IWA – Kryptek Altitude Pattern

Sunday, March 6th, 2016

Kryptek is displaying garments in their new Altitude pattern.

Your prey takes form as a mist shrouded shape on a distant ridge. Above the tree line where the air is thin and cover is sparse, you need a camouflage that allows you to close the gap and retake the high ground.

One way to spot fakes is to look for the pattern’s name embedded in officially licensed Kryptek garments. If it’s not there, it’s not real.

Enforce Tac – Tactical Trim / FibroTex

Thursday, March 3rd, 2016


Tactical Trim is a Berlin company and is displaying their wares in another Berliner’s booth, TAC WRX. Tactical Trim represents the Israeli company FibroTex and their camouflage capabilities are some of the most exciting things I’ve seen at Enforce Tac. Above on the left is the Nightwalker suit which is a lightweight (550g) overgarment that can quickly be donned to provide IR suppression in the 3,000Nm-5,000Nm and 8,000Nm-12,000Nm ranges. It’s also breathable. Below, you can see the face veil made from the same material. To help protect the eyes from detection through the slits, they recommend wearing eye pro.


Offering full spectrum camouflage, FibroTex is vertically integrated. They not only mill their own fabric, but print it as well as manufacturing finished soft goods under the Fightex line which include such items as reversible uniforms.


They offer dual-sided printed fabrics as seen here in this hooped sniper’s hide bivy. Not only will they print different visual patterns but they’ll also use their library of patterns and reflectivity data to offer the correct level of reflectivity in the IR and UV spectrums as well. And that capability may differ per side. Everything they do is bespoke.


They are also displaying a FibroTex Ghillie suit.  The uniform is FR and in the new Dutch pattern.

Canadian Researcher Richard Webster Works On Disruptive Camouflage

Friday, February 26th, 2016

According to Exchange Magazine, an Ontario, Canada-based publication, Carleton University researcher Richard Webster has been researching Disruptive Camouflage, including how the wings of a moth are disrupted to conceal their overall shape. The intent of this research is to prove his thesis that disruptive camouflage is more effective in overall survival rate than background matching. Webster’s research led to an invitation to speak to the Canadian Department of National Defence’s Soldier Systems Unit.

TWN Industries Releases Highly Anticipated A-TACS iX Pattern

Sunday, February 21st, 2016


PRINCETON, FL – February 18, 2016 – TWN Industries Inc., the leading Water Transfer Printing supplier, releases A-TACS iX (Intermediate Xtreme) Camo hydrographic pattern. This is the first in a new generation of camouflage patterns from Digital Concealment Systems. A-TACS iX is the flagship pattern in a new “X series” line of camouflage patterns from DCS–what will become a complete multi-environmental concealment solution. A-TACS iX utilizes the very latest in printing and camouflage design technology combined with the perfect blend of colors from the already popular A-TACS AU and FG camouflage patterns to create a pattern with vastly improved depth and definition. A-TACS iX Camo also incorporates enhanced edge detail in the transitional areas between light and shadow within the pattern to create the added illusion of depth while maintaining the unique A-TACS Camo “pattern within a pattern” concept. New A-TACS iX Camo is best suited for transitional environments with a blended mix of intermediate greens and desert tans.

Soon, DCS will follow the launch of its new iX pattern with running changes to the already popular AU and FG variants to further integrate them into the “X” series of camouflage patterns. For more information, visit A-TACS Camo online at or, contact Clint Hoover at

A-TACS iX water transfer printing film is available exclusively through TWN Industries, Inc. Three meter accessory packs are available immediately. Part number for A-TACS iX is WTP-854. To find a TWN Certified Decorator who can decorate products for you or to purchase film, call 305-258-9622.
