For this (I Can’t Believe It’s Not) MultiCam Monday, we’re reposting an old classic from three years ago. Why is it always during Halloween that the MultiCam ripoffs come out of the woodwork?
Available at Target, the boy’s Army Command Costume consists of two pieces, the uniform and helmet. It’s made from 70% polyester and is available in small, medium and large sizes. My favorite aspect of this costume is the ‘Army’ tag; it’s a nice touch that lets other people know: “Yes, I am pretending to be an Army Commando this fine Halloween’s night. Candy, please!” There’s also something familiar about the camouflage that I can’t quite put my finger on…
This costume USMC Cover I found today on sale at a Halloween supply store features a camo pattern that is very reminiscent of Crye precision’s standard MultiCam. As expected from a costume piece, it features a few defects, however it’s a pretty decent piece especially for the five dollars I got it for.
5.11 Tactical came up with their own ‘gun camo’, which is a camouflage-inspired design that uses the silhouettes of more than a few popular and/or iconic firearms. This cap in particular, which features the pattern, is made from polyester fabric with a dobby mesh six panel design, adjustable fit, and integrated sweatband.
The 5.11 Gun Camo Cap seems to be the only product currently available on the official 5.11 Tactical website that uses the Gun Camo, however they’ve also done a line of beanies, also available in Brown and Grey, that are available from numerous online retailers.
These images were sent to us by TFB reader Case Jumper via Facebook. They’re of a Mandalorian (that’s Boba Fett’s race for those not in the know) armor that’s been given the ole Crye treatment. Great stuff Case! You can see more on his Facebook profile page, linked above.
CamoTrading.com is a website that sells hundreds of wildlife-themed home decor and clothing items. Everything from camo bedding to glasswear to handbags and more is on offer, in camouflages such as Realtree AP. They also sell other hunting themed items, such as deer clocks, a shotgun shell bird feeder, and camo cooking utensils.
Just in case that whole Scorpion thing with printers blows up in their face, I suggest PEO Soldier take a hard look at MultiDoge as a backup plan.

Kryptek’s Tartaros hoodie is a piece of casual wear that can either be worn as part of a layering system or as a stand alone outer layer piece. Made from 97.5% polyester and 2.5% spandex, the Tartaros features a stretch fabric front kangaroo pocket and 3-piece hood with draw adjustment. Currently available in three Kryptek patterns, in four configurations: Highlander, Typhon w/ black, Typhon w/ red, and Yeti.
Under Armour’s Mobtown basketball shoe features a slim athletic cut designed to offer better mobility by eliminating the bulk of extra fabric. The camouflage upper, called Dune (it’s not licensed MultiCam, but it’s certainly inspired by Crye’s pattern), is made from water-resistant canvas. The ultra-soft collar lining and full-length Micro G sockliner make up the inside of the shoe.
Also available with a Black full-grain leather upper.

I was ‘out and about’ last night, and I happened to spot these ‘Limited Edition Kryptek Military Heroes Pack’ boxes of Mountain Dew. Reportedly, only the boxes get the camo, not the cans. You can pick these up anywhere they sell Mountain Dew.
There’s been a big push recently for gray colored gear thanks to its ability to “blend” into the urban landscape. Well, as it turns out, Disney’s practically perfected this ideal in their own proprietary Go Away Green and No See-um Gray colors. They coat their utility and auxiliary buildings in their various parks with the colors so that the guests pass by the buildings without noticing them.

Also, it may help to turn down the volume before viewing; the music’s kinda loud.

A reader of ours shared a couple of Kryptek kilts custom made for him by Gryphon Work Shop out of Vancouver, Washington. The kilts were done in Typhon and Mandrake patterns. These patterns aren’t a standard option on the Gryphon Work Shop site, although you can make a request for these and more patterns if you choose.

Just in case you missed it, SSD ran a story on Crye Precision’s expansion of the MultiCam line to include new patterns.
Today, Crye Precision officially released four new variant camouflage patterns based on the ever popular MultiCam; Arid, Tropical, Alpine and Black. Each is designed for specialized use while the classic MultiCam transitional pattern continues to be great for more universal wear as it tends to blend into most any environment. While Transitional and Black are available for order now, Duro Textiles will have the other new patterns available for order soon.
One new feature you may notice is that the MultiCam family of patterns all feature branding embedded in the print.
MultiCam is the combat-proven solution for concealment when operating in widely varied and mixed terrain. While MultiCam is suited to an extremely wide selection of environments, we have developed three new patterns that are optimized for narrower areas of operation. These new patterns work well with the primary MultiCam pattern to meet the needs of these extreme environments, thus expanding the performance envelope of the MultiCam family to cover nearly every possible environmental condition. The MultiCam patterns can be used alone or in conjunction with each other to meet nearly any operational requirement.
The same user now has more system-level options. For instance, a MultiCam chest rig can be paired with a MultiCam Tropic uniform for a known jungle deployment. Similarly, a MultiCam vest and pack can be paired with a MultiCam Arid uniform for activity within an open sand and rock desert. MultiCam Alpine is best suited for any environment encountering significant snowfall, while MultiCam Black is designed to offer domestic agencies a distinct and authoritative presence suited to law enforcement operations.
The MultiCam patterns were developed to provide maximum effectiveness across diverse operating environments with a minimum logistical burden. The patterns all have distinct roles but are designed to work together as a system to meet the needs of nearly any operating environment, all while helping the wearer do so with the least amount of kit possible.
THE MULTICAM FAMILY OF PATTERNS CONSISTS OF:
MultiCam: The base – the original combat-proven pattern that offers the widest range of environmental effectiveness – ideally suited for apparel & gear that must be employed throughout mixed or varied environments.
MultiCam Arid: A pattern intended for open sand and rock – ideally suited for apparel when working exclusively in bright open desert terrain.
MultiCam Tropic: A pattern intended for deep verdant jungle use – ideally suited for apparel when working exclusively in a dense jungle environment.
MultiCam Alpine: A pattern intended for snow-covered areas – ideally suited for over-garments and gear covers when/where snow cover is present.
MultiCam Black: While not a geographically-based pattern, MultiCam Black gives law enforcement groups a sharp and authoritative presence suited to domestic L.E. operations where projecting a strong and distinct image is a critical concern. MultiCam Black is designed to complement a wide range of existing armor and gear colors (for instance, green or black vests both look well-matched when paired with MultiCam Black uniforms).
Along with the release of the new patterns, MultiCamPattern.com has been updated.
