    So, me and my friends were wanting a easier way to distinguish each other at the field. We also, are looking at starting a "team" for an upcoming tournament. We are in East NC , so we were thinking a brown shemagh, and Olive pants. We didn't want camoflague, because everyone wears any camo you could think of. (That's readily available). Suggestions?

    Buy the same camo, the same gear, all the same color. Really looks good, and keeps you somewhat distinguished.

    Same gear, as in the same vest, same belt rig, same holsters. Multicam is my suggestion.

    Why are they made fun of, because they are using an effective camo? Seriously, that makes no sense. People at your field are probably just jealous.

    Could you possibly upload pictures of your AO?

    No, the problem is that no one has heard of them. And its a Wasatch replica, which means its very hard to balance and make it sit correctly. You will have immense difficulty getting it to work. I suggest a Flyye EPC from ShooterCBGear.com

    Please go fact-check whether or not something exists and then come back and make your reply, just as a favor to those who may not be as knowledeable at deciphering nonsense.

    ACU stands for Army Combat Uniform. It is normally associated with the UCP but it also has been used with OCP.

    And the Marines wear MARPAT which looks nothing like ACU.

    There's a good reason for that, it's not a vary effective pattern. I would not suggest wearing ACU or UCP.

    You don't all need to have the same gear, and in fact, I would advise against it for two reasons. First, different players have different needs based on their own unique play style and role. I wouldn't want to be saddled with gear that didn't work well for me just because my teammates liked the vest. Secondly, everybody on your team should have the freedom to spend their money on what they want. If you start dictating what gear they can and can't buy, you're all going to end up pissed off at each other.

    What you should do, however, is match gear color. If everybody is sporting khaki over M81, for instance, you'll have a very unified look without drastically limiting what the guys on your team can use.

    We Michiganders found out at Op: Northern Light that M81 pants with OD combat shirts and Khaki or CB gear look pretty slick. It'll be more unique than straight M81 and still work well in a woodland environment.
