TWN Releases Long-Awaited Kryptek Pattern: Universal

Friday, October 16th, 2015

WTP-848 Kryptek Universal-MC

PRINCETON, FL – October 14, 2015 – TWN Industries Inc., the leading Water Transfer Printing supplier, releases “Kryptek Universal.” Fans of the Kryptek line know that up to now all of their designs have required a specific basecoat color to be used in conjunction with their patterns. And while those requirements were put in place to ensure consistency across the brand’s multiple designs, Kryptek Universal is here to spice things up.

At first glance, the pattern seems like a greyscale version of previous Kryptek designs. However, this pattern is far from being lackluster in the color department. In fact, Kryptek Universal was designed to be used with any desired basecoat color. In doing so, Kryptek has essentially given WTP processors the ability to offer their customers a much broader variation of styles. That flexibility opens up the market for hydro dipping experts by giving them the ability to target a wider customer base. Kryptek’s passionate and loyal fans will also be sure to appreciate this new addition.

As always, the Universal pattern was created using Kryptek’s strict quality control procedures. It’s that constant attention to detail and continual improvement that results in top-quality products loved by outdoor adventurers who demand only the best performance from their gear.

The Kryptek Universal water transfer printing film pattern is available exclusively through TWN Industries, Inc. Three-meter accessory packs are available immediately. Place your production roll orders today. The part number for Kryptek Universal is WTP-848. To find a TWN Certified Decorator who can decorate products for you, or to purchase film, call 305-258-9622.

La Sportiva – Trango Cube GTX Highlander

Monday, August 17th, 2015

During the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market earlier this month, I had an opportunity to check out a new tactical version of the popular Trango Cube GTX from La Sportiva. The brand has long been embraced by the military who have issued at the unit level, several models of their civilian mountain boots. What’s interesting was their choice of color scheme for this militarized version of the Trango Cube. While the civilian Trango Cube GTX may be the most advanced boot in the line, the existing colors are hardly friendly to tactical climbing. As you can see, this version incorporates the Highlander transitional camouflage pattern from Kryptek.


The Trango Cube GTX features a new seamless, waterproof upper with protective rand and direct-inject lacing system. Additionally, this Gore-Tex lined boot offers an integrated removable tongue made from a soft stretch fabric to increase comfort. They’ve also reduced the weight from previous versions yet increased abrasion resistance. One of the ways they’ve reduced weight is with the La Sportiva “One” sole made by Vibram which offers a lower profile meaning lower weight.

Weight: 26.2 oz / 743 g
Sizes: 37 – 48 (half sizes)
Upper: QB3 Waterproof fabric/ Kryptek Highlander Print Cordura/ FlexTec2 fabric/ Thermo-Tech Injection
TPU lacing system/ PU Eyelets/ Vibram Rubber Rands
Lining: Gore-Tex Performance Comfort
Insole: 4mm graded Nylon
Midsole: PU in toe and heel/ EVA in the central zone and in the heel / TPU insert for rear crampon attachment
Sole: La Sportiva “ONE” by Vibram (exclusive) with Impact Brake System
Construction: Board Lasted
Last: Trango

OR – Smith Elite

Friday, August 7th, 2015

Smith Elite introduced Kryotek coatings to their line with a single frame about 18 months ago and now they’ve expanded to three frames, Prospect, Hideout and Hudson which can be pur hased with Kryptek’s Highlander or Typhon patterns. The Typhon is so subtle when matched with a grey lens that you can’t see it more than a few feet away.


These eyepro all exceed US MIL-PRF-31013 clause & ANSI Z87.1 and feature anti-fog coating.

Kryptek Camo Spotted In Jurassic World

Thursday, June 18th, 2015

It you haven’t seen Jurassic World yet, I suggest do. It’s a fun movie. You may just spot a few cool bits of kit.

Kryptek 1

InGen’s Asset Containment Unit of the recently released Jurassic World can be spotted wearing Kryptek pattern Vertx clothing. And through the pattern in the photos may look like Kryptek Typhon, it’s not!

Kryptek 2

As it turns out, Kryptek Typhon was too dark for the needs of the production crew, which is why a team of agers and dyers took Kryptek Mandrake pattern clothing instead and over-dyed it to look very close to Typhon. These teams also handle the tracking and replication of wear, tear, and battle damage to clothing.

Thanks to ‘MK’ for the tip!
