An Important Question

I usually wear 5.11 pants at work (because I can’t wear jeans–stupid dress code).

I like the iPhone pocket in 5.11s.

So, does that make me a Mall Ninja, or an Apple Fanboi.

Which is worse?

    if there is a gun and a knife with in reach of you, i would go with a Mall Ninja, or a screwdriver, but that requires lube!

    Have you put rails and / or MOLLE on the iPhone yet? Painted it camo or coyote tan?

    If not, you’re probably ok.

    It isn’t necessarily an “either/or” case; definitely could be “both/and”

    I dunno, you tell me.

    Our Class C uniform includes the ‘TDU Green’ 5.11 pants the boss buys us. Guess we’re all mall ninjas. I can live with that because those pants come with a whole bunch of other things the boss lets us use. You wouldn’t wear yours if they were ugly or uncomfortable.

    You have nothing to worry about – your sense of humor is intact. You host this site and let a bunch of us have fun. Wear what you want. I don’t know you but you don’t appear to be the kind of guy who needs approval from strangers on the internet – if you were, then yes, you are a mall ninja.

    Mall ninja is worse. Recognizing that good gear is good gear is not necessarily a bad thing, but being a wannabe most definitely is and that’s what a mall ninja is: a wannabe.

    Yeah, but everybody knows that Apple Fanbois need to keep their pictures of Steve Jobs laminated… πŸ˜‰

    I think mall ninja is worse.

    Then again I have my iPhone in one pocket and a streamlight in the other….. but no 5.11 tactical pants.

    …aaand Ancient Woodsman wins the internets. πŸ™‚

    Well given that you don’t wear turtlenecks, and I think 5.11 actually would kill people working in the iStore, that may rule you out.

    Also you’re taller than you are wide….but also aren’t so thin you can hide behind a street sign, or covered with ugly tattoos, you might not be a mall ninja either.

    Gotta agree with Tam/AW πŸ™‚

    I disagree with the parameters of the question.

    Being limited to only two choices in disparaging terms is clearly the work of a Douchebag. 8^)

    No tac pants, but I do wear a photographer vest most of the time; I hate carrying stuff in my pants pockets.
