AUSA – Gore Military

Gore Military showed a prototype reversible garment. It features symmetrical performance meaning, the laminate is printed on both sides and provides full camouflage and full waterproof breathable performance no matter which side is out. Reversible shell garments have been done before, but not with a single fabric.


They’ve done this through some creative garment design that includes common pockets with dual openings and patterned seam tape. This version is the soon to be replaced UCP on one side and OCP (MultiCam) on the other. With the Army poised to select a new family of camouflage patterns, this type of garment adds a great deal of versatility is a single jacket.

    I would love to see this in Desert/Woodland Marpat. I wouldn’t hesitate to buy one.

    Why has the reversible camo been missing for all of the years? For example, MARPAT relies on 2 color-ways. Seems to fix the dual uniform & PPE load-out issues for logistics and on-sight concealment change needs.

    I submitted the idea for a reversible uniform to the Army’s “Good Idea Fairy website” several years ago. It wasn’t until mid March of 2012 that they got back to me and said the technology wasn’t available yet…well bingo! Thanks alot Army. If this goes big, I’ve got all my emails to back up my idea.
