The picture tells the story…
According to John Ammons of UW Gear, the pull tabs on the mag pouch flaps were deliberately made from solid color Coyote Brown webbing. The reason for that was because, “The printed webbing matches the material and blends with it so well, it really makes the tabs hard to see if you had to look down for them in a hurry.”
This year’s IWA & Outdoor Classics trade fair in Nurmeberg, Germany (8-11 March) will include, for the first time, an extensive representation of the PenCott family of camouflage patterns.
(stand #508, Hall 7A)
Stop by the Hyde Definition booth to see samples of the full range of PenCott printed fabrics and materials – as well as garments and gear in PenCott camouflage from several manufacturers from around the globe. Also featured will be the first public appearance of PenCott printed webbing from Texcel Industries.

UW Gear’s MINUTEMAN MKII Chest Rig is made to order and is available in AK and AR versions. It is specifically designed to give the rifleman an optimum platform to carry 3 x 30-rd mags, plus additional gear if required. It is intended for unsupported operations where mag protection and retention are critical, but with quick access as well. To that end, the mag pouches feature UW Gear’s unique Fast Tab closure system, which is brilliantly simple yet cunningly effective.
Prototype Minuteman MKII AK chest rig featuring 4 mag pouches. Production version features 3 mag pouches.
