    I'm sure there's more, but I'm also sure you can find more.

    Yes, well you can buy real Multicam plate carriers/vests w/o the ballistic plates all day long they just cost a bunch. The approximate the Interceptor style vest issued to our armed forces, but with added functionality.

    HSGI Wasatch: http://www.skdtac.com/index.asp?Page...PROD&ProdID=99
    (Multicam is an option, I own this carrier in Coyote Brown)

    Eagel Ind: http://www.skdtac.com/index.asp?Page...PROD&ProdID=46

    There are also Chest Rigs in MC.

    HSGI Warlord: http://www.skdtac.com/ProductImages/...lord_v2_mc.jpg

    Eagle: http://www.skdtac.com/ProductImages/...rig_mc_big.jpg

    The Wasatch and Weesatch Plate Carriers from HSGI rock because they have integrated magazine pouches adn will accomodate 7.62 size mags. Plate carriers wil lalso easily integrate hydration pouches on their backs.

    Chest Rigs are nice because of theire size and weight, but aren't as modular.

    Now just FYI, I personally have 2 HSGI Plate Carriers. 1 in straight Olive Drab (At th etime I bought this 1 they only had OD, Blk and Light Khaki) and a newer one in Coyote Brown. I went with the solid color armoe so I can use it wih all my different BDU's. (Marpat Green, Marpat Desert, Mulitcam, JGSDF and all the various color flight suits) .. I like the fact that those 2 colors (Actually Coyote Brown can go with almost anything) take care of most loadouts except black.

    BUT to answer your question if there are any Airsoft replica vests in MC??? Not yet, but probably soon. There's a company I already provided a link to, making MC BDU copies already. Just a matter of time before PROUD, Kingarms, Guarder or any other Chinese company makes knock off versions.

    1 Interesting fact about Multicam. It's so in between woodland and desert in color, that in the last Operation Lion Claws, one fo the AEX guys actually had to wear Desert Marpat under his Mutlicam Gear since 1 team was woodland and the other desert colors. See here:

    http://aex.fullmetalimage.com/galler...g2_itemId=4448

    (Yes that's a custom MP7 thigh holster he had made in Multicam)

    Personally I'm a little bummed MC has been copied... Same way I'm kinda bummed that airsoft is now being sold in Walmart and Big5. Just a personal gripe.

    The Crye Precision vest has been on backorder forever it seems. We actually know a guy who scored one though. Go to this site if you are really interested in decent gear:

    http://www.militarymorons.com/

    He's an actual friend of AEX.

    And becuase you guys are my favorite peeps.. I made you a lnk section off my site for Gear Manufacturers:

    http://www.digitalwastelands.com/con...d=35&Itemid=23

    These are all the Real Gear mfg's and the ones you should look at before looking into the knock off versions, if for anything design reference. These are the manufacturers that are usually copied. There are good knockoffs in design and quality adn there are definete knockoffs not worth the money or worthy of an airsoft field

    No, ACU is the acronym for All Terrain Combat Uniform (or some refer to it as Army Combat Uniform) now used by the Army. It gets confusing though because ACU also refers to the Army Green/Blue Digital Camo Pattern. A new acronym for the new Army Digital are ARPATand instead of Olive Drab the acompanying color is refered to as Foliage.

    Multicam is totally different. This may help a little more:


    Multicam Patches, Coyote Brown Chest Harness, ACU/ARPAT Fabric.


    Multicam, ACU/ARPAT, MARPAT Desert, MARPAT Woodland, JGSDF Woodland, MARPAT Urban (Never Issued Not Official)..

    Thank you all for the help you have given me but it looks like I will be making a very early departure fro airsoft. I would love to order all the equipment and try to get some events under my belt but with my work scheduel I wont have any free time untill mid Agust early september. And I live in a small town so there arent many people who do airsoft around here. This makes me sad I wanted to do some airsoft stuff so bad to, kinda makes the 500 I spent on my gun a waste of the money considering I will only be shooting it off in my backyare when I have time. Anyway, thanks for all the information. I will still be visiting the forum BTW but just not the Airsoft section as mutch. That is unless I can make time.
