    Best Camo Pattern and Where to Buy...

    I have two questions:

    1. What's the "best" camo pattern (marpat, multicam, ACU, etc.)?

    2. Where can a full range of vests, pouches, holsters, uniforms, etc. with this pattern be purchased? For instance, even Blackhawk seems to have little in the way of marpat.

    Thanks.

    This is the best Urban Camo EVAR!

    That said,

    It really depends on your locale. I live near the edge of the Cascade Mtn. range so urban camo really does work well enough during winter, but during warmer months regular old woodland camo was fine.

    That is hilarious. All he needs is a rack of yellow lights on top and he could get away with anything.

    Well, generic woodland isn't a bad choice, then... ;)

    Seriously, there is so much good surplus stuff out there in the old BDU woodland pattern, you should be able to find anything you need. Also, since it is no longer standard, places are having "clearance sales" on many things in that pattern.

    Another option is Olive Drab - you can find many things in OD, it's a functional camo color in many environments, and it's easy to "modify" with other colors, burlap, and so on.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    +1 with OD

    Any good earth tones and keeping your movement to a minimal will render you pratically invisible to most people

    There has to be at least one....

    Multicam is the best. Anything will work fine....but I do think Multicam is the best all around.

    I guess then the question should be more along the lines of:

    Is Multicam or Marpat the better all around woodland camo pattern?

    I vote for the marpat...In the woods around here (southeast) it seems to be the best.

    Camoflauge

    Work boots or generic-brand sneakers, worn jeans, and a dull, loosely-fitted, solid-color (pocket optional) T-shirt. Ball cap optional, windbreaker or light denim jacket if it's cool out. Grey Man disappears even on an empty street.
    I live in the city, so anything camo-patterned vies with Neon signage for conspicuity (is that a word?).

    I realise you're probably not talking about what to wear for your next trip to Target, but I just wanted to remind everyone to think of the obvious - "Camoflage" is more than fabric patterns; it's an overall pattern of appearance.

    I now return you to your previous channel, and apologise for the momentary hi-jacking.

    Stay safe,

    Chuck Brick.

    I vote MultiCam. Nice pattern for woods concealment. My 12yr old who observed me from a distance said it blends it well.
