SHOT Show – Duro MultiCam Fabrics

Thursday, January 17th, 2013

Duro has finally introduced a MultiCam pack cloth called Gamma. This 400D fabric is printed in the MultiCam pattern and available now. It’s a lightweight fabric with a slick hand. Some will say that it isn’t very abrasion resistant and compared to 1000D Cordura it isn’t. But remember, we won a couple of wars using pack cloth. It can be a great tradeoff for low weight, you just have to consider what you’re using it for.

MultiCam Materials – TenCate Defender M

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

SSD regularly showcases a different MultiCam print fabric from Duro Textiles LLC. This week, we are covering the Defender M fabric from TenCate. 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).

TenCate‘s Defender M is a 6.5 ounce fabric that balances durability, breathability, and comfort. Additionally, it provides FR protection at the fiber level meaning it won’t wash or wear out. Not only does it not melt or drip but also extinguishes in the event of an explosion or flame threat. Manufactured from Lenzing FR Rayon fibers which originate in Austria, TenCate mills the fibers along with other materials to create Defender M. It is then printed by Duro in the MultiCam pattern and used by finished goods producers.

Defender M is used in the manufacture of the US Army’s Fire Resistant Army Combat Uniform (FR ACU) as well as the Australian Army’s Operational Combat Uniform.

Duro will soon stock Defender M in the MultiCam print making the manufacture of FR garments easier than ever. They offer progressive pricing based on the number of yards ordered.

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’s Omega is a polyester mesh which offers a high tear strength matrix featuring a 2mm hole diameter. This means high breathability and the ability to look through fabric for camouflage applications. This product is commonly used for concealing vehicles as well as creating lightweight and high strength tactical gear. One place you will see it is on the new helmet covers from Crye Precision and FirstSpear. However, one of the best applications we have seen is Tactical Concealment Manufacturing Corp’s MCM Cobra with Hood which is a ghillie foundation.

Finished Weight – 8 oz/yd² approximately
Fiber Content – 100% polyester
Mesh Holes – 10 per inch both directions

Tactical Concealment’s MCM Cobra with Hood is a great ghillie foundation. It’s cloak-like design is intended for use as an “Assaulter’s Ghillie” and can be worn in conjunction with combat equipment such as armor vests and load carrying systems as well as low profile backpacks. Additionally, the hood is oversized to accommodate a helmet. Notice that the sleeves are short so that it won’t impede your ability to operate your weapon or other equipment. Finally, Tactical Concealment has bartacked a grid of 550 parachute cord along the hood, arms and back of the garment in order to add garnish and customize the Cobra for your own use.
