The roughly 50/50 blend of nylon and cotton fibers make this fabric very hard wearing and durable, but comfortable enough to wear all day. It has a high thread count and crisp feel, but with a softer hand than the poly/cotton version. When you combine this with the rich colors and excellent colorfast properties of the VAT printing method, it’s no wonder that VAT printed NYCO ripstop is the go-to fabric choice for military uniforms around the world.
NYCO ripstop is available in a wide 65” width. It is considered top-of-the-line for making apparel that is comfortable and light but can put up with abuse. It also can be used with confidence to add a military-camo theme to any project where a cotton blend fabric would work – home dec projects, grilling aprons, bags and packs and so much more.
A-TACS iX utilizes the very latest in printing and camouflage design technology combined with the perfect blend of colors from the already popular A-TACS AU and FG camouflage patterns to create a pattern with vastly improved depth and definition. A-TACS iX Camo also incorporates enhanced edge detail in the transitional areas between light and shadow within the pattern to create the added illusion of depth while maintaining the unique A-TACS Camo “pattern within a pattern” concept. New A-TACS iX Camo is best suited for transitional environments with a blended mix of intermediate greens and desert tans.
