Rihanna, Jay-Z, Common, Lana Del Rey….What do these celebrities have in common? They are all in on the camo trend!
Military inspired and camouflage fashion trends come back around every couple years and it just happens to be in right now. Huge fashion retailers have jumped on the bandwagon offering modified military looks that include studs, tighter fits, and high prices. Harry’s offers a lot of the staple pieces needs to pull off these hot fashion trends at a much more affordable price.
For guys looking to stay on point in the fashion game, a super easy way to incorporate camouflage into your wardrobe is with a pair of camo pants or camo shorts. You can go with the traditional style or a vintage wash. Jay-Z went with the traditional look, which is a stiffer, more crisp material. Camo pants can be dressed so many different ways. We really like pairing them with a bright pair of sneakers like Common to make the camo seem less military and more high fashion. Camo shorts, like the ones Lil Wayne is wearing, provide a more casual look and can easily be paired with hoodies, sneakers, and sandals.
Ladies, you too can find these trendy looks for less with Harry’s! If you aren’t ready to fully commit to the camouflage trend, then start out with a subtle camo hat like Rihanna. There are so many camouflage patterns available in the traditional patrol cap that you won’t have a problem find a hat to match your outfit. If you want a more bold look, get the paratrooper pants. Pair them with sneakers for a casual look or cinch the ankle openings and throw on some heels for a look thats ready for night on the town. Lana Del Rey has taken a men’s BDU coat and paired it with shorts and wedge boots.
We also have basic camo t-shirts that are also an easy and very inexpensive way to add camo to your closet. Also if your a local customer, check out our surplus section.

For those of you who love camo, we are sure you have heard at least a little bit about A-TACS camo, but do you REALLY know what it is or what sets it apart from other camouflages? Many people don’t, so your friendly staff at Harry’s Army Surplus has put together a little info to help you understand the benefits of using A-TACS.
A-tacs is a new and radical advancement in camo design and technology. It was designed to answer the call for better and more effective camouflage system integration for duty personnel in any service branch from military to law enforcement. A-tacs is designed as a universal pattern for a wide range of operational environments with additional supporting colors and design variants to follow. Many of the modern digital camouflage patterns currently in use have flaws. Most digital camo patterns use small square pixels. A-tacs by way of comparison uses very small organically shaped pixels. The end result is that all the hard 90 degree angles of a typical pixel are removed which creates a camo pattern that has a more natural appearance.
The square pixels that are used in the digital patterns to create the distortion effect do not replicate the shapes, forms, and shadows of the environment that are deployed in, especially when viewed through optics. The ninety degree angles and the limited use of natural colors can make detection easier. This then produces a blobbing effect when viewed from a distance. Taking this process a step further the small organically shaped pixels are placed within larger groupings to create a pattern within a pattern. This radical advancement means that A-tacs is able to conceal the operator far more effectively and at greater distances vs. many other camo patterns. The A-tacs camouflage is one of the best on the market and provides the ultimate concealment in the field.
There are two types of A-TACS camo: A-TACS AU, which is meant for urban and desert environments and A-TACS FG, which works really well in forested environments. If you want to stay ahead of the game, we suggest purchasing some A-TACS gear. Check out our selection of A-TACS gear and stay concealed!
