More Photos of Mirage Camo: Gear and Uniforms

Bulldog Tactical Equipment have kindly supplied some photographs of the Mirage Camo combat uniform being tested by US Army Rangers.  They’ve also sent photographs of products featuring the camouflage material which they currently have in stock. 

Remember, this was previously highly restricted information and these photos have never been released to the general public before.

In my opinion – based on what I’ve seen – “Mirage” is clearly a superior camouflage pattern vs. UCP (ACU), and appears to have an advantage over MultiCam as well.  Plus, there are a number of tried-and-tested products available off-the-shelf too.
So, if the rumours of an upcoming camo pattern selection competition are true, then they had damn sure better include this pattern.
Strike-Hold!
