IWA 2015: the PenCott™ spring offensive

There was a huge increase in the number of companies featuring products in PenCott™ patterns on their booths at IWA this year – here’s a run down, in no particular order.


New things on their booth this year were the ventilated CPU Boonie Hat and the PCS Smock – both items were displayed in the GreenZone pattern.

What is ‘Rasputin Item’?

To satisfy the demand in the airsoft world for economically-priced, quality-made replicas of real-steel gear using high-quality genuine materials, there is a new brand on the market with a rather unusual name.

We’re not sure why they chose the name “Rasputin Item”, but its certainly an original idea to name your tactical gear and garment producing company after a mysterious, and infamous, Russian spiritualist.  But at least they don’t feature an incomprehensible, scraggly-bearded, unwashed, weirdo in their advertising…

What you will find in their product line-up is a range of gear and clothing replicating some of the most highly sought after (and pricey) high-end gear and clothing from the real-steel world.  So, for example, you’ll see replicas of Crye Precision’s G3 Combat Shirt and Combat pants, as well as plate carriers with and without integrated mag pouches for assault rifles or sub-machine guns, and various other admin pouches and such.

Partner / Product Spotlight: UF PRO® SmallPac Monsoon in GreenZone™

GreenZoneprovides an outstanding level of camouflage and concealment in verdant environments, but sometimes you need protection from the elements too.

Enter UF PRO.  These guys don’t just make exceptionally ergonomic and functional garments, they are also very innovative in their use of materials.  And if the material they want doesn’t exist?  They go out and get it made!


Case in point:  they developed the first (and so far, only!) breathable, waterproof, GreenZone™ material for their SmallPac Monsoon rain suit.  And the result?  “Regarding comfort and waterproofness we did not notice any difference compared with the GORE-TEX® SmallPac Suit.  And regarding noise the GreenZone 2.5 layer laminate is even superior to the GORE-TEX® Paclite.”
