Hyde Definition recently gave us a look at their upcoming Pathfinder BDU. Named in honor of WW II’s paratroopers, naturally, the Pathfinder will feature the PenCott patterns. It’s Berry compliant and uses the ACU fit block so finding the right size won’t be an issue.
The trousers feature large cargo pockets with button down flaps.
There is also a zippered compartment behind the main zipper.
The double knees will accept padding.
Additionally, there is a lower leg pocket similar to the ACU with a hook and pile tape flap.
The rear of the waist is slightly higher than the front to prevent sagging and the pockets are of a horizontal slash type, both front and rear.
The button waist also offers a tape to tighten the pants in the event of weight loss.
The jacket’s two chest pockets are angled slightly outboard and rely on hook and pile tape flaps. The zippered Napoleon-style openings seen on this prototype will not be included on the production model.
The stand up collar does not utilize hook and pile tape and can be worn up or down. The front is zippered with a flap secured with hook and pile tape.
As with the ACU there’s a bi-swing back for comfort and reach as well as hook and pile tape cuffs.
The inset sleeve pockets are zippered and so far do not include QuietLoop patches although this may be offered as an option.
Look for the Pathfinder BDU as well as a few other surprises in early Summer from Domari Nolo, Predator BDU and Tactical Gear Now.
