What should I look for in camo clothing?

The Science of Camouflage Clothing

Camouflage clothing and jackets are designed with patterns that follow the laws of Nature. Good camo jackets and clothing combine the colors of sticks, leaves, shadows, moss, and lichen. Good camo clothing patterns do not look like sticks or shadows. There are no sharp lines, or clearly defined patterns. Instead, camo clothing tries to blend in with the color combinations that make up the landscape.

Camouflage jackets should not have straight lines around the collars, sippers, or hem lines. The camo pattern should break up the human outline. Hunters need several sets of hunting clothing to match the different environments they hunt in. Buy camo clothing, jackets, hats, gloves, packs, straps, and masks with the same pattern.
