Cordura Nyco fabric used in Royal Marines Commando uniform

[ad_1]

The UK’s renowned Royal Marines Commandos, one of the toughest and most elite forces, to get the right to wear ‘green beret’ their new recruits undergo one of the most gruelling selection ordeals. And the same standards are applied to the Cordura fabric used in the new uniforms they are now being issued with as part of the Future Commando Force initiative.

 

The Cordura brand takes quality assessment to punishing extremes with fabric test procedures that include aggressive abrasion testing to push durability to the limit.

 

This is the key strength of the new uniform which comprises individual Combat and Field ensembles all made from Crye Precision’s comfort weave MultiCam VTX Ripstop stretch Cordura Nyco fabric using Invista’s T420HT high tenacity nylon 6,6 fibre blended with cotton. Cordura Nyco fabric offers long-lasting comfort and performance for the wearer. The uniform is printed with Crye Precision’s MultiCam camo pattern by 1947 LLC through an exclusive international manufacturing license agreement.

 

Along with delivering the enhanced durability required for the Commandos in action, this fabric is a foundation for a new uniform that is lighter weight, has comfort stretch, has higher tear-strength, is faster-drying and is more breathable than typical 50/50 nylon/cotton uniform kit. Meaning it can be trusted and relied on in the most extreme and hostile environments on earth – from frozen wastes to jungle and deserts.

 

The Royal Marines uniform has been designed and engineered by a company with unrivalled in-depth knowledge of the specific demands of combat and tactical operations. Crye Precision are the ultimate specialists in their field and work closely with global military professionals to develop new and technically superior generations of combat apparel and related kit incorporating unique technologies.

 

Why did they choose Cordura fabric? “The next generation uniform is always our focus, and the fabric is always the starting point. We need people who understand what we’re trying to do. Who are willing to partner with us to help us get there. For us, Cordura is that partner. They set the technical standard and pretty much our entire line has some kind of Cordura element in it. It’s so reliable, it just performs in every situation,” Gregg Thompson, co-founder Crye Precision, said in a press release.

 

The new uniforms are supplied by Level Peaks under its five-year contract with the NATO Support and Procurement Agency. This British company describes its central objective as the introduction of more effective, integrated uniform systems. 

 

“We are very excited by this initiative. With Crye Precision’s world leading designs and Cordura fabric technology we are able to supply troops with a solution that is lighter, stronger and more comfortable. It will be worn by troops rapidly deployed to war zones, combat missions, commando raids, or providing humanitarian assistance,” Jim Clarke, programme director for Level Peaks said.

 

The Crye MultiCam VTX printed fabric is exclusively supplied by 1947 LLC who are a full-service textile solution provider specializing in military, tactical, and industrial products. 1947 LLC have worked with Crye Precision since the pattern was originally developed and are extremely pleased and proudly support this opportunity to introduce this new and innovative fabric into the European theatre for the NATO forces. “Entering into a new market is always exciting for our company but this is especially rewarding as we are honoured to support NATO and its mission,” Ben Galpen, co-Founder of 1947 LLC, said in the release.

 

Cordura NYCO intimate blend nylon/cotton technology was specifically created for military and tactical applications and has a 40-year heritage of success and proven performance in the field. The current range of innovative fabrics based on NYCO technology includes Crye’s NATO selected VTX Stretch Ripstop. The Crye MultiCam VTX Nyco stretch mobility fabric is powered by Invista’s latest high tenacity fibre technology, type 420HT for the ultimate in lightweight strength, comfort and enhanced durability.

 

“Through close consultation with military experts including experienced veterans we are constantly evolving Cordura fabrics to face new scenarios in different theatres of conflict. We’re proud to know that this fabric now provides NATO troops with a tougher way to handle the toughest missions and we salute the Royal Marines as the first unit to lead the way forward,” Allen Mortimer, military EMEA director for Invista Cordura said.
