What is your most preferred pattern?

For obvious reasons of price and availability, woodland is the most commonly worn camouflage pattern.

As much as people have a dislike for the non-militarism of hunting cammo, it works VERY well in the right environment. The only problem I have with mine is that it's a little too heavy and gets too hot to wear between April and October and it's absolutely useless in green fields. I also plan my cammo usage depending on the field and time of year where possible, though most fields do have a variety of foliage which generally makes a specific pattern great in one area, but poor in another (which is where 'generic' BDUs come it; they work/don't work everywhere/anywhere.)

The most commonly-seen BDU's are as mcoupe stated.

Various teams ando/or invididuals have their own personal preferences of course, but that wasn't your poll question.

Yeah, I guess thats true, I was more intersted on personal prefrence. Guess Ishould have worded it differently.

Has anyone seen the new Marine Digital Woodland Camo , also known as MARPAT? It uses a more "Pixelized" pattern in the camo versus a waivy theme. The Canadians have a version called CADPAT. It looks like it would be a good choice, and has some colors that are useally found in the foliage around here. It even has little Marine emblems hidden in the design. ;)

Yep, MARPAT and CADPAT has been known about for quite some time now. Thanks for the info though.

As for your poll, you should edit your question to reflect what type of answer you are seeking.....what is preferred by individuals or what is commonly seen at the field?

Couldnt find anywhere in edit to change the poll, but it is ok. I just changed the question in the post instead. Thanks for the input Austin, this forum is awsome :cool:

and for my most preferred pattern, would be the german flecktarn. I like the scheme, its not so mainstream as the woodland is.

I changed the poll question for you. Hopefully, it didn't mess up the voting. :cool:

Ive got more woodland and desert bdu sets than I do civilian clothes right now, but I think Im going to buy some of the digital pattern when I get back into the game.

Rhodesian is dope, but I think performance wise the marine digital is the best on the market right now, a lot of people dont like the look up close but Ive worked around marines in the desert, they even had them in hawaii before I moved from there to texas last spring, Ive never seen any other camo that actually did blend in almost completely with the vegetation behind them.
