If I know I am going to hop in the truck and head straight to the field with no stops.. I may wear my BDU.. but never never never any gear. I simply can not think of any reason to wear LBV, or Tactical equipment , or holsters in public... Other than in a effort to "freak people out" or draw attention to one's self. It's a bad decision.. an anyone who is in the practice of doing it.. needs to re-think it.
5.11 is about 90% of my regular daywear now, and I plan on getting in a few of their jackets with detachable backs (so I can go get some company logos silk-screened on them). Their pro polo shirts are super-comfy, and the mic tab, well, I only use a radio while at work, but it completely eliminates the all-forgotten question of "where the heck do I clip the lapel mic?" The BDU pants are extremely comfy, minus the kneepads (their utility is questionable, they shred easily, and aren't very easy to insert and remove), however, the divided slots combined with the BBS velcro inside pretty much eliminates the need for a belt to have miscellaneous mis-matched pouches. I spent a fair bunch of pennies, but most definitely don't regret it, and highly recommend it to anyone looking for comfort and functionality.
