Does wtaps not make bdu's in small or is the resell market just that dry? I've been looking for a little and only ever see medium or large.

On a related note, propper surplus bdu's are big step down in terms of feel/look which I guess I should have expected. Sucks cause I have a pair of "vintage" military olive pants that I like better than both taps and propper so far, but can't find any info on them.

Any Wtaps experts able to help me out with a legit check please?

Looking to sell this Sherpa jacket, that I've had in storage for ages, but just want to make sure it's legit first (bought from a well known reseller)

One of the care tags references "Neighborhood.Co.Ltd" - is that normal?

yep, 100% normal and legit. Neighborhood was Taps' parent brand for a long time, not sure if there's still ownership.

No worries. That's a nice jacket btw, something you could wear into your old age. You consider keeping it?

My Gregory SPEAR system can do all that and more.

But Mystery Ranch is a cool company for sure.

The mystery ranch system is better for your back keeps the heaviest load closer to your body. I had the complete spear system, got rid of the assault and butt pack and when I use the overload panel I don't usually have anything in the main pack so it's fine. Just use it for grocery shopping on my bike or if I plan buying something big in the city. Spear is definitely more durable though gregory usually uses 500d cordura
