SPECOPS BS-1 Combat Shirt in PenCott Badlands

The Poland based military industry manufacturer and distributor SPECOPS Sp. z.o.o. was one of the first on the scene with a uniform in Hyde Definition's PenCott family of camouflage patterns. Their MBS-1 Uniform featured the GreenZone, Badlands, and Sandstorm variants for trials in the Polish Army's Future Soldier Project. Now they have provided us with photos of  their latest use of the camo with their BS-1 Combat Shirt in the transitional PenCott Badlands colorway.

As with many military combat shirts, the sleeves of the BS-1 are designed with mil-spec NYCO fabric, which carries over to the shoulders and chest for durability in key contact points and areas with the most range of motion. The torso is constructed with a more comfortable form fitting knit fabric utilizing Polartec's FR PowerDry. This material wicks moisture from the body for temperature control and provides flame resistant protection developed to protect troops in Afghanistan and Iraq whom faced the threat of improvised explosive devices.

Other key features for military form and function include reinforced elbows, adjustable wrist cuffs, loop faced bicep pockets with elastic hoops, and loop tape on the rear of collar for additional id. Below is a good shot of their PRM-1 medic pack in Coyote Brown, which gives some perspective on kit used in tandem with the combat shirt.
