First Collection in Kryptek’s Obskura Pattern Now Available

The highly anticipated release of Obskura, a brand new family of camouflage patterns from Kryptek, is here, beginning with a limited run of apparel items to be expanded and completed through Fall 2021.

The first items available in Obskura include two pieces from Kryptek’s popular Valhalla collection, a long-sleeve half-zip and pant. The Valhalla Collection is designed for maximum performance in warm weather environments. Lightweight and ultra-breathable fabrics feature Kryptek Cooling™ technology, an advanced moisture management system designed to wick sweat from the body, keeping the user at maximum comfort in high temperatures.

A variety of accessories are also available in Obskura, including the Krypton gloves, Kiska beanie, Wyot Balaclava and Centurion Rifle Case.

The Obskura family of patterns includes three color ways: Transitional, Nox and Grom. The new apparel items are currently available in Obskura Transitional. Transitional blends in with numerous environments within the transitional classification of terrain that makes up 70% of the Earth’s surface. Proven through military studies and analysis, Transitional uses medium value colors based off the prominent Pantones found in those environments. These colors have a greater tendency to make use of ambient light reflected off surrounding objects for maximum blending effect.

Obskura was born out of the vast experience and insight Kryptek gained through the U.S. Army Camo Improvement Effort and development efforts with other Foreign Militaries. In summary, the macro-pattern of Kryptek’s original family of patterns became the micro-pattern for Obskura, and elements inspired by the extensively proven Tiger Stripe Camo became the macro-pattern.

Effective worldwide with multi-environment flexibility, Kryptek Obskura dynamically breaks-up the user's outline for a lower probability of detection, and improves effectiveness of concealment at longer ranges with bolder, well-defined edges that cause abrupt transitions between colors and a multi-directional flow.

Additional Obskura apparel items including rain gear and Kryptek’s new Sonora collection are set to arrive later this month.
