I wanted to post this real fast to pass on the idea. Ive used it quite a few times w/o issues. Its proved very ergonomical and functions without burden or liability.

You're Not Zebra & Not Soldiers...

Zebra are absolutely camouflage. They all look exactly alike to blend in with one another so a predator cannot pick out one in the heard. YOU ARE NOT A FUKING ZEBRA..
