If you don't like coyote brown, you can't go wrong with OD.
+1 on Tactical Tailor. Multiple deployments, no issues. They make great products!Go with tactical tailor, the gear is pretty much bomb proof and in a great variety of colors. they have a specific mag pouches for the m14 mags also the universal pouches work really well for two mags and also fit 3 ar mags. The pouches with the shock cord to secure the top of the mag also stack really well on top of each.
Tac tailor is the only kit I use, my kit has also survived multiple deployments, I'm sure that my gear is going to last many years more. Definitely worth the investment in my opinion.
That's why here in Wyoming...I woukd definitely go with the color that blends in best with your surroundings. If it is mostly brown in Kansas, I think you made a good choice with coyote. That's why I go OD - I live in the "Evergreen State!"
Of course, living so near to Portland, perhaps I would blend in better if I went with a rainbow pattern.......
