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:

Lamps are great for anywhere you need to camp up and need to illuminate a large area. My $25 lamp from bass pro has a battery runtime of something insane like 150hrs. I've had it for years and haven't needed to change the batteries once.

IMO that's difficult to keep on your pack. I would vote for running it on the molle on the back, keep it real fucking tight so it doesn't move and make sure your bag aint going to roll on it when you put it down. You'll have a longer pack but it's better for the back than off-setting the weight, and if you turn it on while walking at night (IF Ever, even) it could illuminate the area pretty well.

I wouldn't recommend carrying one in a BOB kit tho

The S-shaped clasps remind me of British equipment before and during WW1.
Some S-shaped clasps were engraved to resemble snakes.

I have a felix "fuck your shit" patch (my other one I gave to my nephew). By now its pretty old but still in good condition. What should I do with it? I Was thinking of putting it in a frame so it looks like something with a story to it.

I have one too. Sometimes wear it in public when going full-geardo. Last time, while waiting in line at a convenience store, some guy spent an awful long time reading it, before saying to me, "pr'ty bold t'be wearin' that patch."

hey /g/earheads, I'm wondering if there are any vests similar to the South African Defense Force 83 - either straight up clones, similarly cut PALS webbing patterns, or other modern backpack-integrated webbing systems - that don't suck. I might just go for an original SADF 83 at this rate but I am wondering if there are any others in that style which are well made and not just Chinese airshit-tier. I'm aware of Karrimor SF's Predator vest and that's about it.

I bought one when they first came in on Kommando Store mostly for the historical novelty, but I've used it hiking and shooting a few times. Something to keep in mind about SA during the period is there was a huge range of equipment which is it has the "one size fits all" feel when you load it with kit.

Also it's 30+ years in the past of LBE development, so you will notice it's more cumbersome than even a cheap MOLLE vest and pouches laid out for you and your kit. I like it for the history, it absolutely will carry your stuff, but also accept it won't perform like any modern system for the collector-grade-prices you'll end up paying.

since my local camping/tacticool store is going out of business, I snagged these Oakley M Frame 3.0 PRIZM thingers. the whole set was marked down to $200 which seems to be a decent deal with the clear, TR22 and TR45 lenses and all the little accessories.

I gather the PRIZM lenses are supposed to help with contrast, but what's the difference between TR22 and TR45?

I just got a pair of Smith Optics Chamber glasses. I say glasses and not sunglasses because I got clear frames. They're supposedly wider-framed than their Director model I had my eye on. Need that for my oversized noggin.

Affordable at only $80 and I believe Smith scored well in a Lucky Gunner test of eye protection years back.

This is an oldie but goodie.
Choose based on your biome #1.
For hunting, whatever you pick make sure you have that blaze orange hi-viz on over it. You do NOT want to be mistaken for a 4-legger.
I chose Marpat myself years ago before multicam came into being. Milsurp is also easy to locate.

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
