Crye Precision’s new pallettes

This is probably news to no one, but Crye Precision has released a number of variations of their patented Multicam®.  Most of the new pallettes compliments and overlaps portions of the main MultiCam® pattern; so pairing MultiCam® gear with MultiCam Arid™ apparel results in a well-coordinated concealment system. All according to Crye Precision. What I undoubtedly like best though is the Alpine. Let’s do a quick run down.

Multicam Arid™ was developed to effectively reduce the visual and near-IR signature of a person operating in desert environments that predominantly consist of open sand and rock.

MultiCam Tropic™ was developed to effectively reduce the visual and near-IR signature of a person operating in dense jungle environments, areas that predominantly consist of lush vegetation that remains relatively unaffected by seasonal changes.

MultiCam Black™ pattern was developed to meet the unique requirements of law enforcement officers operating in high-risk environments. It projects a distinctly authoritative presence appropriate for domestic operations. MultiCam Black™ is designed to complement an officer’s existing equipment and present a sharp, professional image for top-tier law enforcement units. Compared to the A-TACS LE this seems both useful and sincere in its approach.

MultiCam Alpine™ pattern was developed to effectively reduce the visual and near-IR signature of a person operating in snow-covered environments. It is intended to be used in every area of operation that receives significant snowfall. The MultiCam Alpine™ pattern can be paired with MultiCam® gear as needed to appropriately match the overall level of snow cover present.

Let us linger at the Alpine camouflage for a bit. In all fairness, there hasn’t been a lot of descent snow camouflages. At least not until recently. As the worlds conflicts are about to move from the Middle East to Eastern Europe and the Arctic it is a sensible decision, and Caleb Crye has always proved to be in the forefront of military equipment. In my mind MultiCam Alpine™ will do the job very well.

Other winter-oriented camouflages that are getting in the fight are the Penncott Snowdrift, Kryptek Yeti (and maybe Raid, would be interesting to see) and the Stealth PXL Snow Camouflage used in Vertx’s Overwhite Suit.

Let’s hope this development continues.
