MultiCam Materials – LiteLok

Tuesday, February 21st, 2012

LiteLok is the second focus of our ongoing bi-weekly series presented by Duro Textiles LLC on the various fabrics they offer in the MultiCam camouflage pattern. 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).

Grey Ghost Gear uses LiteLok as one of the fabrics for their Lightweight Assault Pack. A simple, yet functional design it features a large main compartment as well as a side entry front pocket, modular webbing for attaching additional pouches and padded shoulder straps that stow away when not in use. The pack is already 30% lighter than comparable designs even before considering the weight savings of LiteLok. Additionally, the LiteLok provides a very good looking aesthetic with its visible ripstop weave.

Duro developed LiteLok fabric in conjunction with Glen Raven Technical Fabrics LLC. Weighing 30% less than traditional 500D nylon, Litelok exhibits excellent breaking strength and outstanding abrasion resistance performance. The double layer design is key to abrasion performance, while creating an ideal material for a lightweight backpack or vest.
