NZDF 1st Bde Begins Fielding New Uniforms

The New Zealand Army’s 1st Brigade has begun to field the new Multi-Terrain Camouflage Uniform.

The new garb features incorporated knee and elbow pads and there is also an FR version for operational deployments. They are part of a new layered clothing system includes wet and cold weather layers which are designed to fit underneath and over top of the MCUs.

The NZ Army will be rolling the uniforms out over the next six months. The now ‘old’ uniform worn by NZ Army will be inspected and all serviceable items will be placed into a clothing pool to equip recruits, officer cadets and the NZ Air Force until stocks are exhausted.

One significant aspect of this new uniform and associated camo pattern developed by HyperStealth Biotechnology Corp is that it is not a pixelated pattern. Additionally, the Kiwis opted for a single pattern, acknowledging that troops find themselves in multiple environments over the course of an operation. According to Project Manager, Captain Ian Leabourne, “We have traditionally had our two patterns of uniform, one for the jungle and one for the desert. However, with the operational environments we face today, we can be operating in a variety of terrains within one area. We needed something which would do the job in whatever environment we deploy to. This uniform, with its unique NZ Defence Force pattern, solves this issue. The MCUs are a layered clothing system, so it is not just a case of a new look. We have included the full range of clothing which our soldiers need to perform well on operations and in training.”

HyperStealth Explains Why MARPAT Isn’t The Answer

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

A lot of people look at the US Military’s camo wars and ask themselves, “Why not just adopt MARPAT?” That’s a fair question, especially when you take it one step further and ask, “Why bother with camouflaged PPE when using Coyote is good enough?”

HyperStealth’s Guy Cramer takes a look at the history and data available to explain why MARPAT isn’t the best answer. This is well worth the read.

HyperStealth Explains Why the US Army Is Looking For Camouflage In The First Place

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

Hyperstealth’s front man Guy Cramer has written a rather extensive look at the recent history of US Army camouflage development. Inspired by the large number of online commenters stating that OD provided the best camouflage, he dug into his archives to demonstrate that this isn’t the case at all and goes one step further by using the US Army’s documentation to make the case for environmental specific camo patterns and explain why the Army ended up conducting the Camouflage Improvement Effort.

Cramer is very open about the fact that he worked with ADS Inc to offer the US4CES family of patterns so he has some very staunch opinions about camouflage. In my opinion, this doesn’t color his article but it’s worth knowing while you read it all the same. Ultimately, it is definitely worth your time to read.

We just received this note from Guy Cramer at HyperStealth. This is huge news for those wishing to produce custom gear with the Deceptex patterns.

We will be selling all 560+ Deceptex patterns on printed light weight 70/30 Poly/Cotton fabric (the cotton is predominant on the inside next to the skin) from our site within the next 2 weeks.

5 yard (x 60″ wide) minimum orders (enough to make a complete uniform)

Deceptex Inks will not work in the IR spectrum.

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

Hyperstealth just released this statement:

Breaking News: Hyperstealth can now print short runs of 1000 Denier Coated Cordura Nylon Fabric with or without Polyurethane Coating. This is the material most often used for Molle gear, rucksacks (backpacks), duffle bags, vests and chest rigs…

The material in 1000d or 500d will initially only be available for U.S. Special Forces through our Ghostex series of patterns.

The photo shows a sample from our printer of the New Zealand Army’s new Multi Terrain Camouflage Uniform (MCU pattern) a Hyperstealth design which is scheduled to replace their current patterns this Spring.

This pattern beat Multicam in the New Zealand Army Field Trials, Multicam did not even make their finals proving that Digital Pixel Camouflage when done correctly is superior to non-pixelated patterns.
