Blue Force Gear’s proprietary high performance laminate, ULTRAcomp, far exceeds the military standard air textured nylon in tear and abrasion resistance. Its hydrophobic features allow products to stay dry and light, whereas air textured nylon retains water and gets even heavier when wet.

Blue Force Gear has attained the perfect blend of art and science to create a truly unique material - ULTRAcomp™.  ULTRAcomp™ combines the properties of a rubber based laminate - resistance to tear, abrasion, water, bacteria and fungus - and added a Cordura™ fabric facing for color or pattern and reduced IR signature. This is a case where the sum is greater than its parts. The combined strength of the two materials becoming one allows us to push the limits on weight savings while exceeding established standards of strength and durability.
