Does this count as Green Camo?

Hello all,

I'm fairly new to airsoft (been going to indoor games since last Fall) and I'm trying to put together my first proper BDU for this summer's outdoor/Milsim season.

My question is, will this be considered a Green Camo outfit for skirmishes and/or milsim games - ones with green & tan teams for example? Or will it be considered too ambiguous? If it is likely to cause too much confusion, I'll just invest in a Woodland set instead. I personally think the WD vest helps, but please let me know your points of view.

And just as an FYI, this is an actual camo pattern from Bangladesh - I had the uniform bought and brought over from there - Bangladesh's
paramilitary forces have used it in the past. I'll try to come up with the proper patches and insignia soon.

Thanks a lot and I hope to see many of you in the field this year!

The color pallet looks very similar to US M81 (Woodland), so yes its green.

Yes, I believe it was patterned after US M81. Thanks.

Well, my primary concern like I mentioned is whether it will be okay to show up to a milsim in this BDU after having signed up for a "Green" team, or whether it is only likely to cause confusion among my fellow players.

Final say always goes to the host but I don't see why anyone would call that tan.

I think, if you have to question weather if it's looks green or not, you shouldn't be wearing it, because many time, I have to question myself whether I think the camo I'm seeing is ether green or tan so I hesitate pulling the trigger. It should be like, OK that's green I can move on.

I think it's green but if you think their could be confusion, use green accessories.

Last year I had a player with a similar camo + tan/brown hat and black vest, lol. Talk about confusion.

It is a green based camo but it does have alot of a tan feel to it.
For the most part it will look green but in the right lighting it couod appear tan to some. Get someone with a yellow lense in their goggles and they wont know what the heck it is lol.
That said it is a green cammo if you pair it with woodland rig or od or rg you should be fine just confirm with the host for milsims if its green or not skirmishes youll be fine

Can't be worse than multicam!
Looks green to me

As for people that are unclear about a camo and hesitate pulling the trigger: that's what everyone should do, "hesitate", confirm allied or opposing force, then act accordingly... Just imagine you're firing live ammunition and you're responsible of the life/death of the guy in your sights...

That'd be counted green, IMO

Just glance at it....snap decision Green or Brown/Tan. To me...appears more green than tan/brown.

The colour of your rig can swing things...but usually stuff like woodland still appear green even if your chest rig is tan. If your chest rig is green then it just reinforces it.

Also...at many games it's only the tops that count...pants colour/pattern don't. Some guys get all bent out of shape...others don't since you really never only see someone's legs (without seeing/infering more about them).

IMO...hats should match your top. Putting a 3 colour boonie with a Woodland jacket with a tan chest rig is just going to get you shot up. Confuse guys with guns at your own risk...LOL

Thanks for the input guys. It seems that the consensus is that it is green camo, but I will check with any game hosts for the final okay regarding teams etc. Thanks again.
