The intermediate colour between black and white, grey is so neutral that is often referred to as the colour "without colour". It is spread across the natural world and present in many components of the landscape but also in the wildlife, providing animals with universal camouflage and allowing them to blend with their surroundings. The camouflage properties of grey were soon recognised and since then utilised in many types of military apparel and tactical equipment. Where black creates more contrast and separation from the background, grey is optimised to break up the wearer's outline offering low-visibility and therefore protection. This makes it perfect for law enforcement and special forces operations conducted in the urban, suburban, metropolitan and industrial environments. Outdoor and tactical clothing, combat gear and quality camping equipment in over fifty shades of grey are available at Military 1st, the UK based online store. We offer a broad collection of combat uniforms, cargo trousers and casual shirts, waterproof ponchos and warm jackets, along with specialised MOLLE vests and professional webbing.
