About Warg™

Many camouflage options have clearly recognizable patterns and elements that can be quickly defined. Roggenwolf looks to develop concealment that is difficult to view — period!

An effective camouflage pattern conceals its wearer in typical operating environments. To be effective, it must embody features that deceive multiple aspects of human visual perception.

Developed in 2008, the Warg™ family of camouflage patterns does this by combining a large-scale macropattern with a small-scale micropattern. Its effect is enhanced by Dwimor™ — a proprietary innovation that challenges the ability of the human eye to focus on the design.

Like most Roggenwolf® camouflage patterns, Warg™ can be adapted to more than one operating environment. For instance, a desert variant — Warg 5D™ — was developed with the assistance of Polish warfighters operating with the Afghan Ministry of Interior's Air Interdiction Unit. Received feedback indicated that the original colourway worked well in sandy desert, as well as in villages and towns.

Warg 5U™, on the other hand, utilises a colourway that New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) recently determined works well in jungle, woodland and urban settings (also see Ryewolf™). The effectiveness of this kind of colourway was demonstrated in Papua New Guinea as early as 2007 (also see Kumul 2™).
