Whether you’re a fan of HALO or not, there is a lot to enjoy in ‘HALO: Nightfall’. Of particular interest for us is that the Sedran Colonial Guard force in the movie wear battle dress uniforms in PenCott-BadLands™ camouflage pattern. So we did some research and made some screen-grabs to give you a closer look.

The Sedran Colonial Guard is the primary military force of the remote Outer Colony of Sedra and is led by Colonel Randall Aiken, a former elite SPARTAN-II super-soldier. Many soldiers in the Sedran Colonial Guard are well-motivated and dedicated to the defense of their homeworld – as Private First Class Talitha Macer explains at one point; “We’ve lived in a state of perpetual war, surrounded by enemies. We were born fighting.”
Considering the temperate forested terrain of Sedra however, perhaps GreenZone™ would have been a more appropriate choice of camouflage…

The ‘HALO: Nightfall’ costume department created a distinctive look for the Sedran Colonial Guard troops by using BadLands™ Combat Patrol Uuniforms (CPUs) from Helikon-Tex, with a few cosmetic alterations. For Colonel Aiken’s uniform, and also for his close protection team, they used BadLands™ CPU trousers from Helikon-Tex paired with BadLands™ ‘Einsatzkampfjacken’ (‘Operational Battle Jackets’) from Leo Koehler. Besides some minor cosmetic changes, it also looks like the costume department ‘aged’ the uniforms with some sort of over-wash as well.
Hyde Definition’s cutting-edge PenCott-BadLands™ and PenCott-GreenZone™ camouflage patterns continue to show up in interesting places – this time they are featured in Season 3 of the award-winning Netflix drama “House of Cards”.
Caution, this announcement carries a SPOILER ALERT…
Seen in a crucial and dramatic segment of Season 3; PenCott™ camouflage patterns are seen in use by ’Russian’ soldiers taking part in a peacekeeping mission in the Middle East. The Russian soldiers are seen wearing BadLands™ uniforms, whereas GreenZone™ uniforms are worn by the Russian officers and by Russian President Petrov. All of the PenCott camouflage uniforms used are the CPU (Combat Patrol Uniform) model made by Polish company Helikon-Tex.
‘HALO: Nightfall’ depicts events between the fourth and fifth Halo games and follows the efforts of a group of soldiers as they try to stop the spread of a terrifying weapon.
In the wake of a biological attack on the planet Sedra, ONI Agent, Jameson Locke, and his team work with a local Sedra Colonial Guard commander to locate the origin of the bio-weapon; leading them to an ancient, hellish artifact, and ending in a desperate fight for the team’s survival.
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.
