Hi Guys, I'm sorry for creating another USMC load out topic Theres a few of them on here (some more recent than others) that I used in my research already, but I still have some questions. I'm building an USMC rifleman/SL load out with a teammate (timeframe 2012 to 2014) and I could use some help. I did a ton of reading and googling to find myself the information I need. Currently I have a google docs document a few pages deep. One thing that makes this so complicated for me is that I want to portray a "standard" rifleman/sl. Not a special forces unit. Another thing is that most of the sources I've found are from 2012 or older. This creates some contradictions: Helmet: The guides I've been finding recommend using an LWH replica (PASGT). But, I've also found sources saying the USMC is switching over the Enhanced Combat Helmet from 2012. (an order for 77.000 has been placed in 2013 for example). The ECH looks like a MICH 2000 to me. When looking on marines.mil theres marines with both helmets on photo's. Not just one or two, but several photo's. Plate Carrier/Vest: Guides contradict each other on this one. Most of them say the marines use Modular Tactical Vest. But in news articles and other guides it says marines have switched to the Eagle Industries ISPC from around 2012. They needed the mobility the ISPC offered. Being a slim guy, I prefer the ISPC. I think that will fit my body better. If thats actually being used in my timeframe, that is. If thats the case, I also need to find a replica. I know Flyye and Pantac create one, but a few sources from 2012 state they are poor replica's. Instead the ACM Weekend Warrior is supposed to be a good one but I can't find that in stores anywhere. This morning I also discovered the Emerson SPC. It got compared to a Eagle Industries SPC (not the ISPC) and it matched it quite good. TMC also has a replica but I'm not sure if that comes close to the ISPC. Are there any Marine enthousiasts who can recommend a good clone? And are there some Marine know alls or maybe even active duty marines who can help me out?
