Quite a few interesting points of view here that are worthy of note... since I don't have alot of time to be on here as much as I would like to, I
have to take a short pause to keep the direction going for the sake of the threads continuity.

I see alot of mention of Camo vs. gray... but what do you all think about an all black outfit as opposed to a full on camo/gray look? Its kind of a
non tactical look, except for the boots, which are 60% covered by the pants.
Yes, and so far the debate has been either total camo / grey standpoint.. and now the lines are being blurred somewhat, as in life nothing is always
black or white.
The issue of black attire is very relevant, considering the day and age in which we live.. SWAT and other tactical elements utilize it effectively in
the field and most LEO uniforms are in darker shades.
From my own understanding, black is a big no-no in military loadouts now due to it's rendering in nightvision and that is why most of the branches
excluded it from all battle dress uniforms camo. Apparently it stands out like shiny chrome it the later gen NVG's and is highly reflective.
But from a civilian standpoint, a stormtrooper dressed in all black swat style has a pretty ominous presence indeed, which is interesting
Who would you rather run into in a dark alley raid?
A mix of camo and black tactical is a notion worthy of some discussion, albeit a little outside the box. Mix that up with a little grey.... hmmm
I'm out for now, so keep it civil and logical,
I will check back in soon.
