Gen III Extreme Cold Weather Clothing System (ECWCS)

Extreme Cold & Wet Weather Fabrics

Staying warm and dry is critical for mission success, especially if it means you can outlast the enemy.  Milliken fabrics can help you do that, by constructing lightweight fabrics and then incorporating our technologies to enhance performance.

 

Gen III System

​Truly the next generation in cold weather apparel for military personnel, the Army’s Generation III Extreme Cold Weather Clothing System (ECWCS) offers the most advanced levels of layering protection available. Milliken fabrics are used in the following layers:

Level 1 Silkweight Baselayer is constructed from a moisture wicking, quick drying, and lightweight fabric.

Level 4 Windshirt fabric features lightweight wind & water protection with a soft hand. 

Level 6 Extreme Wet Weather Parka and Trouser is made from a water proof breathable, lightweight and packable shell with 330d nylon reinforcements
 
Level 7 Extreme Cold Weather Parka and Trouser is constructed from a water resistant, lightweight shell with 330d nylon reinforcements
 

APECS Parka and Trouser

 The All Purpose Environmental Clothing System is constructed from a water proof breathable shell that has been engineered to be lighter and quieter than previous systems, with 330d nylon reinforcements.

3SSS and ExCWS

The USMC 3 Season Sleep System and the Extreme Cold Weather Sleep System both utilize lightweight nylon fabrics with built-in NIR.  The outer shell is water resistant, while the inner liner is specially treated with Milliken's own VisaEndurance® antimicrobial technology.
