MultiCam Materials – LAMBDA NTS

Every two weeks SSD showcases a different MultiCam print fabric from Duro Textiles LLC. This week, we are covering LAMBDA NTS. MultiCam is a single camouflage pattern designed to help the wearer hide 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).

LAMBDA NTS is a high-performance, super smooth fabric designed for technical baselayers. In the past it has been used for cycling jerseys and running tights. It features a high spandex content that dramatically increases stretch and compression properties. Since it was designed for use as a baselayer, it also incorporates anti-microbial protection and moisture wicking properties.

Specs
Finished Width – 58 inches cuttable
Finished Weight – 3.75 oz/yd² approximately
Fiber Content – 92% Microfiber Polyester/8% Spandex

LAMBDA NTS was just released during SHOT Show and is so new that no one has picked it up yet but I think it’s going to make some great T-shirts. But that only makes sense as NTS stands for Next To Skin. I was able to check out a swatch at SHOT Show and it has a very cozy hand. It might also be incorporated as a stretch panel in other garments or perhaps as a torso section for a non-FR, fully printed combat shirt. I can’t wait to see how it’s used.

Duro offers progressive pricing based on the number of yards ordered. For more information on this or any of the full line of MultiCam fabrics visit www.multicamfabric.com or email Galpen_Ben@DuroLink.com.
