Good Guys in Greenzone

Friday, February 20th, 2015

Yesterday’s online and paper editions of the Austrian newspaper ‘Heute’ (Today) featured an article and photo gallery of the Austrian Interior Ministry’s anti-terrorist / special operations unit ‘Einsatzkommando COBRA’.

The photo spread included this shot of a two-man sniper team in their standard-issue GreenZone camouflage smocks and trousers from SABRE in Germany. COBRA has been using a range of GreenZone camouflage clothing and equipment made by SABRE since 2012. Einsatzkommando Cobra isn’t GI Joe’s arch-nemesis but rather an Austrian Counter Terrorism team with a very good reputation. Organized under the Ministry of the Interior, Cobra was founded in 1978 and is made up of about 450 personnel.

Cobra

They even use GLOCKs.

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.

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.

PenCott-BlackOps1

Today, Hyde Definition has announced the latest addition to the PenCott family, the PenCott BlackOps “urban” pattern – first seen as a sneak-preview for SPARTANAT at the IWA exhibition in Nuremberg.

Designed for LE, Government agency, and Military Special Operations units, in addition to functioning as a “lifestyle pattern”, PenCott BlackOps enables the tactical operator to “own the night and dominate the fight.” BlackOps will compliment units’ existing black kit, and is the “perfect pattern for disappearing into the shadows of the man-made landscape, and for projecting a an intimidating, show-of-force image to visually and psychologically dominate your opponents.”
