What do you guys think of this, the multifunctional thing is pretty dang cool. at 15$ I think it would be worth it.

Also comment on the specific camo pattern.

Seems similar to this item, Spec-Ops Recon Wrap (http://www.specopsbrand.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductID=3), that a number of players have used over the years.

Neat, would you rather pay the 5 extra bucks for that one?

(I'm very limited in terms of funds)

SpecOps Brand is a Texas-based company, so I support them whenever possible.

I do love Texas.

But I think I'd like to save 5 dollars.

I have one of these, and they are real cool.

The pattern on that Zub one is really lame.

Wow....those look exactly like Buffs....weird.

I own a spec-ops wrap, it is nice. I think it would be a better investment for you then the Zub. As well for a Balaclava I think it kinds of sucks, I have only seen purpose made balaclava's to fit correctly, you can use the recon wrap but it feels weird.

You can get those Zub ones in DCU, Woodland, Tan and OD. Personally though I would opt for the Spec Ops one. I would definately spend the additional 5 dollars.

Oh alrighty then. Would you suggest OD or Black or something else?

03-19-2008, 10:31 AM
Depends on what uniform you have, or are planning to build. I would suggest woodland to start off with. So OD recon wrap works so you can match. Or you can get Coyote Brown which I think looks pretty nice and does the job.

What he said. OD or Cyotoe Brown will go best with any camo patterns.

Black I would suggest to stay away from. In fact look at Mir's current avatar, as you can see the OD carrier he has blends quite nicely with his ACU. The black goggles and NV mount just stick out like a sore thumb. At first glance thats exactly what my eyes zero in on.

My 2 cents. If your not going to wear traditional camoflauge patterns then solid earth tones in greens and browns always are the next best alternatives out in the woods.
