Blue jeans and a t-shirt - urban camo.

I'm the advantage camo poster child. Shotgun, muzzleloader, sleeping bag, slings, clothes, boots, buck and beretta knives, etc. and on and on.

It is German, but I forget what it is called. No, it is not the poka-dot pattern.

Extremely long distance! If you're far enough away, the bad guys will find a closer target to shoot at.

The vietnam "tiger Stripe" is PROBABLY my fav....but a guille suit is HARD to beat in the woods.

I have no need for primitive conventional camo since i use a metaphysic cloaking device [whacko]

Swiss Alpenflage, or German Flecktarn, or that cool purple Bosnian stuff

Flecktarn!! The German SS WWII camo was pretty cool too.
Link Posted: 1/31/2002 5:57:18 PM EDT
When only the best will do....CADPAT!! I just wish us mere mortals could buy some.. Other than that I am torn between Flecktarn and Rhodesian.

Yeah, German armies alway seem ready and eager to leap on things that belong to someone else![:D] Just ask Poland! I like the 'Desert Storm' version of [i][b]Flecktarn[/b][/i]: [img]http://www.battlefront.com/resources/poc/_poc_images/full/westgerman3.jpg[/img] or [img]http://www.battlefront.com/resources/poc/_poc_images/full/westgerman2.jpg[/img] Eric The(Cammo'd)Hun[>]:)]

I think most of the commercial patterns are way too busy without enough overall breakup, though there are some good ones. I like Forest Floor a lot. And the "Outfitter" pattern that cabelas has looks like a real nice late season pattern - essentially woodland with no green. (A splash might be nice though.) Renamed - you're onto something. I want a tartan made of Olive Drab, Brown, Black, and Green. Then make me a bunch of flannel shirts out of that.

I really like the 2 color British Desert Camo pattern, then the 3 color Desert Tiger Stripe..... Other than that, just regular Woodland Camo. Since that is 98% of what I have anyway!! DK [:D]

Flectarn is cool, also Nighttime desert [:)]
Link Posted: 1/31/2002 7:26:40 PM EDT
Depending on terrain/season: - OD green BDUs with black or gray spray paint in large, irregular splotches - Grey BDUs with either black or OD green spray paint in large, irregular splotches - Tan BDUs with brown or OD green spray pain in large, irregular splotches Obviously ghillie suits and snow coveralls are also good under the right circumstances.

That "active" camo the "Predator" used.

A moonless rainy night, or the new USMC cammies we will be issued, even the name-tapes are camoflauge.

Rhodesian, and the 2nd pattern in EricTheHun's post - I had a coat like that and you literally disappeared in anything but snow.

Any of the Predator series of 3 color desert

I had a set of Vietnam era Jungle cammies including a cover while in the USMC back in the early 80's. You know the rip stop jungle pattern with the slanted chest pockets? URDL was what the pattern was called, I think. Maybe not the best cammo but when everyone else was wearing woodlands, they were definitely very salty. I wore them to my promotion to Corporal the C.O complimented me on them but the Sgt. Maj. just about blew a gasket. But hey as long as they were serviceable they were still authorized for wear.

Danish DPM.

I purchased a field jacket from a local army surplus. I have tried to find out the origin of the camo but have had no luck. It looks similar to the German camo here but no tan or dark brown. I think it might be Austrian... anyone have a picture of Austrian camoflage? The jacket is not "new". Thanks USMC_LB

I think my German Flectar is one of the most effective.Tiger stripe is one of the coolest looking.

Hoplophile, do you have any pics of your home-made cammies to post?
Link Posted: 3/17/2002 7:53:56 PM EDT
Eric thanks for posting the 2 pics of Austrian camo. The jacket I bought is made of the first pattern. Do you know what years they used that pattern ?
Link Posted: 3/17/2002 7:59:30 PM EDT
I actually prefer Desert camo. Circa Desert Storm. I don't know why, but the pattern just looks cool to me. TheRedGoat
