    At the moment I'm choosing combat shirt in multicam. Options: Crye G3\AC + new from Drifire, Patagonia, 5.11, Tru Spec Xtreme, Massif, maybe some others. Any comparison reviews on them?

    Well, Crye is Crye. Expensive, cool, expensive, did I mention expensive? They are very nice, but in my opinion unless you are doing an impression, are unnecessary for most Airsofters. I mean, if you have money to blow, go for it.
    Massif makes very nice shirts. I own one myself. Guess how much I paid for it? $15. New, with tags. These things are all over ebay from $5 to $30 or so for a brand new shirt. I would recommend one of these.
    These two are both great brands, even though one can be found cheaper than the other, they are both RS, and will serve you well.

    I own a 5.11 multicam combat shirt and the multicam coloration is perfect, it's comfortable and breathable. I'd highly recommend getting it.

    I have a Massif and love it. They are to be had dirt cheap on eBay which is awesome. Aside from being great hot weather shirts, I have found them to layer very well. For a fall game I was in, we played through the night in 30 degree temperatures. I simply wore a long sleeve shirt under the Massif, kept me warm and dry. For the price, they really cannot be beat.

    Just one tip, never ever machine wash them. The one I got was machined washed by the seller, now I'm having issues with fraying. Not that big of a deal, as a replacement is cheap. Hand washing is your friend.
