I was going through ebay.com recently and was looking at tiger stripe camo stuff. I was suprised to find that it wasn't just uniforms that were made but also gear.

I'm just stating that just because some say this pattern is nolonger popular, don't buy into it. If you look hard enough, you can find stuff like this.

any opinions?

I happen to love Tigerstripe camo. I have a set of my own fatigues, and I painted my SP-8 tigerstripe...

As long as people like it still, there will always be a market for it. I just wish I can get a MOLLE vest on that pattern.

A simple google search "Buy Tiger Stripe" will locate all kinds of items. As for a vest.... I don't think anyone has ever made a tiger stripe molle vest.

Rap4 has(had?) a tiger stripe paintball vest.

You could probably contact MOATI and get a quote to have a custom vest made.

I've seen the RAP 4 version and I know a custom made one is out of the question for me due to money issues. I feel that if enough players demand a vest in that particular patter then the'll have to make it. alot of older and even newer player like the pattern and want a vest to match it because in my opinion, the OD and Tan vests and rigs kinda throw off the concealment of the camo weither it's the vietnam tiget stripe or the desert tiger stripe.

Tigerstripe is sexy. But it doesn't do much in paintball.

i used tiger stripe for a good 2-3 years her ein florida, and i loved it. the problem i had was that it fades after washing eventually.

so i went with urban camo, and the lighter colors make it alot cooler than the darker styles of camo. but i wish i could find urban tiger stripe... even digital turban tiger stripe. that would be teh sexay. much less GEAR in urban digital tiger stripe.

From my experience, It works very well in florida in some places because of it's subtropical feel and some parts of it can almost pass for a vietnam jungle.

i guess it depends on the shades of greens and browns that are in it. like i said before, my tigerstripes work real well in New England. Its a little darker than the Vietnam tigerstripe....

Tigerstripe BDUs have been the "Official Pants of Team Lockdown" for years now. We love 'em...a good general camo pattern that works almost everywhere...
