  • The Naga Gen 2 is looser fit as the first was next to skin fit and most folks wanted to chuck it on over a baggy(ish) T-Shirt. It also has a media port in the little pocket. 

    The material is Polartec Powerstretch, and the darker patches are Powerstretch Hardface, which has nylon reinforcement.

    BTW also, those elastic loops on the riggers belt/leg loop pouch are there to slip over the pouch and keep it as small and slick as possible when stowed.

    I’ve used the Arc’teryx pads over the pants for classes/training (smashed my knees last winter, still pretty sensitive..) They go on/off pretty fast.
