TacHacker – Helmet Assault Ghillie

Saturday, July 10th, 2021

TNVC’s Augee Kim recently shared his Helmet Assault Ghillie DIY project on social media. Here it is, in case you missed it.

Recent little project of mine that I’m calling the “Helmet Assault Ghillie,” or “HAG.”

Inspired by WWII-era “net” helmet covers, I wanted a quick and easy way to attach and remove camouflage scrim to a helmet, while still retaining full functionality of critical components like the helmet rails/rail-mounted accessories, Core Survival Hel-Star 6 IFF strobes, external power connectors, retention systems, etc.

The base is a 550 cord net secured to the helmet using shock cord and clipped on to the helmet clips included with the Ops-Core Step-In Visor (the kit actually includes all the needed clips—two long ones for Super High Cut configuration rails as well as two short ones for High Cut/XP configuration rails, I just installed both), to which I used jute twine to tie on manufactured camouflage net as well as cut strips of Multicam mesh material, but you could also tie or tuck any foliage, burlap, or other material to it as well.

The final product gives me full function (including being able to change batteries in the external battery pack by unhooking the back of the HAG) of all my helmet-mounted systems, while, in my opinion, effectively breaking up the outline of the helmet and providing effective (and matching—tacti-fashion is important too) additional camouflage that is non-permanent, and quick and easy to attach and remove.

CAA adds TrueTimber and MossyOak to MCK Line

Thursday, July 1st, 2021

The MCK (Micro Conversion Kit) handgun conversion kit from CAA USA is now available in both TrueTimber Strata (above) and Mossy Oak Bottomland (below) camouflage patterns.



The Mossy Oak and TrueTimber micro conversion kits will be available to the “die-hard shooter” and “avid hunter” on two platforms (Gen 1 and Gen 2)

CAA manufactures one of the most recognizable Glock brace ensembles on the market, all divided into two primary types: the MCK and RONI. While they’re most often associated with Glock brand handguns, they also have Smith & Wesson, Springfield, SIG Sauer, and other options available.

The MCK Mossy Oak is available in two different generations, Gen 1 and Gen 2. Both models are specifically designed with the hunter in mind, and both models are available in the popular Mossy Oak Bottomland pattern.

This is a great opportunity to connect TrueTimber camo to the tactical world and CAA MCK to hunting enthusiasts with such a versatile product that has already proven its worth in so many different applications.”


CAA CEO LTC (Ret.) Mikey Harman advises,

“With TrueTimber’s unmatched dedication to the outdoor community, we at CAA found this partnership to be an absolute win-win. The versatility and modularity of the MCK platform lend themselves extremely well to the ever-growing handgun and PCC handgun markets.

Our success in the tactical, law enforcement, and sports shooting communities make the partnership with TrueTimber the next logical step in the MCK timeline. The MCK comes in 17 color choices including several custom Cerakote models and currently fits 115 handgun types with many more slated for release in the coming months.”

Tiger Stripe Cierzo Suit Launches This Weekend

Friday, June 25th, 2021


Flimmuur Tactical and TRC Outdoors are VERY excited to announce a product collaboration!

In parallel to Flimmuur’s current project of developing modern equipment and nylon goods in Tiger Stripe Camouflage, Flimmuur is collaborating with other brands to bring modern clothing products to market. To kick things off, we present the Tiger Stripe Cierzo Suit.

Flimmuur Tactical has long been a leader in innovative design for load bearing equipment particularly the use of laser-cut laminates.  Ed from Flimmuur is also well known for his encyclopaedic knowledge on all things camo.  TRC Outdoors are therefore very pleased to have been recognised by Flimmuur for our Cierzo Suit design, and invited to join in this collaboration.

Tiger Stripe Camouflage

The Tiger Stripe family of camouflage patterns has always been fascinating for Ed, since its phylogeny perfectly encapsulates the tumultuous period of world history that immediately followed the end of the Second War. During the First Indochina War of the 1950s, French forces and notably paratroopers were issued with TAP 47/52 uniforms in the tenue du leopard or Lizard pattern.

Emblematic of the winds of change, the failure of this French attempt to reassert their dominion gave way to the rise in geopolitical tensions of the Cold War.  By the early 60s, the Republic of Vietnam had started creating derivative camouflage patterns, re-using and adapting many brushstroke motifs that resulted in a marked familial resemblance to the earlier Lizard patterns.

Fearing the fall of successive countries to Communism (Domino Theory), increasing American intervention drove a demand for uniforms that were suitable for jungle warfare in humid climes. Many advisors sought out locally produced S?c R?n or striped uniforms of their local counterparts, which resulted in a flourishing cottage industry within Vietnam. In fact, Mom-and-Pop shops from nearby Thailand and Okinawa retooled to capitalise on such insatiable demand, reflecting the significant and oft-forgotten contributions of the wider South East Asia region to the war effort. Mirroring the evolutionary processes of the natural world, slight changes were incorporated into the Tiger Stripe family, resulting in the diversity of camouflage patterns, dyes and fabrics that we observe today.

With the passage of time, Tiger stripe continues to evolve and variants remain in service within Thai and Filipino forces, as a mark of elite status among their special units. Within Western units, Tiger Stripe and its desert variants have re-emerged in Afghanistan; its legacy lives on, with operators from the US 5th Special Forces Group pictured in such uniforms on a recent exercise.

Whilst fabric and manufacturing technologies have come leaps and bounds, it is his intention that the spirit, sacrifices and history of our forefathers can be preserved. To this end, Ed of Flimmuur Tactical has dedicated a lot of time and effort in recreating a classic Tiger Stripe pattern, based on a period artifact. Who knows, Gold Tiger Stripe and French Lizard may be in the works for future projects.

Cierzo Products

Cierzo Shirts are born out of a garment staple used by British SF and Airborne Forces throughout the BCE (before Crye existed) era, falling out of fashion during the GWOT.

The first mention of them we have found was as garments made by SAS Troopers from their parachutes after they had dropped into France prior to D-Day.

TRC Outdoors resurrected them and bought them up to date with modern fabric, a few design tweaks and modern construction techniques.

The garment is meant to be used as a windproof outer layer or as an intermediate layer.  They can even be worn under a damp outer layer while it dries out.  Cierzos punch well above their weight in terms of the warmth they offer, especially in windy conditions and mountainous terrain.  They also excel for use in the Jungle in Wet/Dry drills due to the compact size of the garment and waterproof bag.

Offered here as an individual Shirt or Suit set, which consists of Shirt and Trousers. The Dry Bag can be purchased separately, but is offered as a discount, when purchased with the Suit.

Thyrm Introduces Desert Night Camouflage 2.0 Hat

Wednesday, June 9th, 2021

Sunnyvale, CA — At Thyrm, we’re all about innovative solutions to real-world problems. We realized there was a substantial need in the marketplace to defeat obsolete soviet-era night vision technology, especially for the front half of user’s heads. With no one innovating in this crucial segment of the market, we partnered with world-renowned designers to develop a next-generation solution that brings desert night camouflage squarely into the 1990s.

Our desert night camouflage pattern includes an upgraded grid resolution and our subtle Norse axe and gear logos that have been unscientifically proven to counteract hammer and sickle-based optics.

Like our other hats, this one is made completely in the USA, including a custom-printed cotton twill that is cut and sewn in Colorado.

We hope you have as much fun wearing this hat as we did designing it! And don’t forget to enjoy the fact that you’re supporting our small family business and many others here in our country.

Build:  Mesh trucker, but with a mid-rise, medium structure build. No ten-gallon hats, and no foam front panels.

Camo Velcro Adjustment:  Flip the hat around when you’re shooting with a camera or rifle and the fabric backing on the adjuster wicks sweat. No clammy plastic closures here.

No Top Button:  Perfect for long muff sessions on the range

Limited Edition Anniversary Giggle Bush Hat in Platatac Camo

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2021

The Platatac GBH-R is one of my favorite Recce Hats and this limited edition version has a special story.

The Platacam Anniversary Limited Edition has been created to celebrate 33 years of Platypus Outdoors. Platacam is a digital camoflague pattern developed in the early 2000s as an alternative to Auscam. It was trialled by Tactical Police Units throughout Australia, but sadly never became an offical pattern. In 2008 Australian Special Forces used Platacam in ops as part of it’s trial process, but lost out to MultiCam.

This is an extremely limited run using fabric from the 2008 SF order. Once these are sold these will not be made again.
