I personally ID targets based on goggles, helmets and guns. I find them the easiest to spot. With rigs, I usually find the solid colour ones HARDER to spot once shade gets on them. With multiple colours, it is more likely that you will have a light patch in the shade, that should be dark.

I really just need to figure out what colour to get. Ranger Green seems to work best for Canadian fields AND indoors. But CB also does :/
You've kind of answered your own question over and over (I think in the other thread you did too).

You're one colour works all year around at every field. In general, match your rig colour to the predominate "at-a-glance" colour of your BDUs. For some it'll be green (like woodland/cadpat/etc...) for others it'll be brown (like 3 colour desert, etc..) and for some it'll be either depending on the make/brand of the cloth (i.e. multicam...which in general CB/Khaki usually works best with it).

In general though, with airsoft ranges, guys are more easily spotted because of their movement/proximity or not seen because of lighting/natural concealment.

So...BDU/rig choices are usually based off of what real life guys use and what team/side you want to play on.
