Although fabrics in the PenCott family of advanced camouflage patterns have been printed in the USA since July 2011, finished products in the patterns have been harder to obtain in the Americas than they have in Europe – especially garments.
That situation has begun to noticeably improve this year, and there is also now a US-based company making a wide range of tactical clothing and boots in PenCott camouflage patterns. That company is 707 Tactical Gear out of Miami, Florida with their SixKa brand of tactical garments and gear. 707 Tactical Gear designs products specifically to their clients requests and cuts-and-sews them from U.S.-made milspec materials in their wholly owned factories in Mexico.
707 Tactical Gear provided the first sneak-peak look at SixKa products in PenCott patterns at the SHOT Show. Now they are going into full production with a range of tactical garments and boots in the PenCott GreenZone and BadLands camo patterns.
All PenCott camouflage fabrics are made and printed in the USA to US Army Milspec standards and include robust, comfortable and highly fade resistant, vat-dyed, Cordura brand Nylon-Cotton ripstop and ultra-strong, abrasion resistant, acid-dyed Cordura brand nylon.
Products that are now in production, and available to order in PenCott camo patterns, include the following:
Eon 6k Combat Pants
Eon 6k Combat Shirt
707 Camo BDU Pants
Advanced Tactical Shirt
Speed-Tac 9 Boot
707 Tactical Gear will be displaying an even wider range of their SixKa brand products at the NTOA Conference and Exhibition at the end of August, and this will include additional products, such as:
SixKa Combat Pant
Classic Gear Shirt
Kourass Vest Carrier
Nomad Chest Rig
Recon Fanny Pouch

The PenCott family of camouflage patterns was developed by Dom Hyde of Hyde Definition Ltd. in response to the US Army’s Camouflage Improvement Initiative. The patterns have since gone on to achieve considerable commercial success and have also been in use with many of the western world’s top military and law enforcement special operations forces. PenCott camouflage fabrics and trims are stocked and distributed globally by MMI Textiles in Westlake, Ohio.
