So I've a bunch of green nylon fabrics now, in my quest to find one that is at least a close approximate match to my old school H harness shoulder pads. One is what I used for the 4 cell M1923 style pouch.
Bottom fabric that everything is on; 1000D Olive Green from Ripstop by the Roll.
Clockwise from top right and going from top down in stacks
Older 500D Camo Green 483, new 500D Camo Green, 1000D CG483 Dark Green Seconds, 1000D Olive Drab;
Then 500d BP Green (spruce green really)
Then 420D Ranger Green (looks more like ALICE OD) and finally 500d Ranger Green from Rockywoods

And the 1000D Olive from Ripstop By The Roll with the gear. The London Bridge Trading Company H harness I want to match is on the far left. The other H harness is from Blackhawk, and rest areTactical Tailor gear (yes all those mismatched things are from TT)

And with Bianchi M12 holster; this was what made me use the fabric for the M1923 styled belt panel.

The Camo Greens likely will become backpack fabrics or MOLLE rigs. The 420D Ranger Green is uncoated, and likely will become a chest rig or something like that, or backpack with requirement of waterproof liners.

I like that Spruce colored 500d BP green. Reminds me of the dark green Loden hunting gear the Germans used.

I like the 1000D CG483 Dark Green Seconds. The olive is there, but the hint of forest green mixed in with it looks better than plain olive.

Yeah? I'll see what I could make of it. Probably going to be something basic/simple.

using it with the brown toned Ranger Green (Rockywoods Ranger green) for a custom backpack with Foliage Green (more like gray :rolleyes: ) hardware and frame

Too cool. Are you selling these items or just making them for yourself? Will you be showing any patterns, for someone to reproduce?

Mostly for myself, but I could be persuaded to sell, if the items meet my own standards of quality
Edit. I don't make pattern templates, the majority of stuff is pretty much "box" construction or simple pleated pockets based on what the USGI stuff looks like/how is made

Use some DARK brown stuff, like edging and reinforcements, straps and patches, and it would be traditional hunter type gear.:thumbsup:

I got 3 more greens to compare...
Clockwise from top left corner
500D Eagle Ranger Green
420D ebay Ranger Green
420D Rockywoods Olive-new
200D Rockywoods Army Olive-new
500D Rockywoods Olive-new
1000D Ripstop By The Roll Olive
1000D CG483 seconds ebay
500D and 1000D Camo Green also ebay

The 420D "Ranger Green" from ebay is a close match to the 200D Army Olive Green from Rockywoods, while the 420D Rockywoods Olive is a very close match to the older Olive green of the ALICE pack and pouches. Edit. The 1000D Ripstop by the roll Olive is the most olive drab of the bunch and matches the Bianchi holster.

The 500D Rockywoods Cordura Olive is pretty close to the Tactical Tailor padded MOLLE belt, and a little brighter than the London Bridge Trading H harness.
