    Hi everyone. I joined about a year ago, usually I don't have a lot to say so I don't post much. I'm looking to buy a maxpedition tc-6 and a beefy organizer, my question is should I get them from optics planet or lapolicegear? The reviews are all over the place, if anyone has any experience with these companies please chime in or of there is another option to get both please let me know. Thank you.

    I've ordered a couple of things from OpticsPlantet before. I can't recall what it was, but thats a good thing. I can remember what I ordered from LAPG and why I won't order from them again. :uhhuh:

    YMMV...lots of folks have gotten what they ordered, I'm sure.

    I have ordered from both outfits with no problems at all. I usually use LA Police Gear cause Optics Planet is in my state so I have to pay sales tax.

    I ordered from OP a few times and was pleased with the service. I had an issue with a pair of gloves and they were quick to take care of it.

    I've ordered from both. More from LAPG. Never had an issue with either. Now Maxped on the other hand, I have issues with them. Go check out Vanquest. They will probably have what ya need and are a better company. Ya can also buy their stuff through the Forum Store!

    What issues with maxpedition if you don't mind me asking. Is the product not very good, I don't want to buy something that's not quality. I did take a look at vanquest, I like their organizers but I didn't see any belt carry option similar to the tc-6.

    I prefer Optics Planet and if you don't know about DVOR look into it,it is also from Optics Planet and sometimes worth getting the emails from them.

    I also have been finding a lot of things,lights mainly from BH Photo and so far have never minded the prices or the service,first class every time!

    Just like the Forum Store if he has what you need.

    I have ordered and returned to opticsplanet (not their fault) in all cases I thought their CS was exemplary.

    Long story short, The Member whose thread I linked to ^^ had a bad experience. After his experience the owner of MaxPerdition attempted to sue EDCForums owner and demand the immeadeant turn over of the Forum for his own gain.

    He still has a shill account or two here, and Jon has proved it on the open Forum.

    So I'll say this....

    Many people have and are perfectly happy with MaxPerdition products. YMMV.

    Personally, I'm glad I read all of that before I bought any.:smug:

    Bottom line: Live your life.:)

    I've ordered from both. They have both been less than great at times. Other times, they are fine. Overall, Optic Planet is marginally better.

    And, don't take this as goapel, but I think I remember someone saying they were both owned but the same person, so it may not matter which one you choose if the corporate culture is the same at both places.

    As for this...
    It has indeed been a full seven months waiting for a boonie hat that was alleged to be on a two week backorder.

    just make sure you contact optics planet first to confirm if an item is actually in stock. i'm not sure if they have updated their site, but i remember ordering 'in stock' items, only to find out later that they were backordered. An alternative, and my fav, is B&H photo video; they have probably the best online customer service for a store it's type. hope this helps
