In 2007 the Navy began the incorporation of their own camouflage pattern named, NWU Type I. The NWU Type I was phased into service beginning in January 2009 and didn’t see full usage until the 2010s.
The camouflage patterns are similar to the MARPAT Marine Corps Combat Utility Uniform worn by U.S. Marines.
The colors of the NWU Type I, according to the U.S. Navy, were intended to reflect the navy’s heritage and connection to seaborne operations, while hiding wear and stains, something unavoidable with the utilities and working khakis used previously.
The colors were chosen to match the most commonly used paint colors aboard the ship, extending the lifetime of the uniform on long deployments where uniforms often come into contact with freshly painted surfaces.
Type I is predominantly blue with some gray for the majority of sailors. It was originally developed for shipboard use, but proved unsuitable for shipboard environments and is due to be discontinued in 2019.
The Ocean Warrior is our interpretation of the pattern using similar shades of blues with the individual patterns being more intentional in shape and location.
