I heard the new Army ACU webgear was in a new color called "Foliage"; now I hear of this "Ranger Green"...what color will the majority of gear be in? Got any pics?

it is a GREY GREEN color, much more functional IMO than foliage green.

look up FELDGRAU on google, and you'll see good examples

I googled "FELDGRAU" and got stuff about a death-metal rock group...

I googled "ranger green" and got stuff about the Green Power Ranger...

FeldGrau is German for Field Gray, its a grayish/green color used in WWII by the Germans, VERY similar to the color in ACU.

I've been looking but haven't seen any good examples. Of the two ranger/foliage, which is darker?

I don't see green in any of the UCP stuff I've seen.

The Foliage Green looks like Sage Green to me, i.e. just like a nomex flight suit.

Yes and no. Feldgrau was a standard color, but there where different variations depending on the manufacture of the paint, and the time period. In uniforms color depended on the wool blend. You can see wild variations in color from one unifrom to the next.

I wish I had a camera. Brassburn's assessment of the color is correct.

I just got a pair of pouches from John Willis in Foliage Green. They're very grey-looking at first, but do have some green to them.

That's the best analogy I've heard on the subject. Very well put.

I am obsessive about the things that interest me, that is for sure...
