Propper has their new A-TACS new camouflage pattern that John Shirley loves. Digital pattern, no 90 degree angles, organically shaped, uses "patterns within a pattern" to be effective at all ranges, currently being evaluated for the US Armed Forces.

The A-TACS cammo was designed without right angles, so it looks organic.

Most camouflage patterns are either effective at close range, such as the bowhunting patterns, or at long range, like Woodland. The A-TACS is meant to be effective when seen at close range, or at longer ranges, where the large color variations should break up a person's outline.

This camo looks like what I meant the camouflage I used to make for fun years ago to look like! Propper does say that the pattern, while "universal", is most effective in other than woodland environments, but it still looks effective for the woods to me.

Still too damn much velcro. Tactically unsound and not good for a hunting uniform either.

I agree about the Velcro, but any force is free to change the form of the uniform itself. It's the camo I love. I would like to test some vs. other camo types.

Anyone know whose plate carrier is on the mannequin in that first photo?

Most camouflage patterns are either effective at close range, such as the bowhunting patterns, or at long range, like Woodland. The A-TACS is meant to be effective when seen at close range, or at longer ranges, where the large color variations should break up a person's outline.

It looks interesting, but it looks low contrast enough that blobbing out at distance could be a problem. Not as much of a problem as on the current Army Clown Uniform, but still something I'll be wondering about until it starts getting out to a broader market and getting put through its paces.
