About OCP Camo – Scorpion W2

The Operational Camouflage Pattern (OCP), also known as Scorpion W2, was adopted by the United States Army in 2015 as the main pattern for the Army Combat Uniform (ACU). Officially replacing the Universal Camouflage Pattern (UCP) in 2019.

OCP also superseded MultiCam, previously used in the War in Afghanistan. Developed from the original “Scorpion” pattern by Natick Labs and Crye Precision, OCP was selected for its effectiveness in varied terrains. The United States Air Force replaced their Airman Battle Uniform (ABU) with ACU in OCP, following positive feedback from airmen deployed in Afghanistan. In 2019, the pattern was also adopted by personnel transitioning to the United States Space Force from the Air Force. OCP uniforms, offering improved concealment across multiple environments, were issued to Army soldiers deploying to Afghanistan, Iraq, Europe, and the Horn of Africa starting in early April 2015.

About Military Issue Boonie Covers

The boonie hat, aka bucket cover, sun hat, and jungle hat, is a wide-brimmed, lightweight cover originally designed for military use in hot climates. Favored by the US military, including the Marine Corps, this durable hat offers protection from the sun and rain. 

Quality boonies feature branch loops for camouflage and storage, plus a chin strap for a secure fit. Evolved from military gear, the boonie cap is now popular for fishing, hunting, hiking, and backpacking due to its versatility and adaptability to outdoor conditions. Its design, including a vented crown and flexible brim, makes it ideal for hot weather and adventurous activities. Boonies have been widely adopted in both military and civilian contexts.
