    How come I can't find pic or thread of people using black vest or chest rig for any PMC loadout?
    Anyone can help?

    No one uses black because it blends into no environments. Try using khaki or coyote brown.

    Well then all you need is a khaki pair of pants and a black polo.

    Black tactical gear is typically only used by SWAT or other Police/LE units and Hollywood...

    Just remember, when you're unsure of something, like brand names or colors; to ask here first. We're here to help, so people don't make mistakes like this.

    My local police department uses Black chest rigs as well the PA state Police. Because two of my friends fathers are police and have their old Black gear. But I don't think the polices are trying to hid or blend into their environment so there isn't a need for camouflage.

    By and large, though, it's just not used.

    I know I was just saying it is used by law enforcement but it is not even close to being useable for a PMC loadout.

    I never said it was heavily used, just that when it IS used, it's typically done by SWAT/LE and Hollywood,.

    You beat me to it... That was the first thing I noticed besides the fact that the pic looks like it was taken with a potato.

    I noticed the Civil War-era shooting stance first.
