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.
The MultiCam® pattern was developed to effectively limit the visual and near-IR signature of a person operating across a very wide range of physical environments and seasons. After many successful evaluations, after being proven in combat, and after becoming the officially issued pattern of the US Army for all Afghanistan operations in 2010, MultiCam® is the proven multi-environment concealment solution.
