Slovenian tactical clothing company UF PRO offers some impressive products, however they have been difficult to procure for the North American customer, until now, that is. Canadian company SEALS Action Gear has become the North American distributor for UF PRO, and will be carrying their full line of products in the full colorway UF PRO offers, including PenCott patterns. Last month, we featured a story on SEALS Action Gear and their adoption of PenCott patterns for several of their in-house designs.

    Hyde Definition Announces The Launch Of

    Wednesday, July 1st, 2015


    29 June 2015


    Designed and built in-house, is the new central, brand-hub for the PenCott® family of camouflage patterns from Hyde Definition Ltd.

    This is the first time that the PenCott® pattern family has had its own dedicated website, and greatly expands and improves upon the PenCott® pattern content that has been previously held on the website.  Among other enhancements, the new site features an in-depth look at the development of the patterns, what makes them so effective and where the name ‘PenCott’ comes from. 


    Another key highlight of the new site is the wide-ranging and ever growing gallery of submitted photographs showing the performance of the patterns in-the-field around the world.  There’s even an interactive map of the world that lets you select to see photos of the patterns in use by country (and by state in the US).

    A useful section of the site for Makers is the page covering the range of different PenCott® pattern fabrics and materials that are now available – as well as links to sources where they can be bought.


    Consumers will find the full, up-to-date listing of PenCott® garment and gear producers – with links off to their websites – an invaluable resource for getting kitted up in PenCott®.

    Finally, the Blog section of the site will present all of the latest news related to the PenCott® patterns, as well as additional original content relating to the field of camouflage history, design and technologies.


    With the launch of the separate site, the legacy site will be revamped and refocused to cover the consultancy services and other camouflage projects that Hyde Definition works on.

    Check out today – and also don’t forget to follow PenCottCamo on Facebook and Instagram too.

    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:


    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.
