    I need help regarding what would match a green ATACS camo
    I'm thinking of a regular green plate carrier but not sure if it'll match well.
    I'm a pretty small guy about 5'3" and about 100 pounds if that helps give me a tip of what I should get

    Do you already have the ATACS? Because if you are not completely attached to it or already possess it, I would recommend a different camo choice entirely. ATACS isn't very effective unless everything in the woods is damp. Usually multicam is a much better choice and matches plenty of vests.

    You could just get an A-TACS FG plate carrier.

    1. Green gear is extremely ineffective.
    2. A-TACS looks like barf. If you haven't already bought it, look at multicam. That being said, I have no idea what would look good with A-TACS because it's hard to make A-TACS look good.

    Would multicam work well with a green plate carrier?

    No. Green gear = bad idea. Look into CB or khaki.

    Or, you can be a Uber1337SEALDEVGRU guy by mixing MultiCam and AOR 1.

    Haha, just kidding.

    Check with either Coyote Brown or Khaki(like what Rondeb has said), or if you have some extra cash, get it on MultiCam.

    Green gear isn't ineffective. Let us get that one down. It works perfectly fine in very green environments like Ireland or a jungle. Therefor, ATACS in its inherently green color base would be effective in said regions.

    If you play in and only in green regions, ATACS is fine. You may like it, but most find it ugly.

    If you play in a variety of regions a more transitional camouflage like MultiCam is a much better, not to mention cheaper, option. It blends very well in many areas. Since it is now standard issue to the Army, it is also cheap get MultiCam gear.

    I recommend you pick up some surplus MultiCam BDUs off of eBay. Then multiple gear color options are available to you such as khaki, coyote brown, other camouflages , and obviously MultiCam.

    Rondeb,

    Green gear isn't completely ineffective. OD is less effective in many of the wooded environments in the US than Coyote Brown is. That doesn't mean that green gear is completely ineffective.

    If they're Polish, yeah. This shouldn't affect US or UK based PMCs.
