Company reps said the color is a mid-tone that is "a good drab solid in a wide variety of situations and surroundings."
With the ever growing focus on security in densely populated urban, suburban, and industrial environments, security forces need a pattern that works with man-made settings and yet is not overtly camouflage, according to the company.
Urban Wolf load carriage equipment works with blue, black, ranger green, and Arc'teryx LEAF Wolf uniforms in the urban direct action role as well as blending with civilian apparel for low visibility special reconnaissance missions, the company noted.
"Urban Wolf is basically the color of wet concrete, near the color values of asphalt, steel, and reflective glass," said John Felushko, Blue Force Gear's product line manager. "It was designed by Arc'teryx specifically as a better alternative to black and blue in the SWAT role but because of its ability to blend with diverse terrains, we like it as a general purpose colorway for many missions, terrains, and tactics."
New Blue Force Gear products in Urban Wolf are available now.
