I'm thinking that hoarding camo really lacks a lot of practicality, and would probably rather have a solid "gray man" setup in a SHTF scenario.

I like the idea of using darker tops and lighter bottoms for a general guiding principle of camouflage if needed, but in this case, using muted earth/neutral tones. I live in Seattle, where there's both plenty of concrete as well as green PNW woods, moss, and tall grass in and out of the city. Due to the climate, having something that is water-proof/resistant is pretty important, as well as something I can layer up with and move comfortably in. Something that doesn't scream "tactical", isn't BDU baggy, but serves the functions as such discreetly and effectively as possible.

I'm liking the idea of getting a green Condor Aegis hardshell jacket along with some khaki Condor Cipher pants and just throw on some boots. What do you all think?
>> No. 18116 ID: 13f512
To be honest, the idea of buying tacticool things to be "gray man" is a fundamental misstep.

To blend in, you need to be wearing what everyone else is wearing.
>> No. 18118 ID: a8dbe2

This.

Just get workwear, man. Dickies, Carthartt, whatever. It's rugged, comfy, and common.

The idea of tactical apparel meant to look like casual apparel boggles my mind. I mean, it'd make since if it was an affordable price because it's not much more material than that $10 button up and definitely didn't cost that much in man hours to sew that extra inner pocket.

I say just buy cheap rugged shit and modify it yourself. After I get a sewing machine here eventually, I'll show you guys what I intend to do to turn a Chicom rig into a damn good shotgun rig.

I'm starting to think I can make a killing making tacticool gear. And hippie sandals, because why not diversify?

It depends. You say you live in Seattle... in which case your best "gray man" camouflage would probably be hipster-approved clothing you could pick up at a second-hand clothing shop for a few bucks. Alternatively, "Tactical Homeless Hipster" like your picture might actually be appropriate because Seattle (only half-way joking here).

If you really want something that lets you move around, buy some blue-collar construction/foreman-esque clothes, get a hardhat and a reflective vest. Anyone bothers you, just use that image of someone of a position in authority as social engineering and say you have to be somewhere and keep moving. Add a radio and clipboard to the mix and if you aren't drawing attention to yourself, most people aren't going to stop you (outside of police and authorities, but if you're going AWAY from where to they're GOING, that's less of a problem - again, so long as you aren't Fergusion-ing out and carrying a brand new boxed flat screen or something, it shouldn't be a problem 9 times out of 10).

And remember to keep your guns and powder dry.
Container, Individual, Aerial delivery, Rifle, 1st pattern, (Rigger Modified)
These are the cases also known as the "Modified 1st pattern Griswold bag". Details include authentic snap and grommet closure, cloth loops and snap, interior construction, snap hook and webbing hanger, and military nomenclature ink stamp. Our cases are made slightly longer to fully and comfortably fit the disassembled M1 rifle inside without stretching the canvas. It includes a release cord to close the case. We used custom woven white harness webbing that includes the black ticking with a milspec harness snap hook. The canvas used is the durable and authentic cotton duck in the Od#3 shade. In this rigger-made version we take our standard model container and modify it with the addition of three lift-the-dot tabs to close the container instead of using the lacing closure. This modification was most commonly made by the airborne units fighting in the Southern France campaign. http://www.wwiiimpressions.com/riggershop.htm

yes i do and i love it, not much more to say though its nice quality, but it should be for the price, it is super convenient that it folds up nice and small in its own attached pouch.

if you like ponchos, i would definitely say get this one its the best i have ever owned.

Since AR500 can't unfuck its shipping/order department, I have 350+ to spend on armor unless they miraculously put a carrier and plates on my doorstep by monday, I need alternatives. I sent them an email saying I either want my money back now, or they can send me the plates I order and another of their cheapest level 3 carrier packages.

Currently running a grey ghost carrier, but it's been without armor since fucking beginning of september. Give me good and reliable places to get some shit.

I ended up selling my banshee on ebay and buying a Ferro Concepts Slickster from The Great White North. A little less overt but has a little less working space than something like a banshee, but scale-able from plates only under a cover shirt to a light magazine/essentials loadout to pairing with a chest rig for the full package.

For something with a little more space to work with from the start, I'd look at Beez Combat Systems or Mayflower for a good budget option.

Since I know there are some ham radio operators/people familiar with radio tech on here, what's the deal with the 30-87 mhz frequencies used by SINCGARS? From reading ham radio stuff I understand that the low-VHF frequencies like 6m and 10m have extremely variable performance, which I'd imagine would not be desirable for military operations, so why use them for a tactical radio instead of another more stable frequency range?

>6m and 10m have extremely variable performance

You got that right. But for long distance.

They have very sporadic long distance performance. On summer days, the E-layer of the ionosphere well, ionizes, and then skips are possible. I think the farthest I got on 6m was Enid, Oklahoma, from basically Casa Grande, AZ.

Same goes for 10m. Farthest was North Dakota on E-layer.

However, despite 10m being HF, they both act like regular VHF. Good for local ground-wave stuff, and plenty stable. I could reliably hear the 'local' 10m repeater, about 50 miles away.

I have a feeling the use of these bands dates back to WWII, when the upper end of the VHF spectrum wasn't all that practical for good cheap day-to-day comms.

Anyone know where I can find some Plate Carrier sewing patterns or plans? I've been thinking about making a night desert plate carrier in my spare time for a fun little side project.

This pic was the only thing I could dig up, just looking for something so I'm not taking a complete shot in the dark.
