The Operation Enduring Freedom Camouflage Pattern, or OCP, uniform, also known as the "multi-cam," is the Air Force-designated uniform for Airmen performing "outside the wire" missions in Afghanistan. Airmen wearing OCPs will stand out from their Army and Navy counterparts with "spice brown" colored name and service tapes and enlisted ranks.
Therefore, KEL-LAC is proud to offer the OCP (Operation Enduring Freedom Camouflage Pattern), also known as the MultiCam®. Issued to the all U.S. Army forces and ground-based units of the U.S. Air Force who have been deployed in Afghanistan, MultiCam® uniforms and MultiCam® gear have been universally accepted by the following organizations:
173rd Airborne Brigade

U.S. Special Forces
U.S. Army MP Special Response Team
Various SWAT Teams
KEL-LAC Uniforms, Inc. has also been a source provider of uniforms for the following:

MultiCam® has been developed as a single camouflage pattern designed to reflect surrounding colors that exist in a variety of environments, at different times of the day, in varying elevations, seasons, and weather conditions. MultiCam® uniforms and gear can take on the overall appearance of dominant colors, such as green under the canopy of a forest or the tan appearance while in an open desert. MultiCam® addresses the real-world needs to find concealment in many differing environments with a basic kit of gear.
The unique design of MultiCam® is just another example of the way the science of perception can be applied to better take advantage of how the human eye will perceive color. Relying on the manner in which the brain “fills-in” the pattern colors of a background, MultiCam uniforms and MultiCam gear rely on blending rather than contrasting to provide the perfect disguise.
