I’ve never really covered it before, but this is the AT-X for Arctic Tundra from A-TACS Camo. So far Tactical Concealment Systems, FirstSpear, Tru-Spec and a few smaller custom shops have adopted this winter pattern.
A-TACS Camo to Preview Their New A-TACS iX and A-TACS AT-X Camo Patterns for Manufacturers at the IWA Show in GermanyMonday, March 2nd, 2015
Coming in 2015…DCS will begin introducing their new “X” series of camo patterns starting with the new A-TACS iX (Intermediate Xtreme) Camo pattern followed by the A-TACS AT-X (Arctic Tundra) Camo pattern. They will be previewing these new patterns exclusively to their Manufacturing partners at the upcoming IWA Show in Nuremberg, Germany March 6 – 9, 2015. Stay tuned for more updates prior to the release of these two new patterns in the line-up!
announce the addition of off-shore produced A-TACS Camo fabrics
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.

Meet him at IWA Show in Nuremberg, Germany – March 7-10, 2014
Digital Concealment Systems welcomes Clint Hoover to the team. In his first outing representing A-TACS Camo, Clint will be attending the upcoming IWA Show in Nuremberg, Germany in March of this year where he will be visiting with our international brand partners and developing new relationships within the industry. Clint brings over 25 years of practical military experience to DCS, having joined the U.S. Army in 1987. After completing Basic Training, Advanced Individual Training, Airborne school and the Ranger Indoctrination Program, he was awarded his Ranger Beret, Ranger Scroll and served as a Special Operations Combat Medic with the 1st Bn. 75th Ranger Regiment. He was primarily responsible for providing emergency medical treatment and evacuation to his fellow Rangers. His special assignments also included serving as a medic for a Battalion Combat Observation Lasing Team (COLT) and the Combat Search and Rescue (CSAR) team. Most of his warrior skills would derive from this premier Special Operations light Infantry unit; while focusing on Small unit tactics, Emergency field medical concepts and Ranger Operations. Due to Clint’s expertise, he was chosen to be a Task-Force medic for Operation BAT (Bahamas, Turks and Caicos), a joint Counter-Narcotic Interdiction unit. Operation BAT conducted counter drug smuggling operations, human smuggling and search and rescue with the US Drug Enforcement Agency, US Coast Guard, and Royal Bahamas Police Force (RBPF) in the Caribbean Islands AOR.
Soon after, Clint successfully graduated from the John F Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School as a Special Forces Weapons Sergeant, and was awarded his Green Beret; he was assigned to an Operational Detachment-Alpha. He deployed for operations in SOCSOUTH in support of Operation Joint Task Force-Bravo (JTF-B) with 20th Special Forces Group. Upon returning to active duty, Clint was assigned to USAJFKSWCS as a SF qualification course Instructor. There he mentored and instructed future Special Forces soldiers. His follow on assignment would be with an Operational Detachment-Alpha in 3rd Battalion, 3rd Special Forces Group and his duty positions included Junior and Senior Weapons Sergeant, and Special Forces company assistant operations sergeant. Clint deployed to numerous states and military installations within the Continental United States, twenty-two countries in Central America, Caribbean, Europe, Africa, Asia and operations in the Middle East. Clint supervised pre-deployment site surveys teams, advanced party teams, Joint Combined Exchange Training, medical missions, US Embassy Liaison, Personal Security Detail (PSD) and Joint Special Operations training. He worked directly with Foreign Government, Military & Law-Enforcement Officials in support of national interests and combat operations.
Once again due to his achievements, Clint was selected to instruct as the Primary Subject Matter Expert (SME) for the United States Asymmetric Warfare Groups- Combat Applications Training Course (CATC) for Marksmanship Strategies and Standards; and he was responsible for training Senior Leaders, Drill Instructors, NCOA and Deploying FORCOM units in Close Quarters Marksmanship (CQM) & Close Quarters Battle (CQB) Techniques. He was then called upon to become a Weapons Acquisition Branch NCOIC, who gave critical insight into the development and integration of materiel efforts for legacy and revolutionary weapon systems for the US Army. His area of knowledge focused on all weapons: 9mm, 5.56, 7.62, .50 cal and 40mm high and low velocity rounds.
Clint is also a master of all levels of Combat Marksmanship. His skills include: Training beginner, intermediate and advanced tactical shooting, Security, Survival, Unconventional Warfare concepts, Direct Action, Counter-Terrorism. Clint has developed a training methodology that is safe, effective and combat relevant, and encourages a continuous thought process. He is highly capable of training others how to maintain safety at all times at a realistic level for the student skill set and experience, as well as giving courses covering several categories, which cover individual, collective, on line and standards.
After retiring from the military in 2012, Clint formed Black Skull Tactical Applications. Derived from Outcome Based Training and Education application of divergent strategies, tactics, capabilities, and approaches are used to circumvent or negate an opponent’s strengths, while exploiting their weaknesses. Clint’s training programs revolve around 25 years of military training and a Special Operations background.
Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts, DCS will not be exhibiting at the IWA Show this year. To meet with Clint, send an e-mail request to firstname.lastname@example.org and he will make sure to stop by for a visit. Join us in welcoming Clint to the team.
The A-TACS LE camouflage was first introduced at this year’s SHOT Show and new products in this pattern will be on display by Propper International in their booth (#10764) at the 2014 show. Look early next year for the release of an ACU cut uniform among other products in the Law Enforcement focused pattern.
I know our friends at Predator BDU will have them.
The long awaited A-TACS LE pattern that was featured at SHOT 2013 is now available for purchase through Schott Performance Fabrics. A-TACS LE camo was developed for, and with the assistance of, law enforcement professionals. It’s designed less for concealment and more as a “show of force” pattern for specialized situations that require the use of Special Operations or Tactical Response Teams.
Additionally, not only are the A-TACS camo patterns including A-TACS LE the official patterns of the Spirit of Blue Foundation, but for every product purchased in the A-TACS LE camo pattern, Digital Concealment Systems will be donation a portion of the proceeds to the Spirit of Blue Foundation.
Be on the lookout for future announcements regarding the availability of products featuring new A-TACS LE Camo.
