Camouflage clothing: copying nature
Camouflage clothing in the field of hunting has taken its cue from military practice. In the beginning hunters in military-style outfits had been a source of mild amusement for their fellow hunters, but by now word has gotten around how effective camouflage disguise can be. Today camouflage clothing are a firm component of huntung clothes - and leading manufacturers vie with each other for creating the the most innovative camo pattern.
Safety inspired by nature
The patterned fabric of the garment makes the wearer's contours become blurred against the background. This blurring of sharp contours complicates the optical perception of the respective person. Even species of game with a well-developed visuel sense will not be able to perceive the disguised hunter. Even with camoflage clothing stalking hunters need to tread carefully without causing much noise - they must also take heed of the direction of the wind. Functional hunting clothes are all-important for a hunt to take a successful and enjoyable course.
Remember to wear camoflage clothing that match your environment and the respective season. There are uncounted varieties of camo patterns. For example, camouflage clothing has a green base colour for hunting in the forest, a stone grey base for hunting in the mountain, shades of whitw for snow-covered terrain, or green-brown for hunting in open country.
Another type of camouflage is represented by structured camo clothes. In addition to the patterned colours such clothes have a structured surface. The super-structure hides the human silhouette and makes the human body dissolve and blur into one with its environment in a kind of special 3D effect. Deception and disguise are particularly important for hunting wild fowl. Camo nets are a good example for the application of structured camouflage in hunting. The Deerhunter Sneaky 3D Innovation face mask follows this example and is frequently worn for duck hunting.
Camouflage and high visibility clothes for hunters
To be disguised but at the same time visible for everyone, is this possible? Hunters don´t want to be visible for the game they are about to hunt, but for reasons of safety they should be distinctly recognizable for other marksmen and beaters. This poses no problem: Yellow, orange, red and pink are only perceived as grayscale tones by hoofed game, but are perfectly visible for human beings. It therefore makes perfect sense to combine camouflage and high visibility. The following manufactures offer hunting clothes fulfilling both functions:
Realtree is known for its camouflage pattern in high visibility orange. Fjällräven also has its own proprietary camouflage pattern.
