SOG Vibes

Going for a SOG-ish vibe. Honestly not the happiest with this one. I’ll have to redo it. Fill out the pouches. Got a BAR belt with M1956 suspenders and a “CIDG” rucksack. SOG nearly always wore plain sterile OD fatigues often spray painted with black to break it up. They didn’t start using camo till late in the war. Tiger stripe or ERDL would have not allowed plausible deniability if caught or killed in Laos and Cambodia.
