Gear color question: 5.11 Sandstone vs TT/Other Coyote Brown

Post by Equuleus » Sat Sep 03, 2011 10:23 am

I am looking at picking up a 5.11 MOAB 10 in Sandstone for a GHB bag and wanted to put a TT Enhanced Admin Pouch on it which comes in Coyote Brown but have not been able to find a comparison of the two colors. I was wondering if anyone had any 5.11 stuff in Sandstone they could take a picture of next to a Tactical Tailor Coyote Brown (or other coyote brown) item so I could get an idea of the color differences. During my google searches I saw someone mention Scotch Guarding the 5.11 bag to make it darker but I wanted to get an idea of the differences before I put out any money.

Ok. That's just what I was looking for. Thanks for going out and doing that. This gives me a good idea of the color differences. Now I don't know why 5.11 would choose to use that sandstone color over coyote.

No problem! The whole reason I joined this site was because of all the random info that could be found. I'm glad to contribute.

I don't mind the Sandstone. It's right between Coyote brown and green. It just doesn't match anything I own.
