Morbern, North America’s leading designer and manufacturer of vinyl coated fabrics announces it has formed a licensing agreement with outdoor adventure gear company Kryptek. The deal will make Morbern the manufacturer of vinyl bearing Kryptek’s signature camouflage patterns.
Kryptek develops proprietary camouflage for every global scenario, with 11 colorways tailored for specific environments. Unlike traditional stick and leaf camouflage, Kryptek’s design incorporates micro and macro layering inspired by artillery camouflage netting. It creates a three-dimensional appearance on a two-dimensional surface with near invisibility.
Morbern will translate Kryptek’s patterns onto vinyl using (n)deavor, an advancement in vinyl printing technology that uses a proprietary printing process to create original designs for use in harsh environments. (n)deavor is used primarily by the marine, recreational vehicle and outdoor manufacturing community to develop products that withstand water, wind, heat and cold. All of the Kryptek patterned vinyl will be manufactured at Morbern’s Cornwall, Ontario, facility.
“Kryptek is fast becoming the camo pattern of choice in a multitude of markets,” said John Weaver, Morbern’s executive vice president of sales and marketing, “ and we’re excited about expanding that popularity into the printed vinyl market.”
The Eagle, Idaho-based Kryptek was founded by Butch Whiting and Josh Cleghorn, military veterans who forged a friendship while serving together in Iraq. Kryptek provides combat proven features and designs in ultra-high-performance technical and tactical outdoor adventure apparel.
