The Propper® IHWCU (Improved Hot Weather Combat Uniform) Coat in OCP is an authentic military uniform approved for active duty by the U.S. Army. Felled seams throughout the coat’s fabric enhance its durability, while a bi-swing back gives you an improved range of motion. Extra reinforcement in stress areas and seams are engineered to make these hot weather uniforms just as tough as standard ACUs, while the state-of-the-art nylon/cotton ripstop fabric is designed to go from drenched to dry within 60 minutes. A lightweight, breathable alternative to the ACU used by the U.S. Army made specifically to endure intense heat and other harsh climates. Sewn to military specification GL/PD 15-04E.

- Scorpion Camouflage, OCP – When Multicam was adopted as the replacement for UCP during deployment operations it was also considered for Army wide adoption for uniforms and gear. Licensing fees for the Multicam pattern were deemed to high and the US Army took to the predecessor, Scorpion OCP. Scorpion OCP had been developed alongside Multicam and shares most of the same design. Side by side Multicam and Scorpion look much the same, with differences being subtle. The base color of Scorpion is green, compared to brown in Multicam and the shading of all colors was changed slightly. Scorpion also has no vertical elements in the camo. Scorpion is currently referred to as OCP, or Operational Camouflage Pattern and is used for US Army Uniforms and most Army gear.
