What Do We Have Here?

This photo was recently released by the Department of Defense. It looks like he’s wearing CADPAT but not sure why. Maybe he’s playing OPFOR or maybe he just wants some camouflage that actually works.

PenCott Camouflage Shows Up On ‘House Of Cards’

Friday, March 20th, 2015

Hyde Definition’s PenCott BadLands and GreenZone camouflage patterns are featured in the latest season of ‘House of Cards’. The full release can be read below, and beware, there are some spoilers:

1

Hyde Definition’s cutting-edge PenCott-BadLands™ and PenCott-GreenZone™ camouflage patterns continue to show up in interesting places – this time they are featured in Season 3 of the award-winning Netflix drama “House of Cards”.

Caution, this announcement carries a SPOILER ALERT…

Seen in a crucial and dramatic segment of Season 3; PenCott™ camouflage patterns are seen in use by ‘Russian’ soldiers taking part in a peacekeeping mission in the Middle East. The Russian soldiers are seen wearing BadLands™ uniforms, whereas GreenZone™ uniforms are worn by the Russian officers and by Russian President Petrov. All of the PenCott camouflage uniforms used are the CPU (Combat Patrol Uniform) model made by Polish company Helikon-Tex.

In the latter part of Chapter 36, US President Underwood and Russian President Petrov hold a secret meeting in the Jordan Valley to try and resolve a crisis concerning the peacekeeping mission there. In the segment President Underwood (played by Emmy Award winning actor Kevin Spacey) wears an OCP/MultiCam ACU, and President Petrov (played by Danish actor Lars Mikkelsen – renowned for his roles in ‘The Killing’ and ‘Sherlock’) wears a GreenZone™ CPU.

As real Russian Army ‘Digital-Flora’ uniforms are hard to come by, the ‘House of Cards’ costume department selected GreenZone™ and BadLands™ pattern uniforms as stand-ins. Together with help from their retail partners, and with MMI Textiles also helping to supply some spare fabric, Hyde Definition and Helikon-Tex were able to rapidly assemble the sizes and quantities of uniforms and caps that were needed and deliver them in time to meet a tight filming schedule.

Off Shore A-TACS Fabrics Announcement

Monday, February 23rd, 2015

Schott Performance Fabrics and Digital Concealment Systems
announce the addition of off-shore produced A-TACS Camo fabrics

(null)

In response to growing worldwide demand, Digital Concealment Systems and Schott Performance Fabrics are pleased to announce that in addition to their full range of U.S. produced Berry Amendment compliant A-TACS Camo fabrics, they are now offering a full range of A-TACS Camo fabrics produced off-shore. These fabrics are produced to the same exacting standard as the U.S.-produced fabrics and are made available to international and domestic manufacturers who do not require Berry Amendment compliant goods for their production. Available fabrics include a full compliment of Nylon, Cotton, Poly/Cotton and Polyester goods in a varity of fabric weights and construction.

Many international manufacturers of A-TACS Camo products now have the option to source their fabrics ‘closer to the cutter’. This will allow for shorter lead times and significantly lower fabric costs. It also affords significant savings on international shipping and material costs for the end gear manufacturer.

This new option also benefits European and Asian manufacturers who sell in non-military channels. Now they have the option to source GENUINE A-TACS Camo fabrics at a lower cost. This option also benefits many smaller manufacturers, especially with low minimum order requirements on fabric–and it will replace the poorly made, poorly constructed counterfeit fabric that is currently on the market.

Counterfeit camouflage fabrics have been a problem for every major camouflage brand since the beginnings of the industry. Cheaply and poorly produced overseas pattern knock-offs are a continuing issue for everyone from Crye Precision, to the US Goverment, to us here at DCS. Each time a counterfeiter is pursued through legal channels, a new one pops up, perpetuating the problem. This new fabric option will allow manufacturers currently engaged in producing A-TACS Camo gear using poor quality counterfeit fabrics the option to switch over and begin using legitimately produced A-TACS Camo fabrics. Schott Performance Fabrics is the ONLY legitimate source for genuine A-TACS Camo fabrics. If the fabric was purchased from anywhere else, it is the product of a counterfeiter.

In the coming months, Digital Concealment Systems will be ramping up it’s legal pursuit of both manufactures and retailers engaged in the production and sale of counterfeit items in A-TACS Camo. Additionally, DCS will also be calling out manufacturers and retailers dealing in and manufacturing counterfeit A-TACS Camo gear.
