The roughly 50/50 blend of nylon and cotton fibers makes this fabric very hard wearing and durable, but comfortable enough to wear all day. It has a high tread 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.
Like the original A-TACS LE pattern, the new LE-X variant was developed primarily for use by Urban and Metropolitan SRT teams conducting low-light operations. The pattern is also suited to a wide range of other tactical military and law enforcement applications.
The Black, blue and grey coloration in A-TACS LE-X also works well with the black nylon gear utilized by many SRT personnel, which allows for easier integration into service.
