With their innovative PenCott™ family of patterns Hyde Definition aims to provide the most effective multi-environment camouflage schemes available on the commercial and military markets.

  • 3-in-1 / 360° pattern geometry – the inclusion of large, medium and small fractal shapes makes the patterns effective at close, mid, and long range.
  • Depth + Blending + Disruption – the combination of multi-sized fractal shapes, high-difference boundaries and hypoacuitive dithering creates the illusion of depth and disrupts the shape of the wearer.
  • Complex tones and textures – the complex pattern textures and tones deliver superior disruption and blending performance than other patterns.


Hyde Definition now announces their long-awaited “urban” pattern PenCott-BlackOps™ – first seen as a sneak-preview for SPARTANAT at the IWA exhibition in Nuremberg.

Designed specifically for law enforcement, government agency and military special operations units – as well functionally extremely well as a “lifestyle pattern” – PenCott-BlackOps™ enables the tactical operator to operationally own the night and dominate the fight.  The darkness of the PenCott-BlackOps™ pattern will compliment units’ existing black kit and is also the ideal pattern for the blackest of black ops.  Whether you’re a down-range or downtown operator – PenCott-BlackOps™ is the perfect pattern for disappearing into the shadows of the man-made landscape, and for projecting a an intimidating, show-of-force image to visually and psychologically dominate your opponents.
