 I would like to add 1 more Multicam Recon.

 

Also I have questions about modifications.  I would like to have a section of elastic material on the straps to allow tighter fit without causing discomfort.  I'd also like to see an option for some level 3A soft armor instead of the quilted padding.  No harm in asking I suppose.

 

Other than that, my coyote Recon has become an absolutely indispensible piece of kit.  I had looked high and low for a setup like this for concealed carry on the trail, and nothing compares to your kit bags.  

 

Get a runners Kit/strap. I think this will give you the tighter fit you are looking for.

Scot or Evan - how about a Tara in Foliage and Stone, to match my Umlindi.

HPG Highlander, Tarahumara, harness  and kit bag (or any combination of these)

Kryptek highlander 

Just moved to a very hot, dry climate and any these would work a lot better than my current foliage items!

One more for the multi-cam recon.  I missed the last run.

Can you say anything about the ripstop material used in this two tone tara

http://www.hillpeoplegear.com/Products/tabid/762/ctl/ProductDetails/mid/1916/ProductID/128/Default.aspx

How's the durability compared to 500d cordura?

How's the durability compared to 500d cordura?

I don't have full specs on either fabric. Remember that the denier is a pretty significant factor (perhaps the most significant factor). So I'm guessing that worst case scenario, the 400d packcloth has 80% of the strength characteristics of the 500d cordura. Based on handling and examining the two, I would expect the packcloth to be MORE resistant to cuts and tears than the cordura, a little bit less abrasion resistant (10%?) than the cordura, and slightly more likely to rip out at the seams than the cordura. I think the 400d far exceeds the durability requirements of something as small as a Tarahumara. If you are planning on completely filling the Tarahumara with lead shot on a regular basis, I would go for a full 500d one. Anything short of that and I don't think you're giving up anything with the 500d cordura / 400d ripstop combo.

 Attache Case in black. 

Fits-in better in an office environment, compared to Ranger or Foliage.

 Kryptek highlander or mandrake kit bag or a mandrake Tara, although people seem to not like mandrake for some reason.

Yeah, I ordered the Kryptek Highlander Tara already, but maybe there will be a matching kit bag some day. 

Finding gear I like in Mandrake is harder.

Just ordered a Tara in kryptek highlander. I would like a kit bag (any) in kryptek highlander also.

 I would go in for a Multicam Tarahumara.  I've got a feeling that if I were rocking one of those on my upcoming trips, it would spark interest in more wanting them, as that the personnel I'll be interfacing with will be wearing MC uniforms and using a good bit of MC kit.
