Another: Guys who think ALL gear HAS to be matched PERFECTLY, and if you have ONE different colored pouch on your vest, ALL your gear is crap and you suck. I am going to use a CB Blackhawk STRIKE LBE, and I have an OD ALICE rig already, which I use over various camos. Does it mean my gear doesn't work if it doesn't match the pattern? No.
You might want to get over the bashing of ACU quickly. People are entitled to their opinions, if you like ACU then rock it out and enjoy yourself, if someone says it sucks then tell them that you appreciate their opinion but you like it all the same. Enough said mate.
As for people that complain about your gear? Well they are just being snobbish and call them out on it. Simply state (to their face) this is what you have and if they don't like it they can go suck an egg. Not everyone can afford the latest and greatest (I know I cannot).
