IWA – UR Tactical Showcases New PenCott-MetroPolis Camouflage Pattern At IWA

Friday, March 3rd, 2017


Hong Kong based tactical gear and clothing one-stop-shop UR Tactical will among the first global retailers to showcase the new MetroPolis® camouflage pattern from Hyde Definition®.

The MetroPolis® pattern was created by Dom Hyde based on the well-proven and widely-used PenCott® pattern. MetroPolis® is specifically optimized for industrial / built-up environments, and low-light / night operations.

The unique color palette of MetroPolis® was derived from an extensive analysis of scientific research by NATO and the US military forces. Hyde also took direct input from elite military and police special operations professionals with recent operational experience in built-up areas.

MetroPolis® incorporates all of the features that make the PenCott® patterns the most advanced and effective concealment solutions on the market today, and joins the existing family of GreenZone®, BadLands®, SnowDrift®, and SandStorm®.

UR Tactical will be featuring samples of their OPS Series “Stealth Warrior Pants” and “Integrated Battle Shirt 2.0” in the MetroPolis® camouflage pattern at their IWA booth – Hall 9, stand #133.

    IWA – Two New Patterns Join PenCott Camo Family Of Patterns: Wildwood And MetroPolis

    Thursday, March 2nd, 2017

    Helikon-Tex (Hall 9, Stand #222) is exhibiting two new Camo patterns in Hyde Definition’s PenCott family of camouflage patterns; Wildwood and Metropolis.




    Wildwood was developed at the request of Polish Special Forces, through a deep collaboration between Hyde Definition and Helikon-Tex. It is optimized for the moderate climate woodland areas of Central and Eastern Europe and was created by adjusting the tonal values of GreenZone by adding more brown shades, and de-saturating the bright green.




    The result of 5 years of development effort, MetroPolis is optimized for industrial / built-up environments, and low-light / night operations. The overall tone of MetroPolis is lighter than many other ‘urban’ patterns because lighter colors darken in low light levels, but still maintain disruption and blending performance. Patterns which use predominantly dark colors tend to ‘blob out’ under low light conditions, which lessens their performance. The unique color palette of MetroPolis was derived from an extensive analysis of scientific research by NATO and the US military forces.

    Slangvel Is Still The Source For Custom M43 Caps

    Sunday, February 26th, 2017

    Slangvel is a custom hat maker who specializes in modern-era military headwear. He is also a disabled Veteran. Somehow he comes up with some great camouflage fabrics and every once in a while he catches my eye with something like this French Lizard Pattern. One of his specialties is the M43-style cap, which has been adopted at one time or another by several armies. In fact, they are still used by the Germans.


    In addition to M43s, Slangvel also makes Boonies, Rhodesian-style kepis, Bigeards, Helmet Covers and the occasional Smock. To keep track of what he has for sale, follow him on Facebook or eBay.
