I'm thinking of ordering a Custom Vest in ACU....I was wondering how close is the ACU Pattern to, say Tru Spec, or Propper.
It looks a little off, in some of the photos.

It may just be the lighting in the photos, or your computer. I have an undercover shirt that is ACU from SpecOps and mine is nearly identical to the real stuff!

Mo uses legit ACU material. The differences could be a number of factors: computer monitor & lighting as Woods mentioned but also the material itself. Cordura & cotton take the pattern/dyes differently, so a pair of ripstop pants may look a little different than a cordura pouch. Also, material from different production runs can have slight variances. So a ripstop top may be a little off from a pair of ripstop pants. They just aren't absolutely 100% perfectly matched unless you had every item of your gear made from the same material that came off the same bolt of fabric.

In the end, it's all the same pattern & colors, once you roll around in the woods it won't make a difference :(. So go ahead & order what you need, SO will take care of you to if you ever have problem w/ the vest.

I myself can assure you that the ACU is actually a great material! As my personal preference, I prefer it! It's most defiantly worth the money. You will not be disappointed.

The cordura that we use on the vests is Mil-Spec ACU.

Yeah, lighting conducive to photography and camo don't mix well. Some of SpecOps' Mauraders and Fusion jerseys look like stonewashed jeans.

You wouldn't believe how hard it is to photo OmniPat and do it justice!

Try ging to an army navy store, or a military surplus store. They carry pretty cool things that usually work for paintball as well. Also, people say that Army Combat Uniform camo isn't good.... Well I was playing woods ball and laying in some green vegetation and a tango stepped right on me.
