Hello,

 

I am looking to pick up a few pair of pants, and came across Kitanica's stuff, looks good, maybe a bit overly tactical..

Does anyone have any experience with this company and how it compares to Crye?

I've been thinking about getting a pair of Kitanica's for a while (not the 10 pocket ones, though). I'm not sure about the price but it seems relatively comparable to other manufacturers like TAD, and I dig that they are U.S.-made. Would definitely like to hear if anyone here has experience with them.

At 199, 185, and 99 I just don't know about personal use and the purchase. If they were not issued I just don't know if I would purchase them? I would love some constructive criticism on the subject though. A good pair of Crye with the pads at that cost to me personally is more justifiable. Or how about a pair of tru-spec multicam. 

 

 

 

Crye G3 Top:

Pros:
Made in the USA
High collar (keeps sun/slings/hot brass off the neck)
Integrated elbow pads (great for shooting prone)

Cons:
Torso fit(could be wrong on this, but as I understand it, the torso fits more like a compression shirt than a t-shirt)
Not really a "gray man" shirt



Crye G3 Pants:

Pros:
Made in the USA
Stretch panels above the knees, in the crotch, & small of the back for maximum mobility

Cons:
Velcro closure on the gaiter 
Again, not very "gray man"
