Looks like a pretty nice pack overall, but boo for "proprietary camo" that happens to look just like ACU... which is horrible enough in its own right. I don't get why companies seem to ignore the options that work with everything- Tan, Black, and OD green.

Yeah, we have the same rubber tabs on some of our OEM gear, pretty nice, but I wouldn't give Tippmann too much credit here. Not sure who came out with the original design, but Tippmann is relatively late.



That said, I really don't see the point of this, other than Tippmann obviously wanting a piece of the pie. The last thing this industry needs is another brand of pretty much the same soft goods.

We find that pretty much everyone wants some form of "digi." I don't get it myself, but that's the demand. Digi, and plain black. No one buys OD or other plain colors.

I experience this a lot, but on a vest since I need a hydration pack and ID/map pockets etc.

I'm still working on a TPX as primary solution, the holster is nice, but then I need extra mag holders and more paint.

Tippmann does have their own camo pattern, they adopted it after they and specops went separate ways. I've seen it in person and in my memory, this pic shows the color best:


Where the colors go from dark green to sickly greenish yellow, and no tan at all.
The pic of this harness doesn't look like that at all. Either the harness doesn't match their other gear or, they color balance of their cameras are way out of whack...

I hate to seem like piling on (because I really love tippman products and own some) but this is day late and dollar short.

NXE (own one when came out) made this years ago.

While I have no doubt it is quality made and probibly reasonably priced.
The only thing going for it is a fuctional and cool cammo pattern.

Something NXE did not have.
