    Found an Eagle plate carrier that I've been looking for, for about $30 less than normal. Only thing is, it's Ranger Green rather than OD (all my mag carriers and other MOLLE shit is OD.

    Should I jump?

    almost looks like if I were to just get my OD shit really dirty and use it more, it would match up pretty close to Ranger Green. looked at my colors of OD, and they're not as bright as that Eagle ref.

    OD green from one company to the next will vary.

    It's been that way forever, even now companies cant get the same match as the next.

    yeah. A rifle carbine case I just looked at that I have is fairly bright, but the mag pouches have more of a gray to them. This plate carrier is just too good to pass up, and I am starting to think that OD might not be that good up here.

    Ranger green is the color of your shit after 4 bowls of split pea soup from Obee's in Fayettville. Trust me

    You'll be able to tell the difference, but it's close enough.

    Unless you are required to have matching pouches and underwear, just get what's cheap.

    My rig is an airsofter's nightmare. :o OD, khaki, CB, RG, MC

    On top of illustrating what a cheap bastard I am, it also makes the point of batch/manufacturer color variances.

    The Eagle RRV is OD, but it looks closer to the CSM RG than the BHI OD.
