So far, the PHANTOMLEAF® products have only been supplied to special units in the military and police at home and abroad. Its effectiveness has been proven in use there. Due to the diverse demand, PHANTOMLEAF® has decided to also offer camouflage patterns for free sale.
The result is the camouflage pattern WASP II, which combines an exclusive look with a powerful camouflage quality:
Unique breaking silhouette.
In combination with complex structural algorithms.
Targeted manipulation of human perception based on medical expertise.
As a result, the object to be camouflaged is much more difficult to detect from close to far away and this against a variety of backgrounds such as grass, dry branches, leaves in different colors and brightness of an operational area (see camouflage pattern zones below). This considerably expands the user's freedom of action.
PHANTOMLEAF® has developed a system of camouflage schemes that are consistently modular and tailored to global use:
WASP II in the color variant Z2 (low growth) for regions with low-growing vegetation, such as grass and bush land and rock and scree in places.
WASP II in the color variant Z3A (tall growth without snow cover) for use in areas with high vegetation, such as deciduous and coniferous forests but also tropical jungle with a high adaptability for border areas such as bush and agricultural land or grass zones.
WASP II in the color variant Z3b (tall growth with snow cover) for use in regions with vegetation and rock and an interrupted snow cover.
WASP II in the color variant Z4 (construction) for use in human-altered environments from urban terrain to large vehicles such as ships, airplanes and trains to special scenarios such as oil platforms.
Made in Europe.

The hat is durable and breathes very well. Be aware that this boonie is cut to the European style. It has a very narrow brim. Also the sizes run a little small. I bought the hat that fitted my measurements, and it is a tad snug.
What I really wanted a good camo Boonie hat in Phantomleaf Z2. This is the much greener Z3. I converted it nicely to a Z2 using the PHANTOMLEAF Python Leaves G1 WASP II Z2 also sold by Hessen. This Boonie is well engineered with an adjustable brim and low IR signature. I really like the adjustable cinch, the webbing (to loop extra camo through) as well as the ventilation. Like I said in the title, this is a well engineered hat.
This Boonie is is great! Breathability keeps the head cool! Short brim for great visibility and the chin strap behind the skull keeps you styling and battle ready. The camo speaks for itself but the bag it comes in is over is overkill,,,,, It's a hat UF PRO not a diamond!
