Almost Half Million Dutch Soldiers To Wear Camouflage Fabric Developed In The UK

Thursday, September 22nd, 2022

ADLINGTON, United Kingdom — September 20, 2022 — Pincroft, the largest textile dyer, printer and finisher in the United Kingdom, developed a new camouflage pattern for the Dutch Ministry of Defence as part of their Defensie Materieel Organisatie’s (DMO) ‘STRONG’ programme that aims to supply combat clothing and equipment to all military personnel part of the Royal Netherlands Navy, Army, Air Force and Marechaussee.

Pincroft followed the guidelines of the new Netherlands Fractal Pattern (NFP) to create an eight-colour camouflage design that provides high levels of disruption to give soldiers better concealment when needed.

As part of the Pincroft’s team developing the camouflage pattern, Chris Durkin, explains: “The more colours are added to the design, the more disruption is created offering a greater degree of concealment. Our experience in Infrared Reflective Technology (IRR) and military printing has allowed us the opportunity to produce a product that we are very proud of.”

The fabric itself was created by global workwear textile manufacturer, Carrington Textiles, specifically following the Dutch MoD’s requirements on comfort and protection. The result is a lightweight yet durable textile of 210gsm with a composition of 50% cotton, 50% high tenacity nylon and Ripstop for added strength.

The high cotton content of the fabric creates a uniform that’s comfortable to wear due to its softness to the touch, and breathability, as well as providing moisture wicking properties, key elements for the tough conditions soldiers work in. The addition of high tenacity nylon to the fabric, provides added strength and durability, with the Ripstop properties of the fabric offering tear resistance.

The Dutch MoD’s DMO reported: “The 43 Gemechaniseerde Brigade of the Koninklijke Landmacht in Havelte was the first to receive the new interim combat clothing. The soldiers received the basic coats and trousers in the new camouflage pattern. This is the start of the large-scale issue to the entire armed forces! So far we are very proud with the results.”

Around 480,000 trousers and jackets will be delivered to officers from the Royal Netherlands Navy, Army, Air Force and Marechaussee, during a uniform roll out part of the Dutch MoD’s ‘STRONG’ programme that aims to equip the armed forces in the next 18 months with versatile uniforms and equipment that are adjustable according to the assignment. The pack also includes a raincoat, combat shirt and baseball cap.

The new NFP camouflage pattern is being manufactured in a green or woodland style for the Army, Air Force, Marechaussee and Marines, while the Navy receives a blue or marine style design.

Carrington Textiles Sales Director, Paul Farrel, added: “We were honoured to receive from the Dutch MoD a regimental plaque to commemorate the launch of their new uniform and recognise the work we’ve done in developing this new fabric and print.

This milestone marked the beginning of the issuance of a new uniform to the Dutch armed forces.

Congratulations to the DMO’s KPU company for all their hard work and immense achievements, and to everyone at Pincroft and Carrington Textiles for playing a key role in the delivery of this transformational uniform!”

Original A-TACS FG Is Back!

Wednesday, July 27th, 2022

Columbus, GA – Taking heed to end user and market demand, Digital Concealment Systems, LLC., parent company to the A-TACS camo brand, is bringing back original

A-TACS FG, it’s flagship Foliage Green camo pattern variant.

First introduced in 2010, A-TACS FG established itself as a truly unique alternative to the heavily digitized foliage patterns that were then common in the tactical market.

When designing a green variant follow-up to the already popular original A-TACS AU Camo pattern, the easy answer would have been to simply re-color the existing pattern and release it as a green variant. Taking that approach may have been easier and faster however, it was not the approach DCS took to create an effective temperate climate pattern. The characteristic environmental elements and shapes found in greener, more temperate settings needed to be addressed. The answer was to create a brand-new pattern from the ground up. 

Utilizing numerous shades of green sampled directly from a variety of forested and transitional terrain elements combined with various shades of earth, A-TACS FG Camo was developed to be effective in a wide range of temperate environments. As with the original A-TACS AU (Arid/Urban) Camo pattern, the organic pixels in the micro patterns are grouped into larger, more defined “macro” shapes creating larger more defined patterns. The larger organic shapes and strategically placed shadow elements within the macro pattern help to create a unique three-dimensional effect. Additionally, strategic use of blending and color overlays were used to create a more organic soft-edged look to the pattern.

With the introduction of the A-TACS “X Line” of camo patterns in 2015, the decision was made to begin phasing out the original two patterns in favor of new updated designs. “Almost immediately after that time, end-users and manufacturers alike have been asking for the return of our classic pattern lineup” stated Phil Duke, Pattern Designer and President. ‘Based upon this continued demand, we have decided to bring back the original line-up of Original A-TACS AU and Original A-TACS FG. Both of these patterns are joining our newly introduced A-TACS U|CON (Universal CONcealment) pattern”, Duke continued. “We are excited for manufacturers to bring forward a whole new generation of gear in these classic patterns”.
