Technically the mesh back and shoulders of the vest should be brown, and the front panel and pocket loops of the grenade pouches are black. The grenade pouch flaps and bottom pouch edge trim are brown, again.

I suspect they'd be fine with the whole thing black, though, as long as the flaps of the pouches are the proper brown. That's the biggest and most obvious contrast point that I would be looking for. Of course, I'm not a judge.

If I did mine again, I'd dye the vest black and spray the mesh, edge tape and tabs brown.

I'm not a judge either and the standards state

The grenade pocket tabs, grenade pocket edge tape, and the vest’s edge tape are painted brown.


so you've a case for having black mesh but it's not a hard job to get it more authentic by making the mesh brown. I found car/automotive paint worked fine on the brown components.
