    You have the right idea going with FLYYE over condor or Oetech. Whatever you do, don't buy a condor. I regret my waste of $100 every time I see it.

    So you think it is good to keep sticking on flyye? What about my vest, is it ok?

    That's a great vest. FLYYE makes solid gear and the RRV is a great design. I have a Pantac RRV and it's a regular in my rotation. It's a great light weight design with a lot of flexibility to either bulk up with the aftermarket rear panel or open up more ventilation with the fold-down bib. It has 16 columns of webbing across the chest, which is ample room for all but the bulkiest of kits. I love my RRV and I'd recommend it to you in a heart beat.

    That said, don't get black. It looks bad and it stands out in almost every environment. Coyote Brown or khaki are great choices to blend in outdoors and match whatever camo you're wearing.

    I second this. Although I'm currently selling my Pantac RRV, I regret having to. It is one of the nicest rigs I've run, as the amount that you can customize it and how lightweight it is make it very easy to like.

    CQB is really dark, and wearing tan colour is really easy to be spotted at.

    Regardless, black will ALWAYS be silhouetted against your background more than other colours. Your statement is backed up by neither fact nor experience, clearly. I'm guessing that your CQB facility is the normal type, where it has wood barriers and such. In that case, a tan colour would work much better.

    Learn from my mistakes, black is terrible. We even played a mid night op, and I moved through the shadows, and theyvsaw my movement in the shadows. If your CQB field is like most, there's wood barriers. In which case, tan is best.

    The fact of the matter is that black is silhouetted against the background any time there is a light source, as it will always be darker than the background. Because of that, the human eye will be naturally attracted to the one perceivable object, moving or not.

    That's more to add to your comment, Champo. Not to argue with you.

    The places where I play CQB are mainly dark, and it is much better wearing black. And also as I said, it is problem of teaming.

    It doesn't matter if it's dark or not, as long as there is a light source then black is the worst colour available. And if it's pitch black then colour does not make any difference whatsoever.

    Oh, and you might want to find a team not full of people wearing the most useless colour available. ;) I like to shoot at the people in black first.

    < is a minority. ;P

    So THEREFORE it is clearly impossible for me to be racist! :rolleyes:

    I would suggest either khaki or a coyote colour. They're both great and go with just about any colour/pattern uniform.

    If you're worried about being too light, get Ranger Green. It'll be light enough not to stand out in the dark and dark enough that you won't feel weird or whatever.

    What Grin is saying is 100% true. Think about it this way, as the light dims, it dims the same everywhere. Whatever color you wore that was neutral in the light will be neutral when it gets darker. Black starts out darker than the environment under normal lights, so when the light in the building goes down, the light on the black goes down as well, keeping it darker than the environment. That continues to be the case until there is no light at all, at which point it doesn't matter.

    You want a neutral color to work with in dark lighting because it will always be neutral no matter what the lighting conditions are.
