Eagle's Khaki looks like very light OD green. Are my eyes messed up? Will Khaki function well in woodland areas?

Would anyone have pics of Khaki gear in woodland terrain? Thanks

'Woodland' isn't a good desciprtion because an Eastern US hardwood forest will often be different than a western US pine forest and so on, but most 'woodland' areas have a lot of brown in them. There's usually a lot of green along breaks where there is more underbrush, but there is usually a lot of brown/tan at ground level when you're actually under the tree cover. And when there's a bunch of underbrush you're supposed to stay in/behind it, not out in front of it where everybody can see you.

tan matches more things than green.

Generally, lighter is better than darker but in this case I would say a coyote type brown would be more suitable than a tan or khaki...if it has to be a solid color. Multi-cam looks really good but it is expensive right now. The best camo I have for wooded (central) Alabama is a nice faded set of woodlands.

I couldn't see khaki working as well as OD or coyote in east Texas pine forest. Everything in those woods are brown, green, or gray.

To me the woodlands especially fadded woodlands stick out like a sore thumb. YMMV

I've found that OD works much better then woodland. Then I figured out that tan works just as well if not better. Think about hunting camo. How much green is on it? Not near as much as your browns and tans.
