Don't know if anyone has noticed this, but about the weapons keeper that the guy on the third picture down from the top has that is holding his shotgun, is that the "Backtactical Diamond Entry Tool Holder?" I've been looking for one, but am not having luck.
Great guide by the way! I'm trying to put together an impression marine loadout, and this is saves me a headache in the gear/CIRAS department.
One thing that strikes me as odd is why the marines would use dump pouches.
That's MARSOC wearing khaki gear. I suspect that Eagle is very busy with contracts at the moment, or whenever that was issued, and sent out extra SFLCS gear in khaki to the Marines. Coyote brown is still the way to go I'd say.

I have kinda a stupid question but what color would the vests and other accessories be considered? Right now I am trying to replicate the outfits the best I can with a limited budget. So, I am thinking of just getting a tac-vest and drop-leg holster that is the same color that the marines use. I am pretty much going for just the color scheme right now. The vests look pretty tan I just want to know if they are tan, dark earth colored or is is acceptable to buy a vest with the mar-pat camo pattern on it?
You want Coyote Brown for gear, maybe dark earth. The exact color as I said is Coyote brown but different manufacturers call it different things. Tan is typically a lighter color the CB. You do not want to buy MARPAT patterned items as the USMC issues CB in all gear outside of packs and bags. As far as accessory colors go, for newer things you want FDE and older bits you want black. I'd avoid getting a tac vest if I were you and try and get a cheap MBSS, RRV or Land CIRAS. I know Ebaybanned makes all of the above for fairly cheap, although quality suffers.
I'd also hesitate to call something a Marine loadout if that isn't what it is. If you don't get the details down its kinda like calling an MP5 and M4. They're both guns but clearly different.

OK cool. I wouldn't go around saying it is a marine load-out, I just wanted to get the color scheme right so it would be styled after a marine load-out. I'm not a huge Mil-Sim guy I just want to have something that is similar to the marine load-out so I can look good when I'm on the green team for rec games and some scenario games. I kinda figured that a MarPat vest wouldn't work, I just wanted to make sure.
