The MultiCam™ pattern was developed by Crye Precision in co-operation with the US Army Natick Soldier Research Center, as an experiment to determine whether a single camouflage pattern could be effective in limiting the visual and near-IR signature of a person across a wider range of environments and seasons. After years of testing and refinement by the US Army, where it came in top out of all candidates, it has been tuned for production and is now called MultiCam™.

The pattern is subtle enough to reflect some of the surrounding colors of the environment. It takes on an overall green appearance when under a green forest canopy and an overall tan look when in the open desert. By adapting to varying local lighting conditions, the pattern blends well in many environments, elevations, seasons, weather conditions, and times of the day.

The design takes advantage of the way the human eye/brain perceives shape, volume and color. By using proprietary high resolution digital fades from one color to another, the colors and shapes of the pattern become hard to recognize and define. The wearer's profile begins to loose its edge and fades into whatever color or shape surrounds him. It works on the principle that an observer can see something but still not recognize it as anything to be interested in. Since only a very small portion of the human eye perceives color, the brain does a lot of “filling-in” for the eye. MultiCam™ takes advantage of this principle and helps the observer to “see” the pattern as part of the background.

The scale and contrast of the pattern elements are designed to work well when observed from both distant and close ranges. We all know the idea is to break-up or disguise the human form, but without a ghillie suit or a rock to get behind, this is typically done with heavy contrast between large elements of a pattern. However, high contrast, large element patterns stop working in open terrain (e.g. "chocolate chip" in open desert.) They also tend to stop working as the observer gets closer to the camouflage, since the large pattern elements end up being out of scale with the highly detailed surroundings of the observer. MultiCam™ relies more on a blending effect than a contrast effect to disguise the wearer. This effect allows it to perform in a wide range of environments, and keeps the pattern effective even at close distances.
