  1. Great color, original and strong !

  2. LowSpeed says:

    They look cool and (most importantly) it looks like they’ll fulfill their functions. I really hope these catch on and police departments adopt em. I do have my doubts though; LE seems to have really taken to the military look with SRT/SWAT units adopting MARPAT, UCP, and even Multicam uniforms. I like that these color schemes/uniforms are different from our military uniforms, police are looking too militant or paramilitary as it is.

    • Chef Rigby says:

      Yes! This! Nobody likes seeing cops in camo, it conjures images of a police state and marshal law.

    • TMedina says:

      I’m glad I’m not the only one who blinked at the idea of “official camo patterns” for law enforcement agencies.

    • Bill says:

      You mean paramilitary, like with a dress blouse over a creased shirt and Class A trousers with a stripe and a uniform hat and service ribbons?

      We’ve had those for a while.

      About 80% of the jurisdiction I work is forested or rural. What would you suggest I wear during a surveillance or warrant service?

      • Kory Smith says:

        OD? Coyote? Sheriff brown? Khaki? There are many viable cheaper options than a camouflage pattern.

  3. AMMOkan says:

    Inb4 Why do police need camouflage.

    • straps says:

      Police may need to move freely and with minimal risk of observation to position themselves to observe and envelope one or more bad guys–or safeguard hostages/civilians when it’s too dangerous to move them (before bad guys have been neutralized). 95% of the time police want/need to be seen, 5% of the time camo is as important to a cop as it is to a Soldier.

      What you also want is a common appearance for the good guys–equipment and attire that distinguishes good guys from everyone else. News flash, bad guys ALSO wear camouflage, you want YOUR camo to be distinctive. ATACS, in conjunction with distinctive equipment, weapons and PPE can prevent fratricide.

      • Lance R. Peak says:

        If civilian LE want to blend in then their camouflage should be car grills, street signs, and picket fences.

        I thought a uniform with badge and duty gear was a common uniform already?

        I am honestly not trying to be a smart ass, and I’ve worked both EMS and LE before myself, but I really can’t see any time when civilian LE would need camouflage.

        • SSD says:

          I received this from a buddy. I find it an excellent response to your question.

          NY State SWAT wears MultiCam. They do so because a large majority of the state is wooded and they man-track armed suspects almost every day… HRT also wears MultiCam as they do much the same on a federal level. They also field Ranger Green…

      • Chef Rigby says:

        Ahhh, so you’re saying that next time I want to go commit my crimes I should wear Multicam?

    • SSD says:

      Are you police?

      • AMMOkan says:

        Military, and I was making fun of the people who go off on a tangent about LE not needing camo.

  4. mr bean says:

    How about companies make a pair of pants that fit well and accept Crye kneepads and don’t cost more than $70 instead of making dumb camoflauge, that’d be so nice.

    LE doesn’t want more black clothing. Besides I already have these colored items, you too can have it by washing your clothes several times.

    • SSD says:

      There’s no way there will be a $70 pant that accepts Crye knee pads. Crye holds a patent and in order to accept their pads a vendor would need to license the patent. That is going to drive the cost up. Crye has a new LE pant coming that will be less expensive than the G3 combat pant.

  5. Eddie Munster says:

    I will take a look. As long as the material is not that Poly/Cotton blend that is common to some Propper products. That stuff is horrible for color fastness. I have had new uniforms with that blend fade even before washing, resulting in shiny white polyester polyester fibers visable across the material. “Milspec NYCO or nothing” has become my motto.

    • SteveB says:

      I agree with EM about the poly-cotton. It’s stiff, breathes poorly, pills, and the camo colors wear-off. 50/50 nyco cordura rip-stop is the way to go, period.

  6. Stefan S. says:

    This is my last warning

  7. Kory S says:

    Reminds me of Indonesian Doreng Layar.

  8. Mike says:

    I find it hilarious the people spit such vitriol and hatred over Multicam Black but they think ATACS LE looks legit. Interesting, indeed.

    I think all these dark camos have their place. In the meantime I’ll raise my glass to the “there’s no black in nature” crowd who are now drooling over all these black variants. Silly /k/ommandos.

  9. Bill says:

    There’s plenty of black in nature: night, shadows, some bears, forest soils…besides, I thought Coyote was the new Black, and gray/Wolf was the new Coyote.

    • Mike says:

      I agree entirely. My point is that I know too many people who parrot what someone said about “no black in nature”, which I totally disagree with, and are simultaneously the first to cheer for Typhon, ATACS LC, Multicam Black, etc

  10. DBACK028 says:

    I know this is all about A-TACS and whatnot but since it’s also about release dates…when can we expect to be able to purchase the new varients of multicam? I’ve been waiting expecting Propper or Tru-Spec to put up something soon but I’m still waiting. Didn’t know if you guys knew.

  11. DBACK028 says:

    btw I’ve seen multicam black…but not tropic, arid, or alpine

  12. Retro hooper says:

    People also need to realize that when the police lawfully enter a home, or are doing a major bust, camo can have a very intimidating effect on the bad guys, which is one reason why these black camo patterns are out. However, I really prefer that civilian police do not use military issue patterns when on duty. The people are already ticked off about the police being more militarized, and it can make the civilians look at anyone who wears camo for a living (service members like myself and others) with fear or scorn. Other than that, they should be able to wear any other pattern they like if the situation calls for it. Also, not all police are ex military, and I don’t like people that haven’t earned the right to wear our patterns thinking they have.

    • Freeman says:

      Um, lots of people wear camo. Camo is not like a dress uniform, it has a very practical purpose for a lot of people (such as hunters), and it is the first thing issued to any military recruit (not exactly earned). Anyway, why does it matter if police uniforms are camouflaged? Police uniforms have always been inspired by military dress. Just look at state troopers and their brown rounds.

  13. Ryan says:

    We are very excited about this new pattern and A-TACS Camo has pledged to donate a portion of sales to fund Safety Equipment Grants through the Spirit of Blue Foundation.

  14. wendy says:

    Hello how are you guys ….um do you donated any camouflage uniforms? We are putting on a youth jam and we are need some camouflage uniform donate for our youth jam…if you do if you don’t please contact me ….thank you do much
