PRINCETON, FL – May 5, 2015 – TWN Industries Inc., the leading water transfer printing supplier, announces the release of Cabela’s three new camouflage hydrographic film patterns: Cabela’s Zonz™ Woodlands, Cabela’s Zonz™ Waterfowl and Cabela’s Zonz™ Woodlands Mini. The new hydro dipping patterns are printed using an innovative new wide-format technology that enables them to incorporate three distinct “zones.” With natural transitions from one zone to another, Zonz camo blends more effectively with variations in terrain and vegetation.

Cabela’s ColorPhase Technology

Monday, December 16th, 2013


Cabela’s has introduced the new ColorPhase technology to select styles of their Zonz camouflage hunting clothing. ColorPhase modifies the Zonz pattern with 4 colors that change along with the temperature. They become more green the warmer it is and more brown the cooler it is. The concept isn’t necessarily new. If you ever had one of those Tshirts that changes colors as you work out, you’ve seen the technology in action. What is new is using it with camouflage.

Could this work for the military? I’d say not. For one thing, this is a visual spectrum camouflage. Additionally, I’m not so sure it’s going to work for hunters. The pattern phase changes at 65 deg. Considering that your body is going to warm up as you move through the brush, you will invariably be more green than your surroundings.

Kryptek LEAF

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

Kryptek is developing a good following for their unique hunting camouflage and clothing line available through Cabela’s. Earlier today, they unveiled Kryptek L.E.A.F., which is a SDVOB (Service Disabled, Veteran Owned Business) that handles all of their government/military work. What makes this so significant is the timing. We didn’t expect to start seeing any of the proposed US Army camo patterns until after the upcoming down select announcement, but Kryptek LEAF just unveiled their full lineup. Go ahead and click on the image below to blow it up to full size so you can get a better feel for the patterns.

These four patterns make a family that shares common geometry but with complimentary color palettes for different environments. There is Highlander which serves as their Transitional pattern, Mandrake which is a Woodland design, Nomad for use in the Desert, and Yeti for Snow use. Not shown on this image are Urban and Typhon which are Grey based patterns for various urban applications.

Take a look at Highlander. It’s unlike anything we’ve ever seen before and they’ve done a great job of producing the illusion of 3D. As you can see, it looks great on a flat file. The question with not only these patterns but all of the Army candidates is, “Can they print it?” I’d say that this photo is a good indication that they can.

Kryptek on how it works:
Kryptek utilizes a multi-directional design to effectively conceal in a multitude of terrains that have either a lateral or vertical flow. The bi-level layering of the patterns incorporate background transitional shading and sharp random geometrical foregrounds to create a three dimensional effect that ensures the utmost in concealment at both close and long ranges. These components combined with colorations selected and matched based on input from testing and observations from Operators in the field make Kryptek Camo the ultimate in passive battlefield deception.

Kryptek LEAF will be officially unveiled at SHOT Show in Source One Distributors booth #8203.
