I know this thread is 6 months old, but if anyone else is looking. Don't buy regular military style boots for proper personal equipment. They suck and will fuck up your feet. Even the "good ones" fucking suck by design. I would kill to be able to switch to a good 8 inch mountain/hunting boot where you can move fast as fuck boi but you wont immediately break your ankle mis stepping with a heavy ruck.

The lowas posted above look nice. I personally use Crispe and an old pair of solomons similiar in style to these lowas.

I don't know if anyone is still watching this board, but just on the offchance they are, does anyone know anything about retrofitting mics onto headsets like Sordins? The only one I found was from SRS Tactical, and costs 250$, which is a bit much. Pic unrelated, but aesthetic.

They're actually based on Prussian uniforms, which is what the SS uniforms were based on. Simpletons never look past the Nazi use to see the true origin of that design.

they were ballistically superior to the former german helmet. the east germany government also wanted to keep german design but not offend the soviets by using the m40 line of stahlhelms.

Because they cared to design and strengthen some new nuanced features, instead of staying with the two-can buckets the US kept using until they had the PASGT.

And oh, the M56 is a pre-war german design.

holy fuck I didn't even see the CADPAT for a while. I was so focused on the bunny and then the others.

I got myself some surplus woodland camo (which are supposedly even the kind that soldiers wear for possible chemical attack prone areas, but I have my doubts) since I live in the Puget Sound. Seemed closest to what I've noticed bumbling through the woods, and I've never bought camo before so...*gestures widely*

Note also that CADPAT is darker than most of the others, and the gentleman wearing it is standing in front of what appears to be a partially shadowed depression in the ground. If he were standing ten feet to the right or left he'd stand out almost as badly as the guy in the repro tiger stripe. But also remember that any camouflage pattern printed on cloth is going to be a compromise.

Modern reproduction tiger stripe cammies from companies like Rothco seem generally to be printed with the same four colors as M81 Woodland, and have much too much black in them, plus shades of brown and dark olive drab that are way, way too dark. Look at Bat Guano's posts, >>18110 and >>18111, for images of what real actual period tiger stripe cammies actually looked like. The current copies mostly seem to be trying to shrink the original pattern by 50% or more (why? I don't know, but look at catalogs and note that the pictures of the repro gear show a much smaller, finer, denser pattern of skinnier black horizontal stripes than the originals). Between the smaller scale pattern elements and the much darker colors, trying to reproduce that pattern with the four colors of M81 Woodland results in a pattern that "blobs out" into muddy brownish greenish almost-black from more than fifty meters away, as you see in the picture. It could be much worse but there are better patterns out there.

If they were going to redesign the pattern anyway they might as well have put more khaki in it--well, really, the lightest color in some newly printed M81 Woodland, the "tan," is almost exactly the same shade as some companies' "coyote brown" or "flat dark earth," and the brown and green are nearly black. To work with the four colors from Woodland, it needs wider stripes of tan around the black stripes, for more of a disruptive effect. It might work better with the four colors from Green Dominant ERDL, or even from DPM, with its lighter green and khaki providing more contrast and breaking up the outline a bit better.

And yes, the biome in which you will use it is the determining factor. UCP only works well in very specific environments, for example.

I am given to understand, if I may be slightly more serious, that various of the US military's spec-ops units have been for the past decade or longer been using uniforms and web gear made in various civvie deer-hunting patterns for specific circumstances and specific environments. They have used various patterns created by Mossy Oak, Realtree, and

I want flannel lined 5.11 pants. But can't find them in by size.

So I want to find separate flannel pants as a liner for my usual 5.11.
Does something opchan-recomended flannel pants ever exist? Maybe woolrich?

I have a few pairs of fleece-lined pants I got at Walmart a few years back, they seem to have held up well. As for a separate liner I'd recommend the Polartec milsurp bibs:

Mitten State here.

When I am going to be spending an extended period of time outdoors in cold weather, I do layers.

Inner layer: skivvies and t-shirt, of course.

Over that, double layer thermal suit--spandex shirt and pants over the skivvies and shirt, insulated thermals over those.

Depending on how much time I'm going to be spending outdoors, I may wear a pair of sweatpants over that, and over THAT I put on whichever pair of clean cargo pants is up next in the rotation, usually black because I used to work for a company where black cargo pants were mandated by the dress code. A heavy lined flannel shirt tops it off, maybe with a sweater under it. Oh, and an M65 field jacket. And yes, this is bulky enough to require some thought to be put into the sizes as you put them on.

I worry a lot more about good wool socks--not cotton, not synthetic, REAL WOOL--than what kind of pants to buy if I'm going to be out in ankle-deep slush for hours. Insulated real leather gloves are always appropriate in a state where most years it snows from October to April, too.

A balaclava is good if you are not going to have to deal with minimum-wage security types who get to sit in heated guard shacks and whose "training" tells them that having your face covered (outdoors in -15 F. temperatures and high winds) means you're some kind of "turrorist."

Going to the gym in my complex just now, I saw an elderly gentleman walking his dog. He was OCing a pistol in such a fashion that I'm not sure I was seeing it right. I had to get closer.

He had a slim leather holster, barrel sticking out, trigger guard barely covered, obviously meant as a concealed owb holster. The gentleman had it set up as a crossdraw holster.

Are you getting the image? It's a skinny fucking swatch of leather with minimal coverage with THE GRIP FACING OUT FOR ANY WHO WISHES TO SNATCH IT!

>"P-pardon me sir? I'm afraid I must speak."
I point.
>"That is a very poor setup."
>"Well, I like it."
And on he walked.

What crazy bullshit have you seen?

A saw zipties sticking out of a guy's shirt. He used them as makeshift loops for an IWB holster. Wouldn't be a bad idea if he at least cut the ends off and used thick zip ties.
