This is a report of the results of test in the Fleet Marine Force of two different nylon-cotton blend utility uniforms, one in a sateen weave fabric and the other in a herringbone twill weave fabric, using the standard cotton-sateen utility uniform as the control item, to determine their suitability for Marine Corps use. The nylon-cotton blend uniform made in a 100 151 cotton warp, 100 200-34-680 three ply nylon filling in a sateen weave fabric is considered to be the most suitable of the three test uniforms for Marine use. The standard cottonsateen uniform is considered unsuitable for Marine Corps use. Author
