The Multicam uniform pattern (OCP) consists of a 7-color camouflage design that offers optimal versatility in variable environments. OCP, which stands for Operation Enduring Freedom Camouflage Pattern, makes up the innovative Multicam camouflage. Multicam provides the ideal coverage and disguise in multiple conditions, elevations, and seasons.
Unlike conventional camouflage uniforms that mock the surrounding environment by color matching, the camouflage pattern of the Multicam uniform (patented by Crye® Precision in Brooklyn, New York) is uniquely designed to blend and reflect the colors of the surrounding scenery.
Multicam uniforms have background colors of a tan to brown gradient with shades of lime green in between. The core of the Multicam pattern consist of a yellowish green gradient and blotches of dark brown and a light pink-like color spread throughout the design. Overall, this allows for the uniform's appearance to change from slight green to brown in different areas of the fabric. The impressive aspect about the Multicam uniform is that it hides a figure by tricking the human eye's perception of color. The Multicam uniform enables the wearer to blend in to the background environment solely utilizing an innovative camouflage pattern.

The Multicam uniform pattern was originally developed as an experiment. The test behind the Multicam uniform's camouflage design was to determine if the single camo pattern of the Multicam could effectively limit both the visual as well as near-infrared silhouette of a soldier amidst a wide spectrum of environments and conditions.
The need for a better camouflage pattern became apparent shortly after American military units deployed to Afghanistan. Upon deployment, soldiers wore Desert BDU's (Battle Dress Uniforms) and Woodland-style camo gear. Because these types of camo patterns were not the most ideal for the Middle Eastern environment, the demand for a more suitable camouflage uniform came about. Soon after this need was realized, the Multicam OCP uniform was born.
The creators of Multicam OCP (Crye Precision™) invested a great deal of time researching the specific details of how camouflage works. These experts studied the Middle Eastern terrain and its environmental elements with a particular emphasis in determining those areas that are difficult to hide and take cover. In addition, the masterminds behind the Multicam uniform carefully investigated how light influences various aspects of the environment. They also followed seasonal changes that would play a role in how a new camouflage uniform would perform.
After extensive research, the team behind the Multicam uniform pattern started applying their findings to developing the Multicam OCP. During the development of the Multicam, these experts consulted with military professionals to take into account their observations and concerns regarding the unique combat environment of the Middle East. By using digital imaging with over 100 layers of various color schemes, the Multicam OCP evolved into its first prototype and the preliminary testing of the Multicam uniform was underway.
The Multicam OCP uniform was extensively tested and evaluated for over a year and a half with the U.S. Army. To the surprise of both its creators and future wearers, the Multicam camouflage pattern was found to be far more effective than originally thought possible. As a result, Multicam uniforms hit the market and have grown to be one of the top camouflage patterns used by the U.S. Armed Forces.
