Traditional solid white “snow camouflage” doesn’t work well in terrain where the snow cover is uneven and features shadows and textures, and/or where rocks and dry vegetation break the blanket of snow. So, some other snow camouflage patterns attempt to include the appearance of stalks, grass or tree branches – which only work in very specific environments.
Snowdrift is a three-color pattern that uses the same pattern geometry as the rest of the PenCott family, and is specifically designed for optimum concealment in a wide range of snow-covered terrain.
The 3-in-1, omni-directional, multi-scalar, fractal pattern geometry, plus the 3 carefully analyzed and selected colors of Snowdrift, creates a pattern that vanishes into the textures of the natural environment. And as the photos below show, it works well at close, mid- and longer-range distances too.
The camouflage over-suit featured in these photos is made from our lightweight, quick-drying, 100% polyester fabric with a durable water-resistant finish and military specification nIR performance. The suit comprises a parka and trousers set that features multiple pockets, and reinforcing patches on the elbows, knees and seat. It was developed by Hyde Definition with Griffin Manufacturing of Fall River, Massachusetts at the request of a private military company, but will also be available soon directly from Hyde Definition. Dealers and retailers interested in stocking the suit can contact us for further information. Watch out for more details to also be made public soon.
Finally, our Marketing and Business Development Director, Lawrence Holsworth, will be attending the SHOT Show in Las Vegas the 14th – 18th of January. Feel free to contact him at +1-508-677-2155 or firstname.lastname@example.org for a meeting or discussion.
