Flip flops, long shorts, no shirt and a ball cap.

Woodland blends the best of what I've seen in the woods. All of those fancy ones fade strangely and stand out. For deer hunting purposes, blue jeans and just about any shirt works well.

I agree. all the new digicams just dont blend well here. Woodland would be best. Regular OD would work as well.

That's what I was going to say. Make sure they're cut off jean shorts too.

I have multicam and it seems to blend pretty well around me. The problem with Fl is there are a ton of different habitats and colors that you will encounter. Everything from dark green forests, to brown grasslands. I don't think anything will be a perfect match to every habitat in Fl. Around me it's mostly scrub forests and fields, so the color of multicam fit the environment the best, but you may need something totally different for your area.

I find that German Flecktarn is pretty darn good.

I'ved used it all across the state.

Have you thought about Canadian CADPAT?

Avoid ACU.

Outside of a rock covered terrain or urban setting it sucks.

As you can see in the above picture CADPAT is much more green than the darker Coyote Brown MARPAT. It looks like good swamp camo to me and when I think of Florida I think of the Everglades.

Multicam
Digital Woodland/Woodland MARPAT
Digital Desert/Desert MARPAT
CADPAT

All of those work well. Flecktarn is also certainly a viable option.

There are three patterns that work in the tropics:

Palmettoflage
Predator Spring http://www.predatorcamo.com/camo_patterns.html
Or, in a pinch, you can cut a template of a fern and spray them onto Woodland camo with the brightest green fabric paint you can find. Insect repellant will make it run.

Predator spring is the best but they don't do ripstop which kinda sucks. The pattern will fool Geese.

What the hell were they thinking? Woodland camo works best, hands down, everyplace except the desert or the artic... that's where that dayglo digicrap shines.

No it doesn't, the only place it works is below the European forest canopy where it was designed to work. Tropical growth is several shades lighter and much brighter.

I was thinking cadpat or marpat since there is probably alot of green.
