The Next Generation A-TACS “X” Line of Camo Patterns Released Signaling New Direction for Company

There’s something new brewing at Digital Concealment Systems, the company that launched the A-TACS Camo patterns. Original A-TACS AU released in 2009, A-TACS FG released in 2011, and A-TACS LE released in 2013 are being retired as their new X series of patterns have now been completed and are coming online to replace the three original “Legacy” patterns. The X line represents the conclusion of more than three years of development culminating with the release of new AU-X (Arid/Urban Xtreme) and FG-X (Foliage Green Xtreme). It also represents a new streamlined direction for the company itself. Not only have Camouflage Patterns evolved, the company ownership has also followed suit. The company has been re-organized with a new focus and is now run by Founder and Pattern Developer, Phil Duke and Clint Hoover, who previously served as A-TACS Spokesman, Business Development and Marketing strategist.

With 25 years serving in the United States Army as a US Army Ranger Medic, Special Forces Weapons Sergeant with Assaulter/Sniper assignments. Clint Hoover brings a wealth of experience not only into the day to day operation, he has also brought his real world experience into the development of the new enhanced line of camouflage patterns currently being introduced. “Our focus has historically been on the Special Operations community, this includes JSOC, Tier 1, SOF assets worldwide, further to that, Tactical Law Enforcement, Three Letter Agencies and OGAs” Hoover stated. “With the now complete X line of patterns, we have re-doubled our focus, and partnered with only like-minded gear and uniform manufacturing partners”, according to Hoover.

Likewise, many of the A-TACS Brand Partners are stepping up to the plate. For example, TRUSPEC and A-TACS Camo have partnered in the creation of a brand new uniform style exclusive to the A-TACS X line, that will make its debut at the 2019 SHOT Show. “This uniform will incorporate many of the features Special Operations teams are looking for in the highest quality Vat-Dyed NyCo fabric–and we will be delivering it at a price unheard of for a garment of this quality”, said Drew Sylvester, Director of Sales at TRUSPEC. This uniform will be available in four of the new A-TACS Camo patterns in early 2019.

During the on-going “War on Terrorism” and the ever-changing threat landscape, new innovations in tactical camouflage were born. With adversaries, in every geological hiding spot around the world, SOF must be able to adapt their appearance within areas of operation in short order. With the popularity and over-proliferation of some camouflage patterns currently in widespread use, A-TACS Camos’ sole purpose was to offer our nation’s Special Operators and Tactical Law Enforcement professionals the most advanced concealment available and reduce the possibility of “battlefield confusion”. “We have created six new patterns to enable Special Operations professionals to effectively blend into changing environmental scenarios. These patterns can easily be mixed and matched to any mission-specific geographical requirement by simply changing and intermingling uniform tops, bottoms and nylon gear in any variable combination of the three main colorways in the X line”, according to Duke. During the development of the A-TACS X line-up, careful consideration was given regarding the use of common color with variable ratios in all three patterns in the central line, consisting of A-TACS AU-X, A-TACS iX and A-TACS FG-X. “If you look back to the Special Forces, Recon Team, Seals and MAC-V-SOG projects, they truly took camouflage to the next level. Mixing camo uniforms and gear further breaks up the human silhouette. This has continued up to current day, looking at recent operations around the world and now, through years of research and development, we have taken that concept to the next level,” Hoover stated.

The centerpiece of this concept is A-TACS iX (Intermediate Xtreme), introduced in 2015, with the bookends of A-TACS AU-X (Arid/Urban Xtreme) and A-TACS FG-X (Foliage Green Xtreme) being introduced on uniforms and gear at the 2019 SHOT Show in Las Vegas. Rounding out the line-up is A-TACS LE-X (Law Enforcement Xtreme), A-TACS (Ghost) Grey, and A-TACS AT-X (Arctic Tundra Xtreme). This family of concealment solutions provides end-users with a diverse choice of modular clothing to facilitate rapidly changing mission criteria

“It is our mission to improve the design, advance printing capabilities and concealment effectiveness of our camouflage patterns. Advanced capabilities include: a full effective camouflage system, nocturnal diffusion of light, optics perception, Near Infra Red, Thermal Threat Solutions and the cumulative global experiences of special operations soldiers’ usage of camouflage,” According to Hoover. “Stay tuned, the best is yet to come!” Check back often for additional product release information on the complete X-Series of concealment solutions.
