Lets talk hunting camouflage
 
Specifically for paintball. Now i know theres all sorts of discussions for milspec camo. But lets talk hunting camo with paintball in mind. This isnt necessarily an easy topic as foliage changes depending on where your playing. So ill use my general area to start us off. I live on the east coast in the dc va md area. So what do you think are the best patterns and brands? Why?

I believe the problem with hunting camo is that it is designed to trick animals, not people. There is plenty of theory behind how different camouflage actually works to trick the eye.

I usually use marpat Valken top with apx pants. I've had people wall almost on top of me. My brother uses real tree with good.effect. guess its how you play more then camo pattern

If you don't mind spending the money, look into A-TACS camo. They have some awesome patterns.

Good point of course. I personally have had good success with hunting camo in the past against humans. But that means nothing considering that these are paintball humans and not trained cadre. Its also not a good example of empirical evidence

A little bit further down here in sc mossy oak seems to work well even into the fall. It blends in very well with the underbrush.

Ive used mossy oak for spring-summer and realtree hardwoods for late season. Thats good stuff there

Does anyone remember the study the US army commissioned a while back that showed that Realtree fall is actually better camouflage in most environments than Woodland?
Multicam was better still, of course.

For the distances we play paintball at, just buy olive drab or coyote tan depending on your climate.

In my poorer days, I rocked olive nurse pants, volleyball pads, a dark green mesh football jersey, and a cheapo black mask. It worked just as well as any other camo combo I've tried.
