4 Finalists for the Camouflage Improvement Effort
Soldier Systems has announced the 4 companies selected by the US Army as finalists in their camouflage improvement effort. Click here for the full article.
Guy Cramer is on the list (if one of his CUEPAT design goes into production, and he's awarded a contract with the US Army, I may very well just stop blogging), as is Crye Precision (not a huge surprise there), and two companies I had not heard of until now: "Brookwood Companies" and "Kryptek". I'm very interested to see what the two latter selections have produced, as one would appear to me a garment manufacturer with no previously publicized camouflage designs, and the other seems to be a primarily hunting camouflage-oriented designer.
This announcement does mean bad news for another one of my favourite camouflage manufacturers, Hyde Definition. Sorry that you were passed over guys!
