Gear TRU-SPEC Uniforms Now Available in MultiCam Tropic and Arid Recoil Staff August 25, 2014 0 COMMENT Crye Precision released three new patterns last year to complement their original MultiCam Pattern, aka OCP (the first one). This was part of the U.S. Army’s Camouflage Improvement Effort, for which they developed the MultiCam Tropic and MultiCam Arid (respectively for Jungle and Desert environments), each offering a reduction in NIR signature. TRU-SPEC, the uniform manufacturer for military, law enforcement, and other public safety officers, has released the first ACU based uniform in these MultiCam Tropic and Arid patterns. This follows up their initial exclusive offering of Multicam Black late last year, which was primarily focused on law enforcement officers. TRU-SPEC has already been offering the original MultiCam (OCP) Version of the camouflage for quite some time and the only variant now missing is the snow pattern called “MultiCam Alpine.” The Alpine pattern is currently only printed on 100% Polyester, which is a great option utilized for Overwhites. The MultiCam Tropic and Arid Patterns are being utilized on the TRU (Tactical Response Uniform) Coat and Pant, as well as the ¼ Zip Tactical Response Combat Shirt. There is also a wide range of headwear available in the camouflage patterns including a Boonie Hat, Patrol Cap, and Contractor’s Cap. John Ammons, founder of UW Gear (a manufacturer of nylon chest rigs) has put out a video with the new TRU-SPEC MultiCam Tropic TRU Uniform in the woods of eastern Florida. Here you can see the uniform, boonie hat, as well as the 1/4 Zip Tactical Response Combat Shirt. All TRU-SPEC uniforms and headwear in the MultiCam Tropic and Arid Patterns are all manufactured with 50/50 NYCO Ripstop fabric. All items discussed are available through authorized TRU-SPEC Dealers such as PredatorBDU.
