Every two weeks SSD showcases a different MultiCam print fabric from Duro Textiles LLC. This week, we are covering Omega. MultiCam is a single camouflage pattern designed to hide the wearer in varied environments, seasons, elevations, and light conditions. After a great deal of commercial success and adoption by elements of US Special Operations Forces, in 2010 MultiCam was selected for use by the US Army as its Operation Enduring Freedom Camouflage Pattern (OCP).
Duro prints on genuine Cordura fabric from Invista. A light-weight fabric, 330D Cordura is used by many manufacturers for use in targeted applications in concert with other materials to lower the overall weight of the item. Additionally, certain manufacturers build specialized load carrying items using primarily 330D for ultralight-weight items. This material is coated on the back side for water resistance and features a face side finished with a durable water repellent.
