5.11's are first rate rigging. I have the vest, pants, shirts. Very durable stuff and has "clean" look, doesn't ID you unless you wear your hair too short...

True, but most adversaries are not trained by La Femme Nikita or Alias. 5.11 is very similar to the hippy clothes one sees SOTB on the bird and berry crowd. The vest tends to stand out a little more than the pants and shirts, but still very doable.

One of the ways to blend in is to set the trend and wait for others to catch up.

If you have a problem with professional adversaries, what you are wearing when they come is generally the least of your problems.

LOL - that's it? What, do you have a "very senior source" counselling you?

Bird and Berry Crowd, NDD! That's what I'm going for. What kind of tobacco do they chew? Do I have to change brands? The 5.11 vest I have is good, when I spill stuff on my shirt, I just zip it up further to cover the stain.

Sir,
There is a remote possibility that he is at least 30 minutes older than me; as well as being a QP.

Love the RR gear. I've been using his stuff while climbing for years.

One question; do any of you have the vest holster from Eagle? I've had one on order from Brad for 4-5 months now, LH, andwould like to know whether or not it's worth the wait/

Thanks,
Maya

I took the holster unit from Eagle's FAG pouch and made a module wrapper for it... I think these holsters run less than 10 bucks
