This is I think third post I make concerning the matter. Special Ops seems to be starting to drop Omnipat products as it seems all of the new ones coming out dont have Omnipat color schemes. Does this mean SO will be making an official switch from Omnipat to Multicam??

MOATI is trying to find a new company to print the material and doent want to break the bank by having to order thousands of yards of the material..

there will be no official switch..

its just going to take lots of time to find a place to print it out and not cost Moati his first born to get.

Seeing as how Multicam is only one of about eight different colors/patterns most of SO's soft goods are available in... I'd say no, they aren't "officially" switching to anything.

Also, as SO45615 wrote, right now it's a supply issue. It's been discussed a few times in other topics.

When Tiger Stripe shut down we maintained the rights to OmniPat but we lost the factory that prints it. Basically, we have to start over with a new printer and I haven't been able to find one that can print it without forcing me to purchase thousands of yards of it at a time. I'm still working on it but it's a time consuming process.

Unfortunately we are actually back ordered on Omnipat Material, this is why it seems like there is such a low amount of Omnipat items available. We are working as fast as we can to get it back in stock, but it will not be available for several more months!

You can get Multicam, also, Coyote and Olive Drab will look great! If you take the space out of your postal code, it will let you ship to your area.

Thanks guys. I thought the other 2 threads had died. This must have been originally discussed on december but I had been banned for that month so I was away from the SO world for a while. Thanks again

I'm pretty sure it's just their printer. I don't know the details, but what I hear is that it is temporarily unavailable due to some sort of "printing" machine. Should be back up in a few months.

(I know the General Debate out there is Whats going on with OmniPat Production, But I just wanted to add this because the thread title was Multicam Vs. OmniPat.)

In Official Unofficial Tests, OmniPat and MultiCam are in a bit of a Standoff.

Crye Invented MultiCam back when the Future Force Warrior was beginning to make works with field testing it's new equipment for the U.S. Army. In 2004, it lost to the ACU Pattern Mostly seen today as the Digi Universal Pattern the Military Wears. However, in recent news, MultiCam is making a comeback, and was beginning to be fielded at the start of this year, making MultiCam the possible primary Uniform seen by U.S. Army soldiers.

OmniPat, as we all know, was introduced in 2007 by Spec Ops. It was field tested to be the best camo out there, able to serve in multiple environments. It's basis, from point of view, comes from MultiCam. If you pay attention, it has the colors of MultiCam, however, is more concentrated on a higher Contrast, and its base color is a green. It's purpose, however, remains the same. Field the Wearer with a [Near] Universal Pattern.

MultiCam and OmniPat have little difference. If I had to say, in close-ranged Field Testing, OmniPat beats MultiCam for the way it confuses the eye with a multitude of coloring schemes and the digital effect (as some call it.)

(Digital Effect: The Confusing of the Eyes in Coronation of the Brain to determine 'Fact or Fiction' with Digital-Type Camo Schemes. Mostly Seen in Close Ranged Confrontations with Digi-Camo.)

Digital Camo is more effective In Close range conflict, as proven by studies and why we use the ACU Digi Camo in the Army, because we serve in More Dense Urban Areas in Iraq and Afgan now that we control the general areas.

However, the battle between Long Ranged Conflict with Multi and Omni still is unknown to me. From what I know, you can tell a difference between contrast and pattern along with the natural surroundings when wearing Digi Camo at a longer range. As well, its sometimes more noticeable when your moving. As with MultiCam, however, you find that it's pattern suits longer ranged capabilities, able to keep a contrast and blend in still.

Over All, For Paintball, you are mostly limited by range, so I suggest OmniPat for Paintball over MultiCam. In some cases, MultiCam is more expensive as well.

However, I'll let you guys decide.

Yes, Omnipat is worth it. Not only is it essentially digital multicam, its purpose built for paintball.

I agree with you Iron Eagle, but the problem is Omnipat is pretty much out of commission until a new fabric supplier is found. That means you have to wait to buy any softgoods in that pattern or go to mullticam and that might turn people away if they have already invested into Omnipat like myself. I got some Omnipat vest pouches and was wanting to upgrade to better playing clothes like maurader or fusion but with Omnipat gone, I was afraid Multicam wouldn't work and Im either stuck waiting for who knows how long or rebuy everything that I bought in Omnipat in Multicam this time. I just recieved some Multicam in the mail and although the colors on Mulitcam is a bit darker, crossing the patterns shouldnt effect performance, but thats merely a hypothesis until I test it. Personally, I like Omnipat and would perfer using it than Multicam but we as of now are S.O.L

wait a sec.... I just thought of this. If you wore a Omnipat as your base and accented it with Multicam like on your vest and hat and etc. You might be able to reap the benefits of both patterns and further confuse the eye because of the eye locking on to the blotches of multicam or the digi effect of Omnipat, the I wouldn't be able to lock on to anything to identify you with since you will be crossing the two patterns on top of each other. So lets say you are looking for someone in Omnipat and you start to trace the outline of what would be someones legs but if that person was wearing multicam kneepads and belt the outline would be interupted because of the pattern change. If this theory turns out true, it might work with multicam as the base and omnipat as the accents. I'd have to test this.
