MultiCam Pattern Expands Distribution Through 1947 LLC

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014

If you’re an international MultiCam customer, you’ve probably already run across a new company named 1947, LLC when they became the exclusive international distributor of MultiCam fabrics earlier this year. Founded in May, 2014 by two textile industry veterans, 1947 LLC develops and sources woven and knit fabrics globally. In fact, while they are a US company, they also maintain a Shanghai office that ensures their customers will receive the same quality and service they experience in the US.


No matter where you are, if you’ve been using MultiCam for any amount of time, the names at 1947, LLC won’t come as a surprise; Founders Ben Galpen and Ed Ricci as well as Vice President of Sales Bryan Boulis are well known. Not only is this team the international distributor for MultiCam, they are also responsible for new fabric development here in the US.

The firm has partnered with well known brand Texcel Industries to be their exclusive international and new business development partner. They also work with an ever growing list of new licensees to offer MultiCam fabrics.


What this means for the Multicam brand is expanded commercial fabric offering through additional licensed printers. This results in more inventory and options for consumers and fabric development opportunities for manufacturers. Not only that, you’re going to see new nontextile Multicam solutions coming very soon out of this arrangement.

Crye Precision Offering Arid, Black & Tropical MultiCam Field and Combat Uniforms

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014


Crye Precision has been supplying limited numbers of MultiCam Arid and Tropical clothing to specialized units for several months now. Late yesterday afternoon they released them to the public. Currently available are G3 Combat Shirts and Pants in MultiCam Arid, Black and Tropical. Also, they are offering G3 Field Apparel in MultiCam Arid, Black and Tropical.

In addition to Combat and Field clothing in the new patterns, they’ve also released the Combat Pant LE01 which was initially unveiled at SHOT Show as a lower cost alternative for Law Enforcement Officers and others who want Crye Precision quality but are interested in some different features.


The biggest difference are the different, front cargo pockets that are simpler than standard G3 Combat Pants. Crye’s site says that they are better for use while in a vehicle. The LE01 Pant is available in Black, Ranger Green, Khaki 400, MultiCam and MultiCam Black.


Get them while the getting’s good.


Scorpion W2 and MultiCam Side-by-Side

Sunday, August 24th, 2014

Like peas and carrots, the Scorpion W2 and MultiCam patterns are certainly complimentary but they aren’t exact matches.

MC-Scorpion Comparison

You asked for it, so here it is. Scorpion W2 is on the left and MultiCam pattern on the right. The lighting was not the same. However, the two side-by-side patterns are scaled based on the pattern repeat. This gives you an accurate view of how the pattern elements square up with one another.

A Look at Operational Camouflage Pattern (Scorpion W2 Variant)

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

Yesterday, SSD received several yards of the Scorpion W2 variant of the US Army’s recently adopted Operational Camouflage Pattern in 500D Cordura. As you can see, from these photos, it is similar to the commercial MultiCam pattern developed by Crye Precision and used by the US Army as OCP in Operation Enduring Freedom as well as various other DoD elements over the years. But, it isn’t an exact match. There are numerous differences in the patterns.


The May 2014 marginal marking is the date that the pattern was registered.

Scorpion W2 Pattern

Two striking elements are the rather wide brown and green-based bands that run across the pattern. Additionally, you will note that Scorpion W2 is less dense than MultiCam and lacks vertical elements present in MultiCam.


Here you can see the eight colors in the pattern’s palette. The pattern is 60″ wide and repeats every 25″ vertically, which is the close to the same as MultiCam.

Below, you can see the MultiCam pattern. The pattern is about 60″ wide with a 26″ vertical repeat. The pattern is much more dense and would seem busy when compared to Scorpion W2. However, we do have almost 10 years of effective operational use of the pattern which was used as a baseline pattern in the unfinished Phase IV of the US Army Camouflage Improvement Effort.

MultiCam Pattern Sample

Please Note, major coloration differences are due to photos taken in different lighting.
