Quality of GCI Paint for Jeep?

I have a 97TJ but was in the process of having a friend that owns a bodyshop paint it (will ask him about this as well) and since we knew the Jeep gets used, we were going with a matte PPG brand paint in the desert sand shade range.

I came across some 'milspec' GCI desert sand paint today and was curious what the quality of the paint is as the gallon is relatively inexpensive. Mind you, I want a good paint job, but am not looking to win any Jeep contests with it; I also don't want it rubbing off or streaking or just looking like shit either.

Anyone have any experience with these? Are they lower grade paint for the military because its cheap and they can just smear some more on, or is it good to go?


No financial interest in the company, heres the link to the paint:

I'm using the rattle can version of the OD on my '43 Willys and like it allot. I can't vouch for the durability but the color and texture is great. I used Krylon for my trailer and for the under coats of the Willys and it's much rougher and seems to not be as tough.

I'd like to add a post script to my previous ststements. I was working with the tub of my Willys in my back yard today. I hosed it down to clean the dust off to prep it for anther coat of paint. The areas that were just the Krylon paint soaked up the water. There were some areas where I had already started painting with the GCI paint and the water beaded up on it.

The GCI paints that I have used in the restoration of my 41MB and my trailer are great and holding up well.
