Crye Precision’s New Generation of Combat and Field Apparel Officially Available for Purchase

Monday, November 26th, 2018

Brooklyn, NY – Nov 16, 2018 – Crye Precision®, one of the leading suppliers of uniforms and personal equipment to the military, law enforcement and public safety markets, has announced their new G4 line, including the G4 Combat Uniform and Field Uniform is now available for purchase.

This next generation of Combat Apparel, from the company who brought you the original Combat Uniform, features the exclusive stretch VTX Ripstop™ fabric, and is constructed with Invista’s T420 high-tenacity nylon fiber, allowing the uniform to be light yet strong.

The integrated stretch allows for a more streamlined and slimmer cut with maximum mobility throughout the entire garment; with the stretch panels being replaced with the newer fabric throughout the entire document.

Pockets are low profile and engineered to reduce bulk while still allowing room for all essential gear. Mesh venting is incorporated for maximum air-flow and breathability.

The G4 Combat Shirt, features a set-in shoulder pocket with internal expansion and a set-in loop with a low profile pen pocket. Underarm panels are shaped for enhanced mobility, with darted sleeves for an ergonomic fit. The internal elbow pad pocket is minimal and lightweight, maintaining the streamlined fit without compromising functionality. Cuffs have VELCRO® tab closures, and the mid-height zip-collar allows for easy donning and doffing. The hem shape is longer in the back and the flatlocked seam construction at the side panels helps to minimize bulk. Enhanced fit and function are the top priorities.

The G4 Combat Pant features multiple pass-throughs to the low-profile cargo pocket to secure charges. The adjustable padded waist features a low-profile die cut VELCRO® adjust tab, and is lined with moisture wicking material. The front thigh pockets are larger (sized for a phone), mesh lined and have a secure zip closure; and a dedicated knife holder is included with a reinforced opening.  Tension and height-adjusters ensure maximum comfort and fit for the new AIRFLEX® IMPACT Combat knee pads; which are compatible with all Crye’s combat pants. This new combat knee pad provides impact protection exceeding EN14404 test standards and features a re-engineered flexible cap for complete freedom of movement.

The G4 Field Uniform also features VTX Ripstop™ fabric. The integrated stretch allows for a slimmer cut while maintaining maximum mobility – even under body armor.

The G4 Field Shirt, like the Combat Shirt, was created with maximum comfort and functionality as priority. Designed as a tailored utility shirt, the chest pockets are noticeably sleek, with flaps engineered to be tucked in for ease of access, along with zippered shoulder pockets that reduce bulk while still allowing room for all essential gear.

Like the Combat Pants, G4 Field Pants pockets are carefully located and intentionally engineered to reduce excess material and weight. There’s an adjustable waistband and mesh venting throughout the pant for maximum air-flow and breathability, providing the maximum comfort even under the most stressful situations. Compatible with all AIRFLEX® Field knee pads.

The team at Crye also made a conscious effort ensure sizing was consistent across all G4 styles. And that all garments fit true to size after laundering.  The G4 line has a more athletic fit than the G3 but the inherent stretch of the VTX™ Ripstop fabric enhances the wearer’s mobility and comfort.

“We at Crye support individual liberty and our inalienable rights.  Our military and police safeguard those rights” stated Crye Precision® Founder, Caleb Crye.  “We create products for people who operate in highly demanding environments. Our new G4 series uniforms are a direct result of listening to specific user needs and building designs around them, from the fabric to each feature and detail.  We’re honored to supply those who put themselves in harm’s way to keep the rest of us safe and we’re proud to be making all of our products right here in the USA.”

The G4 Uniforms are available now through the Crye Precision® website,; and are available initially in MultiCam® Pattern, with other colors being launched throughout 2019. As always, contact Crye Precision® for any customizations to orders.

Is MultiCam The Future Of USSOCOM?

Wednesday, September 26th, 2018

In the past, there’s always been something interesting in the Marine Special Operations Command Booth and this year is no different. This manikin depicts a MARSOC Critical Skills Operator equipped with the latest and greatest gear.

Currently, the United States Special Operations Command purchases specialized clothing and individual equipment for its personnel in multiple colorways. These include MultiCam, AOR 1 & 2, various shades of Green, Coyote, and M81 Woodland, to support the various missions of its different components.

US Army Special Operations Command and Air Force Special Operations Command have been using MultiCam for over a decade, while Naval Special Warfare Command has used the AOR 1 and 2 camouflage patterns for Desert and Jungle environments, respectively. MARSOC, the newest SOF component, has relied primarily on Coyote PPE and M81 Woodland uniforms due to years of working as advisors to the Afghanistan National Army. Otherwise, the CSOs have worn Marine Corps Combat Utility Uniforms and 782 Gear in MARPAT Woodland or Desert.

For some time now, SOCOM has considered whether to transition all four components to a common camouflage pattern in order to streamline acquisition. For a short period, this looked to be the case, but a fiscal reality may have thrown a glitch into the plan.

For years, NSW has relied on the AOR patterns which are costly to field due to the Command’s small number of personnel and supply chain fabric minimum orders. For example, even if a glove order only requires 2,000 printed yards of a specialized fabric, the printer may require a minimum of 5,000 or even 10,000 printed yards in order to make it worth their while. Fabric that isn’t used still has to be purchased, even if it won’t be used for some time. At one point the process was tying up so much of industry’s working capital that the government took on inventorying the fabric and doling it out for each contract. Considering the number of different, technical fabrics worn by special operators, and doubling the numbers to accommodate two different prints, this can get very expensive.

The idea was raised to transition NSW to MultiCam. Already, individual units within the Command were purchasing MultiCam items for deployments. On the surface, it made sense. But reportedly, when the numbers were crunched, it turns out that replacing WARCOM’s current complement of equipment with brand new MultiCam gear, is more expensive than continuing to pay more for gear printed in AOR. It’s understandable; they can’t have SEALs wearing AOR blouses and MultiCam pants, or carrying packs in one pattern with armor in another. There’s just so much already invested in AOR.

It will be interesting to see at what point the math begins to make sense. Until then? NSW will remain a hybrid, fielding AOR at the program level and purchasing MultiCam at the small unit level.

On the other hand, MARSOC’s wear of M81 Woodland was tied to a specific mission which has all but gone away. The time of the old Woodland pattern is once again over. Aside from that, there has never been a large purchase of SOF-unique clothing for MARSOC. Consequently, procuring clothing and PPE in MultiCam from here on out isn’t as daunting a task. In fact, it’s a smart use of limited resources.

So, is MultiCam the future of USSOCOM? Eventually.
