Mass Gray vs. Emerson Foliage Green

Recommended Posts

Gotta admit it: I fell in love with this type of gear when I saw the Vans advertisement posters:

Unfortunately, a) I am building 3 different loadouts at the moment and can't afford a 4th one and B) I hate paying for real gear, especially if it's something as Gucci as this.

 

So Im trying to do this on the cheap side. And while I have not yet found a cheap alternative for the suit, judging from pictures it seems to me like Emerson's Foliage Green gear is pretty similar to MAS.

Anyone who has a piece of both could compare them?

They can be either very close or VERY different.

 

Saw some real MASS grey nylon in person and I think it's more like a washed out yellow.

Anything else carrying a greyish green name can be anything between orange and cyan in hue.

 

 

The worst part? ALL colors mentioned above are PITA to show in pictures, and different batches from same brand/manufacturer can differ a lot.

 

 

 

 

BTW, the shoes are like some plum color, which is a darker low saturation version of magenta, ouch.

Reviewing different pictures of Emerson FG gear, I'm afraid you are right: either each picture brings out the colours differently or there are substantial differences between batches.

Don't for get your pc's and monitor colour representation.

However. If you go for that grey-brown RAL 7013, you should always get the rightcolour since it's not a name, it's actually the camo's colourcode

How the fizzle could I forget?

I'm selling wolf grey items. Would you be interested at all?

 

Ps. Out of time to edit post. Sry for doubles

Try also Helikon's Alpha Green, Pentagon's Grindle Green and OPS's Ranger Green.

 

I can provide pictures of all three if needed.

I dare say the Ranger Green and Brown Grey ( RAL7016 ) have my preference in blending in and being general purpose.

... I think I just decided I needed a Brown Grey BDU / Ranger Green gear loadout...

Darnit, Chas...
