Texcel just shipped out an order of mine for some 1" webbing and hopefully it doesn't fade like mogen reported. I'd be interested with ordering from MMI, but I'm only hitting 100 yrd minimums for the time being. I'd be interested in doing a group buy in the future for some double sided webbing.

Texcel haven't changed their printing technique, so it will fade at the usual rate.

If the MMI printing is superior and if somebody wants to organize a Group Buy, I may be in for a roll of 1" Tropic Multicam 2-sided.

Does anyone have any pictures of the fading?

I use Texcel webbing, and I put a 5" strip (of every color variation and type I have purchased from them) on a board out in the direct sun and left it out for about a year. I don't notice any fading at all. That might just be for sun fading, I guess. Does it fade with water or washing? My test strips have been subject to rain and snow, but I've only washed the "gear" I made with Texcel webbing once to test for fading and thread durability; all was fine through one wash.

You got to actually use your gear to have it fade.... And it's mainly from abrasion and not UV. Any printed webbing that has done a deployment or similar is pretty much always faded. Don't have any photos on hand, but I'm sure that someone here has some examples around.

Yeah, I figured it must be abrasion more than anything. Thanks for the input as always!

Not the best photo as an example, but there is a photo of some lightly faded webbing: https://s23gearmonkey75.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/img_4344.jpg

Here's some shots of brand new webbing compared to webbing on a TAD Gear Pack. This pack as approx. 3 years of sporadic use as my day bag in the army. If I had deployed overseas with it, it would be much worse.

That's disappointing. Can you do a side by side comparison of just two strips of webbing? Maybe in top of MC Cordura. My MMI rep just said they got green lit for black and arid, and are working on tropic. We're still waiting for samples  ::)

I will do it on Monday for you but i know that i will stay with Texcel even MMI looks it will not fade as fast as Texcel. Firstly MMI is more harder on touch then Texcel, secondly the colors are not so sharp as Texcel. You will see.

The MMI looks close to cordura500d then Texel. It just looks weird on their vest because people have gotten used to seeing texel webbing.

Yeah the MMI webbing looks way more correct in terms of shade than what the Texcel webbing does.
