Now before you get super excited, some of the products described retail at over $700, but there are cheaper alternatives as well. Most would possibly be out of the casual paintball/airsoft price range, but aside from their marketed LE/Military customers I'm sure that there would be some hunters willing to pay that price for a quality suit.
13 days till the A-TACS FG release! Who's excited?
