Here’s a little background on Murdock Webbing and their Jacquard weave.
So I’m in the Murdock Webbing booth when I spy a belt made from their Jacquard webbing in Kryptek Mandrake, treated with Biothane. I remarked that I didn’t realize there was Biothane webbing that thin. Then, the guys from Austrialpin added their Vobra buckle to the mix and we had a new concept for a belt.
The belt is not available, but the stuff to make it is.
Murdock webbing continues to impress with their variable width, jacquard weave webbing.
It’s available as soon as you place an order because each run is custom, based on the customer’s needs.
SuperFlo SafetT Systems recently came to Murdock Webbing asking for an FR Kevlar webbing with Neoprene that would pass the vertical burn test. Murdock answered the call and the resulting product is the Bunker Boot Mate.
The Bunker Boot Mate was created for use by Firefighters. It’s essentially an instep strap used to keep a Firefighter’s pants from riding up in the case he falls through a floor or crawling. Durable and FR? Sounds like something Soldiers could use when wearing FR combat clothing.
Murdock Webbing is now officially licensed to offer jacquard woven webbing in the popular Kryptek family of camouflage patterns and they look great.
Murdock uses specialized jacquard looms that weaves the camouflage pattern directly into the webbing. This not only provides a durable, double-sided product in the webbing, but also meets or surpasses all performance requirements for A-A-55301 Berry Compliant mil-spec webbing.
Murdock Webbing’s jacquard webbing can be ordered in standard widths of .75″, 1″, 1.5″, and 2″, with custom widths and weights available upon request. Highlander and Mandrake webbing are currently available, with Typhon and Yeti colorways in development, and to be released soon.
As far as I’m concerned, Murdock has become synonymous with Jacquard weave webbing. They offer a durable, double-sided webbing solution that is Berry compliant with the camouflage pattern not printed on, but rather woven into the webbing. And now, they’ve introduced not only new patterns to their line, but additional products as well.
Available camouflage patterns include:
-MultiCam: Rigid, Elastic, Bungee, and two belt weight constructions. New Heavy Duty Gun Holster with exposed rubber in development.
-AOR1 & AOR2: Rigid. Elastic and AOR2 Heavy Duty Gun Holster with exposed rubber in development.
-Realtree: Hardwoods, AP, Max 4, Hardwoods Blaze, Pink.
-A-Tacs: AU & FG rigid.
-OCP: Rigid in development, Multicam alternative for D.O.D. contracts.
-UCP Digital: Rigid, Bungee, Elastic.
Rigid webbing meets or exceeds the specifications for AA55301 and are available in 19mm, 25mm, 38mm, 50mm. Custom widths and weights are available upon request.
Murdock also offers these additional options:
-Nanosphere: Murdock Webbing is the exclusive narrow fabric company to offer Schoeller’s NanoSphere technology. NanoSphere repels water and dirt to create a self-cleaning finish and enhance durability.
-FR: Their FR elastic webbing passes APEL specifications using the rigorous ASTM 6413 vertical burn test method.
-Silicone: Multiple applications of silicone are available and are applied in-house.
-Monster Edge: Innovated at Murdock, Monster Edge significantly increases the useful life of sling and tie down webs at a competitive price while still providing ease of sewing.
-Durability: The jacquard woven construction has proven to be very abrasion resistant in repeated laboratory tests. Even after 2000 abrasion cycles, patterns are still intact. In the field this translates directly to an end product that remains effective, in terms of camouflage concealment and functionality, for a very long period of time.
-IR: MultiCam, AOR1 and AOR2 rigid webbing meet all NIR requirements established by Natick, and have been approved by a government certified lab.
As noted above, Murdock is currently still in development of UK MTP pattern and US Army OCP Four color design as well as holster material, but only small fine tune adjustments are left before releasing them.
The A-TACS AU and FG, as well as the AOR1, and the MultiCam belt weights are approved.

Tactical Tailor has just begun to integrate MultiCam Jacquard webbing and elastic into their 40mm belts, large radio and small radio pouches.
Murdock Webbing produces Jacquard weave webbing in MultiCam as well as a couple of other patterns. The camouflage is actually woven into the webbing rather than dyed. Due to its construction it is a little stiffer and thicker. It also grips buckles more than printed webbing. This can be a good or a bad thing depending on the application and your preference. Overall, I much prefer the Jacquard product as it retains the camo effect much longer than print.
Murdock Webbing has been officially licensed by Crye Precision to offer jacquard woven Multicam webbing. Using specialized jacquard looms the camouflage pattern is integrated directly into the web creating a durable, quality product. It meets or surpasses all of the performance requirements for AA55301 and is offered in standard widths of .75″, 1″, 1.5″, and 2″. Additionally, custom widths and weights are available upon request.
You can barely see the webbing overlayed on a sheet of MultiCam fabric. This is a good thing. The pattern is so well executed that it blends right in unlike the Government pattern webbing introduced earlier this year.
The double-sided jacqaurd woven MultiCam webbing meets all NIR requirements established by Natick, and has been approved by a government certified lab.
In addition to looking great, there is an added benefit to the jacquard woven construction. It has proven to be very abrasion resistant in repeated laboratory tests, maintaining the integrity of the MultiCam design even after 1000s of cycles on an abrasion machine. This means the pattern is going to last you the lifetime of the product.
Additionally, the weave can really hold a buckle or clip in place. Murdock Webbing feels that this could be the single most important function of webbing as it relates to a military pack or carrying system. We agree. There is nothing worse than webbing that needs constant adjustment due to slippage.
What’s more, Murdock Webbing is the exclusive narrow fabric company to offer Schoeller’s NanoSphere technology. NanoSphere repels water and dirt to create a self-cleaning finish and enhance durability. They also also offer a silicone application that they apply in-house. Either of these treatments will protect the webbing and prevent water absorption to keep weight down when conditions get rough.
Murdock Webbing has been an approved supplier to the military since the early 1960s and has been a force in industry since 1936. Their mill is ANSI/ASQC ISO9001 certified and manufactures products that meet the highest standards of quality and reliability.
So, to sum this article up. Looks good? Check. Abrasion Resistant? Check. Grippy for Buckles? Check. Added Bonus – Inexpensive.
Murdock’s MultiCam webbing is woven right here in the United States and is Berry Amendment Compliant. Please contact Ray Clarke, VP of Sales, at 1 (800) 375 2052 x3014 or firstname.lastname@example.org for free prototyping quantities as well as a price quote.
