Social media, especially Facebook, has proven to be a very effective communications and marketing tool for us – so we were very happy to get some help from our friends at 762PR in Poland to create a new, dynamic and comprehensive fan-page for PenCott™ camouflage on Facebook.
The new page takes over from the previous Facebook Group as the primary go-to source for all things related to PenCott™ goodness. So don’t miss out – go “Like” the page to check out all the great stuff from the growing number of companies producing garments and gear in – and the growing number of military and law enforcement special ops units using – this stunningly effective family of patterns.
On 14 March 2013 the Program Manager-Special Operations Forces Survival, Support & Equipment Systems (PM-SOF SSES) released a Sources Sought Notice for Snow Camouflage pattern submissions, and then followed that up with an additional Sources Sought Notice for over-garments on 18 March 2013.
According to the Notice: “The camouflage pattern should be designed to provide concealment in alpine to sub-alpine environments, where snow, ice and rocks are the primary environmental features.
Camouflage patterns submitted to this sources sought solicitation must be beyond the development phase, and be printable on lightweight synthetic materials.”
It is important to note that this effort is for US SOCOM (Special Operations Command) only – it is not part of the overall US Army Camouflage Improvement Initiative, and is also not connected with the US Marine Corps’ mountain / cold weather clothing and snow camouflage efforts.
We felt that our “Snowdrift” variant of the PenCott camouflage pattern family would be ideal for this requirement, so submitted a roll of our fabric – as requested. We are also working with partners who are submitting their over-garment designs featuring our camouflage print.
