The pattern is painted / printed on the surface and does not wear out in abrasive places, such as Hanger-pouch.
I expected it to be made out of laser-cut cordura, but in reality this patch looks pretty much as shown on the picture. Looks a bit like a home-made stuff printed on a jet printer. The cross isn't centered well. The colors are off as well. Overall, the patch serves its purpose, but the taste of disappointment is clear for me.
