SixKa Brand By 707 Tactical Gear Now Featuring PenCott Camo Clothing And Boots

Wednesday, May 11th, 2016

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.

SixKa

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
  • D-Force 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
  • TESTAC Multicap
  • Kourass Vest Carrier
  • Nomad Chest Rig
  • Recon Fanny Pouch
  • You can view full product details, download a PDF catalog, or place an order at www.sixkausa.com.

    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.

    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:

    1

    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.

    2

    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.
