Ok well I was thinking and I thought that every one has a barrel sleeve/condom. Well, raise your hand if you have a specops digi on or omnipat? Exactly. I think it would be awesome if spec ops could make camo barrel sleeves. So I did a search and it seems all the posts on hear about barrel sleeves are for custom ones or other such things... so any one?

One other function for barrel sleeves is to serve as a way for your opponents to judge who is already out from a distance. Since most people don't keep their marker above their head for the entire walk to the stagging area/re instertion zone.

Yeah he is right, cant tell you how many times someone gets lit up when he is walking down the trail to the dead man's hut becuse he cant hold his 8 pound gun for an hour. Instead of cammo-ing the berrel sleeve put in in a poket that closes (Zipper/velcro) or you might eather lose it, or get shot during an ambush becuse how many bushes have orange Specops logos on them.... Besides my house. lol I wish I had Specop bushes and trees that would be awsome!!!! lol jk, But seriously I want em!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Who would want to hide(make it hard to see with the camo) something that tells people you are out. It will only get you lit up and mad and probably ruin your day. I have bright colored sleeves so people can see I am clearly out and not get unloaded on for no reason.

Thats why you buy a bright barrel condom :happy: You can get them here (the bright orange is what im talking about).
I just ordered some stuff and apparently got the last SO digi barrel condom since they're not selling them anymore :ghillie:

If you want the real camo barrel sleeve and hopper cover, do not buy it from SpecOPs. They stole the idea for this from www.barrelsleeve.com.

This website can customize it to fit you marker.

I think there is some confusion in here about the product in question. Some of you are confusing barrel "sleeves" for barrel bags/condoms. A sleeve covers the length of the barrel as decoration or camouflage. A barrel bag is used as a BBD and to show that you have been eliminated. Personally I don't see a reason to camo-up either of these. I use bright colored bags so I don't get shot after elimination or mistaken for playing on. As far as sleeves go, I had some made for my team that had our logo on it, but, why would you pay for a camo one when camo-wrap can be purchased at surplus stores and Wal-marts across the country for a dollar?

Just doesn't make sense to me.

Sorry, spec ops is the only company that offers producs in omnipat and its not going to change anytime soon, its not about spec ops stealing anything, its about them offering a pattern that no one else has.

LOL! I made homemade camouflage barrel sleeves 15 years ago...not like it was some major idea to steal.
