    Hi guys, does anyone have first hand/hands on experience with different company’s gray kit. I’m looking at a Maxpedition AGR bottle holder to go on a wolf gray Vanquest pack, but don’t want an obvious mismatch in the shades of gray.

    Would love to hear from anyone who has seen them side by side - pictures would be better still!

    Thanks

    You didn't mention which Vanquest pack you have. Their first waves of packs were a different color gray than they have today. It was changed late 2014. I will assume you have something newer than that.

    Ill try to post pics later if I can. However, I am willing to bet you are no worse than me when it come to wanting things perfect.I have the following attached to my IBEX-30 and you have to look really hard to notice any color difference. Unfortunately I cant speak for Maxpedition.

    Vanquest HYDRA Water Bottle Holder - Perfect match. Holds anything.

    Blue Force Gear Ten Speed Pouch - Near perfect match, but it seems they dropping their gray items.

    5.11 Mag Pouch (storm gray) - 5.11 Storm Gray items are a tad off (No one will notice)

    MSM TAC Organizer - Just slightly off. Very close to the Vanquest webbing on their packs.

    Thym XL CellVault - Slightly darker.



    Gear I have tried that is noticeably different,

    BlackHawk - Much Darker
    London Bridge - Much Darker
    VISM (and the other names they go by) - Too light
    Old Vanquest Items - Very green

    I just ordered a Vanquest Katara 16 in Wolf Grey and was hoping my 5.11 Storm Grey accessories that I already have would match up. Thanks for the info.
