Maybe, Just Maybe, The Army Has Figured Out What To Do With All Of That UCP

Monday, May 23rd, 2016

Used to be, the Marines got all of the Army’s hand me downs. Times are tough and the budget situation is bleak. What with UCP being used as a background image for Marine Corps Systems Command’s website, makes you wonder.

SixKa Brand By 707 Tactical Gear Now Featuring PenCott Camo Clothing And Boots

Wednesday, May 11th, 2016

Although fabrics in the PenCott family of advanced camouflage patterns have been printed in the USA since July 2011, finished products in the patterns have been harder to obtain in the Americas than they have in Europe – especially garments.

SixKa

That situation has begun to noticeably improve this year, and there is also now a US-based company making a wide range of tactical clothing and boots in PenCott camouflage patterns. That company is 707 Tactical Gear out of Miami, Florida with their SixKa brand of tactical garments and gear. 707 Tactical Gear designs products specifically to their clients requests and cuts-and-sews them from U.S.-made milspec materials in their wholly owned factories in Mexico.

Speed-Tac 9 PENCOTT

707 Tactical Gear provided the first sneak-peak look at SixKa products in PenCott patterns at the SHOT Show. Now they are going into full production with a range of tactical garments and boots in the PenCott GreenZone and BadLands camo patterns.

All PenCott camouflage fabrics are made and printed in the USA to US Army Milspec standards and include robust, comfortable and highly fade resistant, vat-dyed, Cordura brand Nylon-Cotton ripstop and ultra-strong, abrasion resistant, acid-dyed Cordura brand nylon.

  • Eon 6k Combat Pants
  • Eon 6k Combat Shirt
  • 707 Camo BDU Pants
  • Advanced Tactical Shirt
  • Speed-Tac 9 Boot
  • D-Force Boot
  • 707 Tactical Gear will be displaying an even wider range of their SixKa brand products at the NTOA Conference and Exhibition at the end of August, and this will include additional products, such as:

  • SixKa Combat Pant
  • Classic Gear Shirt
  • TESTAC Multicap
  • Kourass Vest Carrier
  • Nomad Chest Rig
  • Recon Fanny Pouch
  • You can view full product details, download a PDF catalog, or place an order at www.sixkausa.com.

    The PenCott family of camouflage patterns was developed by Dom Hyde of Hyde Definition Ltd. in response to the US Army’s Camouflage Improvement Initiative. The patterns have since gone on to achieve considerable commercial success and have also been in use with many of the western world’s top military and law enforcement special operations forces. PenCott camouflage fabrics and trims are stocked and distributed globally by MMI Textiles in Westlake, Ohio.

    Warrior West – Canadian Urban Environment Type III

    Monday, May 9th, 2016

    Here you can see Hyperstealth’s Guy Cramer wearing their Urban Environment Type III developed for a Canadian requirement which originated in 2009 by the Department of National Defence, Defence Research and Development Canada – Suffield, (DRDC-S) in Alberta to develop a Canadian Urban Environment Pattern (CUEPAT) based on the unique requirements of Canada’s three major metropolitan areas, Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal. CUEPAT was intended for use on CBRNE suits.


    Back in 2012, we showed you their developmental Types I & II.

    Both are seen here along with arid coloration samples (CUEPAT 2 is left, CUEPAT 1 is right). While Types I amd II were meant for use in highly urbanized areas, the Type III at the top is tuned for use in the suburbs where concrete transitions to greenway.
