhaps too advanced) But it is a pretty good looking camo for outdoor sport shooting i.e. airsoft, paintball and other novel activities, or maybe adoption by another military perhaps. Adding that the current budget for the military (army espescialy) it would be wise not to blow more than the cash you have on the latest and greatest flashy new toy and might settle for something just as good for half the price and keeps within current looks.

    I’m very curious to see how this pattern performs in field trials against the others. I can’t help but think that some of those sections of geometric “honeycomb” and “feather” shapes are going to work against them at close range.

    I’m also very curious to see if the Army will even adopt and field whatever new Family of Camouflage patterns comes out best in the competition. Don’t forget, they’re going to first conduct a cost-benefit analysis before making a decision, and they have to have budget set aside for a re-fit of uniforms and gear – which apparently isn’t in the 2012 budget, and may not be in the 2013 one either.

    So, who wants to bet that they stick with the UCP / OCP (MultiCam) combo for the foreseeable future, but expand the deployment of OCP beyond Afghanistan?
