UCP (Universal Camouflage Pattern) is a camouflage pattern now used by the US Army, and it is a continuation of the familiar MARPAT (Digital Woodland). The greyish-coloured camouflage is, in addition to urban landscapes, designed to serve in marine and forest conditions, even though it is not really suitable for Nordic forests. The pattern has been found to be especially discreet with different night vision, etc. devices.
The ACU-model is a very practical and very form-fitting cut, which was originally designed as the U.S. Army service uniform, to replace the old BDU. The model was soon gaining popularity in other parts of the world, and today copies of the suit are manufactured all over the world.
On the other hand, this is no wonder, because the cut is designed with infinite precision and the wearer has really been considered. In addition, the material is a durability-proven nylon/cotton ripstop fabric, so you wouldn’t be able to immediately rip it. In practice, ripstop refers to a special treatment stage during which fabric-reinforcing threads (e.g. nylon) are sewn horizontally and vertically into the fabric forming a net of small squares, less than 1 cm that prevent tearing.
The jacket is closed with a zipper and Velcro. The jacket has two diagonal chest pockets and large sleeve pockets. All pockets are closed with Velcro. The collar is a raised “mandarin model” and can be closed on the front side. Sleeve cuffs are tightened with Velcro. The jacket also has three Velcro parts on the chest, on which you can attach, for example, a badge, your name and title.
