Fatigues.....

We all know color depends on your area but what are your favorite types of brands?

Does it even matter?

I'm only familiar with issued gear but getting some as a civilian there's billions of options. Anyone fuck with Amazon cheapies?

    Solid colors or hunting patterns. You're not in a military.

    Anything but 5.11, their "thinnest moat lightweight material" obviously is prone to ripping. I couldn't get them to last over a month of astonishingly light use.

        Do you have money to spare? If not then no, it's not worth it, considering you're only going to wear them in your house and on here.

        A big part of why Crye et. al. stuff is so expensive is the US manufacture. You could theoretically get stuff that's equal in quality to Crye not made in the US and therefore cheaper, but most of the time that's just not how it works. Companies that are making good shit might as well make it Berry compliant. Not sure about pants but LBT has their LBX line. Same stuff but made in South America. Worth checking.

        No you're literally being a retard. So you wear camo when SHTF, and you do get spotted and caught. Do you want to look like a hunter or someone up to no good? Someone that's part of a militia group they're unaware of? Someone who's part of a military? You don't want to look like any of those things, so don't wear any of the shit they wear. You don't show force unless you have force to back it up. Lone guy out there looking like a soldier or sniper is going to get his ass shot at or captured, tortured, and executed.

            Ukraine is over. The time to get in was 4 months ago when they stood up the NATO trained units that are now mopping up whats left of the seperatists/Russians. No one going to Ukraine right now will see combat unless you're dumb enough to go Rusfor. You can't even volunteer as a combat troop anymore unless you're sf.

    Propper stuff is pretty decent quality, but they also only do old cuts like BDU.
    Rothco is on the cheaper side feel wise but perfectly serviceable for LARPwear. I have a set of their vintage Vietnamese tiger stripe and I unironically love them. They are super lightweight cotton that can breathe okay in 90 degree 60% humidity weather
    Other than those two I just buy surp

    Propper makes great BDUs. I’ve worn them every day for over 10 years. Solid colors at work and camos when I’m off work. Very comfy, breathable, resilient, and only like $30 for a pair of great pants. Once the camo starts to fade after about 5 years of being consistently worn in the sun every day and being washed every week, I just cut the legs off and use them as comfy shorts. Also my wife loves the button fly for easy access.

      Why do people hate 5.11?

      • 4 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        Tacticool people are scared of wearing certain clothes because they will be outed as being "larpers" or something like that, 5.11 just happens to be the most popular brand that is sold in many retail outlets. Also the "grey man" meme of wearing clothes that are tactical but either gray or brown and thinking you don't stand out like a sore thumb, but realistically no one cares or they assume you're an off duty cop.
        Personally, I try not to let other people influence my choice of clothes, but many people here are very self conscious.
        5.11 is way overpriced for what it is: chink shit with mediocre material.
        My favorites: Arktis and Vertx.
        I've worn Arktis trousers and smock through plenty of brambles and backpacking, held up perfectly.
        Vertx is pretty comfy and functional (I just have their original tactical pants).

          Spend $89.95 (plus tax) on Chinese crap only to have them rip apart in a week if you do anything other than pose in a mirror with them. I've seriously had them develop wear holes just from walking around at a security job.

          Ah okay. I've been looking for some thinner cargo pants I could wear year round (being in PA we get extremes in both heat and cold) and 5.11 looked like they might have something which is why I asked, but I'm NOT paying $60+ for pants. I'll check out Arktis and Vertx, thanks anons!

      It works great when you're perfectly still against the intended background, but sucks shit the second you move even slightly or aren't in front of quite the right sort of foliage—so it's just like every other camouflage, but moreso

      Most hunting camo is very specific to a certain backdrop so in a SHTF scenario, as long as you are in that specific backdropped area, then it isn't too bad. Most military camo patterns are made to be generalists, not specialists. A couple of our sniper teams like to rock realtree under their ghillies so they have decent camo while they re-veg their jackets. I think breaking up your outline is as important, if not more so, than the specific pattern you have (depending of course on the color palette)

        Realistically, wearing a drab nature color like khaki or OD instead of red or blue gets you 80% of the way there; wearing a disruptive pattern is another 15%, and what particular pattern you wear—given that it's not totally inappropriate, like M81 innadesert—is so far into the asymptotic diminishing returns zone that specific camo patterns are more useful for IFF than for concealment, regardless of how good they theoretically are.
