I had been wanting to test drive the Lightfighter RAID design, but they are thin on the ground these days! When I saw them recently on clearance for $49.50 :shocked:, I just had to pick one up. The only thing is, it's ACU. The only time I see ACU (other than the news) is on our troops in the airport. I support our troops and our mission, but I am not military. Most of my tactical nylon, especially the more public pieces (EDC packs) is solid colors, mostly coyote. I used the RAID during a trip to Portland for the BLADE-West show this weekend. I like the contoured shoulder straps, the two internal mesh pockets, the panel loading, the lined design, the size/shape/proportion, and the overall quality of construction. All teh compression straps are a hassle for panel access but are easily managed. RAIDs are pretty scarce on the boards these days, and at $45 the ACU doesn't have much trade value (say, for another color RAID). However, what can I do to mitigate or distract from the ACU for EDC use? Does anyone have pics of ACU with other color pouches attached? Dye jobs? Disarming morale patches? Overall civvie treatments? Pink paracord woven through the PALS? ;D My wife, a snowboarder, thought there might be a snowboard-chic angle to work. My main concern is not to look too much like a .mil wannabe. Thanks for any tips.
