Camouflage

If I get an A.C.U. Vest against Woodland Camo will the contrast be enough to make me stick out like a soar-thumb?

The ACU vest will make you stick out like a sore thumb lol

Do whatever you want in terms of Camo

If you really want to hide, get camo that works for your enviroment

You said ACU, so yes. You'd look like an old school US Army soldier standing around reading a newspaper.

olive drab on woodland good?

I need a more brown camo, hence the wanting woodland or marpat, but a surplus store near me sells quality camo, cheap(er than usual) they have ACU, Woodland, skyblue, urban, city, and cadpat, no marpat, so I'll take the woodland, but I can't find woodland or marpat vests around, only ACU or drab

???
thoughts?

You can find marpat, you just have to look for it. Marpat is also called "digital Woodland' because of some legal thing.
I have found vests before. Like this one

Not too expensive

Get a vest in khaki, it'll go with anything you wear it with, and better chance of it looking good. There is some pretty sick (in a bad way, not a cool way) OD nylon out there, so I'd stay away from that unless you luck out.

Where in Van are you? I mean there's Gorilla Surplus on Broadway. There's also Daves Surplus (New West).

So you shouldn't have a problem finding anything you want.... Let me guess you went to 3 Vets or something right? They have some decent stuff but most of it's for camping, getting your girlfriend a pink camo bikini, work related gear (CSA boots) and such.

Also ACU is more like "I-See-You". Olive goes well with woodland as does black. Coyote Brown or Khaki might do the trick however.

Camouflage on Granville, descent prices.

gorilla tends to overprice and there vests are pretty good! but same deal, only OD in colour

and dstactical.com does not give me much so I plan on going in person sooner or later

Get a Habs jersey. It worked for me. Surrendered two guys while wearing it.

not a habs fan, rather wear a Sinster hoodie, more my forte

maybe some nice 4oz gloves, and mouth-guard, heck, while I'm at it, I might as well put peeps in an arm-bar instead of plinking them



... and than I'll get banned :banghead:


nah, on second thought, I'll just keep looking for marpat/woodland

Oh god stay far away from that place.

I visited that place when I was in BC a month ago... Nothing but low-end fake crap sold at retarded prices.

That's more of a "I'm cool because I wear camo" store than it is a surplus/"tacitcal" store.
