A-TACS (Advanced Tactical Concealment System) emerged into the camouflage scene with their hit trio of patterns, including AU (Arid/Urban), FG (Forrest Green), and LE (Law Enforcement). In 2015 they announced a new line of patterns as part of their "X" series of camo. The first of these was A-TACS IX (Intermediate Xtreme) which was designed to bridge the gap between AU and FG. The second of these "X" patterns is A-TACS ATX (Arctic Tundra Xtreme).
The inclusion of an arctic design solidified A-TACS as a complete camouflage solution as their entire lineup of camouflage contains something fit any application or location, including the extreme cold. From white to black and everything in between, A-TACS Camo has effective camouflage to fit any environment.

A-TACS ATX was designed exclusively to be worn during the Winter season or in extreme environments where cold and snow are ever present. This pattern blends in perfectly to the snow, where everywhere you look the scenery is dominated by shades of white and light gray colors. Even winter wonderlands contain shadows and other breakup, which makes A-TACS ATX a much better alternative than using solid white finish.
Soon after the launch of the ATX camouflage, it quickly became adopted by the Norwegian Special Forces as their official tactical camouflage to be worn by their personnel. A-TACS ATX is definitely a specialty camouflage pattern to be worn in remote locations. It may not work in as many locations as the IX pattern can, but should you ever find yourself in the harsh winter cold, you can't go wrong with Arctic Tundra Xtreme from A-TACS Camo.
