Was just wondering if TT used YKK zippers on all there gear?
Sorry if I missed this, thanks...
Yep! YKK's super smooth Coil zippers of various sizes..
ETA: What are you looking at buying from them?
Tactical Tailor.....sorry I just seen I did that
Thinking about getting the Urban Operator Pack....
That bag probably uses either #9 or #10 YKK Coil zippers on it which are fantastic!
I have one of those in Coytoe and one in RG, the main zipper is slightly larger than the one for the front pocket, but all of them are YKK (I am not sure what size they are specifically.) They come from TT with paracord wraps on the pulls.
If you look closely at the very tip of zippers, it'll show you what size that it is. It'll say something like "8 C", "9 C", or "10 C" etc. The number will be above the letter..
(forgive the dust..)
Shoot, you learn something new every day. Thanks Schuey!
The man is a [FONT="]connoisseur[/FONT] of fine zippers! :lolhammer:
What can I say? I love me some YKK zips....
How does RG look like? Is the color like foliage green or is it Olive drab Green? if possible, some pictures please
Ranger green is below the OD:
This photo surely helps. You have all the colors there.
On the left, next to foliage:
Thanks, u r awesome
It seems to be the color of the base fabric of Maxpedition Foliage green products (not the webbings and straps color), am I rite?
Never had any Maxped gear but I doubt it. Perhaps they have a foliage green shade that differs a little. Usually foliage green is quite different from ranger green.
I found this
It seems Ranger Green is between OD Green and Foliage Green. Foliage Green is like grey to me (with very little green) lol. But I can say Ranger Green is pretty close to Foliage Green.
Crap with the classification...
Hmm, I think I have decoded what foliage green means lol
There is a color scale a few posts after the OP.
Foliage green = usually grey webbing + ranger green back drop. For example, on the Maxped Condor II, Foliage is for the webbing and most of the straps, green is ranger green which is the base fabric for the pack. lol what the crap
my foliage green maxpedition stuff is definitely foliage, not ranger green. Ranger is a dark olive drab, foliage is a grey/blue
I'll post some ranger green later
Maybe your eyes are good and you can distinguish from ranger green and foliage green. For me, well, I can tell jack-**** between the 2 LOL...
My perception is that the 2 color are very very much similar to each other. Anyway, I'm gonna open a new thread regarding Ranger green vs Foliage Green. We simply hi-jacked this thread already. LOL
My sincere apologies to OP...

Wow! Thanks for the YKK info! Now I have to dig through my pile of packs and see what I have got!
