What colour is this?
« on: March 26, 2017, 03:46:47 AM »






As title suggests, I cannot track this colour! I order samples of the Velcro and their either too bright or too dark, I've seen this colour on different zips as well, and searching for ... green, olive, light olive doesn't through anything up!

Any help would be appreciated, I think this is nicer match than for MC than Coyote Tan and the brown palettes.

Ain't the first as that's what I currently use and from that supplier. Not FG as it's really grey. Might see if I can get RG, not many vendors in the UK for RG velcro.

Looking the YKK color sample chart, looks like 884, 235 or 561

Hard to tell exactly since phones(assuming this is what you snapped these pictures on?) don't reproduce color/exposure all that well.

Can you get your hands on a physical tape color chart to compare them directly?

It's probably Tan 499 if it's sewn to MultiCam. That is the "correct" solid colour, although I much prefer Coyote Brown with all of the MultiCam gear.

That's C2R 's handiwork (high end UK brand, who nearly exclusively deal with SF and CTSFO police).

I'd say Tan 499 if they have to comply with specifications from an administration.

It's a C2R zip on backpack and M4 Pouch, it has Hypalon / Cordura lid. The Velcro and zip colour they use is what I want to use as it's dull, and imo a better match for MC than coyote tan or brown.

Correct. The backpack is almost an exact copy of the Paraclete backpack.

If anyone is interested I got a sample from YKK.

The colour that matches to 99% is YKK D566.
