    Except black based camos (why would someone use them anyways).

    Thanx for letting me know, been wondering about that aspect. Multicam would do way better in an area like mine so I'll stick to that. I found some uniforms made by Tru-Spec that can fit me, best place to go is the manufacturer site itself to get a good deal on them.

    Night time games most likely.

    Black actually kind of sucks at night games. You would be better with grey clothing, or even the UCP camo. Black really only works when the rest of the environment is also black (such as an area full of charred earth) and without light. All it would take for you to get noticed is a pair of adjusted eyes to the light level and the light from the moon and stars. If people have flashlights, then it will not matter, and you will be better off with whatever is usually the camo for the environment.

    Edit: I have no idea why I just made a paragraph sized post about camos, even though I have almost no first hand experience.

    Black is the best, because black looks cool, and looking cool is all you need to be super operator.

    Great thread, but i'm still not much closer to a decision. I'm going multicam clothing. I can't decide between a CB or OD plate carrier. Right now I'm just running woodland camo with a FLC. I will still be running woodland clothing sometimes, depending. I'm in the pacific northwest, so no real desert. I want to do mil-sim west eventually, NATO side.
    Whats the current issue army PC/armor color with their multicam uniforms?

    I know this is a very old thread and I hope I'm not stepping on any toes, but I actually just did something like this for reddit and have a few combo's that I don't see in here that may be of interest to some people...

    OD/coyote

    OD/Multicam

    OD/black

    Wolf Gray/coyote (yes i know the center of the shirt look a bit purple due to lighting but you get the idea)
    [​IMG]
    Wolf Gray/Multicam
    [​IMG]
    Wolf Gray/black
    [​IMG]
    CCE/Multicam (CCE is basically a French version of m81 Woodland...the pattern and colors are very similar, so it would look about the same with american m81)
    [​IMG]
    CCE/Black (i know OP has m81 and black but the link seems to be broken, so here).

    I should have done this before i got rid of my RG Slickster, but l'll have something new in RG soon enough, and probably some MCBlk too (carrier and top...already have pants) so i will add more updates as I get more stuff if people are interested.

    Since you seem to be the only one posting on this semi dead thread, what green based camo goes with grey gear? An even better question is what color if none match.

    Unfortunately i don't have any gray gear... but I would think pretty much any green based camo would go with it. Gray gear probably wouldn't be much different in looks than black

    Thanks! I imagine it would be about the same as black.

    Where did you get the m90 set from? That's always been one of the camos on my list to buy some day. Now I actually have the money for it

    https://armygross.se/en/clothing/swedish-army-m90-clothing/ (direct link for all the M90 stuff).
    They're based in Sweden but they ship quick internationally and have good products. I think I got my stuff within 10 days of ordering.
