Tacticool 10 : Vanity Camo
Posted 14 September 2011 - 10:23 PM
Spurred on by... well it wasn't that smart if you ask me... Tyger talks about vanity camo in paintball.
And it's been live for... a few hours, and 3 down votes. Considering that's more than the last 4 combined, that tells me I hit a nerve.

As it is, the soft gear side of paintball routinely irritates the living hell out of me- mostly for reasons you already hit on. seems like, most of the time, "scenario" product released by any of the bigger name companies is just their speedball gear from two years ago, without the bright colors. Gee, thanks guys. my cup runneth over.
The sutff actually MADE for scenario, that isn't just a rehash of older gear, is... bad. I have a rant on pants, as it is. I have *YET* to find a pair of pants as good as my fusion 7s were, and those I no longer have (much to my disappointment). I'm not going to re-type my rant here, and I'll assume you're not interested, so whatever. the gear that most places make for load carrying is equally bad, if not worse (What happens when you want to run an external hydro carrier on a vest? hope you don't want to run pods back there, either, derp.)
The *really* sad part to it, to me, is that alot of the designer camo, Eclipse and dye included, is just a modified re-hash of omnipat- which was just digitized multicam. (it also had the SO logo worked into it).
actually, I take that back. the *REALLY* sad part about a lot of this is that it shows that the bigger companies- eclipse, Dye, etc. are just trying to ride the 'scenario' thing as long as they can. They're not putting time and effort into designing product, or getting us anything good (Tell me, what's the LAST pair of scenario pants we got that had a mesh liner and could breathe?)
ya know, I'd just about kill for the funds to do startup on a small-scale softgear operation. ain't got a name, yet, but I can tell you a job requirement for a design team job: YOU ACTUALLY PLAY SCENARIO AND WOODS BALL.
We ran to the sounds of the thunder.
We danced among the lightning bolts,
and tore the world asunder.
