I'm looking to replace my 5.11 TacTec because I need to replace it with a multicam/coyote color. I was originally going to grab the new multicam 5.11 TacTec but I realized the Crye JPC (1.0) is a whopping $18 more. So lends me to believe that would probably be a better buy.

However.. with that said and looking at the two offered. Does anyone have any insight as to why I should spend that extra $100+ on the 2.0? Which I think is just having zippers for a back panel? I'm thinking the extra cash would be better spent on MOLLE add-ons for the JPC (1.0)

Thanks for any insight folks.

Just to throw a wrench in your thinking, have you looked at the Velocity Systems (SCARAB) offerings? It’s a little cheaper than the Crye JPC 2.0. I’m a big fan of the SCARAB because the shoulder straps are on small d-rings which allows them to stay off your traps, very comfortable.
