So I’ve got a mess of colors alot of OD Alice stuff, some coyote brown LBV gear, multicam pouches, even some DCU gear. Clothes I’ve kept it to multicam, woodland and DCU. I’m upgrading some gear and am curious on people’s thoughts and opinions on why they run what they do. I know camouflage is an area specific preference. But sometimes people come at it in a way you haven’t thought of.
Oh, you should definitely get everything in UCP.
My camouflage of choice is Carhartt. Blends in very well in my AO. Wrangler Riggs pants work well too and are very durable. I have several backpacks (blue, black) and a fanny pack if needed. Plus I carry a sorta official looking reflective vest in the pack. It all blends in quite well.
@Sheepdog556 You might want to qualify the topic with the purpose. In general I like my MARPAT’s in green and tan for hunting purposes. When I was doing the long range precision competition gig I had a mish mash of various carriers, pouches and such. When it came time for a stalk I had a ghillie cape and a couple cans of various colored spray paints as well as natural veg from the local area. For walking around town I look like your average 9-5 construction worker or a nare do well sailboat owner, on rare occasions I actually look like a well groomed business man.
I always go with black gear. That helps future proof my gear if I swap an item out.
Very good point, I use mine for hunting, some for hiking(more for practical purposes not camouflage), but ultimately I like everything to have as many purposes as possible so I’ve considered the bug out or in options. Not so worried about “grey man” as I only go to the city for work.

I went with gear in OD, Black, and now getting Coyote together.
My camo is a dark sport coat, white (or light color shirt), a tie and slacks. I’m generally not trying to blend in with nature but with other professionals working in the courthouse.
Speaking of avoiding standing out in the wrong way or place, i have a question for the point of view of a defense attorney for a cc person. Where would be appropriate to ask it?
If i was pressed into needing cammo, with my limited budget, I would opt for a version of the gilley suit idea where i could add elements as needed from my surroundings on to a neutral base of some kind. As i understand it, it’s to break up your outline and add visual components that appear to belong there. On a budget and in an ever changing crop environment, this was the only cost effective answer i could think of. I could use some ideas as well from more skilled people than I.
I just had a thought about camouflage with all of the discussion in this post.
What do you think of a shirt that had “Help Wanted” on the front. Then “Apply for work here” on the back.
I was thinking I could walk down the street with all the Antifa folks and they would never see me. They would stare right through me.
Does it work? How do you mask your scent?
