Did you spot the person in the photo above?
Effective camouflage defeats the ability of an observer to detect or recognize the shape and form of the wearer – even a split-second reduction in detection or recognition can mean the difference between mission success or failure.
That’s why we call the PenCott® family –Mission Critical Camouflage.

NEW FABRIC DEVELOPMENTS
Thanks to our friends at MMI Textiles, and due to market demand, we are pleased to announce the addition of several new fabric types to the PenCott® camouflage range.
- 70D ripstop nylon – with DWR finish and PU backing (currently only available in the GreenZone™ colorway) – perfect for rucksack covers, bashas and ground sheets, ponchos, hammocks, tent covers, or anything that requires a waterproof non-breathable fabric.
- Thermal-signature-mitigating mesh – digitally printed (available as single-side or double-side printed in GreenZone™, BadLands™, SandStorm™, and SnowDrift™ colorways) – perfect for sniper hides, body veils, or anything else that requires a cover that reduces thermal signature to ambient levels.
- 8 oz. polyester mesh – digitally printed (available as single-side or double-side printed in GreenZone™, BadLands™, SandStorm™, and SnowDrift™ colorways) – perfect for helmet covers, vest bodies, dive bags or anything else that requires a tough camouflaged mesh fabric.
- 500D Cordura Nylon, uncoated – now available with DWR finish only (available in GreenZone™, BadLands™, SandStorm™, and SnowDrift™ colorways) – perfect for lamination projects, garment reinforcing panels, or anything else that requires a tough, breathable, water-repellant fabric.
All of the above fabrics are available from MMI Textiles (the 70D ripstop nylon and uncoated 500D Cordura nylon fabrics are also included in the End-Of-Summer Sale).
Customers in Europe can also purchase genuine PenCott® camouflage fabrics and trims from Tacticaltrim in Germany.
NEW PARTNER SPOTLIGHT:
We are proud to announce that Murdock Webbing’s jacquard woven webbing is now available in our GreenZone™ pattern (BadLands™ pattern will also be available soon).
Murdock Webbing’s jacquard woven camouflage webbing products use a combination of Berry Compliant materials and textile engineering to create a durable, double-sided webbing product at a competitive price.
The jacquard woven construction has proven to be very abrasion resistant in repeated laboratory tests. Even after 2000 abrasion cycles, patterns are still intact. In the field this translates directly to an end product that remains effective, in terms of camouflage concealment and functionality, for a very long period of time.
Murdock Webbing is also the exclusive narrow fabric company to offer Schoeller’s NanoSphere® technology. NanoSphere® repels water and dirt to create a self-cleaning finish and enhance durability.
GreenZone™ woven webbing is now in-stock and available through MMI Textiles,Tacticaltrim and Murdock Webbing.
