Interested in purchasing a vest and a few pouches, but am wondering if BDS is upholding SOE's level of quality.

Thanks in advance

Well that sucks, how is Paraclete's level of quality?

SOE stuff was great (i thought at least), i wish they didnt turn it over to BDS, but i have no idea about the reasons. I dont suppose the SOE crew is going to create another company, are they?

Nevermind, got the info on what happened to SOE. Planning on waiting for a new company from the original owner of SOE.

I ordered two "custom" pouches from BDS after the changeover, and wasn't disappointed at all. Fit and finish seemed right up to what my '02 vintage SOE thigh holster had. The 2-quart canteen cover with the 40mm loops is pretty much unique to them and I'm a grenadier.

My only gripe is they have a very light, almost yellowish desert tan rather than the "coyote" that everyone else uses. Makes for a meaningless but annoying mismatch on my SOTech Hellcat next to the Tac Tailor stuff.

If you want SOE quality gear, go to the survival forum and check in on the SOE thread in there. John Willis, who IS SOE is working with us to do a custom rig for the survival forum. You can get in contact with John that way and find out whats up.
