Kryptek Highlander is one of ten contemporary camouflage patterns designed by Kryptec Outdoor Group for tactical operators working in various transitional environments. Innovative Kryptek designs incorporate cutting edge technology and include verified camouflage concepts, successfully imitating foliage and animal, as well as marine and geographic visual features. Just as the other Kryptek camo patterns, Highlander makes use of a multi-directional design to successfully conceal in a huge number of landscapes with either lateral or vertical flow, at both close and long ranges. Two layers of transitional shading on the background, foregrounds with sharp random geometrical shapes, and a light-reflecting gradient with colour schemes selected to mimic natural surroundings (browns, greens, greys and beiges) help to create a three-dimensional effect which works well in a mixed terrain of various geographical regions and elevations. Kryptek camouflages became largely popular amongst Hunters, Airsoft and Paintball players as well as Special Operations and Law Enforcement personnel, and were applied to a great amount of combat clothing and equipment, including Helikon CPU shirt and cargo trousers now available at the UK based Military 1st online store.
