Brand Ambassador, Travis Gibson Documentary Profile Premiers this Month

Brooklyn, NY, February 16, 2018 – MultiCam®, the combat-proven, complete family of concealment solutions for those who demand the best, has announced the next video in their Team MultiCam® Brand Ambassador series with the release of the Travis Gibson Documentary feature.

This next video in the series, set to premiere February 16th on MultiCam®’s YouTube channel, is focused on the nationally ranked multi-gun shooter and his unparalleled drive to be the best at what he does.

Gibson is a nationally ranked shooter in 3-Gun, long-range rifle, USPSA and Steel Challenge. He is a proud husband, father (his son Wyatt also competes in the 3-gun circuit) and business owner of MGM Targets. Gibson’s dedication and drive is what keeps him training, traveling and going above and beyond to be the best.

In an effort to help grow the shooting sports and give back to the community, Gibson frequently hosts “ladies only” handgun classes and junior classes at very low rates, or even no charge. He is also involved with the MGM Junior Pistol Camp and the MGM Junior 3-Gun Camp; a competition shooting camp for junior shooters held at Parma Idaho every July. The camp boasts six of the world’s best shooters as instructors teaching up to 65 students during the two-and-a-half day class. Parents oftentimes report to Gibson that the class is a “life changing event” for their child.

CORDURA Brand and Crye Precision Bring Lightweight Comfort to Latest Mil-Spec Uniforms

Monday, January 22nd, 2018

New CORDURA® x Meet the Maker series video to highlight Crye’s state-of-the art G4 uniform

WICHITA, KS – January 22, 2018 – INVISTA’s CORDURA® brand and Crye Precision have collaborated to create a new generation of military uniform fabric technology powered by the long-lasting durability of CORDURA® fabric combined with lightweight comfort and added mobility. Made from Crye Precision’s proprietary VTXTM Ripstop material constructed with stretch CORDURA® NYCO fabric technology, the latest G4 Uniform represents the next generation of combat apparel. It will be featured in the latest installment of the CORDURA® brand’s ‘Meet the Maker’ series, which highlights the two brands’ longstanding collaboration.


“We are excited to once again be working with Crye Precision on the cutting-edge of military fabric technology,” said Cindy McNaull, global CORDURA® brand and marketing director. “The goal of our Meet the Maker series is to highlight the power of collaborative problem solving with our brand customers, and celebrate our shared values. This latest installment with Crye is a testament to passionate innovation and our long-term durable bond.”

The G4 Uniform features a slim-cut design for reduced bulk and enhanced wearer comfort under body armor. INVISTA T420HT patent-pending high tenacity fiber technology helps optimize the pants and sleeves for lightweight strength, and zippered shoulder pockets leave room for essential gear.

“From uniform fabrics to heavy duty plate carriers to backpack fabrics, CORDURA® brand is the gold standard for nearly our entire line,” said Gregg Thompson, co-founder of Crye Precision. “We’ve been working with CORDURA® fabric since our very first G1 uniform, and we continued to use it in our AC uniform and G3 uniform after that,” added Johanna Bloomfield, lead designer at Crye Precision. “For G4, we wanted to create a fabric that was lighter and stronger than our current fabric.”

The G4 uniform’s VTXTM Ripstop fabric construction offers multiple benefits when compared to standard 50/50 NYCO Mil-Spec material. Driven by a 17% lighter weight and 4x more breathable material, its comfort properties are key for consumers who are often wearing uniforms for long and demanding periods of time. In the field, its practical technologies include 3x higher tear strength and 60% faster drying fabric.

“The most rewarding part of the job is knowing that the products you’re designing are being used in the real world by end-users that are rappelling, climbing over walls and fast-roping out of helicopters,” said Brad Thomas, retired special forces and product manager at Crye Precision. “Our new G4 uniform and fabric is so reliable, the servicemen don’t have to think about it. And I don’t think we would have had the success that we have had without CORDURA® fabric.”

To experience the story behind the collection, view the new CORDURA® + Crye ‘Meet the Maker’ video here. Or stop by the Crye Precision booth #32403 at SHOT Show in Las Vegas, January 23-26, 2018. The uniform will also be on display at Outdoor Retailer + Snow Show in Denver, January 25, 2018 at the CORDURA® brand booth #54037-UL.
