U.S. Air Force OCP Uniforms require Name Tapes and Insignia to have SPICE BROWNThread. With the exception of Lt. Colonel and 1LT. Their rank is produced with Black thread.
Our Name tapes and insignia are proudly Made in U.S.A. to military standards. Air Force insignia is now being produced on the NEW 3 Color OCP.
This is the NEW 3 Color OCP Name Tape to be worn on the U.S. Air Force OCP Uniform, Clothing and Gear. Most name tapes available in either Hook Fastener Backing or SEW-ON Versions. Authentic - Military Spec.
In the year 2020, the Air Force approved the use of 3 Color OCP for USAF Name Tapes, Branch Tapes and Rank. This version is easier to read while not compromising the overall function of the camouflage pattern or uniform. Significant feedback indicated that the previous 7 color OCP name tapes and rank were hard to read, leading to this change.
At this time, both versions are still allowed for the uniform. For more information on 3-Color OCP check out this article on AirForceTimesOrder
