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.

Caveat Emptor – Seconds/Counterfeit PenCott Fabric

Monday, February 9th, 2015

Bottom Line Up Front
The only truly authentic, genuine, first-quality PenCott fabrics are the ones that that have been or are being sold by Hyde Definition, MMI Textiles or Tacticaltrim.

Hyde Definition recently issued an alert regarding both the sale of seconds quality as well as counterfeit fabrics.

(null)

For example, this garment sewn in a Crye Precision combat uniform style is made from seconds quality GreenZone fabric. These are ejected off-color and other types of ‘second-quality’ PenCott camouflage fabric which have turned up on eBay and other online wholesale outlets being sold as good quality material. Some customers have already been duped by the low prices on the per-yard fabric and/or by low shipping rates.

If its not genuine first-quality fabric, there could be one or more problems with it – such as; the colors being off, the colors will fade quickly, the fabric will shrink too much when its washed, etc.

Counterfeits on the other hand are originating in China, Indonesia and Ukraine. These are unauthorized reproductions of genuine fabrics. Aside from being thievery, these fabrics suffer from indistinct prints, incorrect colors, and low quality substrate fabrics. Once again, buy fabric from legitimate sources to ensure quality.

Hyde Definition is pursuing legal action against the counterfeiters, and has pledged to take action against any retailer who offers finished goods made from these counterfeit fabrics.

MMI Textiles And Hyde Definition Create A Partnership For Production And Distribution Of The PenCott™ Brand Of Camouflage For Domestic And International Military And Commercial Markets

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

WESTLAKE, OHIO, USA, OCTOBER 7, 2014 – MMI Textiles introduces Hyde Definition’s PenCott™ family of patterns into its strong portfolio of military textile products. The PenCott™ inventory will initially consist of the BadLands™, GreenZone™, SandStorm™ and SnowDrift™ patterns on 500D Cordura, Nylon-Cotton Ripstop, and 50D Polyester fabrics – all printed and finished to meet US milspec nIR standards. Future production will also expand to include Asia for delivery to our customers who manufacture their end products in the Far East. Additional fabric and fabric-based substrates will be added to the portfolio as well – some of which will also leverage new printing technologies.

PenCott family 500D Cordura

Increased availability of PenCott™ patterns, with commitment from the MMI Team

MMI has always had a strong commitment to the US armed forces, and many of our international customers also seek quality products that have been manufactured to US standards. We have over 30 years of experience in the military market producing cotton, nylon, polyester and blended fabrics. The PenCott™ family of camouflage patterns greatly enhances our existing product offering and we are excited to have this opportunity to increase sales and marketing efforts for this newly created partnership. For further information about the PenCott™ patterns, please visit www.HydeDefinition.com and/or the PenCott™ Facebook page at: www.Facebook.com/PenCottcamouflage.

PenCott™ – Mission Critical Camouflage: the science behind the solution

The development of the PenCott™ pattern began in 2005 as a result of Dom Hyde noting that virtually all current-issue military camouflage patterns for clothing were ineffective in many environments and missions in a post 9/11 world. Dom’s decades of studying and experimenting with thousands of camouflage designs and the direct result of several years of independent research and development has gone into the creation of PenCott™.

The 360° pattern geometry – with the inclusion of large, medium and small fractal shapes – makes the PenCott™ patterns effective at close, mid and long range; and because of its non-linear orientation, the full effectiveness of the pattern is retained whether the wearer is standing, kneeling or prone.

PenCott Marker Panels

Battle System LLC has added PenCott BadLands and GreenZone as pattern options for the Marker Panel, Individual, LW Mk1. I am a huge fan of the MPILW and I think it should be standard issue for everyone. It’s lightweight, durable and effective, transforming from a compact 2.5″ x 2.5″ x .75″ to a full 17″ x 17″ reversible to orange for signaling.
