Re: Help with clothing

Clothing for stealth is so damn confusing! I still have no clue what to buy. Normal BDU's are too loud, which eliminates them from my options. I then turned to tight-fitting clothes and went with HeatGear from UnderArmour. They are tight-fitting and come in gray, but then I ran into the issue of how...

I recently purchased a cheap grey BDU which arrived today. Upon arrival, I put it on and was mostly satisfied. However, it still made a fair bit of noise.
