    Sorry if I missed this, thanks...

    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..)

    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
    http://www.emdomusa.com/whybetter-CM.html
    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
    http://www.snipershide.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=1273126
    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

    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...
