MMI Textiles – CTEdge Webbing and Binding Tape

Friday, December 2nd, 2016

MMI Textiles has introduced CTEdge Webbing and Binding Tape to mitigate the effects of white edge on worn gear. The CTEdge is created using patent-pending technology that gives the edge of the fabric a more concealed edge because it is woven with different color threads. It allows the edge to blend in much more with MultiCam behind it or another military-colored fabric. Below, you can really see the difference.

CTEdge Webbing

MMi Textiles offers their exxlusive CTEdge in both A-A-55301 and Mil-W-17337. It is also available in OCP by contract basis only. This product is often used in bags, vests, MOLLE systems, and other tactical gear. The following widths are available in Mil-W-17337: ¾” 1”, 1.5”, 2” 3”.

CTEdge Binding Tape

Their binding tape comes with patent-pending CTEdge that meets Mil-T-5038. This product is stocked and available in ¾” and 1”.

New Spec ACUs in MultiCam and UCP Available from Propper International

Monday, October 17th, 2016

Propper International has been a prime government contractor for decades, supplying clothing and individual equipment. They have just released the new ACU cut, for commercial sale in MultiCam and Universal Camouflage Pattern.

For those of you unfamiliar with the new cut, concurrent with the release of the Operational Camouflage Pattern, the service made some changes to the design of the Army Camouflage Uniform.

Coat

– Mandarin collar has been replaced with a fold down collar design
– Upper sleeve pocket hook and loop flap closure replaced with a zipper
– Pocket lengthened by one inch
– Elbow patch pad removed and hook and loop for patches removed, but double fabric reinforcement has been retained
– Sleeve pen pocket reduced from three pen channels to two

Trousers

– Drawstring removed from waistband
– Cord and barrel removed from cargo pocket and replaced with button closure
– Knee patch pad removed and hook and loop for patches removed, but double fabric reinforcement has been retained
– Hook and loop on lower leg pocket flap replaced with button closure

For many, the MultiCam pattern is welcome, considering it outperforms the Army’s OCP. However, many of you may be scratching your heads over the UCP offering. This is because some organizations outside of the Army, continue to use the pattern.

The uniforms are available in 50/50 NYCO or Battle Rip 65/35 PolyCotton in MultiCam and 50/50 NYCO in UCP.

Oakley Introduces MultiCam Tropic

Wednesday, September 14th, 2016

Oakley has introdcued MultiCam Tropic to a couple of their most popular designs. I prefer the Gascan.

SI Gascan in MultiCam Tropic

Gascan lenses are cut from the curve of a single lens shield, then mounted in the frame to maintain the original, continuous contour. The look is so unique, we customized our corporate logo just for this eyewear. The lightweight O Matter® frame material offers premium comfort while our Three-Point Fit retains the lenses in precise optical alignment.

• Plutonite® Lenses offer top UV Protection filtering 100% of all UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light up to 400nm
• Three-Point Fit holds lenses in precise optical alignment while eliminating pressure points common with frames that hook the ears
• O-Matter™ stress-resistant frame material is both lightweight and durable for all-day comfort and protection

SI Holbrook in MultiCam Tropic

Holbrook is a timeless, classic design fused with modern Oakley technology. Inspired by the screen heroes from the 1940s, 50s, and 60s, this design epitomizes the spirit of exploration and adventure. The iconic American frame design is accented by metal rivets and Oakley icons, perfect for those who seek equal parts performance and style.

• Plutonite® Lenses offer top UV Protection filtering 100% of all UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light up to 400nm
• Patented High Definition Optics® (HDO®) provides superior optical clarity and razor-sharp vision at every angle
• O-Matter™ stress-resistant frame material is both lightweight and durable for all-day comfort and protection

MMI Textiles Announces MultiCam Woven Loop

Thursday, September 8th, 2016

9/8/2016 — As a part of their new printed narrow fabrics line, MMI Textiles, Inc. is now offering printed loop in both MultiCam® and OCP. MMI is responding to a need within the industry for printed loop and now after approval, the product is available for sale. It is the only printed woven loop that is made to A-A-55126 available in the market, and has excellent quality and resolution.

It’s just one of the many products within their new line.

Most of these are currently in stock in MultiCam® pattern, with MultiCam® Alpine®, Arid, Black and Tropic patterns being developed in the coming weeks. OCP is being printed on various materials as needed and by government contract only. Samples are available from MMI by request.

These materials are 100% Berry Compliant and created with patent-pending technology that gives the usual “white-edge” much more of a concealed appearance.

This news illustrates MMI’s on-going commitment to serve the military and tactical industries. For any inquiries or interest in samples, call MMI at 440-899-8050 or email them at info@mmitextiles.com.

New ACU Construction Available in MultiCam

Monday, July 18th, 2016

I have been waiting for this. Finally, someone has introduced the new ACU cut in the MultiCam camouflage pattern. As you know, the Army’s Operational Camouflage Pattern, popularly referred to as Scorpion is restricted to military sales only, while MultiCam is commercially available. But even more important, by the Army’s own patent, we know that MultiCam outperforms OCP.

Available exclusively at TacticalGear.com, the new ACU features all the updates made during the 2015 reinvention, including replacing hook-and-loop pockets with more discreet closures and a roomier upper-sleeve pocket.
