O’Neill Ops mix it up a bit with BadLands™ and SnowDrift™

It is very much the fashion these days to wear camouflage that’s all “matchy-matchy” – in other words, for everything from your boots to your hat and your gloves to your belt and everything in between to be in the same, perfectly matched camouflage pattern.

1467318_731603190184652_1192474712_nHowever, sometimes its good to mix things up a bit – especially in “transitional” terrain or seasons.  In these photos we see the guys from O’Neill Ops using this principle to great effect on the plains of South Dakota recently with a combination of PenCott-BadLands™ and PenCott-SnowDrift™.

Incidentally, the camo oversuit they’re using here was developed by Hyde Definition, and is currently being produced under license by Applied Orange Performance Equipment.


Other SnowDrift options in lightweight, water-resistant polyester and water-resistant-treated, 50/50 nylon-cotton ripstop are available from Drop Zone Tactical, Sabre, – and coming soon from Leo Koehler, Helikon-Tex and UF PRO.

Drop Zone Tactical adds BadLands™ to its portfolio

In a photo series released today, Drop Zone Tactical showcased their Stubby Boonie Hat, Recce Smock, Gen.III Ops Pants and the newly revised Ops Shirt in PenCott-BadLands™ camouflage pattern (US mil-spec 50/50 NyCo ripstop fabric).  BadLands™ will also now be added to the Drop Zone Tactical portfolio as a color option for all products going forward.

The photos also show the effectiveness of the pattern in “transitional” woodland terrain.


Additional photos from the series can be seen on Drop Zone Tactical’s facebook page.

Drop Zone Tactical introduces the “Tyrannus” Over Suit in PenCott-Snowdrift™ camouflage

Being located in Canada’s north Drop Zone Tactical know a thing or two about snow – they also know a thing or two about making combat clothing and gear with bomb-proof quality and jaw-dropping innovation.  So, when they set out to design a winter camo over smock and pant set, you could expect it to be great. The Tyrannus Over Suit is just that. A great winter camo over smock and pant set.
