There are more new military and “military-grade” camouflage patterns around now than you can shake a stick at – particularly on the commercial market that was fueled by the US Army’s quest for a new family of patterns.
Unlike the US Army, you probably don’t have millions of dollars, state-of-the-art testing facilities and hundreds of soldiers at your disposal. So, if you’re looking to make an informed, objective decision regarding selecting a new and more effective camouflage pattern for your AO then you need to see how well it might work for you.
Luckily, our friends at Pine Survey in Austria have done a nice survey of different patterns and fabrics under natural conditions. See for yourself what their conclusions were: Pine Survey Camo Comparison.
