The next installment of the Team MultiCam Video Series highlights Army Special Operations veteran Jeff Benrud.
Jeff’s incredible drive has not only made him a decorated combat veteran but also a two-time 2nd place finisher in the solo dirt bike class of the SCORE International Baja 1000. When not competing Jeff is training Special Operations groups in off-road driving techniques through his company American Offroad. He also works tirelessly to raise money for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation through his GoFundMe page. Please help Jeff’s charitable efforts by donating today. Thank you.
Many of you may know that MuotiCam has several brand ambassadors, but what you may not know is that they come from a wide variety of backgrounds and participate in several pursuits. The two things they all have in common are that they have dynamic personalities and they all use their talents to support great causes. Over the next year, you’re going to get an opportunity to learn more about each of them, thanks to this video series.
Brooklyn, NY – MultiCam®, a camouflage pattern designed for use in a wide range of conditions, has partnered with renown video production house, Foxhound Productions, to launch a documentary video series highlighting the Team MultiCam® brand ambassadors.
The fist video of the series, set to premiere February 1st through MultiCam®’s YouTube channel, is an action-packed cinematic thrill ride meant to highlight the collective talents of Team MultiCam®. After this initial release, viewers can expect monthly video installments throughout 2017 that will individually profile each team member with an in-depth look into their backgrounds, careers and hobbies.
Team MultiCam® is made up of a diverse group of individuals, both military and civilian alike. The group includes decorated service members Jeff Benrud (US Army ret.), Jamey Caldwell (US Army ret.), Luie Zendejas (US Army ret.), JD Potynsky (US Army Ret.), Mark Llano (USMC ret.) and Kyle Defoor (US Navy ret.). These men, who in addition to pursuing their passions, lend their years of military experience to help train active duty military units and help fellow veterans.
Jeff Provenzano (pro skydiver), Travis Gibson (pro shooter), Luke Johnson (off-road racer) and Ricky Johnson (off-road racer) round out the team. With each member also providing training to military and law enforcement in their respective fields.
Collectively through the Team MultiCam® Military Charity Initiative, the team raised $40k for various military charitable funds in 2016, and aim to raise even more in the coming year.
“MultiCam® has always been a unique brand known for doing things a little differently,” stated MultiCam® Brand Manager, Ernesto Rodriguez. “As we built this group of brand ambassadors, we looked for unique individuals with interesting stories who would showcase our brand to new audiences. This video series is our way of providing that platform for the team to do so; and we hope everyone can appreciate them as much as we do.”
Skeleton Optics, an American-owned performance eyewear company producing innovative, high-performance sunglasses for outdoor enthusiasts, has announced a new partnership with MultiCam®, a leading developer of military-grade camouflage patterns. The partnership allows Skeleton Optics to use three unique MultiCam color patterns for its Special Edition frames, offering customers a choice of design-specific camouflage patterns for an enhanced outdoor experience.
The Skeleton Special Edition frames featuring MultiCam camouflage patterns will be offered on Skeleton’s popular DECOY frame style, which offers the perfect blending of style and performance. Color and pattern choices include the DECOY-MultiCam Alpine™ Edition, developed for snow-covered environments, the DECOY-MultiCam Black™ Edition, designed for law enforcement officers and high-risk environments, and the DECOY- original MultiCam Edition, developed for a wide range of environments. DECOY-MultiCam Special Edition sunglasses have a MSRP of $180.00 and are available for purchase at www.skeletonoptics.com.
According to Skeleton Optics President and CEO Mark Llano, a MultiCam brand ambassador and co-founder of SERKET Racing, a regular entry in the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama, the partnership between Skeleton Optics and MultiCam offers Skeleton Optics a range of premium camouflage patterns that complement Skeleton’s flexible, Grilamid material frames. “We’re very excited about our partnership with MultiCam,” says Llano. “Leveraging MultiCam’s unique camo patterns with our technology-based designs offers our customers a superior line of sunglasses for any outdoor environment.”
Ernesto Rodriguez, Brand Manager at MultiCam, agrees, adding, “This is indeed a great fit for both MultiCam and Skeleton Optics. Their innovative lens and frame designs give us a terrific platform for extending our brand into the premium sunglass category.”
With the launch of the Special Edition DECOY MultiCam frames, Skeleton Optics continues its pursuit of the finest, high-quality materials. For lens technology, this includes polarized lenses with Tri-Pel technology, manufactured by Carl Zeiss Vision – the recognized world leader in optical technology – while the handcrafted frames are designed and manufactured in Italy.
Team MultiCam® has always been about relationships and common interests. Our brand ambassadors are respected in their fields, passionate about what they do and stand behind MultiCam®. From motorsports to competitive shooters, civilian to military, they are a diverse group. They believe in MultiCam® and represent us proudly.
This year the team has grown to include off-road racing legend Ricky Johnson, veterans and motorcycle racers Luie Zendejas and JD Potynsky, veteran/pro-fisherman Jamey Caldwell and veteran/off-road racer Jeff Benrud. They, along with current members Jeff Provenzano, Luke Johnson, Mark Llano, Kyle Defoor, and Travis Gibson, share a desire to give back to our nation’s service members, and we are excited to announce the 2016 Team MultiCam® Military Charity Initiative.
Each team member is supporting a military charity of their choosing. The 10 members will be collectively representing the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, the Navy SEAL Foundation, the Boot Campaign and Mission 22. All these organizations are doing great work to help disabled veterans and their families offset the often high price they have had to pay to serve their country. The Team MultiCam® brand ambassadors will be working hard to bring awareness to these issues and hope to raise as much money as possible so that these charities can better assist the men and women of our armed forces. Please, help them by visiting their GoFundMe pages, spreading the word and donating today. Thank you.

MultiCam Brand recently posted a post race report on the 48th SCORE International Baja 1000 and the efforts of Team MultiCam rider Jeff Benrud. The starting paragraph can be read below:
The 48th SCORE International Baja 1000 is in the record books and it proved to be a very successful one for Team MultiCam rider, Jeff Benrud. The Baja 1000 is the longest point-to-point off-road desert race in North America where the participants will race from start to finish throughout the approximately 1000 mile distance only stopping briefly for pit stops. This was Jeff’s 3rd Baja 1000 with the previous 2 as part of a relay team on a dirt bike. This year, however, he soloed the entire race. Jeff is an Army Special Operation veteran and now teaches defensive and offensive driving capabilities to the military special operations community at American Offroad with his business partner and off-road racing legend, Ricky Johnson.
UF PRO recently put together a series of action shots of the Striker BDU and other gear in the MultiCam and PenCott BadLands camouflage patterns. The images aren’t for the purpose of a comparison test, rather a chance to show off the Striker BDU in the patterns.
Manufactured by Pro Tapes, this cloth concealment tape features the licensed MultiCam pattern.
Essentially, it’s gaffer’s tape, of you’re familiar with the term. The vinyo coated cotton cloth tape is printed in MultiCam (other colors and patterns also available) and features a matte finish with a natural rubber adhesive which leaves no residue. It will adhere to steel, wood, plastic, rubber, fabric, glass and nylon.
