Re: new vest, od green or coyote tan?

Why not consider an Omnipat vest? It has a lot of coyote tan in it from the webbing and then the digital version of multicam for trim and or pouches

TomQ tried out the Omnipat vest with his full MC setup and did NOT like it together. He got rid of the Omnipat pretty quick. YMMV, though.

Re: new vest, od green or coyote tan?

I feel your pain. OD is too dark, Tan is too light. What vest are you thinking of getting? Does it come in Multicam?

Re: new vest, od green or coyote tan?

Do you have a link to it? How come you think it's not as good?

The one I have is the Condor Plate Carrier in Multicam. I have to say it's pretty solid. After three trips out, it's still hasn't lost a stitch.

If you let us know your parameters, I'm sure we can help you decide!

Where do you play mostly?

Re: new vest, od green or coyote tan?

You know, I may be wrong, but the link you provided shows vests that are exactly the same as mine (below)!



From your link:


You can tell from the shoulder strap pads. If you can get a Multicam Plate Carrier Vest that cheaply, go for it...but beware, with the Plate Carrier, it's the pouches that'll likely rack up the costs for you.

And from your picture, I don't think you'll have trouble blending in with Multicam. I mean, you're already wearing the pants and it looks great against all that green and brown.

What do you think?

Re: new vest, od green or coyote tan?

You could just go OD and paint it up yourself. When I was in East timor I saw a lot of custom paint jobs on weapons but also the occasional piece of web gear. OI saw a lot more prior to 2000 before we were issued DPM Cordura stuff like this
