At the time of this listing, there are ZERO Crye Precision Combat Pant CP4 FR for sale anywhere on the web. This pair is only issued to US Special Operators, particularly, USAF PJ's and CCT's. If you are interested in the most authentic kit possible, then you must have this pair of pants. PJ's and CCT's don't wear Crye's Army AC combat pants. Frankly, they aren't good enough for them. You can't buy these pants from Crye--they are only issued to Special Operations. Crye Precision, probably due to contract agreements, doesn't sell this pair of Combat Pants to the public.
PERFECT FOR EVERYTHING, CCT TSgt Jason S.
"Crye Precision with MultiCam is the best. Period. It performs outstandingly well and looks good. I've used it in Iraq, Afghanistan, numerous other countries, and on countless TDYs. Crye is the gold standard for military uniforms. Plus, it follows the number one rule in Special Ops: Always Be Cool (ABC)."
Brief History of Crye Precision:
The small, New York-based design firm of Crye Associates was formed in 2000 and in 2001 won a contract to participate in the U.S. Army’s project ‘Scorpion’, which was the first phase of FCS (Future Combat Systems) program. Crye’s involvement in the project included a complete redesign/overhaul of the uniform and equipment worn by the combat soldier.
One of the many innovative ideas/items that stemmed from that project is a new camouflage pattern. Unofficially referred to as the ‘Scorpion pattern’ until now (as it was born out of the Scorpion project), Crye is now producing it as ‘MultiCam’. Newly established Crye Precision is the manufacturing/production side of design-oriented Crye Associates, and has introduced the pattern, as well as apparel and equipment made in MultiCam. Fabrics in 1000d and 500d Cordura and 2 weights of 50/50 NYCO twill are now available.
The MultiCam pattern is a result of extensive development and testing over the past couple of years, by both Crye and the Army. It is designed to work in multiple environments (hence its name) – which include desert, woodland and urban. Although it came out on top in Army tests, the Army has decided to go with new ACU pattern which is basically a variation of the MARPAT pattern used by the USMC, with changes in color.
Crye studied the many factors that affect camouflage, like geography, seasonal changes, varying lighting conditions, shape and form in the development of the pattern and colours. MultiCam is comprised of six colors: dark chocolate brown, a medium/flat earth brown, MJK khaki/green, medium green, desert pink, and a light grey (the base fabric natural color).
What makes it difficult to describe (and see) is that some of these colors are gradiated and fade into each other in some places. Another feature of MultiCam is that is does not consist of a uniformly tight pattern that repeats itself frequently. The medium shades of color alternate in a larger pattern, so that an area will change from a predominantly green hue to a brownish one a yard down. The small blotches of grey and dark brown will sometimes cluster in one area, then be absent in another.
This combination of tight pattern and larger, 'seasonal change' enables MultiCam to work both close up and from a distance away. The large changes of overall tone break up one the silhouette of the larger form while the smaller patterns blend it with the immediate environment. Crye coined the term 'macroflage' for the way the distribution of large areas of color works.
