Combat Coat – UCP

The Combat Coat – UCP (Universal Camouflage Pattern) is a digital military camouflage pattern. Formerly used by the United States Army in their Army Combat Uniform. Technicians at Natick Soldier Systems Center attempted to devise a uniform pattern. A pattern which would mask the wearer in all seasonal environments. Laboratory and field tests from 2003 to 2004 showed a pattern named “All-Over-Brush” to provide the best concealment of the patterns tested. All-Over-Brush was selected as the winner over ten other patterns. The disadvantage of an all-in-one pattern is that it is a combination of what is effective in many different environments and is less effective in a particular environment when compared to a specialized coloration designed specifically for that environment.

Soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan questioned the UCP’s effectiveness as a concealment method. Some felt that it was endangering their missions and their lives. In response, the US Army conducted several studies to find a modification or replacement for the standard issue pattern. In July 2014, the Army announced that Operational Camouflage Pattern would replace all UCP-patterned ACU uniforms by the end of September 2019. However, UCP remains in service in limited capacities, such as on some cold weather over-gear and older body armor.

These are authentic military uniforms and have been previously owned and lightly used.
